Please Stop Making Console RTS Games

Alex S. from Link-Cable writes: "I often try to contain my emotions when discussing something that I’m passionate about and will offer up some points and counterpoints that are fair and well-reasoned.

It’s a gameplay style that is basically the antithesis of console gaming, from both a stylistic approach and a technical level. So this is my plea – stop making console RTS games!"

Why? I'm a huge fan of RTS and that's since games like Warcraft and Warhammer: Shadow of the Horned Rat on PS1.

Tropico 5 actually played great on PS4, which I wasn't expecting. There's room for all genres if done right on any system.

I will admit, keyboard and mouse is much better, but why limit gamers that choose to play on console and might find some new found enjoyment in a different genre?

PC developers could always do what Valve did with CS:GO. Valve made CS: GO for consoles as well but totally ignored it when it comes to updates and content. It was valve saying hey, if you like this you need to go to PC to update it.

Who are you to demand limits on what console users get to play?

oh boy. another skilless dude who needs mouse and keyboard to be any good at a game? how pathetic. i thought by 2018 everyone knew already that it‘s the brain that makes a person, not the tools. personally, i am completely fine with rts games on console. judging by my trophy list i‘m better than most. so please stop the whining and stop posting BS blog posts.
