Still, the day that I do get into this again I’d be willing to take a year off if I had to in order to indulge. Because for some reason coming up on that era provides a certain kind feeling that just sticks with a person.
Sadly, I’m not sure if the modern day gamers other than the hard core ones feel the same. So I decided to look up the current status of the industry itself. I always felt strongly about the latest consoles really dropping the ball big time when it was at its peak. Too many manufacturing issues, bad choices and lack of major titles were causing some friction after failing a very promising release. Which hasn’t had the same impact as let’s say Call Of Duty in its prime or the original Halo and follow up. These titles set the example and had everyone was playing at its peak even if they never touched a controller in their lives.
An era that was so popular it created a specific genre on You Tube and even went worldwide with continuous stories whether it was good or bad. It should be thriving today for this reason but from what I have come to find out the industry is actually struggling to uphold a certain standard that has gamers in a rage. Recent videos reveal some even going as far as saying that it’s probably best that another industry crash happens due to the potential reality that titles are being far to monetized for its own good. Which by speculation is being geared towards a younger generation that wouldn’t know any better to support this method.
For this reason fans of this genre are beginning to steer away despite how much they dislike the idea of doing so. There’s the risk of simply letting things go to waste with little potential of reemergence. Especially when consoles are most likely going to transition into computer gaming or the smart phone market. Nintendo has already considered tackling this before its competitors and since Playstation’s Netflix like gaming service had been created the chances of future consoles for Sony may be miniscule. The last crash happened in 1983 in North America due to a heavy wave of blackmarket issues that eventually made the games seem too generic to garner interest anymore.
And whether or not hardcore gamers stick around will be the talk of the town when it does.
