The obsession for big-budget games filled with the same themes - crime, gore, shooting, war - is really really bad for the industry.
There´s a good part of consumers who really want new experiences, new ideas and flexibility.
Those type of games are not aimed to all videogame audience and that audience alone (the dumbly called "hardcore gamer") can´t sustain the industry. There´s no room for so many expensive productions. Square published games are a great example.
