It's not that I can't beat these games as is but I like to play at a chill level from time to time then challenge myself later on.
But since this game doesn't allow you to chill I kept $70 in my wallet and just watched a streamer play.
Pretty sure there's tens of thousands of potential $70 purchases that went *p00f* as well.
I wonder if the decision was really worth it.
I'm not even mad either.
It's not the only game in the world though.
Unless you have some desire to own every single videogame ever I don't think it's a big deal to miss out on one or two because they aren't for you.
I don't do online gaming so I've never touched a Call of Duty or Overwatch etc etc.
Pretty sure there are many people like me. There are dozens of us!
That's them missing out on my money! Silly devs.
I feel like this whole conversation would be easier if people understood the concept of genres.
Then it becomes easier to accept that you don't like some genres but you do like others.
It's a videogame and I like videogames! Reeeeeeee! This videogame has something I don't like!
Just the same as folks who think anything less than 90 on Metacritic is a failure or a disappointment.
Not every game needs to be a world beater and not every game needs to satisfy every single need.
It's slightly hypocritical too since as a community we tend to feel like people who don't want to see violence or sex or whatever in their games are some kind of puritanical, Jack Thompson-esque, censors but we're happy to turn right around and moan because a game has no "chill levels" and that's what we like!
