Video games are dead *rant*

Recommended Posts

So now we have arrived to the point where games that cost $60 have fuging microtransactions and loot crates in them.. the free to play model has now infected AAA games now.. latest example is shadow of war mordor game where you have to grind like crazy to get the true ending and if you don't want to you can just pay like $5 instead... fuging cancer.

That's disappointing.. I loved the first lord of the rings game

Yeah it really is.. I am waiting until it's on sale for $20 because they don't deserve anymore than that from me.

that's truly disappointing to hear about Shadow of Mordor. would you mind expanding on the $5 end game a bit more?

Ok here is some info from game reviewers..

 

GAMESPOT:
In the game's actual final act, you cycle through the four fortresses you explored previously for a total of 20 more defending siege battles. If you haven't upgraded the Orcs you met early in the game--and up until this point, there was no reason to--you have to replace and upgrade your entire retinue of Orcs to match this more powerful invading force. The enemies you face level up with each encounter, so you're also forced into upgrading each castle over and over again, either by building up your current Orc army or finding new fighters and replacing the old. This Sisyphean quest has no corresponding significant characters to keep you company or explain why it's important to tackle the defense missions in the order you do. It's not even clear, exactly, why you want to do them at all.

More than once I felt like giving up on this quest thinking I'd stumbled onto some optional side content that was clearly only made for obsessed completionists. But enduring on, I found that finishing every stage unlocks the final cutscene and credits. It did not feel worth it.

POLYGON:
When you run out of in-game money, you have two choices: Make a huge time investment by hunting down orcs in your game world and earning chests via vendetta missions, or spend some real money to get the more powerful orcs you need now. Does the game ever force you to spend money? No. I’m sure you can get to the end of Shadow Wars without spending a dime, as long as you’re patient and persistent. But locking progress through this mode (and, again, toward the game’s true ending) behind either spending more money or doing tons of tedious busywork feels at least greedy if not predatory.

yikes that sounds awful

 

Yup another game I used to really enjoy playing has gone down this horrible road.. nba 2k18 has turned into a fulltime job trying to earn credits to pay for everything.. the games industry is rapidly killing itself in the name of greed.

For years they have been complaining about how games should be more than $60.   I guess they may have a point considering SNES games were $50 if I remember.     Though even if they were $80 they would still milk it.

I haven’t encountered this but it sounds sh*tty.  I don’t have much time to play I haven’t played Madden or NBA in years the last things I played were the Witcher wild hunt and Uncharted (I just DL the new content for that).

The Witcher DLC was a good amount of content for the price, IMO

The witcher devs are awesome.. unfortunately they are a rapidly dying breed in the industry. I really enjoyed witcher 3 and gwent.
