This is a common lament I hear among gamers in a few different variations. "Why isn't there anything original?" "I'm tired of the same old thing."
To paraphrase Louis C.K., we are living through THE GOLDEN AGE OF GAMING and nobody is happy! There is a cornucopia of unique, creative gaming experiences for every which platform from home systems to our phones that we now have in our pockets!
And with all of that content, and a torrent of informational systems available to us to identify the RAINBOW of unique flavors of gaming that surely covers EVERYONE'S varied tastes, we insist on emptying our wallets into the generic trough of big budget military shooters.
Let's couple our consumerism with a tad bit of research, and support games that deserve it. The Call of Dutys will do just fine, but smaller studios live and die on razor thin margins, and our purchasing decisions determine their fates, and the artistic/creative fate of the industry.
Oh, and congratz to us for comic strip #700 :)
