How did we get to this point?

'I don't find a problem with this sort of thing if it's not essential'

At every stage in the devolution of gaming, regardless of how people initially complain, because they feel they have no real power over the outcome, they eventually accept it, seemingly unaware that it's just one step in an ever increasing devolution.

People will never learn.

My thoughts exactly, i don't personally hate Konami and i wasn't going to buy this game either way, but if people start accepting bullshit like this, the gaming industry will continue getting worse... This generation is the worst in all of gaming history so far. It would be nice if next generation is better, but at this rate it might be even worse.

Well, you should, they literally go out of their way to keep ex-employees from getting new jobs and getting health insurance. Current employees aren't spared, either: they slave labor their devs, demote them to cleaning toilets and whatnot. That's some next level despicable shit right there. Hell, I'm pretty sure this is a violation of human rights laws.

But yeah, I already see fanboys on the MGS steam page and Metal Gear Solid reddit trying to defend this shit. Moreover, I see posts from people saying they hate Destiny 2 yet they'll buy the second and third expansions when they drop. This is why EA, Bunglevision and Konami keep pushing their bullshit on us: because gullible fanboys keep eating it up and taking it in the ass.

Ok, now i do hate them lol, they are even worse than EA... Never thought i'd say that about a game company. Activision is another shitty company... I seriously hate where the gaming industry is going...

At least there are some companies i still like including Nintendo and Bethesda.

I agree with you, don't get me wrong, but this particular case is nothing new and the only reason it was brought up, is simply bceause people like to hate on Konami. So it gets a bit boring.

People like to hate on Konami? This is paying for save files for goodness sake. Got another example of something lower than this? Do you see what you did there though? You more or less said complaining about companies that do this is 'boring'. ANOTHER reason this is getting worse.

You're forcing yourself into the economics of these games ,,, and I can't do much about your habits either but I'm sure not much people are going to take your example.
