It’s kind of disgusting.
I’m very close to being finished with this industry. There is more focus on remasters and micro transactions than on exploring new ground.
And I’d rather hurry and exit before I see Froms next game come out, complete with no climbing or jumping over barriers that I could step over in RL.
Same old mechanics, new skin.
Besides, I have several years still before a proper TES games will come out. And this industry is getting worse every year.
A lot of this is why I'm a big fan of independent games and smaller studios. Some of the most amazing gaming experiences I've had in the last decade were had at insane pricepoints because the smaller devs take a lot of cool chances.
Let’s see. Starting with -
Dust - An Elysian Tale
Salt and Sanctuary
.. and a slew of others that I can’t think of right now. Most of those cost from 15$-20$ and I actually go back to a lot of them for another go fairly often. And ENJOY it!
Compared to all the AAA titles that I’ve bought in the last few years that barely keep me interested for a month, yet cost me 50-60$ and throw DLC and micros at me (which yes, it’s my choice, but the practice is worth mentioning)
Granted there are a few gems in there. Soulsborne, Mordheim, X-Com 2, Nioh, MHW.
One of the reason I will probably keep my PS4 is because I do really love and appreciate what some of these small dev teams pull off. Unfortunately it does led me to have higher expectations for some indie games that turn out being pretty poor. But thats the gamble.
In the end, I’m just ranting because I know good and well I’ll pick up DSR. Selling my PS4 would be the only way to avoid it...
armed with wings is pretty good.
