Very, it seems like there's always another great game coming soon.

Not at all, the game industry is dying and there's no stopping it.
Everything will be fire.

Not very. It's just that games don't offer me new experiences anywhere near as often anymore, so they've become less interesting to me. Always love a good story though, and unfortunately too few games have that now. That's what a backlog is for!

Very I mean there are always games coming out that I'm interested in, almost too many, I can't keep up.
If you wanted to watch me play games for some reason:

Somewhat.

I think there will always be something releasing that interests me, but it will remain to be few and far between. It's also not all bad though cause I'll still have the option to spend more time on games I otherwise wouldn't spend as much time on, even if that scenario is not perfect. There's also my backlog, though optimally I don't really like over relying on it, just playing a few games here and there from it.

Not at all, while I don't think it's dying there are a lot of trends that are ruining it.
Because of the qualifier I voted for "Not Very".

Very optimistic, games are better all the time. I built my first apparatus to move dots of light around an oscilloscope screen in 1961, so I've been involved in electronic gaming for 58 years. Always something new and exciting.

Today’s poll is especially bad because again, they make the choices way to specific. It’s not about the games, it’s about the direction they’re heading. We were told online-only would be cancelled but I’ve tried to play games in internet-free zones and many do not act as they should. Whether it be loading issues or no access to certain features that should be available offline. It shows you what information is kept on their servers versus your console, and it’s frightening because once those servers go down, you lose all your unlocks. The games are fine, the direction gaming is headed with the introduction of the internet is not good.
I'm right, as expected.
