BBC: E3 was full of dross

BBC reporter Marc Cieslak has said “innovation was in short supply” at E3 this year, with the majority of the show floor being taken up by “shooters and sequels.”

Speaking on the latest episode of BBC technology program Click, Cieslak said, “There were literally thousands of new games on show at E3, adding, “unfortunately many of them are a bit mediocre.”

Cielak went on to say that finding “gaming greats amongst all of the dross” was “almost as difficult as navigating the mass hordes out on the show floor.”

This is a worrying trend which also seems to concern industry analyst Michael Pachter who recently said the “games industry is in persistent decline”.
