I felt this way about Warframe. The game is well-made and I do like it, but I just can't justify spending that many hours grinding the game out for a frame. It just feels very pay-to-win. Plus, you have to wait in real life hours for things to finish building if I remember correctly.First and foremost, console wars.
But i hate pay to win games. Yes most games you can grind for hours or days to earn the best rewards(sometimes), while someone who wants to spend money gets better gear, players, abilites, etc.
Good point.I am actually thinking of making a topic on the subject - that the industry itself is a wannabe movie industry, the same way so many of 'games journalists' want nothing else than to be hired as 'community managers' by game companies. Basically the importance and praise given to game being simple mechanically but with robust and hyped story e.g. The Last of Us, Death Stranding, Ghost of Tsushima, God of War, etc. Took a lot of balls for IGN to declare Hades GotY 2020.
I hate it when people call games art. Games are not art.
The violence - Simply because it makes it difficult to play games during daytime since I still have some younger kids.
I miss the days when devs could create great games where you could blast down hordes of slimy aliens and spacecrafts instead of just create serial killer documentaries.
To end with positivity, RetroArch on Xbox Series X is pure love! I’m so thankful MS hasn’t removed it yet, there are so many older games perfect for kids, it’s like a safe haven at this point.
Oh, you sweet summer child... This game was the only fighting game I had for a long time on my trusty Mega Drive AND I just had 3-button-controllers!Nothing.
Hate is too strong a feeling which has the potential to really drag down. I find some things around video games annoying (a lot of which have already been mentioned in this thread), but I quickly move on past all that.
I love video games, love playing them and sharing those experiences. Have been doing it for 30+ years. Lots of great memories. Zero regrets.
EDIT: And I mean that, literally. No regrets whatsoever. Not even those 15 minutes I spent playing "Shaq Fu" on SNES. It's as close to a "broken game" as I've ever played, but hell if me and my buddies at the time didn't have a great laugh in the process.
