If you don't want Monetization in your video games. Don't buy games like Forza 5

You are not getting the full game of Forza 5. The game is literally forcing grinding methods of that of crap fee to pay titles on iphones in order to get you to pay money.

Don't do it and warn everyone you know that this crap cannot be tolerated from a full priced game. Hell, remember when you could buy a video game and not have any of that crap? If you want to have video games be like the diseased iphone market, go ahead and buy it, but once Fallout 4 comes out and asks you if you want to spend real world money to level up faster, you will know who's fault this all was. Yours.

Story in video games have gotten more important than gameplay nowadays. I recommend dealing with this fact and learning that this is now a storytelling medium.

I won't be buying Forza 5. Or Ryse which also suffers from microtransactions. DLC plagued last gen and if MTs plague this one, I might even skip this gen.

Or, you can just play the game and never pay for anything else.

Preach on. Sad thing is Ryse has it too. And I think Crimson Dragon? Maybe I'm remembering wrong.

This, it's for the people who want to enjoy late game things, but don't have the time to put into the game.

Don't give up. The PS4 is looking like it might turn the tide on that crap. Numbers ain't looking good for the XBONE (I am immune to fuzzy math) but we still need a bit more time.

I feel you though.

Eurogamer speaks the truth, MS are primarily about profit over content & quality.

A game with these kinds of monetizations models are diseased and broken. They are in no way shape or form any good in any kind of way.
