Gaming in a Perfect World

#1TechizePosted 4/5/2013 8:49:36 PM
We don't live in a perfect world that much is obvious, but that makes me wonder what would gaming be like in a perfect world? Free DLC? No DLC? No DRM?

What do you think would be different for gaming if this was a perfect world?

Free everything and better games.

we already had as perfect an era as it could have been inbetween the 5th and 6th gen.

PC hardware doesn't need to match console hardware in price when PC gamers save literal thousands from the software they buy. http://www.steamgamesales.com/

Better and cheaper games
Accessories that aren't overpriced
Much improved hardware reliability
No external "power brick" crap
Devs who take time to produce quality games instead of rushing new games out the door half finished with the intentions of selling the rest of the game later via DLC and microtransactions

Perfect for the gamers means imperfect for the creators.

No online multiplayer
No DLC (even free)
Hardware made from Nintendium

Pretty much fixes most of the things I dislike.

This is the only thing I agree with.

Although, I think they ran out after the GCN era, or at least started cutting back on how much they use, because I've had a DS just up and die over night, and the Wii had GPU issues, and is also known to corrupt 1019 block GCN memory cards.

So, you would instead have the power supply inside the console, adding to the amount of heat generated inside the system itself?

Yes, I am aware that is how PCs are built, but, 1. PCs are typically larger, with more open space inside, 2. are designed so the power supply is not directly over extremely heat sensitive components (yes, better design can be used, but can only go so far with such a confined space to work in, unless you want consoles that are bigger, not smaller like what a lot of people are demanding), and 3. if heat does cause hardware failure, it is cheaper to replace 1 component that failed than it is to replace an entire system.

There would be a way to make people actually cooperate in random online multiplayer.
