Let's be honest, the gaming industry isn't perfect.

There have been several problems in the past. and problems still happen today, from companies relying on shady business practices, to trying to make us pay money in any way possible via DLC and micro-transactions, and companies flat out giving up, and not even trying to please their dedicated fanbase anymore, and not listening to said fans.

We all have our limits, and some people probably have already given up on gaming as a result, but for those whol still game a lot, what would make you lose interest in this hobby, and never come back.

I personally don't see myself leaving anytime soon. If we get to the day where all games are digital only, with physcial releases on consoles being an after thought, I will probably lose a lot of interest in this hobby, to the point where overtime, I stop caring.

What about you? Is there anything that will make you lose your patience, or do you think you will be here to stay?

No more games to play.



Well, this is new.

Read.

The only games makers in the whole industry was MS and there was Halo/Gears/Forza for the rest of all time.

On a serious note there'd have to be no games, or no games worth playing, at all. And even then I'd still play old games that I had. Unless it was outlawed.. Okay yeah let's say quitting gaming isn't gonna happen for me



Hmm...probably if the industry started moving towards a subscription model, I'd be less inclined to keep up this hobby. I'm sure it'd work for some people, but I'm more the kind of person that enjoys squeezing his games dry for months on end, or coming back to his games years down the line, rather than jumping from game to game. I also prefer to own my games. Digitally or physically doesn't really matter to me, just as long as I'm not dependent on a company's servers or my internet connection to play the games I like. Simply renting games doesn't really work for me.

Like I said, I'm sure it'd work for some people, but I really don't anticipate a subscription model being worthwhile for me.

No matter how crappy the majority of the industry gets, there will always be indie guys making stuff that's cool. The only thing that would make me stop playing games is the downfall of our technical civilization as we know it, or some sort of totalitarian ruler of the world that outlaws games.

I guess if one day I woke up and realized I hadn't achieved anything with my life because I had been prioritizing video games, I'd like to think I would kick it.



Muda Muda Muda Muda Muda Muda!!!!


Only if death took me. If all publishers stopped making games right now, I'd just replay all my old ones. I never sold any of my old systems :)

Well, you know for a lot of people some of what you are saying is not a bad thing. DLC and micro-transactions for instance.

I mean for DLC I can understand when they are already on the disk that it is a bit... so so... but then the rest is just okay. DLC after the release of the game is good and a lot of people are just crying because they "judge" that the game should come out with that content already like they have a clue about how much time it would take to make it or how "complete" a game should be when it comes out. I'm not saying everybody's perfect and some games/companies are abusing it but it is certainly a minority.

For micro-transactions, it is the same. It is the choice of players to buy them or not in the majority of the case. Nothing is wrong with that and again only a very few minority of games are making it unfair or unplayable without it.

Those are really not reason for me to quit gaming.

Jessica Alba naked in my bed room would be a good reason tho...



The day when there are no longer good stories and single player campaigns with every game being generic with bland characters or multiplayer only.

Yeah, I was mainly trying to mention things that I know that some gamers get fed up with. There's nothing wrong with DLC overall, but I know some people aren't a big fan of it (I know a lot of people who aren't a fan of Smash DLC whatsoever), and yeah, on-disc DLC is B.S.

Maybe not full fledged reasons to quit, but they can be annoying little things that build up overtime, IMO.
