Maybe it’s just me but it really seems like most blog articles I see these days are all covering the same topics over and over. I don’t mean to say they’re all writing about the same thing at once but instead rehashing age old arguments and discussions to try and put a new spin on it. Depending on the author it can work for some but most of the time I start reading them and just click away.
Now, I’m referring to gaming blogs, blogs that focus on the game itself, be it strategy, tactics, etc. I don’t mean my personal observation to be insulting, I think it’s just the nature of the beast. We’ve now been playing 5th for just over three years and though we’ve had a lot of new codices since the introduction of 5th, which invariably causes a lot of new discussions about approaches to the game, the core of the game has remained the same. You can really only talk about something that’s largely static so much before you start repeating yourself.
I have no answers and I suppose I’m really just complaining. There’s still some great sites out there offering up interesting and unique content but by and large I feel things have just become stagnant on the gaming front. I’m certainly not up on a soap box here either. I’ve had a hard time coming up with articles lately so I certainly understand.
I was hoping to have more to offer in this article but I’ve got nothing, ironic I suppose. If nothing else it should put the current poll into perspective, which you can vote in here:
