I noticed this tweet by Jim Sterling: https://twitter.com/JimSterling/status/1047888614045224962
Holy shit the in-game store for AC: Odyssey is unbelievable. SO much content portioned off for microtransactions. It’s overwhelming.
This is a game that people are playing for 40 - 60 hours and yet the existence alone of more for-pay content is inherently bad?
There is zero argument here to warrant the claim that content is portioned off.
Not “the real ending costs extra” or “the best weapons are dlc” etc.
Just: “You can buy more game, and that means you’re getting cheated”.
Why is it only in games that this is “unacceptable”?
Are people mad that they’re not getting the next George RR Martin book for free, because they paid for the first one?
How about Peter Jackson shooting all three LOTR movies at once, should you only pay for one movie ticket then?
When Jim Sterling walks into a supermarket, is everything he isn’t buying “portioned off”?
