let's have a heart to heart?

let's have a heart to heart Ganker and put our schizo hats on.
Do all these shills that are defending horrible decisions made by AAA and western studios actually paid shills used by companies to slander anything that comes from asia, indies or any developers that try to do something outside their way of making games?
just look at these recent examples.
>Sony shills actually defending a company taking away a product bought legally by people just for not making a psn account
>Elden Ring being succesful made every dev mad about how Fromsoft did things differently from the usual ubisoft way of making open world
>palworld, a very successful indie game, getting shat on for everything, one of the many things said against it was the lie of them using ai for designing characters, but for foam stars (a triple A Sony exclusive, a game that the devs admitted using ai, there is complete silence.

                it got at least 6 replies in the span of 3 minutes, so don't pretend like it doesn't work. Direct invitations to start a flamewar are obviously going to get replies, but an indirect invitation to have a flamewar (which ironic shilling is) is still extremely effective.

There's no place outside of Ganker that contains the same level of moronation so I'm more inclined to believe that the majority of people here are just schizos pointing fingers at each other calling themselves shills while actual shills are more of a rarity than they'd think. Some anons posted proof so I cannot outright deny it, but I also cannot help but believe they aren't huge in numbers. This board's average user is too much of a baiting moron for me to believe otherwise.

            I started watch nanoha recently for the first time. I really want to like it, but the SoL stuff is so weak. Very minimal character interaction, and too much action. The action is done really well, of course, but good action alone won't prop up an otherwise middling story. Does it pick up in A's?

                I like the action in the I think 3 episodes of A's I've seen so far. But what I really wanted out of A's was maybe like some hijinks with Fate getting acclimated to attending school in our universe. There's like one scene where she gets overwhelmed with questions from her new classmates and that's it.

    The answer to all of this is sour grapes. Mad at Sony for “taking away” a product people shouldn’t have bought to begin with because the game made Sony money, mad at ER succeeding because it made money and challenged the idiot journalist hivemind, mad at Palworld because it made money and made Nintendo look even lazier than usual.
    Yeah there’s probably shills, paid or transitioning, but there’s far more contrarian shitters only complaining because deep down they’re upset the wrong company is making money.

    I think the fact is, as much as we've complained and protested in the last 10 years, nothing has changed and only seem to get worse. For some people they just don't care and just want something to unwind after a work day and aren't hobbyists.

    Some people just feel it's not worth harping on because at this point it feels like demanding a brick wall open up for you. Just gonna stand there for hours and hours and hours, with nothing happening, and the brick wall not giving any shit about what you ask.

    But Ganker only cares when it's political because this place is a shithole.

    It's mostly trolls who want (you)s and enjoy anger. Stop reading twitter-post threads.

    Ganker doesn't have as much power as you think it does. It simply wouldn't be worth it for large companies to shill here. I think it's just contrarians

    There are shills but it's also butthurt devs. Like think about how much of an oversensitive little narcissist Neil Druckmann is. He's already been known to use sockpuppet accounts to defend his shitty games. You think he doesn't do that here too?

    I genuinely think we've reached a cultural Nadir, in terms of video games.
    Note: This isn't directly about "culture" in terms of western culture's influence on video games, but rather video games, as a culture.
    Indie Games vary wildly in their scope, scale and attributes to the point where Indy has become hard to define, the marke tis oversaturdated to capacity with niche titles that are ostensible bloatware or shovelware with a few diamonds in the rough.
    TYhe "AAA" market is absolute dogshit, to put it bluntly. Remakes, remasters and horribly-optimized ports are some of the best sellers. FPS is a dead genre, propped up by COD every year with not an ounce of originality. Blizzard killed Team Shooters and MMOs, MOBAs are cancerous shit-pools that you would need to be medically induced into a state of acute psychosis to derive any pleasure from and strategy games still struggle from being braindead easy with giving the AI cheats to compensate for it being about as intelligent as an average whelk.
    I could go on, there's not one genre out there at the moment that's flourishing. It really does feel like we're in the middle stages of a steady decline in the culture. People aren't excited for video games any more. You don't talk to your friends about how cool the new WoW raid is, or jump on a voice call to play some TF2 or Halo or whatever.
    Then of course there is the bleeding of real life politics into this supposed escape, you can never rest.
    I'm tired of it all.

      It's a direct consequence of the medium growing too large and being regarded as the default hobby of most people. This industry is larger than the music and movie industry combined. I always have to remind myself of how utterly insane that sounds, but it explains everything. You've got a bunch of new age devs being taught in "gaming school" coding your games today compared to passionate nerds back in the day. And everyone and everything is designed to make the line go up. It's to be expected that the video game culture as you said will eventually go down in flames. There's no going back, and there's also no crash coming like some believe. Profits are higher than ever. Have fun.

      Fromsoft games and Zelda still get that level of attention. Also I jump on voice with my friends to play stuff like Deep Rock and Helldivers, smaller games like Forewarned, Stardew, etc all the time.

      But it is absolutely true that much of the "old guard" of big game development has gone to hell or largely disappeared. Consider the recent leak that THPS3+4 was explicitly canceled so they could force the devs to do support work for Call of Duty. American Sony, Xbox, and Activision-Blizzard have destroyed much of what everyone loved about "big budget" games, Konami is dead, Capcom seems to have too many titles in development hell, Sega is similar and even canceled their massive hugely expensive upcoming GAAS flop, Square Enix is probably going to go bankrupt...

      And really, is it any wonder big hyped games are a thing of the past when every game wants to be your only game? If Epic had their way everyone would be playing Fortnite and nothing else for the rest of eternity.

    I don't think companies care about this shit hole anymore, the actual user base is extremely small and most posters are just phonegays or raiders.

    Pic related. I made this absolute trash of a picture just to create chaos and i literally couldn't give a shit about Xbox, forspoken or Tango. It's just clout chasers trying to get a reaction. Stop feeding the trolls and report the threads.

        Bethesda was the publisher. I think it's safe to say that Clover is no more.

    all of it is schizo nonsense
    no one needs to actually pay for shills on Ganker discord trannies will spend the two weeks before and after launch of your game fales
    >Sony shills actually defending a company taking away a product bought legally by people just for not making a psn account
    PSN was assuredly supposed to be required from day one, you can blame Arrowhead for their incompetence and inability to follow their contractual obligations.
    >Elden Ring being succesful made every dev mad about how Fromsoft did things differently from the usual ubisoft way of making open world
    no one complained about that but tons of devs complained about BG3
    , a very successful indie game, getting shat on for everything, one of the many things said against it was the lie of them using ai for designing characters, but for foam stars (a triple A Sony exclusive, a game that the devs admitted using ai, there is complete silence.
    nothing about Foam Stars is "Triple A" and it's your typical low effort Squenix ripoff not a sony game.that game is just flat out garbage in every way, no one talks about palworld either so what's really the difference?
