Push out as much pretty aesthetics with crap gameplay, get initial sales, then hold people hostage with DLC. I hate the state of games today. Gone are the days when games are made for people to use their brains and LEARN. It's all silver spoon fed, fisher price, garbage. I'm clearly jaded!
The old games were smaller, less featured, and had fewer visual enhancements as part of development.
This forced the developer to focus on gameplay, so of course the gameplay was better (for people who prefer gameplay over graphics).
In modern games, it seems that gameplay is just an after-thought tacked on to high resolution high poly graphics, visual effects, voice acting, cut-scenes, and storyline interaction.
