Conclusion and suggestion

Connect 4 is a classic game, which is reflected in the same topic. And according to its sentiment, it is only becoming better with time. However, the opinion on the quality of the games is decreasing. Perhaps the market’s expectations are rising? This is a thing that should be focused on. Otherwise, it is just a question of time before grades start dropping.
