Not expecting the industry to pander to me. All I have to do is look at the sales numbers for Call of Duty and Halo to see that it won't do that.
What I am saying, however, is that when the industry stops giving me what I want, I'll stop playing.
At the same time, as I said, I'm not too big on retro games . I always wanted to play Phantasy Star 1, but when I got it on the Genesis Collection, I found myself being bothered by how unrefined it was, compared to later JRPG's and not being able to play more than a couple hours of it.
And for modern retro-styled games, I loved the Scott Pilgrim game, because that did remind me of many afternoons at the local bowling alley, but on the other hand, I didn't like Retro City Rampage, even if I did chuckle at many of the references. I liked Mega Man 9, but thought there was no need to keep the 8-bit style for Mega Man 10. Nostalgia has its place, but we also have to evolve. There was that article on the aborted attempt at a Streets of Rage reboot and I was happy to see that they did not do the Double Dragon Neon thing and, instead, attempted to bring the series into modern times.
I feel that games must change with the times, yes, and I am glad they have I love things like Red Dead Redemption and God of War and Heavy Rain and Journey and Demon's/Dark Souls. On the other hand, when things change in way I don't like, I am not going to pretend that I like them and I am not going to force myself to play them. I hope I can play games until the day I die, but as I said, if things change too much in a direction I don't like, I will not stick with the hobby.
