Forums - Gaming Discussion - Blind loyalty is unhealthy!

That's it, that's the thread title.

Side note: delayed posting here did show me how VGChartz impacts my videos.  I'm not specifically going to lay that out because it would make it seem like posting here is bad for me, but I actually like having some of these discussions with y'all

Indeed.

Companies carry about money and you should care about yourself.

Applaud what is good for you and be against what is not.

There is no perfect company and making sure they know they can't pull all they want is fundamental.

One person writing a random post in the internet is nothing but a couple million are, people got a hollywood movie to get delayed to be changed because they didn't like what the company were doing with the main character, afterall.



Always be critical of a company, no matter how much you like their products.

For instance, I love pretty much all the games from Paradox Interactive, but I absolutely loathe their excessive monetisation scheme of cranking out endless streams of DLC that you pretty much need to make a game really complete and fix errors. As a result I will never buy any game from them at full price, and even tend to wait for them to show up a humble bundle.



I love Nintendo, but for those who've missed it the past few days, I'm not above criticizing their more bullshit decisions as of late.



Brand loyalty is stupidity that's on period

I agree with that.

In my late teens, I had blind loyalty to SEGA and the only thing I got from that was a lot of fights at the internet. I had my lesson, so today I just admire good games, no matter where them come from.

I think most folks are okay with this principle. The problem happens when people bash a company for doing something that is not wrong.

For example, when Nintendo announced the OLED model, they priced it properly because people will most likely buy it at that price. If they couldn't, Nintendo wouldn't price it so. The reason they can is because it offers value, and people are okay to freely consent to pay for that value.

The point is that some folks take a habit of bashing certain companies even if they did nothing wrong because somehow they have a bias against them. That's not too healthy either. I'm not saying we should accept everything blindly, but sometimes it makes sense to defend a company's decision if we feel like they really don't deserve the flack.

What do you think?

I think they can price their stuff however they want and I decide wether I consider it worth that price. Simple as that.

This video is not about that.
Its about doing something about it, ei. voteing with your wallet.

Did you skip any games, or go try something on other systems when you were let down?


I rarely do day1.
Waiting for a good offer, instead.

I think like alot of playstation users, arnt afriad to skip a exclusive, or wait for a price drop, if it doesnt "feel" like something must have.

whatboutism
(what about this other thing, about bashing others, for blind loyality. And blind loyality is fine, because if company X can get away with it, it proves it was okay).

And nothing to do with this thread, if you watched the video.
Even if it states its about "blind loyalty is unhealthy" if you watched the video, you would hear its about doing something about it.
The voteing with your wallet, and going other places or skipping things, if you dont agree with price, or quality.
