2019, not buying a single EA, Activision, and Bethseda game. I don't even care if the game is good anymore, these companies have made a complete mess of the gaming industry.

What a scam. Meanwhile it's a struggle for most creators to even earn $1 of ad revenue

It's not cosmetic anymore, they've put weapons in battlepass.
And pretty effective ones for sure

How to fix this terrible industry for 2019:

1) Never buy anything from Activision, EA, Konami, Ubisoft, nor Warner Bros (if there is any other publisher you don’t like, add them to this list). Any game from them now will have ruined potential and will always be badly designed on purpose to sell microtransactions, lootboxes, and cheat codes. Create the stigma that anything with these publisher’s name on it is a lesser product because it’s true. If you absolutely NEED to have one of their games but still want to get it legally, wait about a year until the game is on sale with included DLC or (preferably) buy a used copy.

2) Never pre-order any game. Waiting until the game comes out to give them money will force them to make sure it’s a functioning, bug-free (as possible), complete game.

3) Wait until said publishers are downscaled/bankrupt from lack of sales. Even if they change their ways after suffering financial struggles, they’ll just go back to their current agenda once they’re back on top again. Let them burn in bankruptcy. They never cared about you. Don’t give them the satisfaction.

4) Wait until they’re forced to sell IPs and franchises to better publishers in order to cut costs from going under. Developers let go from this should also be given employment opportunities from said publishers. This is, unfortunately, the only drawback to this plan as there’s no telling what will happen to said franchises and developers.

5) Spread. This. Message. Feel free to copy/paste this comment anywhere it’s relevant! Anyone who says “this won’t work” is doing EXACTLY what these publishers want. The moment you give up and think uniting against exploitative and terrible business practices is fruitless is the moment you lose. The squeaky wheel gets the grease. This has worked before and it will work again

Poorly

My theory is that they tried to make Black Ops 4 a Mobile game, but they accidentally put the game on PC and Consoles instead

Red dot in COD = 1$.
Warframe for the PS4 = free.

The games as a service mentality needs to die and with better and better indie games coming out i foresee major companies like these being driven to the point of closing.

Look at Horizon Zero Dawn for PS4.

They released the game for the base price of $60, with no other versions of the game. And the base game has a beautiful long story and a lot of content. Then months later they released the first DLC Expansion, and no season pass. Then months after that they released the 2nd and last DLC expansion.

But when they released the 2nd, the last DLC, at the same time they released a complete edition if the game that includes the base game and all DLC's, for $40 ( I think, it may of been sold for $50, cant remember). But a brand new game that just dropped its last DLC was sold for much much less then any other AAA game at its base state. AND Horizon Zero Dawn has ZERO micro-transactions! None, not a single one, and can be played completly offline, and the complete edition included ALL of the DLC on the Disc! No need to download most of it from the internet. lol.

Thats why Guerilla Games is up at the top of my favorite game studios.
