Even though we aren’t getting a proper E3 this year, we still got the annual PC Gaming show. The show didn’t have a ton of huge new announcements, but we did get some new trailers for games like Outlast Trials, Twin Mirror, and Weird West. And some new info about Mafia Definitive Edition and Total War Saga: Troy.

That all looked boring. I feel like master race not getting any good games. Honestly i feel like now days gaming is very unpolished, and uninspired, and most games made, especially early access games, dead on arrivial. Especially games that people are making multiplayer. Why and how some developers are wasting time and money i never understand. Not to mention so much copying each other, remakes, hd remakes, etc etc.

I feel like pc gaming market is like mmorpg market, alot of paws in cookie jar, spliting quality, population of players, and looking for their own cookies. Instead of learning how to make their own cookies, the jar to enjoy and open their own shop.

I feel like allowing games to be allowed early access is big mistake, yes alot of games wouldnt get to be made, but honestly how fast some of those games developers stop updating and drop support. Bait and switch.

Guess i just miss the magic of early 2000s. WoW, Diablo 2, Startcraft, age of empires 2, asherons call, warcraft 3, unreal tournament, unreal, baldurs gate 2, just few examples were quality passion, spirit, ideas, was a fine wine, now i feel like watered downed $5 wine, and is consumed just to get the buz.

P.S. edit that why i feel like console gaming is the leader in developing video games, and the lines between consoles and pc are getting thinner with each generation. Which is good thing, but PC really needs their own exclusives.  Here hoping and looking at you New World.
