You know, one argument that I see being raised against some indy titles is that they sometimes are poorly optimized and buggy and in terms of game-breaking bugs, Kingdom Come: Deliverance was a bit of a nuisance, but it was patched and most kinks got resolved...
So not only is the game crap but it shuts off PS4s at random. When that happens too often it fucking wreck your PS4 too.
Imagine being that dumb asshole that actually buys broken shit games like FO76 or Anthem. Then you get banned for suspected hacking after putting in 900 hours or it just fucking destroys your console. It's like the Darwin Awards with video games. If you actually buy Anthem you deserve whatever's coming to you because you're the same kind of stupid fucker who would fall for pyramid schemes. In the future we will have triple A games straight up blowing up consoles with shills on Reddit writing out defenses on their iPhones from the hospital that it's perfectly playable as long as you sit away further from the TV to minimize the bleeding.
That being said, I have never, ever played an indy title that fucking wrecked my rig.
This is a new low. Being banned after 900 hours is absurd, having your console shut down and just be broken is inacceptable.
Then again, EA is the company that allegedly killed someone's father via a faulty subscription-billing system.
It's just a rumor from years ago related to a billing error that actually happened, but essentially, EA had a system that would deduct the cost of a player's subscription from their bankaccount automatically. At some point, there was a bug that deducted the cost for the subscription repeatedly (several dozens of times, in fact), in some cases until the bank-account was dry.
One guy claimed that this lead to his electricity-bill bouncing, which meant that his electricity-company cut the power to his house. Unfortunately, his father was hooked up to some medical device, which was necessary for him to live (like a breather or possibly some sort of medical emergency alert thingy) and without power, he died.
There were also some rumors that EA did this intentionally to boost their data for their quarterly fiscal report.
