More good games out there than ever before, including more games in a retro style, mods and overhauls of classics, etc.
The number of indie projects taking "forever" to get anywhere is so large that you still end up with lots of releases to look forward to - unless you have crazy specific tastes.
I really don't see the issue.
In times past, you HAD to get excited and look forward to the handful of good games that would release in year, there really was nothing else to do.
But now? I could win in a lottery, never work again, prolong my life with dark magic and there still would not be enough time to play everything I have an interest in.
If you are miserable about the state of gaming at this time, you really just WANT to be miserable. Which is 90% of the Codex, I know
