The "it'll never sell/run on Switch" comments are telling, which aren't even remotely needed in a thread with MHW at all, so when they are issued, then it becomes a jab. We already know full well that Switch is getting it's own MH game.
"it's fair" when it suits you.
I don't think any company out there cares about anything other than more money tbh, that;'s how they operate when they become that big, that's how they will continue to act and think until they die off.
I don't really need to double dip, but I would for an indie game to support the smaller dev, rather than the larger one that doesn't need it. FOr me I won't be with RDR 2, I'll be waiting for it to reach bargain bin prices, because I do not reward those who treat the market I game on as second class let alone expecting the time spent waiting for it to be paid in full.
It doesn't suit me. I'm not taking jabs at anybody. Its just that I am fully aware of a huge amount of Nintendo fans who did it.
Indie games are usually crap in my opinion. Most of them wouldn't fly in the face of consumers had they been 4 times as long at $60 because the quality isn't the same as AAA games in terms of presentation, graphics, story and most often gameplay. There are some like Furi that are amazing, but even then they can't reach AAA top dogs like Rockstar.
I care of the product I get, I don't give away money for pity just because they are a small dev. Rockstar's games are such that I feel they should be rewarded for their efforts when nobody else makes those type of games. No indie game is worth a quarter of a Rockstar game. Some sell for more. Its freeing when you're platform agnostic, I'd feel you if I was PC and Switch only gamer, and probably have the same bias as you do. Get a PS4, get an Xbox, get something and free yourself from loyalty towards a platform.
