2018, what a great year in video game industry. I can remember disasters like fall of Commodore and rise of Sony Playstation and optical discs, but i cant remember any tight spot in history where multiple high profile game industry leaders have failed at the same time. EA-Dice tries to rip players from money with new releases, latest BFV, which was some kind of turd ball of SJW and actually being Bf 1.5. Blizzard usually has been a very trustworthy player which does not take big risks, but apparently Blizzard has lost its touch trying to pull a major franchise to mobile devices. Diablo was one of the icon of hardcore gaming, it apparently is not anymore. Mobile platform is going ever to be HC. The ruling platform for video games is simply PC, because it has most calculation power in CPU and GPU, and it has WASD. Even modern consoles are not hardcore, because twirling thumbs on a pad is just not equivalent to WASD. And u can forget motion and VR, so far they have failed the potential. Bethesdas Fallout 76 is a disaster, which is hard to believe from a company which brought us successful games like Oblivion and Skyrim. Ironically, appears that console game, Red Dead Redemption 2, is already a success.
