I can't believe how we've all become so apathic and accustomed to this indstry's sleazy practices that no one deigned themselves to write something about Activisions newest escapedes concerning tuning or even rigging multiplayer games to encourage spending money on microtransactions.

That doesn't suririse me in the slightest either. Activision is right up there on the sleazy list. It's sad, but it's gotten to the point where gaming is just like anything else in modern life where I just don't trust anyone to be doing the right thing.

I mean, as soon as I saw Naomi with the brown hair looking exactly like Jessica Chobot, I was already down to make babies with her. But then she goes and says the exact thing I was thinking to myself at about one minute into the video about the cheeseballs at EA....and now my load is uncontainable.

Oh how disappointed I was when I did a quick search for Jessica Chobot and saw that it was actually SFW.

Ok so EA closing down visceral and their mother fucking piece of shit PR statement that basically states single player games are terrible and must never be our focus again, can we talk about this crap.

This is my fear, linear single player AAA games dying out cause "people don't want them". They need games that players stay playing for months, with loot boxes and shit that exploit some them! Great here comes a star wars destiny clone instead of Star Wars uncharted which I wanted.  Nintendo and Sony are our last hope for linear single player games and even they are making almost everything open world. Sad

Open world games are still singler player though. Right?

There was a GAF thread recentely about Bethesda. Apparently Prey, Dishonoured 2 and some other new game they launched all bombed. And they were all single player focused.

Here: Does Visceral's closure prove AAA single-player games are dying?

"Think pieces proliferated about the grim future for AAA single-player experiences. They had a lot of other evidence to point to--recent releases like Resident Evil 7, Prey, Dishonored 2, and Deus Ex: Revolution, which were critically acclaimed but which underperformed saleswise, had many speculating that the increasing cost of high end game development may mean that the only viable way to be profitable is to adopt the live, constantly updated, game-as-a-service model of titles like Overwatch and Destiny 2 and Star Wars Battlefront 2."

Anyone noticed the male staff at IGN look like this:

While the female staff look like this:

It's like tv news. You can be and old white guy, but if you're a lady you got to be fairly good looking to get on tv.

That's kinda crazy.

Mario Odyssey, Doom, Skyrim and Xenoblade 2 all within weeks of each other. Might have to hold off on Doom or Skyrim.

It's because they're racist against anyone who isn't a nerdy looking white guy or an attractive white female. Fucking whites.

Not even shocking anymore.

Edge I agree.

Tons of articles today about the state of AAA games and how something has to give. Dev costs sky rocketing and the price of games have not changed in decade. Either we suck it up and take the microtransactions or they will make us pay more for the games. It's all going to come crashing down if there isn't a plan.

Well Prey may still be my favorite game I've played this year. It's fantastic.

If gaming turns into nothing more than online focused games like Overwatch and Destiny and Splatoon, then I won't be buying many games in the future I guess. How is that good for gaming to just have a bunch of online multiplayer focused games all with a similar play structure? If that's all anybody is going to be making everything is going to start to feel like you're playing the same thing. Boring and repetitive. And these are the kinds of games that can very easily be exploited with microtransactions which is why they're trying to go this way. I like games in this style, but I definitely don't want EVERY  game being an online deathmatch superhero thing.

It's funny because this is exactly what Cliffy B's Lawbreakers was, and that bombed hard....yet nobody is blaming the style of game or the fact that the market has too many games like this now. But if it was a single player game, that would have been hammered home instantly. "Lawbreakers flops...the death of the single player shooter" blah blah blah.

Even the open world thing...yeah they're SP focused usually, but how many games with this structure do we need? There's too many of those now as well. And again, that's an easily exploitable style for added content and microtransactions like EA was talking about with the whole idea of people going back to a game and continuing to play it and purchase content for it. Those are basically the two styles, open world and online multiplayer, companies can try to milk for a long time.

I just question how wise it is to have every game follow one of these two design choices. How long before it all starts to feel the same and people realize they're being charged literally $60 just for a base game instead of the full package in some cases. I don't think having every game feel more like a service that you have to subscribe to is going to be a big hit. I know I'm not alone in being more of a fan of traditional single player with a definite beginning and end.
