What games have become

So I was browsing around and seen this and though, "wow, this is so accurate it is pathetic". I would not have thought to use fast food but tell me this is not the truth of so many games these days...

If you get that all from just the burger... What about the fries and soda? 

But yeah, it does seem painfully true. It is almost like they strip the finished game so much to make sure they can milk as much as they can from people.

I am honestly not bothered by this when the core game is still good by itself or on its own. I think this was more of an issue back in like 2006 to 2012. They seem to have toned it down a lot and focus enough on the main game to make you not feel like you are missing out if you don't buy the extras.

Same here. I was getting into a rant about this with a friend and really, it is no where near as bad. I think they noticed what is acceptable and what is not by the actual people who buy and play these games.

I hate it, too, but I think the justification for it is that while the cost to develop games has increased over the past 20 years, the relative sale price of them has not.  So publishers have been looking for other ways to extract revenue.

Here's an example of where it's going to hurt them too. I had Middle-earth: Shadow of War in my wish list and have instead removed it until a day in the future when it sells on a sweet special instead if I even decide to buy it. Why you ask?

Middle-earth: Shadow of War is getting an in-game store, called the Market, that sells orcs and other items for use in the game's Nemesis System. One can also buy loot chests, war chests, XP boosts and bundles.

Now sure, they say that none of the items sold for real money are pay to win (like an XP boost to save time isn't a pay to win item anyway) and that everything is optional. The reason I hate this though is that they've put a price on the content of the game in a way and cheapened it by providing this shortcuts for real cash. I'd hate paying full price for this game and then playing through it all the while thinking about what they did to try and cheapen the experience for some or superficially prolong it for others not willing to pay more money over.

Read more on it here and here.
