On the one hand, gaming has never been better. On the other, it's never been worse.
I'd say never been better in terms of choice and quality. However, a lot of exploitation of people who don't think they have a choice or else have an addiction.
There was plenty of funny business decades ago, too. You could easily spend $50 of 90's money on some crappy game that you couldn't return. Or you'd have to go to the arcade to play some games and you'd be forced there to pump quarters in every minute. As long as something makes money legally (and often even if it isn't), you'll find someone ready to exploit the hell out of the people who are willing to pay.
