How can something that is optional ruin games.

You spent the last few weeks under a rock, haven't you?

Better question is, how can someone (you) be so oblivious?

Major publishers like EA got so greedy, selfish and careless that got caught by government. You crossed the line and now you will face suffer consequences.”sigh” It’s like people don’t have self control.

It isn’t. Until, at least, greed consume common sense and optional become almost mandatory, like in recent games.

When games are designed around MTs and when developers themselves tell us that we don't need to play the game they created which to me shows a complete lack of passion for what they're doing which might not affect the quality of the game but it could also affect it. Also with GaaS and MTs more than likely we will see less games in the long run because why move to the next one when you can milk a game dry for 5 years?

I wouldn't say ruining videogames as a whole. Only multiplayer videogames. My top 10 games this year didn't have any micro transaction issues so let's stop hyperbolic headlines that will get more clicks.

VersusDMC the reason the game is playable at ALL is because of headlines like this playing on OUR side. How many paid for headlines tried to make people give up fighting EA by telling us that we can't stop it? Or by saying it is not that bad for game A or game B.

How many times have you told them to stop headlines that defend micro-transactions?

VersusDMC21d ago

I like when headlines state exactly what the article is about and not try to scare people into reading the article.
F battlefront 2 and 2k18 with their micro transaction nonsense. I just want fear monger headlines to stop and for games media writers to be more professional.

@VersusDMC, so this article had a good title?

VersusDMC21d ago

All they had to say is "micro transactions are ruining multiplayer gaming" but they wanted to maximize clicks and included the whole industry in the title. So it's not a good title. Makes me believe they just want to get clicks off of people actually affected or mad about the whole situation. Without caring about the situation.

Then what according to you could have been a better alternative?
