How can I answer this question as if I know what next generation gaming is going to be like before it gets here?

I'll wait till the next gen consoles are out, and see how they do, then I'll make my decision. If I like the games, then I'm in.

If only it were that simple. I love the games from yesteryear. And this generation has provided many great gems to experience. The problem is the bigger picture which is the business model of gaming. The "micro transaction", endless add on nonsense that would have otherwise been part of the entire experience. With the advent of storage capacity and different ways to deliver goods came the nickel and diming peddling by companies seeking to expand their quarterly profits at the gamer's expense.

That's my biggest issue. What gaming does to not actually meet my needs is give me incentive to invest time into new games that provide no real entertainment or value, just half assed and poorly realized worlds that expect you to pay more to experience "fully" after you've already shelled 60 dollars out for the privilege of playing it. It's not so much about "stopping" gaming as it is not buying into the new generation, and instead playing everything I already own as the alternative.

I suppose that I see it a bit differently but I respect your opinion here.

It is easy enough for me to dismiss specific bad solutions that don't pertain or address my needs. I don't buy into every DLC scheme out there but I do in fact, support the ones that I feel add value to my experience.

I also disagree with the broad brush you paint here with regards to the quality modern gaming. While that criticism can be applied to many games, I think that there are so many other great games that the poor and mediocre titles can be easily overlooked.
the bitter truth is that in the grand scheme of things, the average piece of junk is probably more meaningful than our criticism designating it so. ~ Anton Ego

I am not hopeful for next gen at all. This will probably be my last gen of gaming.
