  • Instead of throwing shade at people who made reasonable purchase decisions with their hard earned money, how about some gratitude for the people who did support the game, even those who bought the game on sale? Customers didn't reject a Days Gone sequel, Sony did.

    • @I Troll As A Hobby Ok, and why? Is there a reason why you think nobody read my comment? Yours is the only one after mine, so it's not like there's a way to know how many people read it. Not to mention, I don't care who read it or who didn't so why are you telling me this? You have a problem with me or my comments or something? Why try to belittle me on this comment thread, like you know something I don't? Honestly, I don't care if you didn't bother to read the while thing. It might've been a tl;dr comment, but it doesn't matter anyway what you think or what anyone else thinks about it. I don't even care if you read through this whole reply, you probably won't, so whatever. Whatever you were trying to do, you failed! 🤷‍♂️

  • My thoughts on this are if as consumers, We weren't conditioned over the last 16 or so years to see the initial release as an incomplete product, we as the consumer wouldn't HAVE to be do damn cautious of every game purchase we make. It also doesn't help that the GameStop economy killed game trade-ins and the overall value of our product, while only raising prices, so if you want to blame someone other than yourself, there you go.

  • Sony is most interested in games that make the most money and generate the most interest... shocking... 🤔 more interestingly, what would you expect? They’re not running an art platform, they’re there to make products and sell units for profit Ps: quit launching broken games, we don’t buy games at launch full price cuz it takes 6 months for you to fix it and by then everyone knows it’s broken and are only gonna be interested in it when it’s in the bargain bin... (looking at you cyber punk)

  • That mentality is bullshit, cause many games have gotten a second lease on life when they've been discounted or ported to other platforms at a value price. In this day and age of digital distribution and word-of-mouth being more effective than any amount of advertising, many games come onto their own months or even years after release. For example, Dragon's Dogma was not a hit when it came out, being unfairly and inaccurately called a Dark Souls clone, but when it was later released on Steam and PS4, the game got a MASSIVE boost in sales and acclaim, actually becoming Capcom's best-selling Steam release for a time, and if the Capcom upcoming releases leak is legit, the sequel is in development.

  • This dev dude is just a douche. Days Gone wasn't even that good. It was generic and mediocre. Noah Caldwell Gervais's review pointed that out pretty dang clearly. Sucks that this studio is fucked by Sony but c'mon, there isn't much of a fanbase and it didn't make much money, so what did the guy expect? They made the most generic thing they could possibly make. Not even the Exceptional acting of Sam Witwer could elevate that game enough to be noteworthy. Besides, they should have just rebooted Syphon Filter or remade the first three games in that series. That would have sold way more than another random zombie game. Especially now that MGS and Splinter Cell is dead they don't have to worry about competition in the espionage action genre.

It isn't 'unfortunate' that games are half baked or don't work at all. These people just have no idea how to do their job properly the the time of all their coworkers and employees is wasted

  • Here's an idea; make a better game, don't launch broken and half finished, if upper management doesn't let the developers do their job, instead of passing the blame and saying there was nothing you can do, quit and go to a company that'll actually release a finished product. We voted against their shitty game with our wallets and it killed the chances for a sequel, but if the game itself was decent at all, we would've again voted with our wallets.

  • Don't you just hate these developers. They are SO up on themselves and their abilities they honestly can't understand why their creation, their effort, is not worshipped by the consumers. Since they are SOOO damn perfect it must be the consumers fault the product does not sell well. Fracking idiots. The most BASIC rule of selling products is the customer will pay what the product is worth to them. If the product is priced more that the value they think they will get from the product they will not buy it. Period. So if you have a game that sells for say $80 .. then the consumer has to believe they will get at least $80 in value for the game. Simple. And if the game is not selling at that price, well, the game provides less value than you thought. And what is even worse is if you advertise the game to sell it, and people buy it at that $80 price expecting a great value based on the ads, and then they do not get the value ... well the reviews become mediocre or poor and that then convinces others it has a lower value. So it's not Trolls and it's not bad Consumers .. it's simply developers with delusions of being so great pushing mid tier value games and high prices and not delivering on the value that price calls for. Or in other words, incompetent developers.

  • If the games coming out are consistently trash and take so long to get to a decent state that they are already on sale, or even worse the price of the game has dropped by the time it has been cleaned up to what it should have been at launch, then why would we ever buy games at full price? Let alone at launch. I have a backlog of games that I'm waiting to buy till after they are in a good state, assuming they even get there.

