Ah, so that's why Kojima was fired...

Such a lame age in the gaming industry.

I don't know why you're getting disagrees. We're apparently to the point now that pubs are firing devs if they refuse to design shitty, moneytrapping F2P games. It is not the brightest point the industry has seen.

I hope this is a fad just like motion control was with the Wii and the casuals, Mobile F2P will not cease to exist, but we will not get the onslaught of developers trying to jump wagon for some quick casual bucks.

The thing about Casuals is that something new to catch their attention (and $$$) will always come, not a good basket to put all your egss.

Figured. Go look at the leaderboards of any f2p game on the app store. The top players are always Japanese.

Generally the Japanese always appear to be highly skilled at games.

It is very sad to me the fact that the crappy mobile gaming scene is killing what once was a country "craddle" of the most amazing games and ideas ever.
