    I do not wish losing job to anyone, but if you are unable to deliver quality product as you describe it to your customers, your company should go under as there is no place on the market for half arsed products.

    There sure will always be that tiny niche group enjoying whatever product, but that's not how making money works and gaming is no longer about making games and then making money of them if they turn out good, but about making as much money, while spending as little as possible in shortest time span possible and it happens to work for some games.

    Remember the age of early access?
    That trend is dying rapidly now, because players are fed up of being fed literal horse shit with each new early access title and demand actual working and finished games on release AND that release to happen.

    Same thing with life service games, where AAA companies think they can shove shit down out throats with quickly put up money maker and then patch it up to a workable state after scrapping half the features or just skipping major systems and mechanics in the first place (looking at you, ubisoft and literally every single game you made past 10 years).

    Yeah man the whole war on game gambling is finally starting as well.
    And the Coalition of gambling experts from the EU And Washington are also looking into the effects of micro transactions and other money milking ploys and such.
    Consumer protection and all.
    We can only hope they will ban this shit.
    Take 4th nite.. its not even out of open beta and its already having e-sports competitions its on its 5 the season.
    Its kinda stupid.

    Other Industry's wished they had so much freedom in milking folk.

    Ah, come to germany and go into car industry. Government-protected bullshittery, knock yourself out. :D
    (And a lot of other industries, too, come to think of it...some major corruption over here.)

    Have you ever heard of this Apple company?
    Any fashin related one?
    At my first job, I was able to cut holes in camera to get access to hidden ports, which were there pre-build but covered and another camera model with them opened was sold for much higher price. I think it was Sony camera at a time, can be wrong though as it was over a decade ago.

    Every single industry that can milks people as much as possible as the gov regulations allow.
    That is literally how every industry maybe except military oriented ones operates in USA for example, using cheap tricks, materials, ingredients, misleading you with names on labels of products and lists of ingredients.

    All those industry's you mentioned have already been regulated.. unlike the gaming industry.

    Not my business you aren't happy with how they are regulated.

    Just be happy Vee Dub doesn't make you pay a season pass for your tires.

    And Mercedes isn't peddling random car upgrade kits to your 6 year old.

    Or that Lucky Strike can't hold a smoke beta cigarette competition where the winners win a prize pool of 10.000 and a school scholarship just to promote smoking under teenagers to get them hooked on their brand.

    Or that Ikea is asking you money for a kitchen they wanna make and when they done they send you a shoe stand and say:
    Yeah well development kinda ..
    You know....
    It was hard man...‍
    But you can also give us money for this cool bike we might or might not build ever as well !!<--??

    do you own a car? those things cost a fortune to maintain. get them to service every year, pay for insurance etc. I´m glad I dont have one anymore. saves me a lot of money.
  7. Catnium Catnium Well-Known Member

    Service every year ?
    Who told you that ?

    Cars need a service job every few years .. not every year.
    Check your car manual it's usually around every 100.000 km..
    your talking about the yearly road safety check I bet.

    that's there because idiots exist.
    Idiots that wont fix a broken vehicle and actually kill innocent bystanders because they could not be arsed to change a few tires that were worn down.

    Sure it costs money to maintain..
    but that's because a car is real.. and it subject to wear and tear.

    A virtual car in a racing game isn't.

    people love socialism because of 2 words "free stuff"

    and i have 12 cars now so i buy a car shop to fix my cars for free
