The discussion was about how these subscription services affect the industry and the quality of future AAA games. Not if companies can make money with monthly subscription fees.
If anything, I'm optimistic that if any thing subscription services will lead to more mid-budget, shorter length games which I'd love. I'd like a lot more things like Hellblade and A Plague Tale than huge, super long AAA things like AC Odyssey that aren't nearly compelling enough to me personally for the amount of time they require to complete.
If it doesn't, no skin off my nose. I'm not obsessed with gaming and don't even know that I'd list it as my favorite hobby anymore. If I wasn't enjoying it any more, that's just more time and money for other things I enjoy and life goes on. Few things phase me anymore, especially minor things in life like media consumption hobbies. Why am I here given that? Who knows, been asking myself why I signed up when I haven't bothered with forums in years. Mostly just being down with a stomach bug currently and killing time while it goes away and doing a lot of posting from the toilet!
