I am so tired of gaming companies thinking they can make games that require your continual purchase of items, unlocks, skills, etc... to be succesful or even to just enjoy it. Let me BUY the game and enjoy it freely. Sure, item malls may be a great way to fund continual development. Fine, give me cosmetics to buy or 10% boosts, not double!! IMO best item mall is Defiance, it is definately not B2W (Buy To Win).
If we players continue to support this method of B2W, we will continue to see more dissapointing games. This is why I am boycotting Neverwinter by not even creating an account. I don't want to even be a POTENTIAL dollar in their eyes. This is why I have not returned to SWTOR in months. And SWTOR is a game which disgusts me on an even deeper lvl. Not only is their a subscription, but then you are encouraged to spend spend spend in the item mall for packs to get items that idiot players price in the millions (credits). If I am a subscriber, why should I be buying item mall items? Is $15 dollars a month no longer enough for access to obtain everythihng in the game? Because I remember when $8 dollars a month was.
I am gladly willing to spend almost $200 a year (excluding any expansions) on a video game, how is that enough for you stingy publishers? And comment as you will, but don't try to answer my final questions. It simply cannot be resonably answered.
If I want a world in which people can purchase success and power with cash, I'll play Real Life. Keep Virtual Worlds Virtual!
