You know those games that sell OK, maybe break even or a smidge more but are not total blockbusters. You go on Xbox live after a month for those level of games and the community is dead. It sucks, you used to get dozens of total random games at this level just a generation ago. I know games are so expensive but it's starting to look like only two level of gaming will survive. The super huge 5 million+ blockbuster (COD etc), and the indie type of games with a small team. The problem is those super high end blockbusters are getting so generic to the point of boredom, and indie games are great but they lack the production muscle of a mid or big sized game (So you can't do some types of cinematic style games in that range).
What do you guys think? I just realized some of my FAVORITE games of this generation have been those medicore selling not exactly AAA titles. Guess what publishers, I didn't play Crysis 2, Homefront, Battlefield 3, Medal of Honor, etc... I am trying to vote with my dollars but when a game like Deus Ex or Syndicate is a FPS but does something a little different it doesn't sell well. Are the masses just not bored like us very hardcore gamers?
