Not a “Good Game, Good Game”

I would have thought that most households that play computer games would also be “connected” households. Most games will also have demos or videos of the game that can be downloaded. A computer game is not something you need to go and touch, smell or try on before deciding if you want to buy it. As a result it is hardly surprising that high-street game shops are disappearing. PC games don’t even need you to buy anything physical. All you need can be downloaded once you have paid your fee.

Not what I would call a good game

The only way they could survive is if there was something that was there that needed your presence; something that you had to go and watch, or take part in, that would then make you want to buy something.
