Money makes the world go around, and we all know video games have to make money to exist. But what happens when publishers go too far? Well, if you’ve played any of these games, you already know…

  1. I got battlefront 2 after they fixed the pay2win aspect, so I don’t get what everyone is so angry about. But I’ve heard a lot.

  2. Let me introduce you to Jurassic World: Aftermath you ALSO have to pay to finish the game

  3. “Unless you Played the game for 40 hours” thats literally 1/10th of 99 runecrafting bro

  4. This just showing up in my feed?, anyways, how about the time EA/Dice tried to sell a Red DOT in BF4?, anybody remember that!?,like wtf… so much for standard reticles…..

  5. Who would dislike this video 😂 guess some people like throwing money at bullshit schemes… or are just uneducated… or a kid with there parents credit card

  6. Its rapidly getting to the point where gaming is too expensive for me, I make a good wage so it's not like I cant afford it, it's that i cant justify paying so much for a cheap broken game that I barely enjoy. If the gaming industry doesn't stop these anti consumer practices I'll have to find a different hobby.

  7. Shadow of War’s micro transactions were the real nemesis system.

  8. well from the mortal kombat its… pretty garbage but in the same time i havent seen anyone use them. mostly when u can find them for free so its pointless anyway. only takes like 4 buttons and no effort to make a fatality.

  9. Modding PC games was all about a labour of love driven by fun seeking individuals to enhance their personal experience and the experiences of other like minded players, monetising it is extremely bad for consumers. I sort of agree that people should be paid for their time and effort but I wouldn't pay a penny just to put Thomas the Tank engine into skyrim to replace the dragons – it's fun for a while but deep down I know that once the novelty has worn off I'll never use the mod again.

    I think all modders should set up donation pages so people can support them if they choose to, being forced to pay for a mod did not and will not ever work well.

  10. I do not agree with micro transactions or half the game being DLC, but games have been $60 since about 2005. With inflation, that's almost $80 today. So they aren't making as much per sale. They are starting to sell games for $70 now so maybe it will get a little better but I really don't believe it will now that they've become comfortable with all their tricks to make more money

  11. The only time I think DLC should be a thing, is if the game already feels full.

  12. It's a con when you have to pay $60+ then pay double to play everything in the title.

  13. The scummiest move is when they purposely release an underdeveloped game, then the only way to get the full game in all resources and items, for a game you pay $60 for, they force you to pay another $60-80 in “DLC” when in reality its the rest of the game they refuse to include in the main one.

  14. When bungie is a private company so it doesn't have shareholders

  15. Excuse you falcon,I love you,but deadspace 3 was amazing,granted probably the worst of the 3,but still awesome

  16. What about needing Xbox live gold or PS plus to play destiny 2 online even though it’s a free game

  17. Yes, horse armor on launch, ridiculous. IT DID NOTHING!! just do the brotherhood and get shadowmere. Ffs oblivion

  18. “Hi it’s Falcon”

    Immediately hits like

  19. what about black ops 4, in order to buy dlc weapons each one is 20 dollars unless you have the patience to grind 50 reserve crates

  20. Remember horse armor? It almost seems wholesome now doesn't it?

  21. The first Battlefront for the PSP was the best game ever.

  22. I lost a little respect for this channel watching this. No way in hell FIFA isn’t on this list. NO WAY.

  23. Borderlands 3 should be on the list.

  24. The Destiny games were the worst with this, you basically couldn’t continue the game itself if you didn’t buy every expansion. It’s pay to simply continue with the game

  25. Does a time of playing a mobile game and I said to him about the microtransactions and 300 gold cost $126 and 10000 gold cost on the $50 or like what the heck and it said better value another games it's really the other way around all mobile games have microtransactions

  26. Vigor is a cash grab, Dying light was a cash grab, warzone is a cash grab. That’s why I play DayZ. There is no micro transactions.. you wanna git gud? You gotta grind.

  27. That Deadspace comment cracked me up 😂😂😂😂 spot on 👍

  28. yo add hitman 3 that game is a money grab you pay £50 upfront and still have to pay for expansions

  29. Capitalism killing the planet wasn’t enough now its gotta ruin one of the only good things we have left 🙁

  30. Imagine SSBU, but you need to spend $2 to unlock everyone outside the original 8.

  31. Deus Ex: Mankind Divided does not belong on this list. Yes, it's a single player game and yes, it does have microtransactions, but they don't get in the way, they're not necessary and, unlike most games that halt or slow down progression unless you pay in this one you actually have such an excess of experience points that paying for microtransactions would be unproductive, as it'd make an already easy game way easier. Point is, yes, there are microtransactions, but the game isn't balanced towards their use. If you really wanted to put the game on this list you should have talked about the whole deal with the games preorders, that had such a backlash that they had to roll it back.

  32. I really hate how game studios executives treat console games as though they are mobile games. Microtransactions were one of the worst things to ever come to consoles. I'd rather pay $30 – $40 for a DLC pack that gives me new levels and a new story that comes with weapons and skins than to buy in-game currency to purchase stuff. Ubisoft did this crap with AC: Origins and Odyssey. They made the level up grind so tedious that they encourage you to buy xp boosts and crafting materials using currency bought with real money. Uh…NO! GTA Online is really bad with this; the prices of vehicles and criminal businesses are high and after they dropped their first DLC many years ago, they lowered the payouts on missions. Certain features/missions in the game are locked behind multiple layers of purchasing. Example: you have to buy a criminal office in order to buy a cargo warehouse in order to buy a special vehicle warehouse in order to buy the special vehicle. You're looking at an investment of about $10 million GTA bucks and it takes hours to recuperate that cost (for those of us who don't play the game religiously because we have other games we play besides GTA). So Rockstar and Take-Two rely on players to buy shark cards to expedite their in-game purchasing.

    Those loot crates are the second worse thing to happen to games. I just want to unlock stuff by playing the game, not gambling away the currency that I earn from grinding.

  33. A big gripe I have with Destiny is that with every big DLC drop, the developers go in and change the stats on weapons and gear. Players grind to level up their stuff, then a year later everyone's gear and weapons get boosted up to the max level, even those players who maybe play once a month. It essentially erases the effort of those who play the game regularly.

  34. didn't buy any of the games mentioned, i even got a notice that battlefront 2 had a 85% discount, did not buy it, only way of puttin an end to this is by not participating in the industry, by not putting money in these games, i gotta say, i haven't felt like i need to play anything that came after 2015, hell last night i spent 3 hours killing zombies in black ops, from xbox 360, in my xbox one… and the best part, it has a ton of content, and no damn microtransactions were needed

  35. Sims freeplay:you wanna eat? 10 hours
    Sims freeplay:well you can buy 10LP for $10.00
    Me:ok (foolish move)
    Sims freeplay:you wanna eat again? 12 hours but you can buy more LP

  36. Don't use patreon…

    Subscribstar or other alternatives… patron is a rip off and doesn't deserve to exist at this point.
