GamePlayersReview.com looks at the dirty tactics game developers use to increase profit.
And??Music and movies do the same also.
Every entertainment business does the same. The myth is that this sort of stuff only appeals to teenage boys and of course the gaming industry does it more than the other forms of entertainment. The reality is that the gaming industry, as well as other entertainment industry and even non entertainment industry, uses these methods because they appeal to both MEN and WOMEN of All Ages and sexual preferences. When people stop buying products that use this form of persuasion then companies will move on to some other way to sell their products and services.
This is how they make money They put their right hand in. They put their right hand out. They put their right hand in & they shake it all about. They do the hokey pokey & they turn themselves around. That what it's all about yeah
That made my day, bubbles to you lol.
1-put guns how weapons in every game possible. 2-put a guy with a gun in the game box art. 3-sell the game talking of graphics,res,frame rate. 4-make review embargos of overhyped games. 5-give gifs to reviewers to get more forgiving scores. 6-use high end pc footage how console footage in reveals or trailers.
Yep, that pretty much sums it up
Unless it's and RPG. THen you need a scantily clad chick in Bikini armor with beachballs for breasts and cleavage like the grand canyon!
What snooki hair on my avatar? Microsoft take my money!!!!!1!1
The scummiest way game developers make money is by advertising & hyping games with features that are not in the game & the final product not reaching the advertised level. Worryingly It seems to be increasing ten-fold over the last 3-4 years as well. It's something that happens in no other industry & simply legally wouldn't be allowed in any other either. Yet the games industry not only allows it but thrives on it & pre sells you the game based on these lies. At some point soon I think they will go too far though & I think some kind of new legislation will be brought in to stop it, although it'll only get worse before it gets better.
This is quite possibly the worst article I have ever read on N4G. I'm sorry, but the writer seems to operate under the delusion that he/she is a writer, when in fact, you are nothing of the sort. "Nintendo making the same **** over and over the twenty years?" This is the third article in as many days that I have had to criticize for the lack of professionalism. I stopped reading after the profanity and not because it offends me. There are thousands of words to choose from in the English language and if hell and ass are the most creative you can come up with than you are just another in a long list of adolescents in a state of arrested development posing as an adult and you are also a terrible writer. And that's too bad, because I am sure you had a point to make, but sadly your lack of professionalism and respect for good writing make reading your work an unbearable exercise.
+bubs and strong agreement.
Force advertising store items in the game menus like COD:Ghosts. Also, selling competitive multiplayer map packs, some people buy them just because they don't want to be fragmented from the main group of players. This is what happens to me with every COD, because I feel the maps are overpriced and get worse each year, so I don't buy them - very few short months later it becomes hard to find matches. I usually can't find Kill Confirmed matches after 1am. It's dirty to basically force us to buy map packs, just to have people to play with still.
I've got a problem with the sex, reason. All of those images of women with big breasts are actually really good games, and they're known to be around the gaming community. And on top of that, who cares? Do gamers want hot chicks with big t*ts? Apparently so...we don't feel gilted in the least. It's not a problem, so why mention it?
For the sex issue, I don't think it was some Puritanical idea that they didn't want to put boobs on characters. There were a technological limits to what could be produced. Simply put, square boobs aren't sexy. Once the tech rose to the correct level, they could use better assets to reproduce, enhance, and even exaggerate the female form. The biggest issue, from this list, is the proliferation of DLC. Some DLC is good. But, when parts of the game are intentionally left out for the sake of DLC, that's just greedy business. The rest of the list is optional for most gamers. You don't like sex, don't buy the game. You don't like paid demos, then stay away from them. You are not down to fund a kickstarter...don't!
"The Scummiest Ways Game Developers Make Money" A: ...Just release another COD.
Don't be so hypocrite, most of the entertainment companies like videogame and film in the industry are doing this..
The only reason I watch anime is because every girl has a huge rack now.
