Ridiculous. After the new story of Gamestop requesting fingerprints for trade ins, I just have to sit down and talk about this. I really miss the days when gamers didn't get sodomized at every turn by corporations, or have to deal with all kinds of BS just to enjoy their hobby. Just in the last few years, we've got:
-Broken games right out of launch -Eff tons of DLC -DRM that clotheslines legit customers while doing nothing to stop pirates -General lack of variety in games -Streaming services that have awful value -Using peripherals to leech ad data -And now treating customers like criminals
So, how do you guys feel about gaming this cycle?
