That's playing the same game. But buying another version of pretty much the same game every year and repurchasing the micro transaction and whatever cosmetic crap that don't carry over. I dunno about that man. But then why do I care. Haha

Oh you mean like buying FIFA or COD or AssCreed or Far Cry year after year... but to be fair they do offer something new eg new story campaigns. Sure the formula might be the same, but still there's something new no? Those sports franchises are moving away from yearly releases already. Most fans buy the yearly releases for the new rosters no choice, but now with the new models they can update the rosters online eg FIFA Ultimate Team.

Is there a game franchise that's the same release after release?
Happy 40th birthday to me! 7000th trophy and 130th plat - Batman Arkham Knight!

only speaking about COD and sports games, not saying AC. they are still reusing the same asset and tweaking things here and there vs a brand new game, new IP, new lore build from ground up like CV. but i guess gamers generally dont like new stuffs.

i guess they focus more effort on how to milk gamers with MT like how they wanna show everyone what items other players get when they open lootboxes to entice people buying more lootboxes. or how when one player killed another player, they will immediately show the player being killed what weapons was used and point them to purchase that, and etc.

no lah, sport games are still annual full price release. why would they go that expansion route when they are still getting good sales from the current business model?

so sometimes i feel like ppl like AJ and Jim F sterling are fighting a lost cause. this kinda things are basically caused by gamers, the companies are basically just doing whatever based on the data that they have. but of course sometimes they are pushing the bar further though. end of the day, it takes 2 hands to clap.
