Hey everyone so I was just thinking of the current state of the gaming industry and to be honest I'm not excited about it. In a world FULL of Microtransactions, Battle Passes and just the games that are out now and recently. Most games seem rushed, not fully finished and quite honestly lacking in every aspect. It's been awhile since I've been excited about a game coming out and do not even get me started about the Prices of games being released for the amount of content they have. I hope it gets better but honestly it doesn't look bright in the future.

I have 1 rule, If a game shows me a battle pass as soon as i open it, i drop it. Not to say every game is bad that has a Battlepass, i'm just juggling way too many at the moment and i don't want to feel obligated to grind it just in fear of missing out. That's why i don't like gaming nowadays.

But some games are great, I think we just focus too much on Multiplayer games which all the MTX lives. If you play games like Yakuza and Monster hunter and even older games like Witcher 3 are still amazing games.

Even indie games are really great nowadays, you got games like Undertale/Deltarune, and even a new one coming out soon, Bomb Rush Cyberfunk (pretty much a ground-up Jet set Radio Future with the same composer)

Kinda agree with the battle pass thing. One thing I hate about it is that it counts so much on the "fear on missing out" (FOMO) thing so as a gamer, you are shoehorned to play the game all the time. If you are shoehorned to play it all the time, there's an underlying principle that since you're playing a lot, anyway, buying the premium version of the battle pass makes your time worth it. I know it's optional, but it's a diluted experience because you will supposedly miss out on optional items.

Not wrong. Just not something I am ok with preferentially.

As for microtransactions, I think they're no longer as prevalent. Ever since EA was called out on this, we've seen a resurgence of quality games with genuine longevity like Elden Ring, Monster Hunter Rise, Witcher 3, even Cyberpunk 2077 that initially fumbled is technically brimming with content. And yes I think the quoted poster and I play similar games hehe. Some.
