So, end goal accomplished, industry! Congratulations!

That doesn't make sense because Bethesda wouldn't benefit from that strategy at all.


Bethesda just made a bad game that they keep making worse, nothing more.

I'm not saying that they will, Bethesda will obviously take the backlash, but overall the industry, as a sort of organic being, will have successfully shifted its business model to live service game passes on the backs of these failures, because they are being portrayed as better by comparison. The managers over at Bethesda have enough money to retire rich or simply move over to a new company that will readily hire them despite their recent failures, so this last push for money is just the cherry on the cake, it's the employees that will be sacrificed in the middle of all this and the higher-ups simply don't care.

What do you think TES6 is going to be? Bethesda doesn't want another Skyrim on it's hands, a colossally popular title that people bought most of a decade ago and have just kept playing. They want you to have to pay forever.

People excuse high prices and shenanigans with it's still one of the "cheapest hobbies".

I ask you, in this day and age, who would want to buy lower end video cards priced at higher tiers, to play dumbed down/wallet violators like live service games?

It's over, this hobby is a horror show and to avoid a knife in your back, don't entertain this movie!
It is the console industry moving onto PC, most will be subscription based in the nearby future sadly games which had campaign will lack of it entirely and will be MP only *FO76*

I'll be honest, I'm pretty disappointed. I wanted Private Servers... like, real private servers. I probably would've paid $99 for a "License" or something, as long as I could run the server on hardware of my choosing, on my own connection, and have control over it. Having a "private session" isn't even remotely the same, and isn't worth paying for in any way.
