Unpopular opinion: I do see the entertainment value of these games but I can only play them for a few matches at a time (even with friends) before getting bored.
@TheyCallMeTaterSalad, I also can only play a few matches at a time, but for a different reason. "Hey that guy shot me through the fvcking wall!" *throws controller*
@PsychedelicCow, That and the thought of companies bringing it to their games makes my head itch. "Hey guys we're putting battle Royale in our game!" oh really how about you add a shotgun with a Kurt cobain attachment, you fvcks.
@TheyCallMeTaterSalad, yeah, I hate companies just jumping on the BR bandwagon when their games already have a strong base and following. Including battle royale ends up taking their time that could be spent improving their base game, or in some cases finishing their game.
@PsychedelicCow, As soon as rockstar added battle royale to GTA along with all the other bullshjt in the multiplayer I'm almost convinced Rdr2 will be a fvcking mess and with time will only grow to be a sub par grindfest where you can buy money. And a majority of people critical of it will buy, advertise, and consistently play/stream the game. The gaming community and the developers are now happy with subpar trash and yes I'm bitter about my hobby being ruined lol.
@TheyCallMeTaterSalad, I think the gaming community that is streaming these games is only happy about it because they're getting paid, and they know what they're playing is popular so the risk of not getting enough attention is minimal. And I know where you're coming from, I'm a battlefield player but I don't like where they're going with it. If BF5 doesn't turn out well, I'll probably just play the older games that were good.
@PsychedelicCow, The streaming community imo is 10x worse than developers ever could be. Sure they can add gun skins and crates to a game but only a true egotistical money hungry asshole can market gambling sites to their child audiences so they can be rich and yet come away from it with a slap on the wrist and a few memes about them. Also still having a successful career. Any decent person in the gaming community doesn't become popular anymore. Only the dyed hair fake excitement and personality twats get famous and not the guy who loves gaming and cares about what happens to the community. It's a bunch of rich guys who sit around counting money surrounded by heaping piles of burning dog shjt.
@TheyCallMeTaterSalad, fake people and microtransactions are pretty much the gaming industry these days, when the most popular people are just talentless screamers and white knight bait and not having microtransactions is a selling point for your game you know something is fked up
@Spess mehrens, And the people who then turn a profit on advertising/making videos about items you can get through them are equally as bad if not worse. Looking at you 99% of Cod YouTubers.
@TheyCallMeTaterSalad, One of the many reasons I watch shroud. He doesn’t constantly advertise for twitch prime subs, doesn’t overreact and when he does it’s usually for a joke then he apologizes for yelling into the mic. He just kinda chills and does whatever he wants.
@TheyCallMeTaterSalad, remember when imersive stories were popular....
@JSLtheNerd, Even simple little details that make a better experience are few and far between
@TheyCallMeTaterSalad, seems like you need to get more W's
@TheyCallMeTaterSalad, my friends like playing pubg a lot. I on the other hand pull up random trivia questions while we play and run my own game show because I find that more entertaining than playing. Also whenever someone gets a question wrong I make them fire a bullet to try and give away our position. If they don’t fire I shoot them.
@PsychedelicCow, if Mortal Kombat had a battle royal I’d be sooo happy
@TheyCallMeTaterSalad, I really enjoy fortnite, but I don't get a lot of time to play. It's all about preference.
@TheyCallMeTaterSalad, yep my dudes pester me all the time about fortnight and how I should just "keep playing"
