Another problem is bandwagoning. There's no reason Anthem had to be a live-service, it could have just as easily used the Borderlands model and probably fared better, but because live-service games were hot shit at the time and because no one at Bioware had the spine to make a decision they just let the wind guide them.

We had similar problems last-gen with everything going open-world when it didn't have to, and in the 7th-gen when everything had to be a brown-grey shooter or use fucking motion controls.

It's just the nature of the industry when you're dealing with multi-million dollar investments, (which is why indie devs can get away with taking more risks,) but rather than accept that Jim opts to mince round the maypole of "cAAApitalism" for the millionth time.


There were a lot of unfinished games in the 8th-gen, it's just most people forgot about them.

No Man's Sky is the most famous, but you also had Just Cause 3, Evolve, Darksiders 3, Final Fantasy XV, Assassin's Creed Unity, The Division, Metal Gear Solid V, Destiny 1&2...that's just off the top of my head, I'm sure people could add more; the 8th generation was defined by the mantra of 'fuck it: ship it; fix it later'.
I would not call Final Fantasy XV unfinished. Yeah they added a lot in the windows update, but the base game we got was filled with content. I personally put in over 90 hours in the vanilla build. Now I’d you wanna call the second half extremely rushed, I would absolutely agree with you there, and we should have gotten a larger world than we did, but I wouldn’t say that makes it unfinished.
But see, if Jim acknowledged them not only would it defeat his point, but he'd have to backtrack all of the shit he said about no man's sky when it launched, and Jim is definitely too spineless.
I don’t even think he’d have to do that. Everything said about it at the time still stands, since it all did happen. You’re not wrong just because a game got better.
I’m of the belief that Sean Murray is still a lying Con Man, but that doesn’t mean he didn’t give the game solid updates.

It was clear from the fact huge swathes of content are missing from the story (either repackaged as movies or DLC) and the plot points that are there come and go at a breakneck pace (I literally lol'd at how fast Noctis and his woman get reunited then she instantly dies) that the game was rushed out the door because SE were tired of throwing money at it and needed to recoup some investment.

It's still a decent game, overall, but it is abundantly clear it wasn't ready to be released.

I think the wider point that 'Stephanie' is making is that people have become too used to shitty business practices to make fair judgments on getting their money's worth, like games with bare content with the expectation that extra stuff will come later. He has acknowledged No Man's Sky's uber rework as a positive in the past, but he's become so bitter and cynical I don't think he takes anything in good faith anymore - which seems to be a mandatory character trait of 'troons'.

I still can't quite believe he's transitioned. He looks ridiculous, like a Nazi cowgirl who's been drawn by an inflation porn artist.

To me that’s a difference between rushed and unfinished. The base game has all of its necessary content and little to no glaring bugs. I’d argue No Man’s Sky and Cyber Punk were closer to being unfinished.

though they did cut a ton. I followed the game since it’s initial reveal, and as a result I had a much deeper understanding of the narrative than someone who just played the game and watch the anime and movie ever got. That was definitely a failure on square’s part

I find it odd that his big “point” in this video is that overhauls never work in turning games around when both Final Fantasy XIV and No Man’s Sky had very prolific turn around thanks to major overhauls. both of which happened in the last 7 years. Ffs, vanilla FFXIV didn’t even have mouse support.

Plenty of games have succeeded from overhauls
I think his dislike ratio's gone down since he put on a wig. Either people got sick of watching him and now it's only his biggest simps, or the ploy really worked and now no one will dare make fun of or criticism him because muh transfobeuh.

Given his subs and views are going down, I would guess the former. The people who would normally dislike his videos just can't be bothered anymore.

basically why i've opted out of early access games unless they're something where i can actually vouch for the company (rockfish did an amazing job with everspace so i don't feel bad about getting everspace 2 in EA, for instance). there's definitely a valid point to make about how cynical the games industry has gotten to the point a game is actually "finished" years after release, but jim always loses it jerking himself off over "the ebils of capitalism"

It should be worth noting that they called out the fanboys, saying how they whine when they people's boobs shrink but when Sterling's boobs grow, they start complaining.

I think there's a reason why they're unsubscribing about that and while it has to do with boobs, it's not the way Sterling's thinking of it.
