The game industry has been through some hard times as of late, sales have literally dropped 50% in the last two years [1], some of the lowest figures since the 80's and 90's, newly released AAA titles are getting little to no care from their developers to make quick bucks [2], and big names companies are using dirty tricks and tactics in order to increase their sales [3][4], it is quite obvious consumers, like in the 70's are no longer trusting companies, most saving their money for only select titles or moving to the internet for free indie games.

This begs the question? Does the industry need another crash to repair it of its issues and mistakes? I say yes, the one who accepts this debate will say the industry does not need a crash and give support to why it doesnt need a crash/and or why its fine on its own.

Rounds will goes as:
Round 1. Opening Statements/Acceptance
Round 2. Arguments
Round 3. Counter/Arguments
Round 4. Arguments/Counter/Closing Statements
This format is optional and the debate can go however is necessary for the two of us.
I await an opponent.

yo spoonman, due to some issues on my end, I will not be able to debate in this argument, basically I have no internet at home and participate in arguments via school, but our school has protection systems blocking out anything game related online, preventing me from getting proper research, hopefully I can do this debate in a later timer elsewhere.
