I’m in a Discord with some old friends from high school who often express sentiments close to the “lazy devs” myth, particularly about PUBG.
Whenever they complain about the (legitimate) hacker problem, or physics issues, or even the release of a new map (because “why would devs work on new content if the game doesn’t work???”), all I can do is picture the people at PUBG Corp frantically working to patch their suddenly successful game to the best of their ability.
I know this conversation/argument is probably not worth having but…
Can (and how can) I convince them that this is likely untrue?
Why do I feel this weird loyalty toward PUBG Corp? Is it a right-wing bow to industry leaders? Or a left-wing recognition of my fellow laborer (though I do not work in games)?
Is this topic interesting?
Why am I like this?
Thank you for any and all responses, dear friends.
