Quote of the Week: The Problem in a Nutshell

I’ll buy it, I’ll play it, but…I’m expecting the ‘gameplay’ to be garbage. =(

(The quote refers to SW:TOR, but “the problem” is general.)

  1. Natural selection is working just fine. People keep buying crap, so crap is what we keep getting.

    In the end, companies can only go by what sells. If one million people buy a game, it doesn’t matter if all one million of them then complain that it sucks… they bought the game, the company has the money. Compare that to the game that 25,000 people bought and unanimously proclaimed to the bestest mostest awesomest game EVAR!!1! … doesn’t matter, one million is greater than 25,000, so the next games they make will emulation the former game until it doesn’t outsell the latter game.

    1. I was referring to the fact that the person being quoted survived, not that bad games continue to be made. Preaching to the choir on that one.

  2. I don’t believe that, when not under constraint, people do very much that they don’t wish to do. What we do is lie about what we wish to do.

    There are so many things that we know we want to do but that we would prefer others not to know that we want to do. So we do them but claim we don’t want to.

    Why we think it makes us look better to be seen to be doing something of our own free will that we claim we would prefer not to do, however, beats me.

  3. To be honest, I don’t see why people keep trash talking TOR. The game isn’t out yet and the only thing we see of gameplay is from leaked beta (or the actual beta if you’re invited which most people aren’t) and the gameplay showed to us by the devs. Saying the gameplay is going to be garbage has no basis. As for the “problem” though, I agree.

  4. Excuse me for expecting a poor game while at the same time hoping I get suprised by a good game. Some of us know we are in a minority when it comes to what the general MMO crowd buys versus what we want to play so we are relegated to rooting for pleasant suprises. The end of the ‘quote’ did also mention that I wanted to be wrong desparately. . .
