You think microtransactions are the devil, that they’re destroying the entire video game industry? Cameron thinks otherwise.

"Let’s be blunt, I’m a busy working adult who is also a full-time student; odds are whoever is reading this falls into the ‘busy adult’ category of their own mix, likely even busier than myself. We do not have the free time like we used to. We do not have time to unlock every gun, skin, and sight in Call of Duty. We do not have time to do every single quest line in Fallout 3; we just simply do not have time to play as much of any given game as we may like. For many a busy adult, microtransactions actually help those with a hectic life."

Great, another person who gives the excuse that they don't have time so pay money to unlock things. Can we stop with this crap? I have seen many articles defending microtransactions lately. If you can't see that this is hurting the game industry then you might as well stop playing games altogether.

Also, there was an alternative to this $hitty microtransaction practice back then that was free. Its called Cheat Codes.

Yea, it's a pretty crappy practice that microsoft does but is not the only one guilty of this shitty unjustifiable practice. I like them though because all there games are coming over to PC and because of scropio im sure their exclusive will look amazing on pc and scropio .

It's not really an excuse as much as it is reality. As someone who has been playing video games since the SNES, I personally want to take in as many games as possible. Considering micro transactions tend to be out of the way and as well as nonmandatory to finish the game or see everything, it's an alternative rather than a cut off. I'm sorry you see this as harmful, and I'm also sorry if my article has offended you in any way.

Stay awesome

I don't agree with microtransactions but its either this, or $100 games. DLC as well but not all DLC is a cash grab.

CJ64Bit2752d ago

See the beauty comes in when games offer free dlc because of their inclusion of micro transactions. You still get all the extra content and you never need to spend a dime if you don't want to!

GTA 5 DLC: Parts of Canceled Project Made Its Way to GTA Online

A Former Rockstar dev has revealed that they were making a GTA 5 DLC, but it was scrapped since GTA Online was such a "cash cow," though it wasn't a total waste as parts of it made its way to GTA Online.

What a damn shame. Sinfmgle player dlc could've been so dope but nope fk you single player guys.

Perfect reason why I'm against single player games having multiplayer attached. Eat up more resources

Sure the story mode which got a 97 metacritic isn't as bad as people think. Stupid ass article.

GamerRN10d ago (Edited 10d ago )

Who actually thought it was bad? Personally, I think they should have finished the Story DLC to at least gauge sales and if it was worth it vs GTO.

Terry_B11d ago

I think I did not see even one thought out piece by this site named tech4gamers yet. Nope..no approvals for this nonsense from me.

isarai10d ago

Ive never heard anyone really complain about the story mode 🤨

cloganart10d ago (Edited 10d ago )

Just some people who didn't like that the story was split between 3 protagonists and kinda had weird pacing because of it.

Rebel_Scum10d ago

I didnt like how the heists consisted of 3 preparation/fetch quests which were dull as. Also there should’ve been more heists and more assassination missions.

It was pretty good apart from that.

But yeah some folks didnt like the character switch on release.

gold_drake10d ago

ehhh who exactly thinks the story mode is "bad" ?

Dudeson10d ago

The only bad about it is that there isn't any more! Cancelled story dlc to make online stuff... But hopefully gta 6 will be a great adventure again.
