The most fun i've ever had playing video games was with the wing commander series. At 30 almost 31 years of age it's sad to see wing commander die in the hands of EA. I don't know if EA got so big that they lost the ability to innovate or their just stupid but their is so much that could have been done with the WC franchise. After loosing WC, system shock and mech worrior i'm starting to worry about the PC gaming industry, it's almost like publishers are trying to sabotage PC gaming. Now we are going to get a wave of vietnam games, copy cats are going to release their versions and cry that PC games can't sell instead of trying to innovate. IT's almost like publishers are clueless, i mean so many people cry out for SS3 and nothing. I know their are some issues about who owns the rights to System shock but with demand being so great their is a way to big bucks with the game and keep everybody happy so i feel their is a lack of effort. Fallout3, Grim Fandango2 would also be very good sellers but their does not seem to be any sign of them being made. I really don't get what's going on in the industry, it's almost like the people who make mods are the keeping pc gaming alive cause they actually listen to what pc gamers want! One could just come in the blue's forums and listen to people start a gaming company and make a killing if they had the money!
Sorry for the long erratic rant but it's heart breaking to see PC gaming fall apart!
