Not only have videogames grown to resemble competition-based, interactive movies, but COVID-19-related lockdowns have propelled the industry to make more...
Yet they still want to raise game prices
personally, I don't care about prices! Just don't bring fucking politics into games, it has already fucked up Hollywood!
Games have always been about politics!! What rock are you under?
So why are you talking about politics then? And stop being a snowflake thinking is not that hard.
What is politics? That’s such a broad term. The latest call of duty is political? Warfare is always political…
People that complain about politics are EXACTLY the same people that DO bring politics into gaming because what they really mean to say is “I don’t want any developer to express themselves in a way that does not fit my worldview”
Yea Jim Sterling did a piece on how there’s no real reason for the price raise. I remember when N64 games were 79.99. Didn’t last long, I’ll tell you that much.
A bigger market does not mean each games cost less to make or each game is guarantee to make a profit.
Yet they make more profit than ever...
You know much work goes into making high-end games these days? Because the costs to develop are going up and you want to argue that prices shouldn't because the industry is doing better?
Better? They're selling And making millions upon millions. Any dev who isn't an indie are more than fine financially for the most part.
Well a few greedy companies are. They are making more money than ever packing games with micro transactions and still have the nerve to try and charge 70$ for a game. If u notice every one of those 70$ games have been on sale plenty of times already
That's WHY they can.
I'm just shocked at the amount of sales we've had this year, one ends, and a week or two later we have another one.
I remember back in the 80’s being laughed at and being an outcast for playin videogames now it’s bigger than everything now who’s laughing
well, apart from all the people doing sports, they are healthy or at least, healthy-er, people who just watched sports and didn't participate,,, they they got nothing out of it.
Some of us do sports AND play videogames lol There's still a degree of stigma even now, which is crazy. People think it's cool to mock gamers for some reason. As this article says, it was already huge and it's grown exponentially during 2020, yet still the masses and main stream media treat it like the ginger stepchild of entertainment. It makes no sense.
I'm sure there are still a lot of people who stereotype gamers to this day, but I'm equally sure many of those same people have spent much of the pandemic vegging out and watching Netflix, which is very much a solitary and sedentary activity that involves a lot of screen time.
I love gaming. When I retire someday I'm just going to play games all day
That's a retirement plan I can support. Backlog, here I come!
Good luck in not getting burnt out on games. I think everyone experiences that.
Why not? You're never too old for gaming: https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Hopefully sport comes back roaring when we are done with this shitshow of a year. Movies too.
They can't play sports if they're all kneeling.
Oh come on man, I expect better from you. There is nothing wrong with showing solidarity with others’ grievances in my opinion. Politics aside, you would want and expect the same of your fellow man.
So in your mind, using the same allotted time to kneel in which they were typically standing prevents them from playing sports. You kneeling before Sony hasn't slowed down your ability to respond...one might say it actually increased your responding. @S2Killinit Why in the world would you have expected better? Have you not seen the post history?
Gaming is gonna grow even more in the future, especially when VR reaches a point of fidelity that mirrors real life.
Couldn't care less, keep bringing me the top tier games all that matters.
Decentralize is the future, don't depend on corporation.
What else are you gonna do after working from home. Play video games.
Lol, this - what used to be called travel time is now gaming time!
Hollywood is out of ideas if they have to rehash old franchises and screw them up like the retake on Ghostbusters and Robocop. The sequels suck such as Terminator Dark Fate and when they tap into something new like Transformers they totally do a 360 and by pass the source material. I would love to watch sport I love hockey but can't go to a game and the season is cut in half then what's the point gaming is a cheaper alternative. They tell a story, have great music, characters that you can relate to and sequels are usually better then the first game. A good game can keep me entertained for days a movie we'll say 2hrs and sports maybe an hour and a half.
And they desperately need microtransactions and $80 games...you know cause "inflation".
