  1. Activision’s flagship game Destiny is basically this whole video. They basically took half the game out and released it in DLC. The trailers too were so way off the actual game. Even remember one of the developers saying “in destiny, if you can see a place, you can go there” not realising that you actually can’t, and it will be released in DLC later.

  2. Most of this can be avoided by just being a smart consumer, also by playing older games that have stood the test of time.

  3. I enjoyed watching these videos but as soon as you start dissing consoles that’s where I stop watching.My Ps4 pro is awesome and I met my wife playing ghost recon 2 on Xbox 360.

  4. And this is why you get a relatively cheap pc and play indie games and games from generations past, generations when games were made with love for the game not love for money.

  5. About a quarter of this stuff is actually true. Some of it is subject to opinion, and the rest is just wrong for jokes

  6. This is so true. Just look at all the dudes who buy the next shooter game even though they have a crap ton of them already played.

  7. I feel like Neo waking up fromt the Matrix. Thank you Roger for waking me up to the truth of what I've been wasting 16 years of my life on 😥

  8. Why did I immediately want a Nintendo switch after watching this lol.. all their games were finished twenty years ago

  9. The best part is everyone of you will still do whatever it is he sarcastically talks about in his videos in spite of a blatant warning saying your being scammed and robbed.
    The kicker, some of you thinks he’s seriously selling a product and your wondering why there’s no link so you google it to find out. 😃
    America and our capitalism. Yeah it’s awesome

  10. I admit it, I'm a gamer, have been one for years (when I was a kid Atari was "high tech"!) Can't play first person shooters anymore without getting a headache, but if you need a puzzle solved I'm your game girl ✊

  11. This is why I don't buy new videogames anymore. Gave it up long ago. Also, I noticed most of the newer games were too easy, and the only improvement was the graphics and sound, the games themselves weren't more fun or better designed etc. Most are too damned simple, all you need is the IQ of a chimpanzee and you're good. Remember gentlemen, you are not gamers, you aren't intelligent enough for that!

  12. I don’t get why people are mentioning PC gaming when it doesn’t change preordering, micro transactions, paid DLC, and unfinished games. This isn’t even including the whole mess with epic games buying exclusives and forcing people on their crap platform or the developers of shenmue 3 lying to their customers and back peddling to avoid having to give out refunds which would probably cost them a lot of money which in context they basically stole. Yup, idk it’s going to shit everywhere not just on consoles.

  13. Everybody: Dude if all of this stuff will damage me why don't I just try and eat things that actual are healthy

    Rodger: Healthy? Wheeze You must not know about the food industry. They process everything! Even the air you breath.

  14. As someone who grew up with the what are now retro games and systems, it's really disheartening to see what became of the game industry. Oh well, such is usually the end result when you make a deal with the devil by going corporate.

  15. This man is my spirit animal af. I picked up on this pattern after PS3 was over with. Dabbled with Xbox One a bit then sold it went to PC. Now I don't even play games anymore, I turned my gaming addiction into a money addiction.

  16. Computer all the way 😂👌… Dont like consoles. Least i can play on both consoles. Many of us dont even know that 😂

  17. He didn't change my mind, lol. Games are fun. It's a business, for sure, but as consumers…face it, we're entertained.

  18. In all things considered this channel is extremely nihilistic. Like, extraordinarily nihilistic. Though it points out seemingly obvious facts for the laymen to understand (which is great), it is nonetheless extremely depressing.

  19. the reasons why i play my ps2 and wii still because i know all these other suckers are getting ripped up the ass and out the mouth for shit that will get them nowhere in life. ever…and hell…i have a job and a life…i dont really have time for games anyways

  20. If gta 5 was made by EA I'm sure in 2014 there would of been a trailer for gta 6 with a pre order of $60 5 years later… I'm I can't believe it's been 6 whole years since gta 5 been released still my favorite game gta 6 will hopefully be insanely better than gta 5 and the map may be way bigger and graphics undistninguisable from real life. It might be released in like 2 or 3 years since read dead is done. I will probably get it on a PC for better performance over console

  21. I think the other honest ads are good and they are funny, but come on. I dont think you know enough about this one. The one thing that i do agree with is that games are released unfinished

  22. F*k all video game consoles,I’m camping outside of Best Buy on Black Friday for a wristband to be the first to own a Horton’s brand electric brick 4!!!!!

  23. All i can think of when I hear all this is Microsoft with the micro soft penises in hand selling they're 150$ controllers.

  24. "The only real innovation happening in games now is centered around sales!"…
    Holy shit, it's like these guys know what they're talking about
