"We'll Fix it in the Patch" - Imagining 11 Early Access Games From Years Past

Mike from Twinfinite writes, "Early Access is very much an indie thing...for now. Who knows; perhaps it will evolve into a AAA model in the future, and while it's difficult to imagine what future games could be like with this model, I thought it might be worthwhile to see what classic games from past years might have been like if Early Access were always a part of video game development." (Culture, Half-Life 2: Episode Two , Halo, Retro, Shadow of the Colossus, Street Fighter 2, Super Mario Bros. 3)

You're basically paying for a Beta at that point. I rather wait and avoid the headache of bugs.

I imagine if I was playing Crash Bandicoot 1 and once I reached Papu Papu the game always froze, it would detract from the experience and I would honestly have no intention of going back even if they "Patched" it.

And not just that. My attention span is very limited and playing a alpha for a while the game would lose me.
My time is very precious and i wont waste it on a half baked game.
