Well personally its a two way thing as a consumer I buy sequels after having a good experience with a previous game in the same series.
However for developers they make sequels because it's a safe bet making a recognised brand.
Relating to the industry shrinking back down I was just discussing this with a friend the other day how so many games are costing millions to make with all sorts of teams involved one for voice acting one for graphics an orchestra etc.
It goes to show the gaming industry won't be able to sustain it because with this new phase in gaming a lot of big brands have gone down.
I mean Mortal Kombat was one of the biggest names in the 90's but now Midway has been swallowed up by Warner Bros.
It could even spell the end of the consoles as we know it I mean majority of people don't care about graphics it's enough for them to be acceptable and play well.
This is proven by sales of the Iphone games which a lot of are free or cost a couple of pounds which obviously means development cost were low.
I personally believe that the gaming industry has got it really wrong.
Things will change because it's impossible to sustain the gaming industry as it is now I mean a game costs millions to make and sells at 40 quid and if it fails it gets cleared out I don't know how a small developers can afford to fail to be honest.
I know for a fact the success of the Iphone and mobile devices in general means that the silent majority do not care as much about the stuff the so called gaming industry does and Nintendo has proven it by their sales figures time and time again.
While personally I love the wii and I feel its still going strong with a fantastic line up for Christmas all of a sudden with Microsoft Kinnect and Sony Move
The gaming industry are spelling doom for Nintendo ah they chat so much blah.
