How did the gaming industry get to this point? No man's sky, mass affect, the witcher, Anthem, you name it. While I did enjoy parts of cyberpunk, I think these gaming companies and investors are getting away with literal murder. How has it become somehow acceptable, to release half finished, bug and crash filled, and less than what promoted games? Anthem literally created a fake gameplay reveal for e3, and now they're working on "Anthem next".
"It took years for #TheWitcher 3, so it will take quite long for this game too. I love observing this process." Why is it that we're paying 60+ dollars, making these people millions of dollars, for games that will take "quite long" just to be what gamers are expecting?
Bugs, crashes, cut content, literally unplayable optimization, a totally out of sync story centered around Keanu Reeves to the point that it's lore breaking. The "open world" aspect is literally gone, the story and all the side missions can beat completed in 30-40 hours, there is no post game, life paths are completely pointless, AI are completely brain dead- If you analyze this game at any level deeper than the surface....there's just so many issues.
In my opinion these instances should be considered literal crimes. You don't buy a ferrari, pop open the hood, and do nothing when there's a suburu engine in it. When you sell someone a product, and it does nothing you marketed it to do, you get sued, and usually lose. Why is the gaming industry allowed to be different?
It took years? So what, the lead quest designer is telling us "Don't worry, by 2023 the game will have some of the missing content, and maybe an actually good story" ??
I probably haven't had this much hype, this much anticipation, for such a long time, for any game since destiny 1.
And then they come out with the half assed apology. "we thought the game was running better on console each day" yeah? how exactly? The game literally looks like minecraft on console. Console reviews were also non existent...So what's really going on here?
I'm fed up, can you tell?
