I want video game companies to fail...

Quite honestly I honestly want them to fail, they need to.

Remember when Microsoft did so well with the XBOX 360 and then they thought they could simply ride the success without any effort and put anti-customer practices and then it became a shit show for Sony to just kick the Xbox brand in the teeth with one of the most upvoted videos.


Then Microsoft got their act together and now reversing course. Xbox now has better backward compatible titles than Sony. You can use your Xbox One accessories with Series X, etc. Cross saves are easier than PS5. They sare still last place, but they are actually taking feedback (to some degree) in comparison. Thought the U.I still looks like ass.

Now motherfucking Sony is being arrogant now with all the censorship bs, hell its censorship si even worse than Nintendo's. Fuck I played PS5 for the first time and enjoyed the DualSense controller but it took me 30 min and google searching on how to turn off the system. Holy fuck that is some bad intuitive design, you would think pressing on the PS button and holding it would give the option, nope.

Nintendo failed with the Wii U and they got back up with the Nintendo Switch, now Nintendo is being stagnant with their Switch OLED, the system still runs like ass, it takes me like 3-4 min to boot fucking Animal Crossing New Horizons, playing that game is now painful. I'm so used to instant-on with fast boot times for Series X that Switch feels like playing Pokemon Diamond and Pearl and each HP is relative to 1 frame and it takes too damn long for their HP to go down (people who played these games would get the reference).

In short. I want all these companies to fucking fail, they need a fire lit under their asses so they can constantly try rather than be mother fucking stagnant.
Then you have corporate ass hats move in trying to take control and regress gaming.

EA needed to fail so we can get rid of fucking loot boxes out of our games, it needed that media attention.
Now loot boxes are gone companies are still doing that shady buy money for gems or credits and have that convert to skin purchases so games forget about the actual value spent and FOMO.
More shady practices with FOMO on skins.

Remember when EA killed Dead Space franchise with microtransactions in a single-player game, remember when they tried that shit with Shadow of Mordor.

Fuck I want all of these companies to fail so they can have their fucking heads screwed up straight.
It's like these corporations have their heads far up their asses they can't hear.
But these corporations are all about the money.

The food industry is like this, they put food that is pretty unhealthy, I'm just hoping some CEO's kid dies from the food their company ingests so they can actually learn something.

Bad things need to happen for people to actually learn. It is a necessary evil.

This is why I want video game companies to fail.

Let Ubisoft fail because of their shitty copied and pasted games that won't have traction.
Let EA fail so they can make better single-player games.
Let Xbox fail so we can get better products and services.
Let Nintendo fail again so we don't get the repeat Wii U.

They need to fail, they have to.

Competition is good and healthy and it's better for the consumer.

I paid good money for this Dynex!
Kind of a negative way to look at it, though I can't say I'm particularly happy with any of the current platforms so... I guess I get it.
 
I'm not reading all that shit.

Skimmed it and saw something about how people complained at EA about loot boxes and they removed them.

I don’t want them to fail because we never know if they’ll end up as Commodore 😢
I just hope everyone would realize that good enough isn’t actually enough. Always try your best at all times and things will work out great.
 

Fare thee well

I was having this discussion with my gf earlier. It seems the bloated whale corpses of companies, that got lazy and haven't really innovated in years, stick around far longer than they should. Innovation is always driven by upstart companies. Even if 95%+ of upstarts fail, the ones that succeed innovate in ways that really drive things. Capitalism fails when monopolies take hold and starve innovation. We should hasten their end faster as more educated consumers.

biggest complaint is many still refuse to make attractive female chars, though recently she will punish them is having some success for just focus on making better looking female chars, hopefully this will encourage AAA devs to include them in character creation again. ALso I hope modding tools are back big time, I rather the paid dlc to be just mod tools, I'll be fine with it.

I just want Sony to go back to PS2 philosophy, supporting both western and Japanese first party.

Currently Sony focusing too much western market.

It really explains a lot about you OP if it took you that much time and effort to find the off button in the PS5 menu...

Anyway, as a fresh owner of a brand new PS5 I find most of these complaints a bit of a stretch. The backwards compatibility has been working great for me so far and I'm extremely pleased with it, considering that I took a bigger generational leap and went from a regular PS4 straight to PS5.

The only thing that kinda grinds my gears is the practice of charging for a PS5 version of a PS4 game, sometimes even by making you buy the whole game again instead of just token upgrade. But that's mostly on the greedy publishers like Activision. Most other publishers give these upgrades completely free.

Nice rant, I'm with you.
And you guys know what? We only have to not fall for their promises and trailers and stop buying their stuff.
I honestly don't know when I bought my last *new* Ubisoft or EA game in. I don't want to support these companies and if that means and if that means I have to do without, then I do without.

It took me a grand total of 5 seconds to find it the first time around.

Besides, this basically amounts to Sony rearranging some settings in the new UI and you act as if they murdered your family. Chill out, you and other people like you will get used to it eventually, I'm sure.

I agree except nintendo never got back up. The switch is worse than the Wiiu and 3ds in every way from the controllers, the price, the games (pokemon sword fucking sucks), the online, and the virtual console. They tried to reinvent the wheel and just made a shittier wheel instead of improving upon what they made already. Worst company in gaming, but they get defended because of one mediocre zelda game released 4 years ago.

TL;DR
A competitive market works. In other news the sky is still blue. More at 10.

Yet you play Animal Crossing, the definition of lazy, copy and pasted low effort cash grab in the industry. How are those updates? Updates to a game that sold 30 million copies and Nintendo can't be fucking bothered to support it. Meanwhile, Ubisoft, who you think needs to fail, provides regular updates to their games for free. Games that sell a hell of a lot less than Animal Crossing and had 100x more production value and content.
 
Like it or not the market works. There's plenty of great stuff out there, even from the companies you wish to fail.

Also, I don't want these companies to fail. That's nice being a disgruntled gamer, but real people work at these jobs to pay their mortgage.

To be fair this describes 99% of the games on the switch, so what choice is there?

With enough time, all companies will fail, all star light in the universe will be extinguished, and there will finally be quiet.

So if a company makes a mistake they should fail completely?

I like the fact they figure out what doesn't work and find something that does.
