all gaming companies are after is the $/£
Anyone remember the old days of fps games such as call of duty? those days are long gone. Now its all about how much money they can make with as little effort put into the game as possible. i can (kind of) forgive titles such as fortnite/apex legends as they are free to play and companies need to make money somehow (they ain't charities) But in full priced games (upwards of £/$ 50 for "special editions") the lootbox/ paid cosmetics don't wash (not to mention in some games weapons are locked behind lootboxes looking at you call of duty). i for one will not be playing fps games from major publishers like EA/Activision until they stop this practice as the best way to vote is with your wallet. this debacle is the reason i stopped pre ordering games and wait for user (not critic) reviews (the battlefield 2042 critic reviews on metacritic seem highly suspicious with EGM giving battlefield 2042 100 and numerous sites giving it 90).
