[QUOTE="Omar, post: 6495453]well it's tricky. I have never said I supported EA after BF4 was fixed (you couldn't play this online for months) and even when DICE started giving us free DLC, which is something I demanded because I felt like they owed it to us. I supported DICE for their efforts although I'm sure they didn't have much say in it, EA wanted them to fix things and without EA's approval, they couldn't give us free stuff, and it was probably also EA that rushed DICE to launch BF4 at the time they did, seeing how broken of a mess it was. it took them a year to actually relaunch the game (unofficial but many called it a relaunch once we could actually play online again - which was at least 6 months after next-gen launch)
It's the same thing when it comes to Activision, I will still play COD games if they are good, even though I despise Activision way more than I despise EA.
In the end, if a game is good, I'll play it, doesn't mean I won't speak against the game's publishers/developers. There are times I won't play the game because I just don't support their scheme - Destiny. It's a good game but ruined by the concept of DLC-based gameplay they're going with. Don't care how good it is - i'm glad it's not too good lol that i can't avoid it.
So I still stand by all the flack I gave to EA (note: not DICE
). In fact, ex-COD:MW creators that went to MS to create that contentless pile of crap Titanfall and Bungie selling their souls to Activision, are the only devs that I've ever spoke against.
I think if we took out all publishers today, the cost of lower production gaming would be worth the shit that we have to deal with now where games don't even have content anymore, so it's actually working against us, the point of publishers in the beginning was that games would have more budget thus more content thus more value, that is not the case anymore with many publishers.[/QUOTE]
The last part is the bitter truth I hate from the deep of my heart. There was a kotaku article FinalSin posted a few days ago. It was about destiny, a writers silently cries about how publishers fucks our biggest hobby. It was sad to read.
