PUBG and FNAF; the fads of modern gaming - BadFive

We live in an age where mediocre games can become incredibly popular because of dumb luck and promotion from YouTubers or Twitch streamers. These games, in my opinion, are terrible, but once the cycle of internet promotion and word of mouth starts, quality doesn’t matter anymore. Some people choose to play the latest fad for that reason alone.

The story is too old to be commented.

Multiplayer-only games don't usually get a lot of depth. The players themselves supply whatever nuances are possible within the virtual worlds. I'm not disagreeing with you, though. Less development work, high popularity, great profits from sales and microtransactions. Why wouldn't profit-seeking developers go for these?
