Well, you can't claim you know nothing about titanfall 2 because i am telling you now that it got high scores on metacritics. Unless you develop amnesia in the next 5 seconds, at least you are potentially gimping your own fun. Now of course you are free to give them the finger when gimping your own fun. No one says you cannot gimp your own fun. But putting your head in the sand does not magically change the facts.SedrynTyros said:I don't know if I like Titanfall 2 ... because I'll never again buy a game that EA publishes, nor will I play them. See how that works? Nothing is gimped; I'm just reserving my time and money for publishers who aren't, figuratively speaking, serial rapists like EA. Since those other publishers still make good games, I still get to have fun.nariusseldon said:If you like titanfall 2, and you skip it, by definition, you *are* gimping your own fun. There is no titanfall 2 clones, is there?SedrynTyros said:I won't gimp my own fun, I'll look elsewhere for it because EA doesn't deserve my business and it doesn't deserve yours either. They've destroyed far more potential entertainment then they've created and so I will not support them in any way, shape or form. That they still manage to shit out a good game now and then isn't near good enough for me to overlook all the good they've destroyed with their terrible business practices.
No one "deserves" anything in a free market. It is just a transaction. EA gave me a game i like. I gave them my money. So what if they destroyed potential entertainment? If they stop making games i like, i go somewhere. It is not like they don't know that.
And I understand what you mean by free market. I'm free to give EA the finger because I don't like them, and so I do.
hehe .. i highly doubt developers care about "powers to destroy in forums" or they control what games are classified as.DeVoDeVo said:The people that loooove MMOs care because once a game is labeled as an "MMO", they have the power to dictate to the developers what they feel should be in the game e.g. endless gear grind, end game dungeons and raids, don't cater to solo. If the developers does not concede to their wishes, the game will be destroyed in forums and blogs.Panther2103 said:Who even cares at this point.
Developers want to move away from the MMO label so they they can have the power to shape the game as they want.
By not labeling the game as an MMO, developers effectively removed the power from the "it's an MMO" crowd.
