This generation of gaming has, in my mind started to stagnate. To clarify, this generation started with the release of the Wii U in 2012 and the PS4 and Xbox One the next year. Innovation and creativity have traditionally been a huge factor in game development. Considering gamings roots as a nearly dead industry in the 80s, developers had no choice but to innovate in order to draw a crowd. Now that gaming has gotten to the point that it rivals even the film industry, it feels like its started to let some of that success go to its head. Now, theres entirely too much focus on gamings past, leading to a regression in new content in favor of older games. Theres also a safety net of successful franchises that developers dont want to stray too far from.
