Despite the hate for early access games, many EA games are honestly driven by passion instead of $$. BeamNG.drive is a great example of a small group of people passionate about making a game changing sim.

You mean unfinished game, the game is never going to be finished.

"Those days?" If anything, crunch is less now than it used to be. Which isn't saying things are good now, but this is what game development has been for 25 years.

Games were much higher quality in the late 90's because budgets were smaller and graphics were less detailed projects were more manageable. Pc ports have been shit forever, go load up UT or UT2004 the options blow the socks off almost all modern AAA game ports.

You would think so but people don't seem to mind inviting google/apple/amazon into their homes to be recorded 24/7.

There can't be a market or accountability when companies are 100's of miles away, it's not that people don't want privacy it's that it's very hard to function in society without something like google. Internet is basically a utility.

The reality is the internet breaks the market.

The reason they became sleazy is because the market doesn't work when your customers are 100's of miles away post internet.
Now that they can take games hostage via mmo's and drm at the computers inside their offices they can just exploit from afar.Kids and gamers generally - their primate minds never evolved to make rational decisions in a high tech capitalist society
So the fix is we should all turn off the internet and move closer to a game developer...
Your record is broke , please flip it over and play side B.

It can't be fixed people are too stupid for capitalism, that's the reality. I held out for almost 10 years after steam was released but there are new kids being born around the globe and the country, you can't stop kids and their tech illiterate parents from entering their credit card and buying shit for their kids.

The way I see it, this industry needs to crash - HARD! Why? Publishers have gotten way, WAY too lazy and entirely supported on sleazy ways of getting every last cent out of the player.

=-Rigs-=

The reason they became sleazy is because the market doesn't work when your customers are 100's of miles away post internet. Pre internet they had to give us the entire game physically and there was fear if they didn't put out a good game they wouldn't make their money back.

Now that they can take games hostage via mmo's and drm at the computers inside their offices they can just exploit from afar.

The reality is the game industry stole games from us because the internet allows taking part of the game code hostage, pre internet that was impossible.

That's why all these shit practices exist. The morons who fed mmo's and steam enabled all this shit let's be honest.

Kids and gamers generally - their primate minds never evolved to make rational decisions in a high tech capitalist society.

Like an MMO? I don't understand what they mean by building this game as a service.

DRM'd game with locked content that you buy, that simple. Man gamers are such dumb creatures.

It would help if they released on GOG. Let us remember putting drm crapware into peoples games devalues them. That's why many of us wait for steam sales, no one wants to pay top dollar for a game that can be broken or taken away at the push of a button.

Most gamers are way too addicted to games to really vote with their wallets. The evidence can be seen very regularly here on this forum. They will bitch and moan and NEVER EVER buy an Actiblizz game again but come Diablo 4 or Overwatch 2 all is forgotten and that $60 preorder + $40 season pass is a go. The publishers will win this one.

Gamers are not a homogenous group. Most people are irrational and technology illiterate. Once publishers discovered people are downright idiots this was inveitable, as soon as mmo's became a thing, the rest was inevitable.

Big companies just wait for a new generation of kids to grow up with the policy and most kids are stupid beyond comprehension.

Oh come on, it is clearly GAMBLING. Giving voice to their lame excuse just makes you as bad as them. It has been and always will be gambling.

You're talking to the same set of gamers who defended steam and mmo's, gamers are a stupid bunch. These lootboxes exist because of the theft of game software. People bought server locked games because they are much too stupid and irrational to comprehend the consequences.

Assassin's Creed, along with most video games, is TV series material, not movie material. Needs a longer form to really make it work.

One of the most insightful comments I've read in a while.

I'd jest with the old "you must be fun at parties" quip, but I kinda doubt you get invited to any.

I could care less about your insult, the reality is all these things exists because the masses are morons. Anyone with any intelligence knew mmo's were scams from the get go. This all happened because of the normalisation of being fucked by game companies because the masses are too stupid and tech illiterate to participate in the videogame market. That's reality.

That league of legends and dota 2 are even pieces of game software entirely controlled by game companies held hostage on their servers is overwhelming proof the masses are idiots.

Pre high speed internet the stupid fucks couldn't fuck up PC gaming, post high speed internet penetration companies can simply force games to be server locked because we are nowhere near close enough to the business for there to be any fear of offices being stormed. That's the reality.

The market is a myth could only work if there was genuine way to hold these companies accountable so they couldn't produce games in this hostile way to begin with.

No one who paid for mmo or steam infected drm games gets the right to complain about drm effecting game preservation. If you bought Everquest, World of warcraft or played any mmo, paid for any skins in a drm'd game or any microtransaction you set the foundation for all this shit.

MMO's were the original drm'd online game with a subscription fee and the gaming masses ate it right up. To suddenly get all teary eyed about preserving game history when most people are still buying drm infested games is quite the bit of hypocrisy.

In a free to play game? I totally get it. It has to make money somehow. Loot box the shit out of that.

You guys don't seem to get it, the game industry has never kept anything seperate. Diablo 3 and Starcraft 2 went from being software you entirely controlled to online /w microtransaction ridden crap. There is no such thing as a game that a game company won't try to put microtransactions in, as soon as mmo's, horse armor and buying mounts in wow was a thing loot boxes were the inevitable next step.

Everyone who supported mmo's, steam and drm - this is the end result - games with less content sold back to you at a higher price.

Time to do Freespace 3 eh? Haven't we waited enough already?

Freespace 2 sold poorly, so FS3 is a non starter. The people who worked on Freespace / Descent are doing overload right now.

As someone who's last MMO was Guild Wars 2, I can't understand why these companies need to bring down their servers for hours at a time.

Same thing it's always been about - being cheap. If games had dedicated server software you could play the game while the patch spreads, but given that the average gamer today is a fucking moron who will buy server locked games and is largely technology illiterate, we get mmo morons - the original drm'd rpg game, fucking everything up with their culture of server locked 'online games'.

Human beings are too fucking stupid and irrational.

These games feel more like beta's, the first one was really unpolished out the gate. I don't have high expectations for this one. Too much time is going into the pretty and not the experience.

Doesn't change the fact that it's one of the best games ever made

I wouldn't say that, the exploration parts tend to a be a bit boring and the items sitting on the ground aren't really as visible as they should be. Doing the little quests can be a real grind.

Does this game feature realistic crashes though? Or are all the cars still magically invulnerable except to a few minor cosmetic scratches and superficial damage? Always find the lack of accurate damage modelling a real immersion killer.

You might want to check out wreckfest if you want to smash cars.
