Quote from: SekiArt on July 14, 2015, 07:05:14 pmI really think that today, in the industry of gamecreation, no one really cares about the gamers and fans.

Quote from: KK20 on July 15, 2015, 02:05:16 amI personally believe this is far off from reality.
Quote from: KK20 on July 15, 2015, 02:05:16 am[...]but companies that refuse to listen to their consumers [...] honestly should consider picking up a new hobby.
Quote from: KK20 on July 15, 2015, 02:05:16 amWhile this may be true for some companies more than others, the game industry as a whole is more than aware that their users' loyalty is what makes or breaks them.
Quote from: KK20 on July 15, 2015, 02:05:16 amKinda sad that on the list of movies near the end, I think I've only seen 2 of them.
QuoteCOD for instance, or FIFA.

Quote from: Blizzard on July 18, 2015, 04:46:01 amPreorder is a horrible practice. DLC could have been a great thing, but it was ruined. Microtransactions aren't so bad in general, but the problem is that it's abused by companies beyond all reasoning. Just like you said, 400 coins per match and 1-1.5 million coins for the best player. And it's just one player.That kinda reminds me of that Yugioh game for Playstation where you get between 1-5 starships after every match and you can get some rare cards by spending starchips. Some of these cards cost easily 10k+ starchips. (Not to mention then 999999 cards that are just there for show, but not really meant for you to be able to buy.)But not all games are like this. And there have been some truly amazing advancements in game development over the last decade. Don't let that commercial shit deter you so easily.
Quote from: Blizzard on July 18, 2015, 12:54:05 pmI disagree. It's true that the AAA industry really pushes that crap, but indies rarely do. So they are the minority. That being said, I agree that there is too much of it.
Quote from: Blizzard on July 20, 2015, 02:40:37 amIt's quite simple:The AAA industry is doing it for the money.Indies may begin doing it for fun, but later it's 50-50.Amateurs do it for fun.And that's it. I can tell that this is really it from personal experience. I don't mind CP being for free since I did that game out of love for game development. But I wouldn't make another huge free game anymore. I don't have the time. So I'm personally at 50-50 now. I do love making games, but I also want to make a living off it.
Quote from: SekiArt on July 22, 2015, 03:03:34 pmToday, AAA games all kinda Sell for the same high price. Some are worth it, some not. If I feel my game is worth 10 bucks for example, than I as a gamer get the feel, that it is worth that much.

Thank the heavens for Steam sales. xD I barely pay the full price for a AAA title anymore.
