Sailor Moon Classic Opening [2/2]
They kept making insanely lavish and nonsensical displays of spectacular whizz-bang, despite that being exactly the kind of game most susceptible to trading after one week because there was nothing left to do with it. And now they’re discovering that putting so many insanely expensive eggs into one fragile and easily breakable basket is maybe not the most sustainable business model ever.

Could it also be that our definition of what constitutes a “game” is shifting away from the cereal-novel escapism of surface single-player narratives with obligatory multiplayer tacked on? On one end of the spectrum emerges the indie title: small development team, narrowly released, intelligent if limited. At the other end, the impossibly huge, mega-open-world behemoths that promise not just to be a thing you play, but a place you visit.
Let the publishers squirm and kick and whine. Their mode of operation is quickly being outpaced by the growing intelligence of the consumer and the proliferation of quality titles across accessible platforms.
