It's in that cash-cow


Here's to the video game industry! And for all the depressing bullshit for which it stands...


I know plenty of people who would argue that Call of Duty and Battlefield tend to be exactly that. CoD less so now, but it was pretty damn bad a few years back.

And I'd mostly agree. I stopped playing CoD after I was pretty sure I had killed a greater number of Nazis than had actually ever existed. CoD had to change up it's formula because so many people felt that way. Of course, now those games are fairly worthless if you don't play PvP.

And they never were quite as bad as the sports games. They at least had different story lines and locations/maps. Sports games are the exact same thing. Same teams, same locations, same progression. Which makes sense in it's own right, as real life sports don't change much year to year. I just can't fathom spending $60 on differences that took a weekend to code. Swap out a player's jersey/team, update the rosters. TA DA! NEW GAME!

I can't blame EA too much for doing so. As much as I hate them for doing so, if I could shit in a box and sell it, then shit in a slightly different box a year later and sell it to the same people, I would.

No argument here.

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.
