What’s The Poorest Excuse You’ve Seen In Defence Of A Bad Practice?
As gamers we’ve seen some pretty ludicrous practices in our time, especially in the previous generation as casual gaming boomed and mobile games became the gaming central for those creatures. Of course, as publishers became more greedy too. Many reasons, many practices.
Now, it’s one thing to know about all the bad practices out there, but let’s bypass that a little and think about something else. Namely, what are some of the poorest excuses you’ve seen developers, publishers or even gamers make in defence of a bad practice?
- You’ll Be Able To Play (Expensive) PS2 Games On Your PS4 Now | 2 months ago
- Jessica Jones Disempowers Its Male Characters And The Effect Is Refreshing | 2 months ago
- Hell Is 30 000 Deathclaws Tearing Through Boston And It’s Glorious | 2 months ago
- Sony Santa Monica Is Teasing Something Truly Strange | 2 months ago
For example, recently I saw a gamer defend Games for Gold by saying that it gave him or her the opportunity to play old games he or she may have missed. However, while this may individually be a nice thing, the reasoning was flawed because firstly an old game usually has a very low cost, so if you didn’t pick it up in the years since its release and you didn’t pick it up when the price went really low, chances are you never really wanted it that much in the first place. Secondly, what about everyone else who doesn’t want old games? Anyway, I digress.
Can you think of a really crappy excuse a gaming industry human or average joe has made in defence of a poor practice?
In before Don Mattrick’s “buy an Xbox 360” comes to mind.
