So I would like to have a friendly discussion pertaining to Marvel's Avengers game that is coming out next year. Up until this game was announced gamers around the web screamed that GaaS was a horrible model for video games. Some going so far to say that they wouldn't play a GaaS style game altogether. You also had a lot of people saying that MTX in any form was a bad practice and that they wouldn't spend money on games like that either.
Enter The Avengers which not just says that their game is going to be a GaaS but after E3 is over says that their will be no lootboxes and P2W MTX but their will be extensive MTX. Yet no one seems to care. The same people who hated on MTX and GaaS games in the past are now clamoring at the bit for this game and I don't get it. Sometime's I feel like I am the only person who isn't at all excited for The Avengers Game.
That is also insane because I was raised off Marvel since I was three. Reading the comics, playing the video games, watching the movies, collecting the merch, and even the novels. If anyone should be excited for an Avengers game its me. However, I am not because of the reasons stated above.
Yes, I know their is going to be single player story but on the same end they were coy about how long it would be. That worries me. If the game was single player only fine but is the single player story is going to be all of five hours and be more like a tutorial for the characters in question and then the rest of the game is an Anthem, Division 2, or Warframe style game. They are not really answering these questions which worries me since the game comes out in less then a year.
The discussion I want to have is this. Why is everyone turning a blind eye towards The Avengers? Why does The Avengers get a pass when no other game does? Is it just because of the IP or are people just hypocrites?
