5 PC sequels that exposed the greed of their developers

GamesMoviesDeals: The PC crowd has long had to suffer shovelware, badly-ported games, pretentious indie publications and the tyranny of free-to-play, pay-to-win online monoliths. Considering all the software balancing, hardware tinkering and budget management just to keep up with (or stay ahead of) this generation’s consoles, you have to wonder why us keyboard warriors keep going without succumbing to the simplistic joy of the console.

I like to think it’s because every now and then, we get gems. Stellar little games that become classics in their own right. So that’s why, when these classics return in new and improved formats and sequels, it pains us to see how far their creators have fallen – be it to appeasing simplicity for the console ports, the wallet-draining greed of the DLC machine, or even to pure and simple laziness. So let’s sit together and lament the comebacks that ruined our favourites forever.

Payday 2 has $131 of DLC and a crate and key system. They make EA look generous. And were supposed to be excited about The Walking Dead game. Why? So you can ram more DLC and microtransactions into the game. There is a reason I havent touched the game since 2013.

Do people not realize the consequences of buying this crap??

Also isnt it nice to have a website with every game on the same page and not get bombarded by ads??

Yea payday is real bad in the dlc department. Friends and I picked it up but when they started releasing all the dlc we said nope and just torrented it. We still play on tungle to this day because it can be a lot of fun. The continuous dlc really ruined the game as a whole.
