This isn’t the first time we’re saying this, and it definitely won’t be the last- 2018 has been a stellar year for video games. After 2017, many expected that this year would be more of a breather as the console generation gathered itself and geared up for its final, frenetic stretch, but it’s just kept on going. We’ve been treated to a great many landmark releases, the indie industry is stronger than ever before, while VR has also started to show its true potential.

But while things have been getting better on a lot of fronts, there are some ways that the industry either hasn’t taken enough steps forward, or seems to have stagnated, at least for now. In this feature, we’ll take a look at fifteen such examples in 2018 from across the industry that, in spite of all the good stuff, have stuck out like a sore thumb.





  1. 3. “Activision” Blizzard. 2. Bethesda. 1. E.A.

  2. i laughed out loud as soon as i heard MGS Survive

  3. Top this list off with the most important thing…Gamers as a whole can make our voices heard!!

  4. Good stuff lol ok. Gaming as a whole has become a joke.

  5. ACO‘s episodic dlcs are an add on to over 200 hr gameplay. I started the first one after 230 hr played (platinum and every spot discovered).
    The microtransactions in ACO are nothing to be compared to EA. Nobody needs to use the shop. There are tons of legendary items in the base game. Depending on the playstyle the base game items are even better. The shop is for fun and the prices are ok. I have no problem spending 3 bucks on an amazing looking armor if it’s completely optional and added value.
    Ubisoft did a freaking good job with ACO. Don’t let them look like Bethesda, Activision or EA. I don’t want to see them going that way.

  6. Nintendo are the biggest innovators in gaming. How they can’t grasp online boggles the mind.

  7. Massive install size is an acceptable things.. because its a huge games.

    There’s a difference between 20GB games and 60GB games.. RDR2 got 90GB installment size cause the world itself is amazingly huge. So I don’t think you should put that on your list.

    Then again, its my opinion

  8. In early 2018, my 2 favorite franchises were Battlefield and Fallout…..smh.

  9. Sooo… 25 dollars are too much for 5 new fighters, 5 new stages and new music tracks ? Why does this sound like a complain to Nintendo just because it's done by nintendo ?

  10. I agree with the list, though I kinda expected Fallout 76 bag to be first. That's the biggest scam I've ever seen in gaming collection material.
    As of the rest- valid points on patches, but I disagree with game size. As tech develops, graphics become better. With most of textures at 4K or maybe even higher quality, size goes up considerably. I will not do the math here for You, but as a person who has experience with programming and game development, I can assure You that the size of the game will always be a trade-off for better quality. Anything apart from textures can be a myriad of different sizes, also it heavily depends on the scale of the game itself. Some creation engines also use outdated packaging functions such as the engine on which Payday 2 was made, hence the size of each update and initial download.

  11. Well at least if you buy Forsaken the previous DLCs are included

  12. Holy sheet Ranton game reviews are soo funny! LOL

  13. You know, I'd give the whole "canvas/nylon" bag situation a pass if it was something done by indie developers who either overestimated the material cost or consumer interest. In this case, however, we're talking about FUCKING BETHESDA. That is UNACCEPTABLE for a AAA gaming company.

  14. How to easily milk a cash cow called Google Adsense in 2018/19:
    – Make a video about Fallout 76.
    – Jump onto the hate-hypetrain and hate on it, even if you didn't even play it yourself and don't know shit about it.
    – Come up with rumors that at the end every sane player would hate like lootboxes, even if there are none.
    – Downvote everyone who has a different opinion than you and make your fanboys go apeshit if he dares to be rational and reasonable with your content.
    – ???
    = Profit!

  15. 1.This forced death march into "online-only" multiplayer games. Multiplayer game is just another way to describe troll farms with microtransactions, bad story, no effort, little immersion and fake "online" friends. Give me a break.

