I’m going to tempt fate and say that we’re about close enough to the release of Sony and Microsoft’s new consoles that we pretty much know what we’re going to be getting on day one. Well, we don’t know how much we’re going to have to pay for them just yet, but for the sake of argument, let’s say the price isn’t going to be a factor in the following rant. With everything we do know, I don’t think either of the major console makes have done a good enough job on selling their new platforms whatsoever.
Of all the hotly debated topics surrounding the early days of the previous console generation, there was one trend that started happened so often that people eventually stopped getting mad about it and began accepting it as a normal occurrence of the industry. Today, nobody bats an eye when a publisher comes out and announced yet one more video game remake.
I keep looking forward to this coming year to see what video games I should be saving my money and storing all my excitement juice for. I have a jar, don’t ask, you don’t want to know. And yet, after looking at the list of confirmed games for 2020, I have to say: It’s looking pretty light.
