My problem with EA is that some games just never seem to get out of early access. Seems like some devs spend more time keeping their audience updated than actually working on finishing the game.

I liked the old model more: Developers work on their game, finish the product they always intended to make, then listen to their customers for continuous support.

I don't get EA gamers either. Why bleed a game dry before you manage to play the finished product?! I accidentally bled Subnautica dry because I didn't know I was playing an EA (no comment...). I'll play the 1.0 when it's done, but the newness is gone.

I think some genres work better for this than others. MP only games seem to benefit from it, like PUBG (Which still feels EA after 1.0 but is still great). Same with sandbox sims like Kerbal, Factorio or Prison Architect which were all amazing well before 1.0.

Anything Narrative does not suit it. Unexplored and Pit People are fantastic but seem like they might have been better cooked longer before public release, though they may be benefiting from crowd sourced testing. Pit People especially is going to be sad when it gets released because my daughter and I have already experienced most of it piecemeal, though maybe I'll be surprised and there will be 5x more story content on release but I doubt it.
