I would actually find that very amusing.

I personally think we are already in a waking nightmare as Kojima may never direct another Metal Gear Solid game again.

All games are digital only.

Dropping DLC and changing price with it.

Physical copies of the game will no longer exist and the piracy will continue.

All games are released as unfinished, buggy mess, and you need to wait a month for the 20GB update before you can actually play them.

Oh, wait, that's already happening!

Another thing that could happen is people start thinking trophies are important part of games...

The video game market crashes like it did in the 80's. Thankfully I don't see this happening again.

Gamers get to pick for the price of games and DLC.

Only small indie developers make games.

I've been playing video games since 1980. Loot box micro transactions are the worst thing I've ever seen. Now they're starting to do it with single player. I might just be done with modern gaming. I have a game collection that spans 30 years 500 games. I hear the kiddies like to throw $20 or $30 at a game just to role the dice. I'm not going to do it. I can take the same amount to a real casino and have a chance to win thousands. I have better odds at the casino then loot crates. At least in a casino by law they have to pay back a certain amount. I've hit my share of jackpots and walked out with thousands.

Worst scenario: Home consoles are extinct, all games go to win 10 PC, mobile phones are the new handhelds.

This has literally been one of a very few of the best things that has happened in the past 20 years to gaming. I think it's been about that long (well, when did Half-Life 2 come out? 2004? so 13 years) since I've purchased a hard copy of a game and I don't miss it one bit.

More selection, greater availability

Cheaper games

Can take my library anywhere my PC goes

No big collection that requires multiple boxes and tons of space to store all my games.

Only downside is I can't trade in my games, but given that I probably spend about 20-30 dollars on average per game, I can live with that.

Was pissed when Sniper Elite 4 came out and they wanted me to drop money on singleplayer DLC for weapon skins and rifles. Not even any extra maps, just some token rifles. It's like, c'mon guys, make the game fully featured, include all the shit in there.

Cheap, cheap, cheap.

That doesn't mean it needs to go digital only. I like to physically have the media I buy. And I'm not the only one.

Digital give too much power to companies. For example, companies have no problem with single player DLC.

I know the whining about the DLC is more about gamer greed, and they are not a true negative element in gaming. It is to show that companies can easily do things that some gamers do not like.

More divisive actions by game companies.
