Yes we all know it, with the way gaming is going a lot of good things will soon be extinct. I’ve gathered what I consider the top five things in gaming that will be extinct soon.
Although some games still have cheats, most do not. Take Dead Rising Off The record for example, if you wanted cheat codes you’d have to pay for them, there was no way to unlock these cheats in the game. What happened to cheats? Sure they can make a game boring but in the case of Saints Row 3 they can actually make a game much better. Remember when we had God Mode on games ….. those were the days. Sadly people don’t/can’t cheat any more.
Playing for fun
We’ve all wanted to get paid to play games but many YouTubers and Pro Gamers are in it simply for the money rather than having fun. Would you attend a gaming tournament if there was no prize money? ….. I didn’t think so. Many gamers on YouTube would rather be sponsored by various companies than have fun with games. E-Sports by and large has ruined the quality of games this generation.
Complete Games and no DLC needed
Do you remember back in the PS2 era where all games were complete, no DLC was needed? Well that’s gone now, with developers leaving out content so they can sell them as DLC. While I’m not against DLC at all, I am against DLC being a rip off, especially where EA and Activision are concerned. Good DLC to me is when I get value out of it. It is a Map Pack that’s £11.49 ….. no thanks.
Decent Licensed titles.
Do you remember back when licensed titles were good. Remember Star Wars Rouge Squadron 2 on Gamecube? Do you remember Star Trek Elite force? It seems that now developers/publishers would rather rush out licensed titles to bank on the success of a TV show or Movie. In fact the only decent Licensed titles these days is Aliens Colonial Marines and WWE13.
Single Player only games
Yes with pretty much every game getting a tacked on multiplayer that no one wanted or asked for, it seems that developers/publisher (COUGH EA) want people to only play online. Lets look at GOOD single player only games like Skyrim and Metal Gear Solid 3. Those games were brilliant. Some of the best games I’ve ever played have been single player only, and it looks like that’s coming to an end.
Pretty soon it won’t be a tacked on Multiplayer, it will be tacked on Campaign.
