10 Video Game Trends That NEED TO DIE
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gqzy5cuTXq4

I agree with most of the things mentioned in this video..

we gamers have a voice and we can be pretty loud-- also speak with your wallet as well


COD IW and legacy edition already dropped down in price already.. at first i thought it was because of the holiday.. but nope.. it's still around the same price even today 1/4/2017


honestly, i'm not a fan of open world games either.. it's fun yes.. but for a short time

since if every game is an open world game and you need to run/ride/drive/ from one end of the map to another to continue on the story.. etc.. games after games it can feel like a chore

a good example is to play 3-4 open world games right after each other..

fast travel is a must if you are going to create more and more open world games..

i'm not a fan of spending 5-ish minutes to get from point A to point B so i can complete a side/main mission of a game.

If you make every game like dark cloud.

Das all you need to do.

Call of Duty needs to die off, it's a pathetic joke

COD ID sold enough copies.. but not as well as they expected it would be..

the stand alone game is around $35 now.. and the legacy edition is around $55.. with GCU then it's 20% cheaper as well..

they tend to keep the price of the games at full price for a long time.. so seeing it dropped to $35 ($28 GCU) after 2 months is a good sign..

Ubisoft and Activision probably got the message now.... soon or later gamers will realize it's the same game repackaged with a $60 price tag every year....

of course the critics who got the games for free (might also be paid for the reviews.. who knows) will praise the game.. while the gamers who are putting down $60+ tax will not be happy when it's the same stuff they spent countless hours on 1 year ago.. over and over again..

1. Call of Duty annual releases/milking
2. Day one DLC/season passes

Big empty open world made open world just to check that box for the marketing blurb.
Watched Sterlings video on it and pretty much agree.

Go back to CoD Big Red One, when they had story and before they milked the franchise for money, except that won't happen now
