I don’t really know how it happened. I guess I just got sick of the Phillies being so great in MLB 2K10 that I had to set it aside and find something else to play. Needless to say, a few quick games of Team Deathmatch and I was hooked on Call of Duty all over again.
Then I come across this video over at Giant Bomb. Sure, it turns out that it’s fake, but it makes me wish all the more that some publisher would just get the guts to go to a subscription model or straight up DLC already. I’m sick and tired of buying games that are more or less identical to the previous year with the exception of a roster move or a new logo or a new map. I’m willing to pay good money for something I won’t regret selling off a year later when it’s worth zilch. Charge me say $40 to buy the new game without all the packaging. The Earth would be better off without all that noise anyway.
Unless someone figures out how to charge less for games outright, which seems unlikely, there are probably some well known franchises that I’ll never buy again. I’m looking at you, Madden.
