Sometimes, a developer or publisher says something, and all you can do is shake your head and go, “…What?” Other times, they pull some business move that leaves us all scratching our heads. These five publishers have become masters of both lately. They’ve alienated customers all while wondering why their revenue streams slow down.

Each of these could probably be longer articles on their own, but I tried to keep each of these brief, as the collective situation says something about the state of the industry. Of course it should be noted that all of the opinions and harsh criticisms and all that are my own and not the website’s. Cheers.

Pictured at the top of this article is Skies of Arcadia, a beloved RPG that you should track down if you’ve got a Dreamcast or GameCube. That’s from an era when Sega was keeping it real as fuck.
