This just bothers me, change isn’t the problem here. It’s a system that allows bloated and greedy publishers to strong arm the customer. Forcing them to pay top dollar and then demanding that they pay more for gated content. Sometimes the content may not even be good content to begin with, but hay what’s another ten dollars? DLC and patches should be used to enhance an already reliable and COMPLETED product, not used to bleed your customers.
Gamers don’t hate you because it’s “cool” we hate you because you abuse our loyalty and technology for coin. Forcing us to remain online at all times, shoehorning features into a game so you can “Broaden Opeell” rather than maximize the game to it’s full potential. The resources you waste on a out of place multi-player or day one DLC, could be better used to enhance the story. Or tighten down the controls so the gameplay is smoother. You could look at what you create as a work of art, but instead you see it as a money machine. slowly but surely you are destroying the things which gamers love, rotting it from within. This, is why we hate you…
Facebook user Francisco Michels in regards to EA’s Peter Moore going on about how gamers dislike change.
I added my own thoughts to the page as well, which I’ll post below.
I don’t play online multiplayer because I gamed over 20 years without it, and multiplayer in general even longer. The multiplayer experience is completely different from being immersed in a living, breathing world where the characters aren’t going “lol” or “fag” every couple of seconds. I don’t have to worry about my allies suddenly disconnecting or being noobs. There’s no “experience gap” when I’m playing games on my own. Why the hell do I want to get connected and join a community I can barely stand, when it’s a whole lot more enjoyable to get lost in a “page turner” of a plot with enjoyable gameplay? Hell, sometimes the gameplay is all you need which is certainly the case with much older games like Mega Man X or Mario 64. Don’t try to convince me that online is the “where the fun’s at” cause I’d call that bullshit.
