    I'll repeat again for the little royalty who have to have everything their way NOW.

    What game are you using as a basis of comparison that was not buggy as hell during it's testing phases?
    Path of Exile during alpha.

  • Have you ever decided to not play a game simply because you missed out on an exclusive reward?

    If it involves exclusive content, yes.

    name one....
    Divinity: Original Sin?
    I would normally argue because its not an MMO, but they did make it for like 5 million. But I think they only got a million from KS.

    So points for making it cheap, but not an MMO.
    If you're limiting the genre to MMO then... Albion... Albion is pretty successful so far.
    Albion online wasn't a kickstarter.
    and its not what I would call successful either. but mincing words I suppose.

    As for the list of game the other guy mentioned. I never heard of any of them.

    Also the ORIGINAL statement was "GREAT" mgames.Yet every once in awhile a great game gets made. "Yet every once in awhile a great game gets made."


     So once again I could play the semantics card and double down and claim none of them, not even divinity would qualify there. But of course everyone can have an opinion on 'greatness'. But I dont think the general consensus on Albion would be anything other than 'meh'.

    But the picture in the original post has been all over the internet for awhile now. So really nothing new here.
    The games mentioned are all well known, except for Balrum perhaps. None of them are AAA of course, else they wouldn't have used KS in the first place. Divinity 1 and 2 are actually some of the greatest games made. According to Gamerankings' meta data the second one is actually the best PC game ever made, or second place now. That is as objectively great as it gets.

    The original plan for Divinity: Original sin 2 was to never go through kickstarter.

    There was bit of a reaction to the news and the CEO discussed with the fans on whether they should go for kickstarter or not.

    In the end the positive was bigger than the negative and they went back to kickstarter as explained here.

    For bigger projects kickstarter only cover a small part of the costs and developers have to find the rest of their funds elsewhere.

    It was crowdfunded though. If you think there is a difference then..... I don't know what to tell you. 
    With albion online you got to play the game immediately after you purchased a pack, with ashes of creation you have to wait. If you think there is no difference between playing something immediately compared to waiting to play the game I don't know what to tell you.

  • The night before you loved the game, next day not so much

    For me its often being really interested in a game and once I get to actually play the game my interest is dead. In a few cases I just have to watch the game in action to feel my hype dying.

    With games I enjoyed playing its more gradual, I simply find myself having less and less fun playing until I quit.
