    I've been a gamer for 30 years. The industry is not dying, rather the industry is not providing what the market wants.

    While mobile devices will gain some limited market share they will never replace home gaming on HDTV's and surround sound. The consoles hardware has become quite dated and the software releases are nothing short of stale for the most part. Add in the money grabbing DLC marketing and is it any wonder that gamers are saying no to the current releases.

    When the next generation consoles are released this same site will blog about the return of modern gaming. Happens every cycle.

    Quoted from Chudmeat:

    goatdan said:there are a ton of cheap early SS and EM titles that I think are just as much if not more fun than newer ones that you can get for $500 or less all day.
    Please show me where they are listed because CL and ebay all show $1000 and more for early SS and EMs.

    Patience and they are there. I had a Bally Space Time EM for sale on Craig's List for $500. I picked up a Gottlieb EM Cleopatra for $380 off of E-Bay. Those deals are not common but they are still possible.
