Yes, I’m looking at you BioWare, Bethesda, treyarch.
We know about the disasters of anthem, and more importantly, Fallout 76. I never cared much for anthem anyway. I knew it was going to be trash and didn’t buy into it. But Fallout 76 really had me f***** up. they really got me good with that one. But the funny part is that gaming magazines say we are very unlikely to see another fall off for a very long time due to the poor reception of Fallout 76. Which is funny, because it’s not a problem that we caused. They did a poor job, delivered an absolute crap product, and you know who is punished for it? The players. They could just go with common sense, and market research, and deliver a product players actually want to play and would pay top dollar for. But nope. they deliver us the absolute crappiest product ever, and then act like it’s our fault and now we won’t get what we deserve for several years. Kind of funny isn’t it?
Black ops 4 is also a similar disaster. They delivered a product that we thought was going to be the absolute best. They reworked everything. the zombies, the entire gameplay, and it felt so good. They even gave us blackout, a battle royale. For the first time in years, there was a good Call of Duty. And then they took that and plummeted it straight into the ground and turned it into a disaster by locking things behind loot boxes, and even if you pay for the season pass and all DLC, you still don’t get the guns you paid for. nope. You have to unlock them in loot boxes. So you have to pay to be able to roll loot boxes to be able to unlock. But again there going to punish the players now for that. All we get is crappy modern warfare yet again.
can’t even get me started on Battlefield. The last few have been absolute garbage. Battlefield 1 I guess was a good game delivered, but due to lack luster season pass sales, they rolled out very few DLC and they weren’t even that amazing or different than each other.
It’s kind of sucky because the players always get punished when gaming companies fail to do their job
