I wish more games had the option for AI companions/bots instead of forcing your to play online.

Remember when lan parties were the norm, and people were shitting on ubi for their always online bs that most other devs would avoid doing the same? Good times.

and paid influencers to give +ve early impressions

It's quite impressive that PayDay 2 has 17.204 players right now on Steam, while PayDay 3 has 336


Payday 2 doesn't even deserve that, and you can probably point towards its discounted price given its age for the reason why its current player count sits above Payday 3. Let's forget reviews from critics for a moment and focus on what gamers like you and I think. The 1st game received a rating of 6.5, Payday 2 received a rating of 4, and the last installment received a rating of 3.1. The franchise is trash and always has been. I'm not sure why it receives anything but negative press.

It's because the game had identity for its time, and most importantly was easily accessible. Simple gameplay, it ran even on potatoes, and was coop focused; all formula for it spreading like the plague. Honestly just like Team Fortress.
I will disagree with you on the front that it's trash. Just mediocre. However people have an extreme positivity bias towards it because it's pretty much a game everyone has played, probably had some hearty multiplayer experiences to cherish and stuff.

Why bother polishing a game when Xbox will pay you for it sight unseen

TheProfessional92d ago

What does that have to do with it? The first two were stull huge on PC and PS so no way they rushed this just to get money from gamepass. And ever heard of early access? The whole industry has been releasing broken games lately.

It was pushed as a day 1 gamepass title and the quality wasn't up to snuff

I wish there were more stealth mechanics but I understand if they don’t add that

how will fairgame$ compare do people think..

I never played payday at all

Profchaos92d ago

I've got low expectations for fairgame

Tacoboto92d ago

Fairgame$, don't forget that stupid little $ in its name.

And to think Sony thought that studio was worth buying. With a CG trailer announcement I can't think of a worse way to first show it to the world.
