Fuck I laughed and spilled my coffee because of this comment.

[–] thatguyiam 0 points 6 points (+6|-0) ago  (edited ago)

I bought all battlefield games because frostbyte is awesome. I bought battlefront 1. I dont buy sports because i aint into it. But look around. People are boycotting NFL en masse. EA thinks they wont boycott their fucked company?

I will never again buy another EA product, and i will make sure my kids won't either. EA are gay and greedy fucks.

edit: EA can jist go ahead and sell ther frostbyte engine to some uncucked eastern developer now. Its over.

/gaymers must be upset over this

[–] thatguyiam 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago 

There are gamers and there are gaymers.

Which one ARE you?

[–] KingofKong 1 points 26 points (+27|-1) ago 

Its still going to sell millions and EA is going to make a shit ton of money. Barely anybody will boycott and the loot box practice will continue because they've finally found something more profitable than on disc dlc and microtransactions (but they will continue to include those as well). This is how gaming is now.

This is how "triple A" gaming is now. Look elsewhere if you want something that isn't a dopamine treadmill designed to drain your wallet. We're in a golden age of indie and small studio games. EA, Bioware and Ubisoft could disappear tomorrow and gaming would be no poorer for it.

I haven't played any decent indie games in forever; most seem half-baked. But I've also stopped buying any AAA games (excluding the Witcher) and I think there's more like me. Eventually game devs might figure this shit out and make decent games again.

Mark my words, 100 years from now, "normal" white men would mostly play games made in non-politically correct libtard nations.

It's not just Japanese devs getting more and more "western" market share, these days you even have white men buying "made in china" games through steam and it's not even western culture or whatever. Also politically wrong european country would churn more and more games at it will be much more appealing to normal men because they are good old games adhering to traditional culture.

Because at this rate, RPG made by the "progressive west" in the future wouldn't allow you to select straight male as a main character, and all the heroines are all fat and ugly, with darker than black skin, and were former men.

Except for the fact that they own every major IP that there is and they will never give them up. I agree that some smaller studios are putting out some quality stuff. Larian recently released Divinity: Original Sin 2 which is one of the best RPGs ever made. Even still, it will never make even half as much as the next shitty Mass Effect.

And anything indie that's even remotely successful will have EA and Activision throwing their wallets at it to acquire it so they can destroy it.

I have to give credit to whoever came up with the loot box system though. Its so terribly evil and just unimaginabley profitable.

[–] thatguyiam 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

Sure... NFL profits aint down either.

It's the kids. Damn kids.

[–] Womb_Raider 1 points 1 points (+2|-1) ago 

This happened because a few years ago Activision tried to raise their COD price to $80 or something along those lines. Gamers were furious, it was looking like they might actually band together and boycott. They abandoned the idea and went for cosmetic purchases afaik.

[–] DrWebinstein 0 points 8 points (+8|-0) ago 

Believe it or not, but EA got the most downvotes in Reddit history over this ! But yes unsuspecting grandparents will gobble this game up for their grandkids and the machine will move forward. I remember back when Blizzard first introduced a flying sparkly mount for cash. No in game upgrade other than visual. There was an uproar, but the writing was on the wall. People paid the sub, and the cash shop opened.

what has the video game industry and its SJW freaks done now? ELi5... btw don't play much games these days so i'm out of this gamer loop

[–] Thrus2 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

General ass hattery and a massive push for micro-transactions, I think it was Ubisoft but may have the wrong company, that just made more in a quarter/year? in micro-transactions then in game sales. A great deal of day one DLC. There has also been a debate going on between gaming and Europe? on weather loot boxes are gambling or not, most of the gamers here don't see the discussion it is, especially when they sell the keys for real money.

EA is gay as they come from a hiring perspective. The only thing they haven't hired yet is furries and I'm sure that is coming.

[–] rndmvar 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago 

Furry communities have a propensity for tearing themselves apart with drama. Channers usually lends a hand in the unmaking. This would also be more entertaining than the HWNDU series. Plus it would have a major game industry and stock market impact. Which I think all of the chans would view as an achievement trophy that would rise above most. Besides, at this point who still has any love for EA? It would be a modern day cultural coup.

[–] DependasaurusRex 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

At this point, it would lilely be an improvement as horrible as it is.

[–] Slagiatt 0 points 5 points (+5|-0) ago 

Ultima online was rad though....

[–] NottaTrollNopeNope 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

It all went to shit with T2A. And that was before EA bought out Origin Systems.

With that said I still play on some public shards to this day.

Christ its still going?
