Anthem feels hopeless

When Anthem launched players quickly realized that, underneath all that hype about an ever-evolving story and world, it was a disjointed, unimaginative loot shooter full of needless padding and repetitive missions. But there was also a glimmer of hope. Anthem wasn't the first live-service game to launch in a bad state, and though things were grim, other games like Diablo 3 and Battlefield 4 had skirted similar launch disasters. But nothing in the past four months since Anthem's release—including its long-awaited and over-promised Cataclysm endgame—has given me any confidence in BioWare's ability to turn things around.

The game has loads of potential. It's the management at Bioware that's hopeless.

Given that the issues started with Bioware, doesn't that mean that the project was doomed from the beginning?

Potential? For what to be the biggest disaster of this gen, although I think Fallout 76 has that beat.

Well, at least Bethesda stuck with Fallout 76 and are trying to give the customers a working product. Whereas Bioware has said a lot but done very little with Anthem.

Anthem IS hopeless. Idc what dlc comes out for this game, I am never going back to it. There are so many design decisions that could've made this game viable. I bought it, I played it. TBH the gameplay is really fun if unbalanced at times. But the hub isn't intuitive, the story is forgettable, it's glitchy, not alot of end game motivation.

The hub is my biggest problem. You have to spend way too much time there. I dont want to slowly walk around trying to find npc's to have drawn out conversations with just to get a side mission or increase loyalties that ultimately mean nothing. On top of that they kinda punish you for free roaming cuz it's the worse way to level up. Spending time actually playing the game is the worse way to level up LOL. I'm good.

Where are all the people that defended this EA classic BS at release? Now suddenly they are all in silence... fanboyism is an ugly thing

Now people are going to be hoping they can pull a Destiny and fix it with an expansion.

If they can manage that, at least it will be free
