Op Ed

Destructoid - Is the end nigh for single-player games?
"Unfortunately, it may be the case that people are simply becoming tired of single-player campaigns, even if they don't want to admit that to themselves. They surreptitiously only play GTA V for the online multiplayer components, and would never think of playing Watch Dogs 2 without mowing down other player-controlled hackers in a 4x4. And even if players do want single-player games, that needs to convert to cold, hard cash studios can't survive on fans' love. Fans need to go out and buy as much content as they can to keep the games going, at least for a little while longer. And even then, we may see them collapse for good in ten years' time."

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.


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.
