"While Epic's Mark Rein thinks that episodic gaming is a broken model, our very own Mark Friedler, GameDaily's CEO and Publisher, thinks the entire gaming business is broken. This is part 2 of a 3-part series on the future of video games, what's not working and what the future may hold. Next week he'll offer solutions on what should happen next.

We all know this a year of change in the video game market place. The future of the industry is very much at a crossroads with the big 3 bringing out their new platforms and many questions remain unanswered. Maybe it's time to say "the Emperor Has No Clothes."

Here are my observations on the problems with the current model."
