“It must be difficult for game developers; challenged every few years with inventing new, exciting reasons for us to go out and spend our hard-earned cash on their product. But somehow they achieve it. We get hyped for the latest game in our favourite long-running franchise, we go out and get it, we play it to death – and then we ask for more.
