I guess it wasn’t too late for PUBG and it still has quite the following. Contrary to what some folks tell me around here

"So by this I'm guessing youre hoping it fails or falls off the charts? Now that's trolling."

That's what you think I'm thinking, what i am actually thinking is "let's see if it has any legs."

@Kribwalker

It's the only game on that list that actually released in December, most of the other games on the list are 3-4 months old.

"Am i not allowed to bring attention to the success of the game? "

We both know that's not why your here.

"Contrary to what some folks tell me around here "

You came here to say "I told you so". That would be the trolling.

Actually, folks praising multiplayer games are killing the industry are just following the anti-EA/Phil Spencer trend, they just talk for the sake of be seen as "true gamers". A truly pretentious thing.

Fact is, multiplayer and online gaming has develop the social potential of videogames, and therefore they contribute to their evolution.

Single player games will never die, for the same reason you can have fun by reading a book, watching a movie, playing tennis against a robot, etc.

But it is known that trends like fortnite, minecraft and the infamous comments by EA made multiplayer games look bad in the eyes of those who like to call theirselves "gamers" as that would give them some kind of status. A pretty natural thing for an activity that is becoming more mainstream every day.

i agree with what you’re saying.

I played beat saber at a gaming expo just a few weeks ago. Pretty damn fun. And PUBG on the PS4 did better than expected. Go figure once it released that people would want to give it a try after playing fortnite all this time.

They said PUBG is repetitive, when every single match is different than any other. No, little kid, the fact that you die the same way in every match doesn't mean is repetitive, it just means you are a bad player, and don't learn from your mistakes.

Ricegum75d ago

Or maybe the game is repetitive?

Black-Helghast75d ago

Maybe you're just bad and that's why you think it's repetitive? I have a lot of fun with pubg on ps4 and every match is a different experience.

rainslacker75d ago

Considering all but one person in the match is going to die, it seems the odds are stacked against someone, so they're more likely to die, than win. Someone can be good at the game, and still die. If they're dying often, which statically, they will more than win, and the overall maps are limited and play all in the same way game play wise, that means repetative.

Why also assume that only people who die say that? I think most mp games are very repetative. Has nothing to do.with dying, just running the same content over and over again with little to know variation I feel is repetative

You're playing against other human players in a massive, kinda real life world, with a lot of yards, houses, mountains, cliffs, rivers, etc. you have several types of weapons, attachments, scopes, melee, that only few games out there has, all these "accesories" actually impact the gameplay, none of them are just re-skins. And, as i've said, you're playing against other players, not 8 of them, not 16, not 64, 99 of them, the chance of meeting new techniques, new strategies, new tactics, are absurdly massive, sum to that the 4 maps, the vehicles, and i'm just talking about the solo matches. If for you every "first person shooter" is the same then the problem is that you can't really see the difference. There is a reason why people play pubg instead of fortnite. But none of them (and i don't play fortnite) are repetitive, because of the big grid of possibilities they provide.

You know what's repetitive? A boring combat system in which you only have to press the axe button till all the bad-designed AI enemies are dead. Good stories, camera angles, cinematics and "mature" characters, don't hold up repetitive gameplay, that only happens if your focus is on stories and not becoming good in a game, in which case i would recommend some books and movies too not only videogames.

I'm gonna copypaste some other comment from myself to this for the sake of the discussion:

I'm not questioning the validity of MP gaming, or even sayings its repetative, although I do generally find it repetitive. I'm also speaking mostly about PUBG and not MP gaming as a whole.

I'm pointing out that while there may be many ways to approach a situation, it doesn't mean that its not repetitive. Many games have repetition in some places, but MP games in particular tend to not vary much once you play enough of them. Finding it repetitious, doesn't make one not good.

As far as the dying stuff goes, the game is set up so only one survives, so it seems logical that given a regularly equal skill set that people are going to die more than they're going to live.

If it makes you feel better, I usually find most MP games repetitious. Doesn't mean I find them to be bad games, just that they can't hold my interest for the long term.

The general public likes shit games for the most part.
