After 8 years, what do you take away from this generation?

Gen went on for far too long

Technology is moving at such a rapid pace now and I'd much rather see a 4 year or less gen

There needs to be a major disruption in console tech where new ones will come out as often as people buy a new computer or phone.

Mainstream sensibilities have become fully ingrained, and the only way to get games that appeal to gamers is to go Indie.

The extraordinarily helpful tip you get when the game is auto saving. "Don't turn off your computer when the game is saving."


You... you're a madman!

I learned that the gaming community is stupid and biased. When I was a teen call of duty was just a generic war game, I can't understand why there is so much sales on it today. I also don't understand how LoL could become so big, especially now with better mobas out now. It all comes down to word of mouth advertising, if your friends play it then you feel like you should as well. Too many followers this gen and not enough individual thinkers like in the 90s to early 2000s.
Recommended games: Guild Wars 2, The Witcher 2, Skyrim, Batman Arkham city
Terrible games: Dark Souls, Demon Souls, Diablo 3, X-Com, War Z, EVE Online.

Battlefield will never be as good as it once was

This. OMG this, since they turned it into a "me too" title to attempt to compete with CoD, it has been absolute ass

-That the industry itself is broken, it doesn't know who its audience is/what its audience wants, and it's built itself a publishing/marketing/distribution system that just cannot be maintained for much longer without something giving way (quite possibly several entire companies)

-That gamers are mostly embarrassing, don't know what they want, don't know what was actually good about the classics they claimed to love, and are mostly a bunch of entitled crybabies

-That shooting men from a first-person perspective just isn't engaging at all anymore. Other first-person things, sure! But not gunplay.
By Grabthar's Hammer, what a savings.
