Video Game Quality is becoming shit
« on: May 09, 2017, 01:29:33 AM »
It's sad really.
These days, people allow for video games to come out as unfinished, unpolished, and sometimes even Beta Build games that requires massive patches and even more money just to fix.

A half finished product comes out at full price and we got all these pathetic gamers defending this crap.

I mean. games will always have bugs, some less than others.  But atleast in the past, we got a full quality games.

I can get by future DLC as pseudo-expansions. released a year or two later.  These I don't mind.  They expand the game and sometimes are worth it.
Pre-orders Usually dont' care, cosmetics and all.

But day 1 DLC? wtf is that nonsense.  The game isn't even out yet and they already announced DLC.
Practically gutting a game just to charge you more.

And the consumers eat that shit up.

I've stopped buying new video games because of that.  I've switched to buying used games.

Getting to the point where if you wait half a year, the game is probably half the price with more content.  (besides nintendo games, those never change).

Recently picked up FFXV for $29.99. Day One Edition from BB. So yes, wait on new games. In fact I think my entire library of video games were purchases made months after initial releases.

I had to inquire if the price was correct considering it is still selling for about $59.99 everywhere else, including BB now. I was fortunate enough to grab it while it was on sale.

We can visit again this holiday to see if the price has dropped.  Usually by atleast a year, things start dropping or we start seeing the "Special filled with bullshit Edition" come out.
- Partially why I never care to buy anything from NRS.  Unless you play it for online features. Just wait a year or so.  All the DLC will be free with the "Komplete Edition" at half the cost of you buying everything.

Capcom is slightly getting smarter with their marketting.

"You can get every character for free! just buy them with in game currency!"
or.
"Spend real money and get them now!."

I'm not surprised if more and more start doing this.  NRS did this I think (not to mention "easy fatalities" what a joke).  Some other FPS companies did it. 

I just hope and pray we do not get a paywall like mobile games does.  We get that, then it'll be practically the end of gaming.
