It's interesting that AAA games are becoming analogous to pop music, as they relate to the medium of which they are part. E3 is just a bunch of trailers for rushed sequels to existing, played-out franchises. The big price tags are almost universally not worth it, as these games typically release with major bugs, and often rely on grind-enforced microtransactions.

Meanwhile, indie games keep getting better, more innovative, and remain reasonably priced. Ubisoft, EA, Bethesda, Rockstar, and the rest of the big-budget studios can eat my ass.

    Because there is already a shitton of information about the gameplay, no need to make another gameplay video about it

    Well, they have to raise money somehow, and they do deliver. I guess you have not seen what they have released the last month

    I'd say a better analogy is to AAA movies nowadays. Pop music nowadays usually is mixed great and made by world class musicians. And although it is also a cash grab and the music can get stale, at least the product is of high quality and complete when it releases.

    @Linux it was 3.2 or 3.3 i rekon, i saw them at the time. I won't comment on the game itself, but CIG's business practices don't look much vetter than major publishers to me...
