I saw this thread on Slashdot about how the major game companies have lost their love for games and replaced it with love of money. It points to an article about how the game industry cares nothing about gameplay any more.
A rebuttal was posted thereafter basically saying that the problem is not with the game industry but with the perception of the game industry.
What do you think? Whereas I certainly do not begrudge game makers their desire to make money, have the big game companies lost touch with what gamers - serious gamers - are looking for? Is now the percet time for independent like TTG to break forth and return gaming to the glory days when games from independent companies were the best games to have?