  16. Sad that episodic dlc shit is the reason why I'll never buy that Hitman game .. Shame because I think the game is gud but .. Episodic releases .. MY MAN .. THAT'S NOT THE TYPE OF SHIT I GREW UP ON … I PAID IN FULL I EXPECT MY GAME IN FULL .. So

  17. Funny .. People complain about these things but it don't stop y'all from still buying shit .. Shame on y'all

  18. It's like i would've basically watched a ton of past jimquisitions patched in to a single episode.

  19. #16 Game developers need to go back to including a manual with their games. Especially with RPG type games.

  20. FALLOUT 76 IS A GREAT GAME, YOU GET TO PLAY FALLOUT ONLINE!!!!!!!!!! I always wanted that.

  21. Fallout 76 and Just Cause 4's Live Action Trailers have meaning, meaning to their creators, and meaning to me.

  22. Sorry, I don't get #13… I don't mind the devs and pubs making their DLC episodic… If you have 3 different stories you want to add, is it then a bad thing that they want you to focus on one at a time?? The way you put this makes it seem that you're just saying that you want the DLC straight away with the game… I mean, how about titles like The Witcher 3, Resident Evil 7, Dark Souls 2-3, Far Cry 5 or Borderlands 2??

  23. Still, I've never seen a game more premature hyped than Diablo III

  24. Fallout's Power Armor's head looks like Stormtrooper.

  25. I live in Kurdistan I always have early access to games 😂 sometimes. Two weeks before release

  26. Bethesda Jumping on the, "Lets make the fans pay for the second half of our new game's development" Bandwagon.

  27. I hate dlc very much but for smash I can live. The game is finished and big roster more than SF v current state and smash have a lot licensing characters that cost money.
    Even Nintendo give respect to other franchise like castlevania that Konami couldn’t.

  28. rdr 2 takes over 1 hour to install – without patches ..

  29. I hated that Walmart Canada leaked some of the bigger announcements and ruined E3 for myself.

  30. I don’t see a problem with games having large install sizes. Sure it’s annoying when red dead 2 takes 7 hours to install but I would rather have a huge install and ample content than the opposite.

  31. I dont know political is GamingBolt, but what pissed me off the most this year is catering to SJW retarded demands, distorting the truth in a supposedly historical game, and calling loyal fans uneducated for pointing this out. Yes im talking about this idiot from EA who offended fans, about BF5, and fiasco of its sales (seems like it bothered more uneducated people). I dont know how could you miss that, unless you wanted to deliberately.

  32. Gaming bolt. I'm looking for you to notice me. I have an idea for a video but I want to know that you care about your comments to respond before I throw an idea out there.

  33. So that destiny 2 thing is just a blatant lie lol. You absolutely can ply forsaken without the other two. They allow for a level jumping option to get yourself to the correct place for the forsaken campaign. You just can’t access the two locations from the other dlcs. And if they were disappointments then that should be totally fine that you don’t play them lol

  34. forsaken isnt worth any money. same shit as others

  35. Hood Ninjaichi Gaming and Entertainment says:

    NBA live 18 and 19 has 0 microtransactions

  36. I disagree with Ultimate's DLC package: Each individual piece is roughly $5. How the HELL is five DLCs worth $25 overpriced?!?

  37. Brilliant, this is why I Only brought Spiderman red dead and Jurassic park , and i used to spend hundreds each year and would be and avid Fifa player skipped it this year probably wont go back

  38. from the perspective as a PC gamer the industry is (has been) going in some worrying directions.

  39. FF7 remake will never come out EVER. They have been working on that shit since ps2

  40. Bethesda employee… guys this shit is not done we need at least another year.
    Bethesda CEO… fuck that shit sell it anyways, gamers will play anything.

  41. majority of the list was encroached by EA and Fallout 76

  42. People upset with Bethesda because they spent 200 bucks on a bag that came in the wrong material. Not pissed at all that spent 200 dollars on a FUCKING BAG. Morons.

  43. Don’t announce games, just release them.

  44. And all I want is a open world game of thrones game. Like red dead redemption 2 but game of thrones .

  45. nintendo using the same fucking games with the same fuckig characters over and over and fucking over again!
