It's already happening with steam backing down from censorship and allowing everything

I think we've been speaking with our dollars; I mean EA lost the Star Wars franchise because of what they tried to pull. But I agree they try to call us racist and other bs like with gamergate. But hasn't that historically accurate rpg throughout Europe that got dogged for not being inclusive just dominated sales?

Centralized organizations can be beheaded (leadership character assassination) and corrupted (look at occupy wall street's latest tweets). Decentralized protests can't easily be infiltrated and taken over.

Doesn't seem like they are backing down, they used good PR to calm both sides, they still say that they will not allow games that "troll" people, whatever that means. And that's the problem right there. Also, stop supporting Steam, it's DRM a shitty practice that fucks us over.

They didn't back down from anything, they just told everyone they would sometime in the not specified future.

There are literally thousands of good games from the last 25 years that I just never got the time to play. I have a stack of 20 to 30 unopened games that I haven't played yet. Really good ones too. I can hold out. Can they?

I'd like to see more people go to retro gaming and not buy any new games. Let the system fall and crumble.

I wanted to buy a ps4 to play the new doom. Im holding against the impulses though.

Fuck yes- with source codes trickling out, retro games have never looked better or more appealing.

Been spending a lot of time with OpenRA- a heavily modded form of Command and Conquer: Red Alert. It's amazing what modders can do- OpenRA has a modern UI, streamlined controls and graphics, new features, etc.. And it's fucking FREE (assuming you own the original title). Can't beat that.

I'm excited to see what can be done with Diablo 1. I don't give half a fuck about Fallout '76 or Battlefield: Handicapped Company.

Play old games, they are infinitely better than the majority of the new releases today.

Looking at my steam library I could probably go for several years without buying games and just playing all the games I got as part of compilations from humble bundle.

I could easily weather a temporary collapse of the gaming industry and become a retro gamer while new companies rebuild the industry from the ashes.

I haven't even looked at new games after EA killed BF2 servers and turned games into "service' rater than product.I went back to my old hobbies.I know few guys that did just that for similar reasons.

Gaming also seems to be more boring now, or possibly I've just had a taste of much better things and retreating to video games just doesn't seem appropriate anymore.

Skyrim was the last game Ive spent any significant portion of time on. Tried Fallout 4 but it was just empty-ish like it couldnt captivate me outside of the rpg structured format.

Same with movies... Its moving more to large tentpole games and movies. Why make 5 marginal successful games when you can make 1 giant runaway hit. But... To ensure that you have to play nice and cater to more special interest groups.

Saw a video someone did of Star Wars games. We went from 2-3 per year with big hits every few years to 1 game every few years and those and up being lukewarm or bombs.

Took you long enough. They've been dumbing gaming down since forever. It used to be impossible to even play games without reading the manual to figure out how to play the game.

I'll just play old games and watch old movies. Anything still good after a decade will always be good.

A decade isn't enough. It needs to prevail for about three to four decades. After that it will be timeless. Unless, of course, it becomes completely outdated and only enjoyed for historical significance. It's similar to cancer. You never know if the next year will be it.

I feel like the rise of SJWism in gaming is due to a few things. A lot of gaming stopped being about exercising intellect and focused on narrative, and I think once gaming found its way into the mainstream (which was basically inevitable since Millennials who grew up with games are now moving into all kinds of senior positions in entertainment), and in conjunction with casual console gaming, politically correct liberal arts graduates saw gaming as a legitimate avenue for their careers and found their way into the creative departments of major game developers. Here they have executive power to decide on what political messages a game will deliver. These kinds of people value artistic expression above all else, including the challenging aspects of games - this much is fucking clear with the epidemic of narrative driven titles like Uncharted and The Last of Us that are not hard to complete and in some cases, impossible to fail, like Layers of Fear. Anyone else notice the number of cuck horror games where you’re a defenseless pussy with a camera and you spend the game running and hiding? More symptoms of a liberal infestation. They get rave reviews but what value are reviews when the critics are people who sometimes can’t even complete the first level of a sidescroller and, in all likelihood, probably came from similar circumstances as these SJW devs. Games are more film-like than ever and I think it’s fucking shit.

Another good example is tomb raider series. Old ones are about thinking and the last one is about shooting but not solving puzzles.

Damn right. The slippery slope scenario fits this perfectly. 10 ish years ago we shat on filthy casuals fucking up the flow and quality of the games. Forward to now and it was evolved into leftist bullshittery. In addition to many of them clamoring for the usual slew of leftist ideology to be crammed down our throats, there has also been a huge push to create "non-games" characterized by poorly-written, terribly-paced, walking simulators like "Where the water tastes like wine." Never played it? No one has, the game almost didnt even sell which is fantastic because it encompasses the direction of gaming SJWs are pushing for.

Once sales start lacking the (((game dev's))) will start calling the gaming community "TOXIC". Just you wait and see

Well, for comparison....I look at the comic book industry. The number of sales units sold in comics is lower than at other time in history. Are the SJWs that control Marvel, DC, IDW, and Image getting the message....that people don't want their neo-Marxist bullshit?

NO.

And they won't get the message in the gaming industry either. SJWs always double down, and they don't really care about making sales. The only thing that matters to them is destroying a traditional white male space.

It doesn't matter what the sales numbers are. The jews push propaganda even at a loss. Its why porn is free. But it will speak volumes if no one is buying it. The smaller studios will go under. We will go back to making our own games. REVERSE WOLFENSTEIN
