usually we get the "PC games are dead" mantra.
now we are back to PC games saving the day???
Far as game quality goes, it's a bit unfair to expect most new games to be brilliant. I can certainly cite a number of game franchises for having overstayed their welcome.
But every so often a new game comes out that does push the envelope. Not really different from movies, where most of the crop consists of duds. And, like movies, if you wait 6 months or so, you'll get it for much cheaper.
The difference is that many good games have good replay value.
It's also a bit unfair to criticize game AI overmuch, it's not like the non-game AI field is doing that great. With the exception of IBM Deep XYZ and cloud-based machine learning.
Back to finishing Dark Souls 2 and when that's done I'll spin up my Shogun 2 again.
