I keep seeing it happen all the time

A game that prides itself on being hard and grindy, realizes it can make more money from casuals and makes the game easier and less grindy

Path of exile, a game where devs are such pussies they can't even nerf skills that can ONE SHOT END GAME BOSSES and skills that allow you to clear whole maps without clicking a single button, they added an item that literally allows you to walk and mobs die automatically, this was supposed to be a hardcore game

Diablo 3, started off good i think, items were hard to get i heard, but everyone seemed to hate it. They couldn't fathom actually grinding to get best items, NNooo they have to get it INSTANTLY!

So this happened

Smart drops where a dropped item is guaranteed to roll the appropriate mainstat for the class that finds it


The rng is not even there basically, because you can customize 1 out of 6 stats to your liking, 2 stats will be good at least and there are almost no useless stats, so almost every item you get will be good.

Add that on the fact that legendaries drop like candy, people end up gearing up in less than a week and quit in less than a month, "nothing to do" they say.

So devs decide to add super rare versions of legendaries to try to sneak up more rng without angering the casuals, didn't work. Now they seem they will pussy out of it and make it easier again, cus casuals have all the power..

I hate having niche tastes, i always get fucked, games that are awesome turn to shit because casuals

I just wanted one aaa level game that is according to my tastes, casuals have fucking billions to chose from and they still want more?

Guess i'm going back to modding singleplayer, it seems like even if i find a game that i love, casuals will storm in soon and demand changes that make me hate the game

>muh casuals

It's the jews, anon. The entire modern entertainment industry was part of social engineering, dating back a century ago. Copyright was created to make a commodity out of human creativity, which was then robbed into the hands of the richest jews and out of the public hands. They sold you on the term nostalgia to make you blame yourself for the obvious side effects of predatory capitalism, that destroyed the creative output of the entertainment industry. The term casuals was also sold to you as a war tactic to create division in between interest groups.

They first made the systematic destruction of your nations entertaining, then slowly take it all away from you to drive you into despair. It's pure sadism. Now go back to playing games, goy.

That was the fucking plan, dipshit. Demoralization. We are at the endgame of western civilization, which is why entertainment today is nothing but low effort acceleration propaganda.

But they did indeed fuck up. Initially they had a big plan for VR, but zuckberg failed to catch the masses, which is why he looks like this today. He lost his place in the big leagues for that fuck up.

Grinding is for chumps. If your game relies on denying players the more fun aspects of the game by closing off certain features behind an artificial barrier, then you have a shit game.

Eat a bag of dicks, OP. The problem is, however, gaming being bought out by big business Jews. Games were once made by loser nerds for other nerds. It began to make a bunch of money so kikes put money into it. Now it cant just sell wel, it has to sell the most it can. If that means compromising quality for a few more shekels, so be it. Any game company owned by a publicly traded company will always go to shit.

If your game contains grinding, it just means that you're either trying to inflate play time, or are shit at balance and need grinding as a crutch in case you made something TOO difficult

>In 1975, the usage of "blockbuster" for films coalesced around Steven Spielberg's Jaws. It was perceived as a new cultural phenomenon: a fast-paced, exciting entertainment, inspiring interest and conversation beyond the theatre (which would later be called "buzz"), and repeated viewings.[4] The film is regarded as the first film of the "blockbuster era", and founded the blockbuster film genre.[5] Two years later, Star Wars expanded on the success of Jaws, setting box office records and enjoying a theatrical run that lasted more than a year.[6] After the success of Jaws and Star Wars, many Hollywood producers attempted to create similar "event" films with wide commercial appeal, and film companies began green-lighting increasingly large-budget films, and relying extensively on massive advertising blitzes leading up to their theatrical release. These two films were the prototypes for the "summer blockbuster" trend,[7] in which major film studios and distributors planned their annual marketing strategy around a big release by July 4.[8] The next fifteen years saw a number of high-quality blockbusters released including the likes of Alien (1979) and its sequel, Aliens (1986), the first three Indiana Jones films (1981, 1984 and 1989), E.T. (1982), Ghostbusters (1984), Beverly Hills Cop (1984), the Back to the Future trilogy (1985, 1989 and 1990), Top Gun (1986), Die Hard (1988), Batman (1989) and its sequel Batman Returns (1992), and The Hunt for Red October (1990).[9]

>Eventually, the focus on creating blockbusters grew so intense that a backlash occurred, with some critics and film-makers decrying the prevalence of a "blockbuster mentality" and lamenting the death of the author-driven, "more artistic" small-scale films of the New Hollywood era (despite criticism of the praise the latter era received). [10] [11] This view is taken, for example, by film journalist Peter Biskind, who wrote that all studios wanted was another Jaws, and as production costs rose, they were less willing to take risks, and therefore based blockbusters on the "lowest common denominators" of the mass market.[12] In his book The Long Tail, Chris Anderson talks about blockbuster films, stating that a society that is hit-driven, and makes way and room for only those films that are expected to be a hit, is in fact a limited society.[13]
