How many notable feature films can you think of that came out last year? Really good, solid movies?
Take a moment. Count. Maybe make a list.
How about really good TV shows, or computer games? Again, make a quick list.
I'll explain why we're doing all this list-making in a minute.
I've been considering the state of storytelling media in 2015 for a little while now, and one thing keeps cropping up in my personal media consumption: I'm consuming more media that wasn't released in the last year than ever before.
Indeed, my default reaction to something interesting arriving has become "I'll get around to it in a year or so".
So I started digging to find out why.
