Your world seems to be black and white.
So don't buy overprized stuff when you don't see the value in it. I don't either.
Please stop these assumptions! I don't want to shut down your end of the conversation, I don't want you to agree with me, I don't want to shut you out of the conversation, I don't want you to go away.
Jeez! Can't you really not accept other opinions?
1. Not really, I just see what makes sense. Your OG post on MMO's doing it naturally led from one to another over time, why not with GTA V doing it for all other action based, non MMO games?.
2. I don't, but me, just one person not buying it still doesn't stop games from being over monetised and more content being stripped and sold for cash.
3. It's really not, this is the core impression you've been giving me over the years, nearly all our interactions on here have led to me saying something and you dismissively shutting me down or basically twisting my arm to either get to agree with you, feel like a total idiot, or bow out. I cannot remember a time where I've said something and you've either agreed or added onto it.
There were times when me and Don didn't see eye to eye, but in recent years there have been times where we've agree on something or added to it, but with you and me it doesn't feel like that at all.
I'm all for other opinions, but I'm not up for dismissive posts time and time and time again. I love the data you put out for Steam database, for the Deck benchmarks, but what I don't like is when we actually get to talking, it's you either making me out to being a total retard or the equivalent of "go away, you're bad". if you don't want that impression, then is it possible to see why I get so jaded when business models like these arise?.
I don't want all games to be sliced up into pieces and sold at extra cost, I don't want games being turned into live services, I don't want to see base games costing upwards of £70+, and I don't buy them, but they keep happening and I see that as not a positive trend, because I'm either faced with limited options or throwing my hands up and paying out the arse (which I'm guessing you're fine or don't care for either way?).
