Piracy is one reason why the server-based, free to play model has come into vogue: it's easier to prevent piracy. But it makes for awful games.

The reality is opposite, developers figured out most people are at subhuman levels of intelligence as they saw with riot, and got all starry-eyed, that they can release a multiplayer game with a couple maps and just charge for models and skins for characters without ever giving people the game

I mean, that's kind of the point of the 'e' in Esports no?
To differentiate it from regular "sports" without the 'e'.

A sport requires a modicum of physical effort at the very least. Why not call it what it is? Pro-Gaming. If gaming is a sport than so is watching TV.

Uhh gaming requires effort, it's just a more mental kind of effort. Go play SMITE and do the matchmaking and watch how much difference there is between good and bad players. Huge difference between players. It's part of the reason gaming was dumbed down, the average person sucks at videogames so games are dumbed down to chimp factor five because of the poor reflexes and general stupidity of the average gamer.

9.7m might of played it, but 9.7m wont buy it or reinstall it if free.
Are you kidding? I am an old school Quake/UT player. I wanted to hate it but it was awesome. Instant buy on release.

I can't say the same, it's nothing new in FPS land.

"HDD Shipments Down 20% in Q1 2016, Hit Multi-Year Low."

Yeah that has something to do with high hard drive prices, I remember when 2TB drives were $69 CDN. Given the length of time 3TB drives should be in the 70-80 dollar range but the go from 109 to 120.

There was all sorts of crazy shit in the mod community if you ever played anything besides bog standard games you'd know that. You come off as another retard.

Then prove it. Name some multiplayer FPS mods from the 90s that had melee tanks with AOE shields, Pudge hooks, time rewinds, ultimates etc. Do it. You can't cuz you're full of shit.

I don't need to prove shit when there is google dumbass. There's this thing called moddb. You simply google 'quake mods' and you'll find all sorts of interesting shit. I'm not going to do homework for historically illiterate shit for brains like you.

a) Steam took us away from crazy levels of DRM like starforce, to much more reasonable levels of steam DRM.

Sorry to tell you that ain't the case. EA is planning for a future where they "Stream" games to us, aka everything will go 'online only' in the future. That's the future they want where videogames are encrypted internet broadcasts, they want to turn games into TV.

The DRM fenix rises again.

Sorry to tell you also, "online games", overwatch is drm'd game. So we're already there. You now have paid for a game that can be shut off if blizzard deems it so.

MMO's are drm'd games FYI. The are just software rebadged via marketing speak.

Basically the crazier and greedier grabs for money keep getting worse, and people don't stop buying them but just keep sucking it up, so it keeps getting worse. Steam didn't cause that.

Yeah they did, alright since they have market power in the relationship and the average human being is ignorant as fuck. Because they have billions of dollar and armies of psychologists they get to push changes on people who are ignorant and unaware of how they are being ripped off. Most people don't understand how technology works nor should they be expected to know how it works, the human mind didn't evolve to participate in a high tech capitalist society. This is why we have such bizarre and corrupt behaviour being fed by the illiterate and ignorant among mankind.

The problem is human reasoning does not work anything like free market theory requires in order to function.

Anybody who truly believes that Steam has not been the strongest force in ensuring the continuing health of PC gaming over the past decade is in complete denial.

Bullshit, steam enabled online DRM and normalized it. The rise of F2P games like league of legends where you can't make new levels, skins, or mod the game is total bullshit and notice more and more big releases are rebadged with marketing terms "online only" or "social game" or blizzard rebranding/telling us "diablo 3 was really meant to be an MMO"

You have to be at fucking subhuman levels of intelligence to think steam saved PC gaming, steam is fucking cancer. From greenlight, to early access, to being spied on every waking moment of time you are playing a game with steam integration.

PC gaming would have survived just fine without steam, there was always money in PC games. The corporate world just wants total fucking control and idiot morons like you give it them. Anyone who thinks the modern gaming environment is positive with the lack of dedicated servers players control, lack of lan, DRM in diablo 3, single player lag, is a fucking moron extrodinaire. Pre-high speed internet being everywhere they had to give you the fucking entire game, now they can chop it up and turn into some gangrene bullshit with a storefront to sell you "nothing" for a game that you will never own and who's content is totally owned by the game company.

Compared to the days of duke, descent and Quake, modern gaming is fucking cancer. Watching people slobber all over overwatch or battleborn with online drm was the last straw for me. The people who inhabit modern gaming are just fucking slave like corporate ball licking shit for brains.

The reason people buy steam games on sale, is there's no point in paying full price for a game you are essentially 'renting' and can be taken away at any time should valve change when its leader dies.

The DOOM multiplayer beta was not representative of the final product

LOL man you need to go back to class, of course the beta was representative of the final product, it's not going to magically play radically differently from what we got in beta. With stupid classes and weapon limits.

The world is full of enough bullying, anger, and hate .. I come to this site in hopes to avoid it.

You can't get around it, the average person is dumb. So because gamers are people, and the vast majority of internet commenter are made by middle half of the IQ distribution, you get corporate bend over love fests and justifiable negative reaction to it to those who still have a functional brain and want gaming to be the best not a corporate controlled wasteland that it is becoming.

