This is a good example where actually reading thr source would show that OP didnt know what he was talking about.
Layden never says they now want to make fewer games but rather says so as a general statement. Which is true in comparison to years before.
He also doesnt say BR is a fad. Just that he doesnt see the need for So mny to enter that genre when what they are doing now is working so well for them (single player narrative games)
Ok good to hear. All of these are much more reasonable statements which I actually agree with 100%. Especially the single player narrative which I enjoy a lot.
