    F*ck all unless you're a brainless idiot who purchases loot boxes and microtransactions, how did we get here?

    Some blame phone games - they have a point, you buy a £50 game get spend over £200 on microtransactions just to afford a vehicle. GG

    anyhow, discuss your thoughts on an end of an era.

    okay soooo as of now only a few games don't make you pay for stuff in their game even though you already paid for the game assuring you'd have the full experience, in a non-cosmetic sense...
    today games like the new CoDs (mainly Black Ops III and Infinite Warfare) and GTA V
    border-line suck your wallet dry of money, it's gotten to the point where if you're going to decide to get into a game you'd have to think about how much money you'd spend or how much you'll invest into that game After already paying to play it
    i
    t's like "i can't play that game i'm already putting enough money into this one"
    companies are sticking you to their game if you decide to get in it with your wallet, sounds like a hideous competitive tactic between game companies xddd
    do note that there are exceptions to this, Paladins, Fortnite, Rust, Forza etc
    are all great games that dont force you to spend your money to have a great time

    Paladins is just OverFlop, Fortnite is just Player Unknown's Bore fest which is just Arma 2 Battle Royal, Forza is P2W not even on PC.

    Littraly all AAA games are crappy microtransaction BS

    My thoughts? Heh.
    As someone who RARELY shows interest in AAA titles, gaming news/issues related to the genre just makes me sad. The amount of greed in AAA companies is just over-the-top. Milking the **** out of gamers' wallets is what most AAA games do nowadays.
    The language the AAA companies talk is $$$ and I am not willing to speak it.
    A few examples of recent news in the gaming industry which worried me is regarding Take-Two Interactive and Activision.
    The success of GTAO's microtransactions really got T2 to practice more sinister ways in drying our wet wallets, probably even in single-player environments whereas regarding Activision, it's the patented microtransaction techniques which are just total manipulation.
    Like I said, I am extremely worried about the future of the gaming industry as a whole, as a gamer who doesn't want to spend a big fortune on my gaming experience.

    after reading your post and looking at your signature i thought those buildings were stacks of money
    overflop and PUBG's bore which is basically arma 2 battle royal are pretty damn fun if you ask me
    Don't know much about Forza but last time i checked Forza Horizon 3 wasn't p2w

    Like most new games aren't worth it anymore - majority of them being p2w, badly optimised for just dull. only thing I'm looking foward too is Escape From Takrov

    Well look on the bright side; if many more quality games come out, you might be really conflicted on which game to get with a limited budget.

    The constant wave of bad games from what you say make it easier to choose right?

    How about... Don't focus on mobile games, mkay? There isn't a lot of best games coming from mobile. Only best games comes out from the PC or consoles.
