Since When Did Advertising Become So Childish?

One thing I've noticed recently is how advertising - more specifically mobile advertising - is getting down right childish and adolescent? I've noticed it a lot before, during, and after the Galaxy S IV event, certain other phone companies have been launching advertising campaigns that don't really say much other than "mine's better than yours" - Have we gone back into primary school or something?

I just want to do a short article of what is going on in the gaming community and yes I know that this subject has been in the opinion of plays for years but let me ask you something, if you are a PSN member or an Xbox Live member do you feel like a valued customer?

Have Video Games Started to Exclude Newcomers?

Take a look at the most popular games of this year and last year, you'll all notice that they're sequels to previous games of the same title. FarCry 3, Black Ops 2, HALO 4, Dead Space 3, Mass Effect 3, Crysis 3, Resident Evil 6, Assassin's Creed III; they're all sequels, or a part of an existing title that require some knowledge of the previous to play the campaign. This got me thinking, are video games excluding newcomers?

Free-to-Play Is It The Way to Go?

It's been reported that Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli aims to have Crytek fully commit to working on and releasing only AAA Free-to-Play titles within two to five years. The idea sounds great to me, with games like Crysis and Far Cry being such huge successes. I wouldn't mind playing the next instalment of Far Cry for free - who wouldn't?
