Digital Trends has a good article detailing the hopes and dreams of the videogame-o-sphere, 2010.
According to our favorite analyst (dripping sarcasm), Michael Pachter, it's the year of the hard core game, SUNDAY, SUNDAY, SUNDAY...BOOYA!
Although there are a number of AAA titles which will debut in 2010, the video game world has changed. Of course "God of War 3" and "Gears of War 3" are going to sell well, but they won't be ground breaking...for God sakes, they have "3" after their names (that's not to say that I'm not going to play the crap out of them).
What I'm saying is that Nintendo will continue to dominate the charts, just as they did in 2009 with silly fun games that everybody can enjoy.
I just get sick of hearing things like, "It's the year of the hard core gamer," when, actually every year is the year of the hard core gamer and then the casual games always outsell them. Ugh.
