Friday, April 8, 2022, I'm at my desk doing homework. I run my Virtualbox machine and can't figure out why it keeps giving me errors and shutting down, so I go to the UAT Cyber Studies Discord for troubleshooting help.

What Happened to the Modern Day Game Industry?

Posted on Dec 7, 2021 2:01:53 PM by Emilio Cress in game review, in gaming is my passion, in video game industry

Battlefield 2042, Call of Duty: Vanguard, Far Cry 6, Cyberpunk 2077, Watch_Dog: Legion, Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy Remastered, and plenty more unnamed titles. What do all of these titles have in common? Each and every one of these is a slap in the face to consumers everywhere.
