I have been reading and watching people that think the upcoming generation will become the worst generation ever. I personally disagree with it The last generation was perhaps the worst when it comes to business practices overall, but i still think it was a generation filled with good games. The shady microtransactions and taking content out of the game, only to put it in as DLC on the store.
Personally, i think games have grown a lot this generation with great storytelling, improved gameplay and overall better games. There are still games that rip the customer off, but it's much clearer in my opinion who actually does that kind of bad business. You should vote with your wallet when you buy a game, about what you find is good business practices and what is a good game.
The gaming industry also has grown when it comes to games overall. With indie games and even blockbuster games trying new things. We also have a bad side to gaming, milking games to extreme lengths. Guitar Hero, sports games and Call of Duty unfortunately. But we also have loads of new ip's that gave us amazing stories this generation.
Coming to the end of this console generation we experience a lot of sequels, because of the long generation this was not unusual. I really hope the new generation will give us a breath of fresh air with new original ideas and perhaps reviving old franchises that we love.
I hope bad games and bad business practices will not be as big this generation and i also believe it won't be that bad. I try to be positive with looking forward to good games and voting with my wallet. Does anyone feel the same?
