Recently, one of the editor of the video game magazine Game Informer left his job because, and I’m paraphrasing here, he “didn’t recognize the industry anymore.” It’s a sentiment that I, and I’m sure many of you, can relate to. The video game industry has changed dramatically in the last few years, and as someone who loves to play big action game on consoles, I sometimes wonder if I’ll be able to find games to play in five or ten years. But at the same time, there are new avenues for gaming that are opening up every day.
What got me thinking about this was that my pal Raymond, who you may know better as RPad of rpad.tv, did some interviews with Michael Pachter, an industry analyst with Wedbush Securities, and Greg Essig, the head of business development at FunPlus, in which he briefly chatted with them about their upcoming talks at DICE Europe 2015, in which they’ll be discussing these very topics. Though he also asked them about Game Of Thrones, The Avengers, and Sigur Ros.
Anyway, I thought you might want to check them out. You can see Raymond’s story here.
