Gaming Trends That Need to Stop – Announcements

With video games becoming more and more mainstream, is it possible that the creative output of the gaming industry will suffer? That’s a debate that requires some serious contemplation. It is the sort of debate held by business analysts that bore you with bar graphs and statistical analysis of financial successes regarding proven formulas. Screw that, let’s just be super critical and make fun of the developers. Off we go:

question marks
Example #5: AnnouncementsDear gaming industry,

Please stop announcing games that have no title, no screen shots, and no information of any kind. We shouldn’t be informed every time you start working on an unannounced title. We already know. You are a developer. It’s pretty common knowledge that you are going to be making some sort of video game in the future. Also, please stop saying “When it’s done.” As fashionable as it was to say that 5 years ago, the novelty has worn thin. Just say “We don’t know”. This probably seems like a lot to ask, so let me put it bluntly. Stop treating us like morons.

Your pal,
The Gaming Community

Worst Offenders: ID Software, Rare
