Over the years of development, the Game industry has undergone many transformations. There have been trend trends formed from the gaming community. As Den Vau said, “someone comes, someone goes and someone stays”, those trends are also changing over time. As a natural law, people tend to eliminate evil. So let’s find out what elements the gaming community needs to keep and eliminate in 2021.
Perhaps we’ll start with the most visible part, which is to find out what the gaming community should leave behind. First, it is impossible not to mention the difficultness of the gaming community for game makers. They always tend to demand things harshly. Take Cyperpunk 2077 as an example. Try asking, if CD Projekt RED is not under an extremely large pressure from the gaming community, will they be in a hurry to release such an incomplete product. Cyperpunk 2077 can be said to be a strategic card, an important move for CD Projekt RED in 2020, but because of the impatience of the gaming community, they were forced to release a product “less than 10. “.
And yet, there was a problem that had stuck with it for many years. It is advertising and in-app purchases, especially for mobile games. If the player wants a quality product from the developers, then they need to have sponsors pouring money into the investment. Many players want to be “free to play” but get annoyed when their game has advertisements. Game developers deserve more equal treatment to be able to give people the best products they can do.
It’s the gamers side, what about the developer side? There are two equally painful problems that need to be resolved immediately. That’s the scarcity of consoles and the size of storage. Easily seen in 2020 that was the launch of the Playstation 5 and XBox Series X. This event attracted all gamers across the globe. It was so hot that people almost bought out the Playstation 5 on the first day of its release. That is unfair for gamers who are also in need. Sony can completely produce more numbers to meet the expectations of the fans.
And even when I got the Playstation 5 in hand that many people wanted, the joy was not so bad when I downloaded a few games, the machine was… out of space. Indeed, with the rapid development of the current game industry, the products will be pushed to the highest quality. Which means that each game will have a huge, if not an extreme, size. This is probably a sore problem for gamers. It is up to the developers to solve this problem.
Fortunately, besides those shortcomings, we will also have new opportunities in this year 2021. Developers like Naughty Dog and CD Projekt Red have been creating titles with good storylines to impress players. They also began to listen more, to absorb, and to develop better things. Some publishers have opened up more accessibility, making everyday gaming a pleasant living habit for users. And one thing in particular, the different gaming platforms are showing signs of cross-support. This narrowed the gap between players playing Playstation, Xbox or even PC.
In addition, we can see the trend of indie titles flourishing. This is a good way to deal with gamers’ economic problems. They only need to spend a small amount to be able to own a quality indie game with high replay value. Obviously, the gaming community still has a bright future ahead. As long as they can get rid of good trends and keep good things going.
