Everyone’s excited for Titanfall. We get it. But where are the other games? Considering “Backwards Compatibility” isn’t an option right now, most gamers are feeling a little jipped and wanna know why they can’t have any more games.
If you’re like me you probably sold all your old games and consoles just to get enough to split the difference with someone on a next-gen console and now you have nothing but the dark corners of the internet to look for entertainment. So my question is why. Why, gaming companies, didn’t you hop on the next-gen hype that would have undoubtedly sold itself?
Well this ridiculous console war certainly didn’t help. That accompanied by the fact that both the PS4 and the Xbox One were so entirely rushed for the holidays that they’re buggier than a Grinch smile, created doubt. However the loyalty (or ignorance, I’m not really sure anymore) of our generation of gamers proved true as we helplessly bought into these new systems with the promise of “innovation.”
So now we’ve all got our consoles and we’ve played through Ryse more times than its beta testers (obviously…) and we’re ready for more.
Well…? Where is it? Where’s all the games?!
Sure we’ve got sequels and upgrades and well… We don’t have Titanfall but we will! Is that it?
We should have probably foreseen this but us gamers are a merciful bunch that forgive and forget way too quickly. We are complacent for titles that have worn out their franchise name and carelessly throw our wallets at DLC that could have easily been included in the release.
Honestly I imagined a world where, with a new console to make new games on and a new generation of gamers on the rise that we’d see something… I don’t know… New. But it seems companies nowadays are busy with making every game that was released in the last two years compatible with the next-gen systems so they can charge us for more money and make nearly 100% profit.
Is it really that hard to get a team together and make something innovative that can bring the world of gaming out of this Dark Ages? We have two brand new gaming consoles and nothing to show for it. I’m no professional so my opinion can only count for so much but isn’t it their job to entertain us? Why are they still in business and our itch for a good game still not scratched? Because we keep listening to this promise of bigger and better when, in all reality, the horizon is looking quite… empty.
*Sigh* But I digress. If it weren’t for these game companies, we wouldn’t have any of the games that we’ve come to love and cherish. I’d like to think they are doing their best. I’d like to think they are trying their hardest to come up with the next big thing. I just hope its not Halo 5. Or Call of Duty: Future Poltergeist Ops. I guess what I’m trying to say is Titanfall needs to hurry up and release.
