After playing an hour of the new No Man’s Sky update, I genuinely got excited again for playing more of the game. However, when I talk to some of my friends they are still bitter and harbor resentment against Hello Games for how badly that 2016 launch went. While I applaud Hello Games for continuing to support the game, I understand where those feelings come from.
This further led me down a thought examination of my former and existing grudges and grievances against game publishers and devs. For example, I am still mad at Square Enix over how they treated Deus Ex and Hitman. I used to be really bitter against Activision for shutting down dedicated server support for Call of Duty games on PC.
However, lately I have been self-examining and asking myself if I need to move on. Not necessarily to forget that it made me bitter or that those feelings weren’t genuine per se, but to not stay bitter. Thankfully now I gotten to the point where I don’t have as many moments like that as I did when I was younger, but I’m still getting better.
So, this leads me to ask y’all this, what grievances (let’s keep it at games) do/did you have and how have you dealt with those grievances? Have you reexamined those past moments of anger/resentment and came out with a different viewpoint now?
