This poll is now closed.
Yeah, this era where the biggest developers & publishers try to milk their franchises for all they're worth, while taking a huge continuous dump on their fanbases. Or you could disagree with that. Just speak with your votes. I can imagine someone thinking perhaps even 2 eras are ongoing right now, just explain in your post if that's the case.

Happy voting!

- Mega Man killed off.
- Devil May Cry as we know it killed off.
- Resident Evil as we know it killed off.
- The most hated Final Fantasy getting 2 sequels.
- Quality JRPG's few & far between
- Shameless DLC scamming
- Pay 2 Play games (or you could play for free and grind endlessly)

Tons more happened in this generation. Say whatever you want, but a ton of dark stuff happened.
