While doing some research for an upcoming article on game monetization, I went deep into the archives of Gamasutra. I did a search for ‘industry prediction’ then selected some of the articles that I felt gave a good snapshot of where the industry was at the time.

It was fun going back in time and seeing the ups, downs and cycles of the game industry!

The social game transition of the late 2000’s was an uncomfortable time for most devs!

Check out the live chart on Tableau here, and a google doc with links to the articles here.
