it's really simple: if you charge money for game, DON'T PUT THAT CRAP IN!!!

Warframe's business model is the way all games should be done. If you haven't played it and love FPS/RPG/Action games you are doing yourself a disservice. To my point, Warframe is a game that is TRULY free to play, it gives you the option to buy currency to get access to guns and speeds up time to build them but, all players of the game can get the same weapons, costumes, skins, and any other item in the game, and the leveling system requires you to play the game to have ability to buy/use the weapon so you will never be outmatched by a lower level player (there are a few exceptions to this but, none of them change one players advantage over another). If all games followed a similar model the gaming industry would be both lucrative for the devs and fun for the players. Imagine if Destiny 2 was free, you get all the expansions, for free. Then imagine that to get a legendary weapon you could grind for it on missions, strikes, and raids or buy it. The only difference is that you wont get the special badge or marking you get for completing the mission. So this is 2 fold, if you beat the mission and get the gun you have both proof your a bad ass gamer and the weapon to back it up, or you have the bad ass weapon but still need to step up and beat the level or your fellow players will know you didn't truly earn the weapon and drive the player to complete the mission for his or her marking or badge. So, this gives the gamer freedom, first if you don't like the game you didn't just throw $60 plus DLC in the trash, instead you paid the developer for doing a GOOD JOB and encouraging them to continue to support the game. Warframe and others like it have evolved over time into better more in depth games with stories, new characters, weapons, skins, levels, enemies etc and if you didn't want to, you didn't have to spend a dime to play it. There are others like me that don't have the pleasure to play the game all the time so spending few $ here and there to speed progress of building a weapon is worth it and, it supports the developers of the games I love and not some big company taking large margins from the creators. If you disagree I would love to hear your comments, I just think its time for players to speak directly to their game creators and reward them for a job well done instead of paying to find out the game is crap. One more thing STOP PRE-ORDERING GAM$ make them win/earn your business.

I'm curious why railroad simulators, that basically have thousands of dollars of DLC where engines and routes are locked behind purchases that are in some cases more expensive than the actual game, are given a pass in these discussions and never mentioned.

You had to play the game for 40 hours to get a hero hows that bad? I mean you have to play call of duty for 700 hours to get chrome camo....

At number 3 you can use free mods that are even better than the creation club. It is just some for the people who want to.

Destiny 2’s base max power was 330? I might be misremembering this but if I’m not that’s a pretty big oversight

My personal worst cash-grab: Having to buy a New 3DS to play SNES games, even though the original 3DS is capable of doing much better!
Marcus Reineck (2 days ago)
I am totally against this development of gambling systems in game but some of the things you were talking about made no fucking sense. I played through the whole of shadow of mordor on launch and I didn't even know there was a currency system until I had finished it. Another thing that I think you fail to consider is the fact that AAA games cost a lot of money to make and the cost keeps increasing but the pricing of games have stayed relatively the same for quite a while. If companies can't make a profit on their product of course they will have to find other ways to do that. All that being said, locking away parts of the original game is not the right way to handle it.
Dual Purpose (2 days ago)
Why is every console AA game priced at 60 dollars. A fighting game when newly released should never be $60. Any street fighter or mortal kombat should release new at $40. You price your game according to development and content availability. Making a street fighter doesnt require as much cost as making an uncharted or spiderman. Dribing games should be at the $40 price point. Cod is a small shooter which is mostly unchanged and uses the smae map templates...$40.

End paywall behind online mp. As they aren't providing internet isp. They literally are just accessing servers...thats it. Dlc should be gone, loot crates, dmr. We a know xbox is the forerunner in all these practices....theu forced the competition to have make online available at a cost to remain financially competitive. Consumers got right this time around when they noticed the backlash from dmr. Now only if xbox gamers could've done that for online gameplay it would have forced ms to offer free online. The whole industry would be forced to not make online only accessible through paying. These are the reasons the ps2 remains the greatest system.

Jason (3 days ago)
I kind of find it funny, that EA had a franchise that can literally SELL ITSELF, like legit with the Star Wars game they would barely have needed to market it. They could’ve chosen to do FUCK ALL, and it’s likely the Star Wars game would’ve been a commercial success. They put genuine effort into stealing people’s money, and for their efforts the game was less commercially successful. What a great publisher.

Lootboxes and paid DLC is only a thing because people still pay for it. It'll take a conglomerate of the gaming community boycotting DLC to get publishers to even slightly notice a drop in in-game purchases.

As for DLCs: New cosmetics (skin packs, new good-looking blocks) - Yes. (eg FortressCraft Evolved's Dapper and Skin Pack DLC) New story lines with new gameplay - Yes. (eg Fortresscraft Evolved Frozen Factory) Access to new 'beta' features that will eventually reach the main game - Yes. (eg TerraTech R&D pack) Making the game easier - Big NO as that changes the gameplay from "play & have fun" to "send money". (this includes microtransactions like in Clash of Clans)
Alex Price (6 days ago)
I do not mind lootboxes PROVIDED it's just cosmetics. And tbh these systems seem to work 100x better whilst not pissing the fanbase off completely. Just look at Overwatch, CS:GO, Fortnite etc
Jericho Jim (6 days ago)
This may be a bit stretched. But honestly i think Fortnite does a somewhat good job with their store and battle pass deal. You pay for skins you really really want, play the pass if there is something you like is there and not have to rely on a loot box gamble like in said game that forces you to grind for hours on end or have 50 to 100 loot box openings for for 1 thing.

Why do you hate money? Gaming companies need to make money to make more games!
Aurora Ackley (8 days ago)
Heres one that I hate: A console game disc that requires the internet to not only load into the console but to be played as well. Basically making it so to be able to use the game in anyway it needs the internet after you paid $60 + dollars for the disc.
Erik Throndson (8 days ago)
Destiny should be higher on the list . They have consistently fucked over the player base.

Stop buying microtransations and developers will stop making them in games. Simple as that

What upsets me most about Deus Ex Mankind Divided is that its actually a really solid game, unfortunately SE is too blind to realize that their greed is what caused this game to sell poorly and they put it on hiatus. It is possible we will never see another deus ex. And as a hardcore fan of the franchise that is so depressing.

I'm surprised the Sims wasn't on here. It has copious amounts of DLC. Considering all of the main expansions are sold for the same cost of the base game, small add-ons that will cost about $10 each and one or two free updates, its almost as expensive as Train Simulator. EA has a problem.

MOre and grabbier AAA companies == More and better indie developers to fill the quality gap. So I say AAA comps go for it. We need more Indie!

I feel like the In-game currency that you have to pay real money for should just be banned, because like games are already so expensive, like $80 (in Canada that is) for 1 game then realizing you have to pay MORE money to get cool shit is insane...or I'm just broke and don't want to pay money to get cool shit. you should have to earn it by playing the games and doing challenges, none of this BS of "pay $100 for cool shit on top of a $80 game"
