  • I hate you EA

    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.
    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?

    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. 
    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.

    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.
    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.

    Lol .. a video game company is not important enough for me to hate it.

    It is a free world. They can make any games that want to, and I can decide whether to buy or not.

    And it is silly to believe that a large company with so many products has no good games. Titanfall 2 is a good game. Going back earlier, the first Dead Space is a good game. 

    I am not going to skip good (to me) games just because they are made by EA. 
  • If all mmo's were diffacult, would you enjoy them more ?

    We are talking about games here. Games are for some quick fun. If i want real challenges, i go solve work related technical problems.

    The best pve games give the illusion of challenges, not real ones. 

  • I hate loot boxes and so does Francis.

    Why is this a problem? It is a free world. Just don't buy them. 
  • Okay WTF is a MMO? Really?

    Who even cares at this point. 
    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.

    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.  
    hehe .. i highly doubt developers care about "powers to destroy in forums" or they control what games are classified as.

    Look at the huge debate on whether Destiny 2 is a MMO .. Bungie would care less and they will be make tons of money either way. Only some here may care. Most gamers will just play the game.
