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?

I feel the same way, and I think a lot of older gamers do too.

I don't really like the Free to Play model. It seems like a way of making more money than you ever could normally. So Free to Play is kind of deceptive.

Storytelling has taken a back seat to DLC and other gimmicks.

So you are not alone.

I find not being in a constant state of butthurt helps. Try that TC.
I hate popular stuff, and that makes me really, really cool.
