Op Ed

Yahoo! Games - Is the Video Game Industry Dying? Thanks Joao.
Investors are also comparing current sales numbers to the cycle's peak, back when the Wii was a must-have device that retailers couldn't keep on store shelves. Now that demand for Nintendo's system has effectively dried up, the numbers can't compete.

If not for the recession, those Wii owners might have kept the industry on a fairly even keel. But the longevity of the economic downturn, coupled with the rise of the smart phone and the app market with its cheap games, stole much of Nintendo's audience away.

As I see it, there's quite a few gems in the indie gaming scene - but the overwhelming majority of it is flotsam.
Isn't it that way in the big publisher scene too?

It's probably an order of magnitude worse in the indie scene. Then again, the cost of a bad idea is much lower in indie gaming, so there's invariably going to be more of an attitude of "throw some ideas at the wall and see what sticks".
