    To be fair, looking at the games of the 1980s and how shaky the market was (two crashes within a decade of eachother), I'd have thought that if I lived back then too. The mega lucrative multi-billion dollar industry that has pretty much replaced cinema as the best entertainment method it's morphed into is a far cry from that.

    Agreed.
    What do you think about virtual reality? It's certainly a lot more successful now than it ever has been, but I still don't expect it to stay. Although I might just be denying it, like I'm still denying smartphones being/becoming the default, or even *shudder* the only option.

    Virtual reality will stay and get better and better. I don't know for gaming, but there's more mature industries that will placate people's more animalistic desires, Google Earth, healthcare, the military, etc.

    Watched it on the evening of the 31st of December. Their expectations were quite interesting indeed!

    Smartphones are the default now yeah, and probably will stay so for quite a while. I do think that "dumb phones" (that's one of their names, the only one I can remember right now) will stay in existence for quite a while - there are still many, especially older people, who use them.
