A hundred years ago, you could have said the same thing about horses. Industry created more, and safer jobs for horses. Horses that were no longer needed in a cavalry charge could be redeployed to pull a canal barge or an omnibus. Until the internal combustion engine came along and no-one needed horses anymore.

Yeah there are no interesting platformers and sidescrollers like Super Mario 3D World, Shovel Knight, Super Meat Boy, no interesting RPGs like Dark Souls or Skyrim, and if you think there are no innovative gameplay mechanics then you must have stopped playing games years ago. I could name a hundred innovative games released in the last five years alone.

Sick of these old farts 'oh it were better in my day'. Yeah better when you had an Atari with 4000 space games that consisted of pressing a button to shoot a pixel at aliens.