  • He's correct about the piracy issue. It killed the PSP and any chance of Sony doing a handheld again. I think the guy just felt really burned after putting 5 years into making a game. Imagine if you worked on videos for 5 years, and then you get people using ad blocker, get your content for free and then gripe about the content and say "well I wouldve let you get ad revenue if your content was any good". I kind of side with the dev here, but I think he could've said it in a way that showed gratitude for those who DID support his game at launch.

I literally cried in laughter when he compared God of War and that Dev Team to Days Gone. What a joke, man. Devs like him are the type that I actually avoid trying to buy games from. At least he let me know that he is not worth my time or money in the future. So thanks for that. And thank you too Yong for covering this.

  • Hmm... Days Gone... Published directly by Sony of America... Who's CEO (Michael Lynton) got $11.1 million in 2017 alone. How's about they give the game away for free, and he pays for it personally? I think we've clearly already spent enough, for a single man to have such a surplus. In fact, I think it's quite justifiable that we start getting payed to play the games, concidering the amount of growth pretty much every AAA company sees solely from in-game microtransactions.

  • The 200,000 people who downloaded Syphonfilter on the PSP, would never ever fking buy that game. Thats why they downloaded it. Lets be honest, that game wasn't good either, thus people sure as hell not wasting money on it. Just because people download something from the bay or ripper sites, does not mean they would've bought said product if there was no pirated copies floating on the internet. Thats just dumb. If someone would never ever buy a product, but if it were given out for free, no sht they would take it, because its free!! If they had the only 1 option to get product, that is to buy it only, they would never purchase it.

  • When it comes to piracy it's funny seeing americans and the like on their high horse talking about how bad piracy is because 90% of people who don't live in Canada, U.S., U.K, Europe, Japan and Oceania is more worried about food, clothing and survival than paying double the price first worlders pay for videogames.

  • Dude is making a lot of shocking assumptions, kinda alarming he's this ignorant of how things look from the outside. There's almost no point in getting them new now, launch would be a big deal if there weren't constant launches every year and most of them are for overhyped trash. I already stopped pre-ordering games because companies took that the wrong way. Now I try to wait a at least a week on anything because I can't trust that the game isn't half-finished and that some reviewers aren't in the publishers pocket. That's is, if I don't wait for a sale because I have rent, food costs, medical bills, etc.

  • His whole argument ignores the fact that developers have been crapping on consumers for a while now, releasing buggy, half finished games with the promise that they'll be made whole later through updates. Fallout 76 is a prime example. What the developers promised is not what they delivered. Even then, almost each update meant to patch one problem caused more problems. This behavior and attitude from the devs has become the rule rather than the exception at this point. Not to mention the monetization of every facet of every game. Why pay full price for a game where I'm going to have to shell out more to get the full experience. With the monetization of the games at the extent that it is, the question shouldn't be why don't people purchase at full value but rather why do the game companies keep putting them on the market at full retail price?

  • Related to a fragment of the video: I don't think that piracy is a problem, why? Because those are "sales" that would never happend, therefore where wrongly accounted during market analisis. Usually there are 3 types of pirates: 1 The most common, the one that pirates because they don't have money to spend on X product. 2 The pirate that pirates because they don't wanna support the studio or some of the companies behind the project (usually comes down to those said companies having doubtful morals or internal politics like crunching etc) 3 Those that pirate because there is no other legal way to get the product in their region and importing is A to expensive or B stright up impossible. Yeah, i know there's people thate pirates "cuz its free", but i personally think that those are a minority, or unconciously are part of the before mentioned groups. Piracy now days isn't the problem. Saying that "we lost X millions to piracy" it's wrong, because that was based on the fact that everyone in the estimated sales prediction has the money to actually spend it on the product, when its 100% sure that not everyone will be able to buy the product. A, and there are the ones that pirate because the demo format is dead in many platforms like xbox or sony, and pirate the games to try them and see if they are actually worth it. And i am a good example of what i just said, i pirated Monster Hunter World, to test if my potato pc was able to run it, and then i bought it on the steam capcom weekend sale for 34€ because i literally don't have 70€ for a full game+ expansion, i usually only buy 3~4 max games per year because thats what i can afford, and i pick those that i can literally put thousands of hours in.

A significant number of developers are out of touch with consumers.