Another dumbass analysis. Name one multiplayer FPS from the 90s that had melee tanks with AOE shields, Pudge hooks, time rewinds, ultimates etc. If Suppa was talking about cars he'd think he's seen it all after the invention of the model T.

There was all sorts of crazy shit in the mod community if you ever played anything besides bog standard games you'd know that. You come off as another retard. Overwatch is the ultimate newbie game. Everything you mentioned makes it sound cool but doesn't mean shit because the game is so console-ized. AKA 1 weapon carry limits, infinite ammo, instant kill ultimates. That screams "newbie game" in a nutshell.

Your comparison is not an apt one, what about overwatch is new in terms of fps games? Not anything. No level editors, forced online matchmaking, drm, oh and a full price tag. It screams that the people that love it are part of the retard set. If overwatch was the 2nd coming it'd be able to be modded and not just another tf2+ moba clone hybrid. I swear the love for moba's/always online/f2p has just gotten out of control. You are not part of my generation, or if you were you were part of the stupid half feeding mmo scamware of the 90's that lead to drm/steam and having our rights taken away as gamers.

20 years from 1995 gaming has gone backwards in time, locking down everything on the other side of the internet and trying to turn games into broadcast tv with no level editors, buying skins for a game you'd never own and a game totally controlled to drip feed content to retarded mouthbreathers like you.

Anyone trying out Open Beta? I've heard a lot of folks gushing about how good it is.....but I heard that about Diablo III and HotS at launch too.

You can tell overwatch was a salvaged project, the levels are uninspired and the whole game feels like team fortress rip off. The game itself is just meh, it isn't anything we haven't played before. People raving over this shit were all born after PC gaming in the 90's. Overwatch is largely stupid, if you played anything in the 90's this is nothing new at all. It's just another ho-hum fps for the bottom feeding trash among the gaming community and the young ones with no memory of games that were made pre-2000. Why the hell would you want to play a game with one weapon carry limit? It has console-itis written all over it.

Next is the drm, the matchmaking in overwatch is total balls and the game is totally controlled by bliz, good luck to those players paying $40 for a game they can shut off at any time.

The pacing and time-to-kill need to be tweaked down and teamplay made more important.

Say what, a good team in overwatch will wreck you silly because if you go in without certain classes on your team you'll get raped silly. Just try defending a point against a good team without classes that can drop shields skills.

So TF2 is a console game as well? Rolleyes

TF2 was mostly a let down to those of us who played the original, after TF2 went f2p it was casual city. TF2 is the ultimate newbie game now.

when in reality, they're just finishing the game after charging people for a partial experience so they don't get sued, or what?

It's been that way since around 2001, when xbox 1 came out and ms started charging people for xbox live and not to mention horse armor. Shit is ancient, there is a new generation of kids that has no memory pre 2000 so they have no fucking clue how fucked up gaming is and how corrupt the industry actually is.

To put it in context, I replay the original Halo every year or two and it`s still a blast, every time. Half Life 2? Played once, never went back.

I really don't care how much of a blast you had, going from Quake2/UT/quake3 CTF, threewave, rocket arena, custom levels, skins, modding, and watching halo get bought out and released and then dumbed down for console was horrifying for those of us who were waiting on the PC release after mac before bungie was bought out. When microsoft took an interest in bungie halo's design went into the shitter to cater to the reflexless masses. Halo was the beginning of 2 weapon carry limit, thats why it's such a mocked title. FPS design was forever changed by halo and not in a good way.

Compared to Quake's speed, DOOM feels like Halo. Doom also has a two-weapon limit, which I believe Halo introduced and made standard. Any multiplayer game by id will be judged by Quake standards and DOOM doesn't measure up.

Halo was the original newbie game, we used to make fun of halo because it was supposed to be a full blooded PC/MAc first person shooter before Microsoft bought out bungie. So Halo was actually downgraded for consoles. The regenerating health, little in the way of powerups and "hold you by the hand gently" gameplay is what gave birth to the term console-itis.

"That game has consol-itis!" So doom has a case of console-itis.

I'd like to present you with this week's Most Confusing Reply Award.

Dude said nothing about DRM, and even if he had, your contention that DRM means a game "is essentially F2P" is nonsensical.

No it isn't, if a game is locked down to a back end server and you don't control it, you don't really control the game, you don't have the game in your hands, one part of the game that is needed for the game to work is taken hostage on the other side of the internet.

A game is just software, f2p games are a category label for just software that is broken into two pieces. Overwatch is a piece of software that is broken into two pieces.

They are the same in terms of the game code being split. To put it in words your little brain will understand: Imagine getting a console game where there are two DVD's but one is missing because the corporations didn't give you the whole game, they kept one DVD to themselves to make sure they control the game and the game code and you need to use your dvd and the login screen to login to their server to access the other parts of the game code.

So no you didn't "buy the game", because you and most gamers are computer illiterate. You bought a game that isn't yours and doesn't run entirely on your computer. You did something stupid.
