i havn't actually bought a game since deus ex human revolution, and i used to be on the look out for deals, but i barely loaded the steam sales page this year.
it's all the same shit with a different smell.
We need ego raptor to do a sequelitis on gaming as a whole.
I'm also sick of this focus on multiplayer gaming. Played one multiplayer game, played them all. RTSes will be RTSes. MMORPGs are the same cookie-cutter BS. Shooters are all some flavour combination of Deathmatch, Capture the Flag, and Domination.
I'm much more interested in playing a single-player or co-operative game set in a well-crafted world with solid mechanics that not only play well, but also help tell the tale or flesh out said world. No more of this competitive shit, please.
Saw this coming a long time ago, and honestly I think Gabe was right. People are tired of paying 60 dollars for games that turn out to be shit. I got burned out on it after buying MW2 and Blops which both sucked. Smaller, lower priced releases are probably going to be the way of the future.
Repostin dis for the third time, since it's more relevant than ever.

I'm not sick of MP at all. SP games are nice and I do enjoy a story, but even games like Stalker can only be played a certain amount before they get tiresome. In MP, you are (or rather, should be) guaranteed new experiences all the while.
The problem isn't a MP focus - the problem is the same MP focus.
You may already know this, but, while the budget may be big, most of it is going to art, as graphics have "improved" so fucking much that they need to spend the majority of the budget on it. It fucking sucks but hey, what can you do?
also for mainstream gaming, graphics and explosions = $$
