except that's not really true because... your nephew isn't a representative of all of Gen Z????
I mean if GaaS is so in demand for us you'd think all the cancellations & shutdowns that happened recently wouldn't be a thing... right???
- Calm down with the question marks.
- We're generalizing here. This is all anecdotal. And anecdotally I find that Gen Z does indeed have shit taste in games and I'm very far from being alone in this opinion. There are of course always exceptions and I shouldn't need to tell you that.
- I never mentioned GaaS
- Not "nephew", but 3 nephews, 3 nieces, 2 of my co-worker's children (they talk about what they're playing), and a smattering of other Gen Z to Gen Alpha kids that I've randomly met.
This is super old man shouting at cloud, but here goes. When I was their age, I was playing Metal Gear Solid, Zelda, Mega Man, Super Mario World, Half-Life, Counter-Strike, etc. Literally EVERY kid I've met that plays games that's under 20 (and probably older) plays only
Fortnite, Minecraft, and iPad games (and not the good ones.) Literally every single one of them ranging from 6 years old to 22 or so. Those games by themselves are completely fine, but it's as if they have no idea about any other game or care to know (despite my best efforts, but I quickly gave up).
I personally find it very strange that they can be so enamored by these
games, and have zero interest in branching out.
