In a series of tweets, Twitter user Chris Dyer has explained why he’s no longer playing video games, in part due to the increased scrutiny they have received from the gaming industry.
“I started out with a gaming console and my first PC was the PS2.
While the Xbox 360 is arguably the best-selling video game console of all time, Dyer also pointed to a number of other consoles that have suffered in the years since.””
I went to work, got a new job, and had to buy another console.”
While the Xbox 360 is arguably the best-selling video game console of all time, Dyer also pointed to a number of other consoles that have suffered in the years since.
“The PS2 is the only one that didn’t really catch on as a gaming platform.
It wasn’t until the Wii U, which is now, it’s just not a viable platform for gaming anymore,” Dyers wrote.
“It was so hard to get people to buy a PS4 back in 2004.”
Dyer also said that the PC gaming community has also been hit hard.
“In 2008, I started a game company, and I’ve sold about 30% of the games I’ve made since,” he wrote.
Dyer’s comments come on the heels of a slew of tweets from industry professionals who have called for gaming to be more diverse, more inclusive, and more inclusive of women.
One such tweet was published on the gaming website Gamasutra earlier this week.
