The first time DLC was introduced to me, it was in Halo 3 and Modern warfare 2. These two games were cemented into into their communities as some of the best in the series. It is funny how these two games contributed to one of things that somewhat plague gaming today.
DLC and Microtransactions are now apart of gaming. We have to accept it now because at this point, they are not going anywhere. We do not have to accept the way they are implemented.
Gaming as a whole has been invaded by people who do not care about it as a medium. It has become noticable, because microtransactions have become so common and awfully implemented that it ruins entire game modes.
Not only in that aspect but in the community as well. There are YouTubers that just do not care about the community. This would not be a problem if now they did not represent a whole community. These people are not community leaders in the most, but they are famous. These are the people that many of these companies go to help with their games which can be bad. Not all of there opinions can useful because many of them have not played some of the games. Also they have to be honest with people who have flown them out to play a game early before anyone else. That is a pretty good luxury.
We as Gamers have become accepting of the gaming publishers, companies, and the people that represent us as a whole. There are people who generally care in this business but there are a lot of people who don’t. These past few years we have been getting hustled by everyone and no more.
No more half finished games, terrible day one DLC, microtransactions to get ahead, and no more awful practices from any gaming company.
Also stop uploading gamplay videos every day and try and do something creative. Its too many people making lets play and nothing else. YouTube gamers literraly can upload a whole twitch stream, chop it up,release in parts and call it a let’s play.
Lets vote with our walets and speak out.
