        but early access is bad

        sorry you missed out on hidden gems like Ark Survival Evolved before the content bloat and balance changes fucked everything up. That game was 10/10 in early access. some of the most fun i ever had in an online game.

        how to avoid early access: dont buy early access

        You’re low iq. the sole fact that devs are allowed to try to sell unfinished games sets the bar so low for the video game industry in general. Why would devs ever finish a game when they can half ass it and sell an unfinished product

          AAA devs have been doing the exact same for the past 10 years and it only gets worse each year because people can’t stop pre-ordering garbage.

            90% of EA games are same as "fully released games" that are only playable after 28 DLCs and bug fixes. It was same before with expansions. HOMM3 is GOAT and it was shit before the last expansion, random maps etc.

            The difference is before early access devs faced a shitstorm if they released an unfinished game and it would be in the 25 cents bargain bin within a week. Now, thanks to early access it’s pretty much normalized it and there’s no incentive for them to put any effort in.

              I’m not sure which is the chicken and which is the egg in this situation. It could be that AAA devs lowered people’s standards enough with their shitty DLC practices that people became willing to buy literally unfinished games. Although, I suspect both things sort of fed in to one another.

        the fact that the early access tag exists is a good thing because that means it can be filtered out
        if there was no early access support the games would just be listed as any other game despite being unfinished

      What should be banned from steam is people who make early access games and treat them like kick starters. If you don’t have the means to finish your game then get off of steam.

      Early Access has been good for certain games, namely the ones made by developers who just don’t have the money for proper testing and who intend to make a niche game without any pretensions about it.

        There’s only one early access game I’ve seen/played that I thought is still worth my time and that’s Squad and it was practically feature complete long before 1.0 game out and it has continually gotten worse since 1.0

      I bet you preorder AAA trash as well. If you can’t look at a game’s progress and immediately tell if the devs are serious or not you deserve to have your money stolen. I have only ever purchased one Early Access game and it turned out great because there was already a huge chunk of gameplay available. What it does in the right dev’s hands is allow them to dedicate more resources and/or time to their game and make it better. Bottom line though is that you don’t have to buy it before it is out.

                  the reason EA exists is to give give devs funds to produce a game. When people invest into EA project they expect a finished product eventually, its not a donation. This cucked attitude of thinking that you are not entitled to a product you pay for is exactly why there are so many scams on steam and kickstarter. And the reason steam doesnt do anything about this is because its easier for them to not do anything and just shift the blame onto the consumer

                        I’m not defending anything you fucking moron. I understand what is being offered and choose whether or not I want to partake on a case by case basis. I read reviews on games in EA and see if they get updated regularly and on the rare chance I get burned, I leave a review saying so.
                        I’m also an adult with disposable income so it’s not really a big deal if I lose $20 because a game died in EA after I put a couple dozen hours in. if it bothers you so much, pirate EA games. I don’t fucking care.

                      Literally every single person that is even familiar with the concept of early access, let alone uses it, thinks of it as buying in early to something that the developers intend to finish and will make a good faith effort to do so. In fact, that’s even in the name itself. "Early access" makes it pretty fucking clear that there is supposed to be more to come. So no, it isn’t advertised as being sold as is. In order for that to be the case it would, at the very least, need to be renamed.

                        you can screech and cry all you want but there’s a big blue warning label on every single early access game telling you exactly what to expect from the program. it’s no one’s fault but your own for not reading and acknowledging it before you buy. it’s not even hidden fine print.

                        I guess I have to make it explicitly clear. I have never bought and will never buy an early access game. And I’m pretty sure the same is true for the other guy in here also pooping on early access.

        Agreed. And like anything, early access or not, you have to be pragmatic before you buy. What do current reviews say? What are current threads on the forums saying? How often are the developers putting out updates? How many are on the development team and what’s their track history like? What kind of game is it and is it fitting for the team size? How much money is the game? What do you specifically want out of the game? I ask these questions before buying any game, because otherwise I’d deserve to lose my money for being an impulsive buyer.

      I would 100% agree on principle but one of my favorite games, factorio, went through early access on steam. so I guess, like anything else, there’s some good and some bad. just use your brain instead, don’t buy early access games unless you do your research and are sure you’re getting the value for your money.

      I supported factorio,starsector, prison architect, space engineers,dyson sphere program, empyrion, and rimworld. The trick is to try before you buy to make sure that you like the current version of the game enough to buy it. I ended up putting hundreds of hours into these over the years.

      If you pirate an EA game and it’s shit don’t fucking buy it. Beware of any EA over $30

      There should clear and strict rules for EA games. Stuff like the devs have to give an actual release date and release content when they put the game on EA, and if the devs then fail to meet those goals everyone can just refund the game.
