I’ve written previously about how gamers are the vanguard among consumers and generally the earliest adopters of new products, services, and technologies, So, too, I believe, are game companies often at the forefront of novel ways of doing business. Wiser people than myself seem to agree. Ben Thompson from Stratechery argues that that media businesses are often the first to adapt to new paradigms because of their relative simplicity. I’d go even further and say that game companies are the first among their entertainment peers.
