There's been a disturbing trend that's killed off most of my favorite franchises . Essentially focusing on marketing and relying on micro transactions to save a half assed attempt of making a game, which you know is more than possible if the intention was of doing so. Bethesda comes to mind with Skyrim and everything to follow being a glaring example. It was so lazy and half assed with the later entries being even worse. Fable is dead, assassin's creed series same as fallout and elder scrolls, time splitters sadly died, and Phantasy Star not only isn't coming west anymore but is so far from what I'd want that I wouldn't even want it to. Feels so bad man . Is there anything out there worth even looking into or am I better off getting serious with my fitness and / or getting around to finally playing guitar?
