| How f*ckin' sad is that for the gaming industry? |
Welcome to the real world.
In art (yes, I think video game design and such is like any other arts), there's much stuff that makes it look useless or degraded. Like the music, I could list so many examples of retarded stuff like Justin Bieber and the likes, movies also don't go far behind, Hollywood sometimes comes out with not only unexciting, but also painful to watch movies. Then there's paintings, modern art seems like minimalistic boxes made out of sh*t, while long time ago it was with perfections like Mona Lisa.
Seriously, if there's a possibility of it to go mainstream, it will not pass the chance. There's always better games, such as R*, it is even said by themselves - they're ROCKstars, the people of good music, so they also make good games. Most good music, as I can see, is also made by Indie culture people (don't confuse them with amateurs of youtube, performers need to go to school, not just flail their hands in the air and scream their cries), so there's loads of good Indie games too.
I don't want to explain any more, it's so easy to see that you can't complain about something you can't change. You can only add something to it.