  • The only game for which I agree with this sentiment is _Crash Bandicoot 4._ The _N.Sane Trilogy_ was at the top of the UK sales charts for something like 4 months, but Crash 4 came out and *nobody* brought it. (admittedly, Activision is partly to blame for asking a preposterous £60 -- equivalent to about $75 US). The game was a masterpiece, and was complete and bug free at launch without patches. Now, the developers, _Toys for Bob_ have been transferred over to _Call of Duty_ support, and many staff have quit. All because the game didn't get the player support it deserved.

Arin did a lot of work in this episode, he brought his team a TON of melons!" The real reason they kicked him was that he wouldn't play along with the "sexually attracted to a teammate" bit that so many reality shows do. He straight up told them that he was happily married, so they could take his weak compliments, or just not have that interview segment at all.

  • When it launched I was intrigued but the early reviews said it was rough and so I waited. After that I kept seeing it when I'd visit Gamestop to pick something up and always said "Next time" as my intrigue wasn't massive from what I'd seen. Having finally played it via PS+ I enjoy the game but it's got some aspects that feel incomplete or rushed, primarily with the bike. The whole point is rebuilding an awesome bike but it just feels limited. It's an apocalypse but you can strip enemy bikes for parts or certain upgrades you'd think logical don't exist. Also the whole thing about Sarah's custom tank that Manny is "looking" for and doesn't actually exist in the game feels like cut content.

  • I actually agree with him, if a game don't make enough money why would they make a sequel. People need to understand its a business if yall stop buying trash games like call of duty and assassins creed that come out every year and bought exclusive games that have a new experience we will get more of those and less of the call of duty games also people buying into the micro transaction and complaining about it but if u are giving them money they will never stop until u stop giving them money. If yall didn't know no company cares about u they just want your money so whatever gets them your money they are going to do that. I only buy PS good exclusive games and the best 3rd party games at full price and I don't buy call of duty every year money grab games. And all the people buying shark cards on GTA is the reason GTA 6 is not coming any time soon smh

  • Thiss wouldn't be an issue if devs just released more fucking demos. The consumer really doesn't know what he's going to get you can't blame them for being careful. Over the past 10 years or so devs have been pulling some fucked up shit to put gamers on guard. A demo can help make a more informed choice. If they have nothing to fear and if they have faith in their product a short demo should be simple to release.

  • If you want a sequel to your game launch it finished instead of a broken mess.

  • He just has an unpopular opinion. I buy Etrian Odyssey games at full price not because I care to support the developers, I do it because I love the series and know the game will deliver the experience I paid for. if I have high promises in a game, I'll consider preordering it. Most of the time I won't. I was heavily interested in anthem and decided to wait to see what it would become after launch, look at where it is now.

  • Don't release a game in a nearly unplayable state and people will buy it at full price. This piece of shit is trying to blame customers because the game was full of bugs at launch and sales didn't climb until it was fixed and hit the bargain bin. Lol

  • 2 big issues before even getting to the meat of the article. Games sequel is canned and after it gets "public" the ex developer CREATIVE design developer goes on a public rant... I'm sorry but this isn't a good look at all. As one can make the simple point and thats if a YOUR game underperforms and undersells. I think the customer IS SHOWING YOU THE VALUE OF YOUR GAME. I hate saying I do like Days Gone a lot but it most definitely LACKS any reason to replay it. And the zombie diversity is very "bland."

  • Yeah, so, the industry is kinda NOTORIOUS for it's obsession with preliminary/projected scores on review sites like Metascore. And this isn't new. It's been going on for years. Back in 2012, Square(P)Enix murdered a game in development called Dead Sun, which would have been a spiritual successor to the highly-acclaimed Legacy of Kain series of games- which hasn't seen a follow-on of any sort in basically 20 years (unless you count Nosgoth, and that was a game none of us really wanted and never made it out of Beta). Reportedly, Square did this because the projected metascore of the game came out to 80, rather than the 85 they'd have preferred. The Development studio making the game also got a pretty raw deal out of that- and of course, we never got a game. Square just stuffed a pillow over it's face and choked it out, because of five points on a projected metascore. Took the fandom years to figure out a game had even been in development- or that it was canceled, or why. So this ding-dong running around criticizing gamers for their purchasing practices as a reason for why good games don't get made is not only dead-freaking-rude, it's also highly inaccurate. Dead Sun never even released. We didn't have a game to pay full freaking price on, even.
