So in the "News" section of this forum there is an interesting post by PC Gamer, covering an interview with the Obsidian games CEO. In this interview he claims that large Skyrim type sandbox games are a pain; and goes on to complain about paying the salaries of all his workers... You know... The guys that MAKE everything that his company sells.
Sooooo... According to Wiki, Skyrim alone sold 10 million copies at $50-$60 in the first 30 days of release. That's like half a billion dollars. How much money do these capitalist pigs need?
I've said it before, and I'll say it again. The hostile takeover of the gaming industry, by the giant corporations is what's destroying todays gaming. Everything they get their hands on turns into a bucket of crap. The moment they gained control over the big players in the industry, the focus of game companies changed from creating games, to creating profit.
Now it's just an industry that reaches into the next mans pocket.
