Simple question, do you think a lot of games especially sequels now suck or do you think its just nostalgia? I will simply say a lot of games released these days do suck and are done in lazy manners and here's some reasons why. #1 Updates and patches. Before internet and gaming systems were one in the same game developers needed to do the testing of games for themselves knowing if they released a broken game it would stay that way. Not counting a few re-releases a great amount of games back in the day were released with little to no bugs. Now? With updates and betas and such we are now the guinea pigs. We are expected to fix developer problems and why wouldn't they expect us to? Why pay someone thousands to test the games when you can release it and have fans tell you of all the problems, release a patch and you are done? #2 Sequels A lot of sequels these days just bank off of the long standing franchises. Doesn't matter if you're out of ideas if you already have a core audience that buys whatever you release just for the name you will make your money no matter what. A lot of developers have figured this out a long time ago even back in the day. #3 DLCs and Mods I think DLC destroyed a lot of good games. There are more than a couple games I can name that would completely suck without DLCs and/or mods. To me it just shows how much they love your money and don't care about your loyalty. Once again back in the day any "dlc" content would be included and you were not expected to pay more than the usual $50 game price to have a great game. Now you are expected with some games to spend upward of $150 just to have a good game. Sigh. Post opinions and such.
