CoD

it's pretty much killed most of the gaming industry cause all anyone does anymore is spit out clones.


Cop out again. Call of Duty is not the reason other genres aren't producing. It's not as though if CoD ceased to exist we would suddenly have an influx of quality games.

Want to blame CoD, blame Just Dance as well. It was the second highest selling franchise.

Making things pretty instead of good. But I don't mean graphics. I mean, instead of making a deep, interesting combat system, just make a simple button masher or a bunch of QTEs and add in kill cams and blood and cool, automatic moves. Or, instead of an actual, deep plot with characters that have an actual arc and that you can get emotionally invested in, make them funny or badass with some good voice acting (or just alot of them). Or instead of a world with a deep history and some fascinating events, make some big, open world game where 99% of it is utterly irrelevant filler, and is mostly just the same thing over and over with some shallow, uninteresting sidequests. Or, instead of a deep character development and equipment system, so you can really tailor a character just for you, you get a shallow, obvious system with easy but time consuming item creation (all of which is overpowered if you put even an ounce of thought into it). Wait, speaking of Skyrim...

None of these things are necessarily bad, mind you. I like games that have these things. But that developers, and far too many gamers, accept these substitutions as being as good as the real thing. And I hate that, and it kills gaming, because there's no real feedback; a game is either "terrible", "meh", or "super awesome". Stupid details are whined about, but putting in a lazy, stock plot in place of a real story is accepted and the plot will even get a 9.5 rating.

I hate how all action games are the same. "Mash some buttons here, brutally murder an alien mook there, watch a 30-second cutscene for the killing-blow".

Of course DLC is optional. So the hate for it seems a bit much.

Definitely the people who buy the games. Majority of them are idiots.
