Many video games are based on similar engines and formulas.

They know what works and they follow that plan, new games come along because the engine is proven and they re-use it to save money.

The formula stays the same with little to no improvement, costs decrease, and the need to do “well” drops because development time was saved and we can do “meh”.

Or you can stay in a hole for a while, or you can build something new, something that changes the landscape and is spoken about in reverence for many, many years (I’m looking at you Halo, Halo 2, Halo 3).

You can’t be both – pick the engine that will drive you.
