Who voted for digital downloads over physical copies?

 

 

Cordova, TN; March 28, in the year of our Lord 2016--Family Friendly Gaming, the industry leader in covering the family friendly video games is asking a very pertinent and important question to all gaming media outlets. Who voted for digital downloads over physical copies? Family Friendly Gaming never got a say in this industry change that some are calling a redefinition. After all retail chains still receive physical copies. Online retailers still receive physical copies. Gaming media outlets have received physical copies of games for review for decades. Something changed at some recent point in time. Where is the outcry from gaming media outlets that this was a bad change? Where is the call to return to the traditional way of video games being provided for reviews? Well besides Family Friendly Gaming. Who else will stand up and say they do not want the damage done by digital downloads. Instead we want the better way of doing things with the physical copies.

I know some of ya’ll are reading this and laughing your heads off thinking I am not serious. I am serious. I am as serious as a heart attack. When there is a major shift in the industry that impacts all of us, someone had to start it, and others had to follow. There have been plenty of outcries against the direction many video games have tried to take the industry. Yet with this one important issue too many of the gaming media outlets have been deafly silent. Why? Do they buy into the fanatical and zealot environmental wacko idea that digital downloads cost the environment less? Servers draw power, and additional hard drives have to be purchased. Is the end result less or more? Consumers losing their rights is not a good thing for any of us. How does that help the environment? I can't see how video games being made disposable is helping the environment.

So if there was not some vote to move the industry this direction, it can be fixed. Since there is no official document saying this is the way video games must go, then we can return to the proper course. Since the majority of the gamers did not march for digital downloads, we can happily return to physical copies. Since we did not go to any company and say we wanted to do away with physical copies, then they are now capable of returning to how things had been done for decades. When something is not broke, don’t try to fix it. Too many PR and Marketing people missed that truth. Instead they broke something that was already working fine. I hope they return to traditional values, instead of the warped blowing in the wind worldly ones.


God bless,
