Hopes For Next Year
1) Next Gen Gets Interesting
The PS4 and Xbox One have been out for a good while now and I still have very little interest in either. With Ys8 and Persona 5 along with a couple of others being announced I have some reason to be at least a little bit interested in PS4 but I'm really hoping that there will be more than just big name sequels in the near future. I'm really looking forward to some new IP and I'm crossing my fingers that something will get released that's going to blow my goddamn mind.
2) Less Bullshit
This one probably won't happen because bullshit makes money for publishers but I can dream. Less crappy DLC, less day 1 drama, less glitchy and unfinished bullshit. I'm hoping that at some point in the next year publishers will have some kind of epiphany and think "oh, maybe we should stop fucking customers up the asshole all the time" and there will be a lot less to be angry about.
3) Less Drama
There was a lot of drama this year. Gamergate is still ongoing and people can't seem to shut up about misogyny, harassment, doxing and all sorts of other stupid bullshit. I'm glad something like Gamergate exists to put shitty journalists on the spot but I think everyone would be better off if the drama in general just stopped.
I'd say that about sums up my top 3 wishes for gaming in 2015. Let's hope it'll be fun!
