I can´t get it how people can pay that much for a (pre?)alpha game.
I am sorry, but it´s the customers and hypetrain passengers that are the reason for the gaming industry going down the drain.
Because those Hobby-Devs nowadays don´t have to deliver anything, they can make wrong promises, lie, advertise their crap with polished videos, but
people will still buy such rubbish. They fall for pre-order, not one time, but several times, like with The Division and "games" like that.
That all started with that early access crap and the steam policies for early access dev´s, like, for example, they never ever have to deliver a
finished product to the customers that payed for those "games". That was the time the quality of ALL, even the AAA Studios titles, extinguished.
Hobby devs only had to buy some trees, grass, animals and stuff from the unity store, some are even free and used by such "devs". To sell empty
promises. I know what i am talking about, i love those "survival"-crafting-exploring-base building games, and there were and are only early access
titles of this genre, even if crap like Reign of Kings and ARK are sold as full versions, but just "play" them one time.... full version.... paaaah!
Now i own around 16, 17 "survival" games, all early access, some i own since the very first beginning, like Rust and 7 Days to Die. And i am a bit
ashamed that i bought so much of that fraudulent wannabe "games" before realising that all of those devs are just hobby-, weekend devs that make
promises galore, but aren´t able to develop games. That they all took the chance of making fast money without really doing something for it. Not at
all for the quality of games.
How many of my games are worth to play now? Rust, one or two times a year for some days, on a good server of some friends with tons of mods. In
vanilla this game is still a joke, after nearly 4 years in early access stadium.
7 Days is even worse, but playable for some days a year, without those boring and annoying zombies, just for building, farming, exploring, till it
gets boring again. Maybe you can play it, if not the last "up"date destroyed everything again.
Really worth to play, from all those games, is only Empyrion - Galactic Survival. Good progress, the only one good devs that communicate with their
But the worst thing is, since early access, as i said before, ALL games are just rubbish, even those from AAA studios.
Why? They see that they can take years to develope a good game, with a good and big team, work hard on it and deliver a very good game. Or they just
sell promises with lies, polished videos, false advertisments and all that, and make the same money, but don´t have to invest that much. They don´t
care anymore about what the players are thinking about dev teams or their games, they all nowadays just want to make fast money. And they make that
fast money, because it seems that there are millions of idiots out there, idiots with too much money.
If nobody would buy the pig in the poke like Pre-Order crap, or early access rubbish, if nobody would pay 60 euros for an (pre?) alpha version of a
game with no content anymore, the developers must change their behaviour and deliver quality games, and not false advertisement.
I came here to read about NMS after reading for more than an hour the steam reviews. I would love to see the refund statistics of NMS, as those from
ARK. But thats something steam is silent about, as i know, i couldn´t find some refund statistics.
I really thought that ARK was "the cream of the crop" of fooling customers. Couldn´t think of that someone will be worse than ARK, but then came No
Mans Sky. And no, i don´t have to own it to know that this is rubbish and sold with lies, some reading about all that is enough.
Like Where´s the NMS we were sold
From the text: Get your tinfoil hats ready people...
And it´s a long, very long list with all the sources listed where Sean Murray lied about the game and what all is missing.
People were told that the game will be updated in the future with "super-duper" content, and for sure everyting for free, because the players bought
the game. And now? Get ready:
Sean Murray Says He Was
“Perhaps Naive” in Saying No Man’s Sky Won’t Have Paid DLC
Sure, he sold a whatever number of those early alpha tech demos called No Mans Sky, for 60 Euros each, but has no money for the promised free DLCs?
Sounds very logical and trustworthy...
And where is the difference between an early access title and a full version that needs to be patched and updated a thousand times, till it becomes a
real game, maybe, in the dark future.
Is it easier to scam people for 60 Euros if a tech demo is called full version?
Wasn´t it funny(for somebody like me that didn´t fall for that scam, i would never ever again pay more than 20 Euros for any game ever) like Murray
hoped people would never be able to find each other because the universe is that huge? And then two people met in NMS on DAY ONE, and couldn´t even
see each other. But Murray told before that people could meet and see each other and interact with each other. I am sure he just hoped that it will
never happen that people meet each other in that game.
Even more funny is that short before release it was said that there is no multiplayer, how could Murray be happy then about two people meeting each
other in a single player game?
Right when you think the top of scam is reached(ARK, 30 or more Euros, don´t remember anymore), a Murray comes with NMS to top it. Doubles the price,
and has way less content and reason to play than ARK. And that means something...
But is it really the dev, or are the customers that buy such "games" for 60 euros to blame for the decline of quality games. For the decline of the
whole gaming industry.
If corporations can deliver incomplete crap and make the same money like hobby- and weekend devs with delivering unfinished crap, why should one ever
again produce quality games, if there are millions of idiots on the earth that are willing to pay more and more for less and less quality?
I wouldn´t even buy NMS if it would be on Steam sale for 10 cents, because dev teams like Hello Games and liars like Sean Murray are not even worth
those 10 cents, fraudsters like them are the reason for the fall of the gaming industry, are the reason for unfinished early access tech demos
flooding the market, such titles nowadays were even sold as full versions, and people think that is normal?
You go to a Pizzeria and order a pizza. But before the waiter reaches your table with your pizza, he takes down the peperonis you paid for, the extra
cheese, the spices. The pizza looks nothing like the pizza on the photo in the window of that Pizzeria. This pizza was praised as the best pizza in
the universe by the pizza chef, but you only get some half baked pizza dough with a bit of tomato sauce and a little bit of cheese. But you already
paid when you entered the Pizzeria, to be one of the "enlightened", few chosen ones that are allowed this pizza.
What would you do, would you defend the pizza chef and it´s "best of the whole universe pizza", or would you get your money back after throwing the
chef this impudence into his greedy face?
