Sgygus: So much yammer.
"I think there is a healthy renaissance in the indy game market though. This is where we're going to see innovation if you're not too scared off by the relative low-end graphics. Event then, I think if an indy game becomes popular enough. Its 1st edition can be a proof of concept and provide exposure for a crowd funded indy AAA sequel. "
Kimpak: js34603: Video games are ending! The sky is falling! This mole on my arm is probably cancer!Video games aren't going anywhere. The way we play them and the people that make them are going to change. Maybe not for the best.Its a game of Civ. This particular golden age has ended. We'll just have to wait til the next one.
Jon iz teh kewl: EvilEgg: Fark social games! God, how I hate them. Video games are for when I am feeling decidedly anti-social.you know they make MULTI PLAYER GAMES??
Kimpak: I agree and disagree with that. I don't work in the game industry so I can only work with my own theories. But, I think these 50 million dollar games could in fact be made at the same quality for less money. You just have to dismantle the bureaucracy behind it. That alone would save a large chuck o cash. Advertising is another area, I think games currently are best advertised by word of mouth, blogs and social media. All of which is practically free. I have never, ever, ever bought or become aware of a major title game by a T.V. commercial that probably cost thousands (hundreds of thousands?) to film and air. Lets try to bring the costs of development down.
Znuh: If I pay for it, I want a full copy that I OWN.
Znuh: As for Steam, it's appropriately titled. You don't own the code. You don't own the product. It's quite happy to evaporate like, well, Steam
Dragonflew: Yeah, let me know when we're all supposed to suddenly stop playing video games to make this stupid headline truthful.
HST's Dead Carcass: Is this like when the RIAA was trying to prove Piracy was killing music because sales were down 9% but they had 23% less artists than the year before?
Jon iz teh kewl: cman: Quantum computing is around the corner.Prepare for the next revolution.It is very possible that we will finally have the power to have something like real VR (not that Nintendo crap)[www.doolwind.com image 468x335]
