It's technically the publishers forcing the developers to include all this nonsense since the gameplay is usually fine at its core.

Microtransactions aside, they're still a hell of a lot better than most Japanese games these days.

I guess if you're not playing games to have fun
agreed. whenever someone tries to argue that western games are better, it's always old ass games from 2 decades ago that are brought up to support their argument

I honestly don't think the divide even really exists anymore. 

Dark Souls is a western game, yet has more in common with western RPGs than it does with JRPGs. I'm sure there are games that go the other way, too.

Western games have been shit for the past 10 years, yes. I prefer Japanese games for a reason.

I given up on JRPGs sometime ago, but other than those I just see a lot of games where they are nothing but teenage girls with enormous boobs doing cute and sexy things.

Why would you pay for any of the more expensive editions if you just want the single player?

The fuck? Japanese games do the same thing, except their big money maker is selling tons of costumes for money. I haven't spent a cent on any Western microtransactions.

There is nothing wrong with costume DLC

Loot boxes, however, are just plain gambling and should be illegal

What is this, the PlayStation board? All that goes on over there are kids arguing about Western devs and Japanese devs and pointlessly shitting on each other's opinion regarding that subject matter.

I, *gasp*, tend to enjoy both if the games themselves are actually good.

Shit like this is why I don't look forward to games anymore. Half life 3, Left 4 Dead 3, Kingdom Hearts 3, etc. 

I enjoyed the hell out of the prequels to these but I know when they release sequels there's gonna be so much micros. If I pay $60.00 for a game, it should have everything included.

Because what used to be unlockable in games through just playing it you now have to just buy.

Hah, yeah. Odyssey is going to put every shitty Western publisher to shame. It has Amiibos, but no real content is locked behind them. Everything unlockable is unlockable just by playing the game itself. And it's going to succeed because it's a damn good game, not because it tries pathetically to extort consumers.

Fuck every publisher that prioritizes shitty business practices over good game design.

Microtransactions motivate bad design choices. Fewer unlockables are unlocked through actual gameplay, because why not just charge real money for them? And why release a complete game when you can just lock story content behind season passes? Obviously these design choices have long-term consequences, but greedy publishers are too inept to consider the long haul.

That kind of shit is why a game like Undertale, which was made by a neckbeard in his mom's basement, is better than most "AAA" games released today.

*Cleans old guys glasses*
Back in my day there were these things called 'arcades' where you had to pay a quarter any time you wanted to play a game, and if you died, you had to pay more quarters! 

It was such garbage, too. They just took all the content and locked it behind a paywall. If you want to win, you have to keep paying them. Each player even had to pay just to play multiplayer. Such sneaky bastards!
