Cage also provided a handy checklist the industry can grow up:
1: Make games for all audiences.
2: Change our paradigms.

Cage went to to compare buying games to voting with your money.
“I often think that buying or not buying a game is almost like a political vote,” Cage said during his talk. “You decide if you want the industry to go in this direction or not go in this direction.
“Buy crap, and you’ll get more crap. Buy exciting, risky games, and you will get more of them. When you buy games, you vote for where you want the industry to go.”
