IF you don't mind me saying, what I'm seeing here and at other points in time is a failure to acknowledge the good things. If you're like me, sometimes you might assume that the good things are implied/obvious, but they're not. You gotta make sure to balance the criticism with at least equal praise, otherwise you come off like you're shitting on everything when you might not be trying to.

It's advancement for sure, and it's hard and important work. However, I've written before about the growing Aesthetic and Mechanics mismatch in games. It's complicated because they are in a sense the same, but I see the non aesthetic advancements as significantly more needed for games in the future.

We all have our pet topics. And we all have been guilty of saying "However [insert non sequitur pet topic here]. I probably could've responded in a nicer way. Initially, I thought of writing, "Yeah, of course it's true that games can have fantastic graphics and still suck. I mean, everybody know tha--." At this point in my thought process I felt less nice.
