I’ve never seen dry summer games like this in the past (Photo: Carl Court/Getty Images)
Readers often ignore new games and wonder why the publishers became so secretive in 2022.
It is clearly not a matter of opinion, but a matter of truth. It’s never been the worst in the history of video games going down in 1983, and yet many people eagerly dismiss it and argue that the problem isn’t just that they don’t find it funny, but that it’s not a problem at all.
Usually people say something like play old games or reduce your backlog or insist they’ve been fine so they don’t know why they want to worry. However, this did not address the big picture. It ignores the fact that the gaming industry has finally come to a standstill and has not been able to release new games at the same time as before or, perhaps more importantly, talk about new games.
I don’t have a degree in business, but I thought that if you had a loss of production, the way to make up for it is to engage with your audience more than usual, keep them assured that new products are coming, and maybe reveal- nor others before you. should, etc. Make it clear that there is a lot to look forward to and emphasize that this is not simply a temporary situation. But that’s not what happened. The opposite happens.
I like to play in the game industry more than I like; I’m eager to find out the cause of this problem, but when they do, people often say it’s not believable. I don’t agree with allowing the production of E3 for example, but I understand that companies like to pay for it and support their rivals; Developers don’t like to stop working on games that will come out for Christmas, demos and clicks in the summer.
I don’t agree, I think one is more positive than the other, but in terms of it, I understand why. But what are they doing now? I can’t get everything right now.
This can only be true if they don’t talk about anything, because they have nothing to talk about but we know it’s true. Microsoft announced a bunch of games ago, and Sony has God Of War Ragnarok coming out this year, with many more on the way. We know this from the simple logic of the universe, but instead it’s just the fact that everything is unlocked nowadays.
Sony is the worst but their company is Microsoft and so are all the other publishers. If they don’t know, the ball will stop, if Nintendo and all the people do their best to keep the fans informed and the new games will come at a high speed.
So there are no new games to play and no new games to wait for, or at least not beyond a logo and a teaser trailer. I was never too bored to become a gamer, so I’m not surprised that video game sales have been lower than in previous years. It’s not just because of the pandemic, it’s also because of the withdrawal from the video game industry and he refused to be fired.
No one could have prepared or predicted the pandemic, but game companies have made the worst of a bad situation, and I see no end in sight.
