E3 2015 After Thoughts

 

 

Cordova, TN; June 22, in the year of our Lord 2015--Family Friendly Gaming, the industry leader in covering the family friendly video games is providing our unique perspective and thoughts on the E3 2015 event. I doubt you will find these thoughts echoed across many other gaming sites. Probably because too many of them are just cheerleaders for their favorite companies. Investigative journalism is rarely found in video game journalism. Which is sad. The first thought I have is the corruption is deep in video games. Nothing is being done at E3 to address it. In fact corruption could be seen on display again this year at E3. The lack of morals and ethics needs to be addressed in video games soon. This decay is rotting the entire industry from the inside out. Hopefully it gets addressed soon.

There are two things propping up the shrinking video game industry. What are the two things that are saving the industry from a complete free fall? The first one is the indie games. I know we have talked about the indie bubble bursting. If it does, then the entire video game industry is in deep trouble. The decline of the once great industry could become a mere shadow of what it once was. The second thing propping up the contracting video game industry is VR (Virtual Reality). VR has the potential to become huge. Although I expect to hear about accidents and law suits from people falling over and getting hurt thanks to having their vision completely blocked while playing a video game. Walking around and VR are going to be a real big problem. A few people falling down stairs could stunt its potential. Broken lamps and other injuries are coming thanks to the always focused on profit video game industry.

I have people ask me all the time one question. They ask me: “why is the video game industry in decline?” We all know about casual games. We all know that families are looking for fun casual experiences. We all know that active gaming on the Wii and Kinect was supported by families. The problem is the video game industry decided to go back to the macabre and morbid video games. They expect to fail to provide for families and somehow get their money. It is like bad service at a restaurant and expecting a monster tip. Families reject the macabre and morbid video games. Families reject the ultra violent video games. Sadly that is what the video game industry is focusing on. So the decline is based on the poor choices being made in too many video game companies. The loud mouth hardcore haters got their way - more macabre and morbid video games. The price is the decline of the entire industry. Maybe someone should ask: “what price will we pay for making this decision?”
