Sad. Half-Life: Opposing Force is better than the original imo. Why couldn't they keep making good titles?
Many studio's that you think you once knew aren't the studio's that existed in the past

Many of them ultimately become filled entirely different people with totally different ideas

Even more of them become either corrupted by idiocy or bought out by trash-fires like EA or Activision, and then are fucked over until they become garbage and get shut down.

With all this fuckery in the business who would ever want to be a game dev?

Because they want to be a part of the team that makes the next Mario or Halo. Most people in the industry could double their salaries in a day if they chose to work at a boring company, but they don't, so people like Pitchford can run them into the ground ragged and be thanked for the privilege of tasting the sole of his boot.

Solo developer is the way to go. A majority of the people working in games are asset designers or set builders. Even something simple takes multiple people usually. We're talking 300-400 people making a city. I personally think they do it because they want to be remembered for working on something that will be remembered for decades, or have been tricked they need to sell their soul to be a dev. I'm personally just taking the "fuck with an engine and make garbage till it's good" approach.

Pervy Pitchford fucks his employees out of bonuses. https://kotaku.com/sources-despite-...-1842617645/amp?__twitter_impression=trueThis sucks, because Dave Eddings said that GBX employees take lower salaries after they're promised royalty shares. https://twitter.com/davideddings/status/1125565287628144641?s=19

I swear that Randy can't even re-release a mediocre game into another platform without doing SOMETHING. BL3 on Steam just came out and despite it seeming to sell well I see literally no one talking about it. I feel like Randy was trying to take sales away from Doom, I only think so because he's petty enough to do that after Overwatch did it to him.

Imagine releasing a an overhyped cell shaded mess of a game concurrently with a heavilt marketed media juggernaut.

Oh wait. Its like Pitchford wants to ensure he has an excuse when his games suck.

To be fair you're gonna here different things from different circles, Minecraft is fucking massive but I never hear about it because unlike Pervy Pitchford I don't hang around children.

What? No, it was to sell the game to more people. Not to take money away from Doom. It released on the day after they were no longer obligated to keep the game exclusive to Epic Store.

The game isn't actually that bad but because he has a compulsion to do stupid shit he fucks with the image of the game.

I like the Borderlands games, except for TPS. The story isn't amazing or anything, but I do really enjoy the gameplay and all the bonkers weapons. The only time I really enjoyed the story in the games was Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep and Tales From the Borderlands. The games have their moments. Handsome Jack is always awesome. I enjoy when Brick and Mordechai banter. I love Zer0. Krieg is fun. LoaderBot in Tales From the Borderlands is awesome. Mr. Torgue is hilarious. But for the most part, I play for the shooting.

BL3 has been a mixed bag for me. On one hand, the gameplay is the best it's ever been in the series and the guns are outrageously cool. In BL2 I pretty much stuck to Torgue and Jacobs combat rifles, shotguns, some sniper rifles, and rocket launchers. But in BL3 I've enjoyed every type of weapon. But on the other hand I'm really bummed that more characters from the previous games haven't shown up. I miss Mr. Torgue. I was really sad that Brick, Mordechai and Tiny Tina only had brief cameos in one mission. I was really hoping that everyone would be teaming back up, including Fiona, Sasha and LoaderBot from TFtB. Hell, Rhys and Vaughn didn't even get time together, and they're supposed to be best friends. I was also disappointed that neither Rhys nor Fiona were playable vault hunters. And I'm really disappointed that they didn't bring back Troy Baker to voice Rhys, even though his part is fairly small.

But if I had known what a greasy shit stain Randy Pitchford was before I became a fan of the games I don't think I would have started playing them. Luckily I didn't pay any of my own money for BL3. I was given a gift card for Christmas and bought it with that.
