Business rule- never give more if customer accepts less.

customer picks up a chancla "Are you sure about that?"

Fail in this case. Instead, they earned the stigma of having produced a meme-factory of a product. It's sort of like how everyone is going to be veeery cautious about the next Bethesda Fallout. Business folly: There are limits to how far you can ride on your reputation.

No they wont. They will say "It's my money, none of your business if I pre order or not. I was going to buy it anyway."

Why would you give yourself such high expectations.

As a long time Red Dead Online player, they've been disappointing me for years.

ID: hkhir4w

Man I remember the days of us hyping up any new update just to get mediocre clothes and discounts

ID: hkhj41j

... Are those days passed..?

ID: hkhngkn

Oh god, you just gave me flashbacks to the infamous "summer update" wait, where we went like half a year with no new content in the game, then they promised a huge update during summer and everyone went mental.

Rockstar then released the update on THE very last day of summer when most people were back at college/uni/work, completely pissing off the entire fanbase.

Ahh the good old days, at least we had hope then.

ID: hkhh637

As another person who played since day 1 of the red dead online beta, I agree. Rockstar games has a solid history of railing their fans up the butt, it's just the GTA fandom never saw it like we did lol.

Welcome, GTA brothers and sisters, now you know how it feels.

Stop playing the online versions of their games and maybe they will invest more into the single player versions?

ID: hkhr2le

That ship sailed my man and it’s never coming back. They tapped into a market that was infinitely more lucrative than just single player games and they will die before going back.

That’d be a full out remake at that point

ID: hkhpkw7

Can’t even tell if OP is serious or not. I sure hope not.

I was expecting them to look like GTA V which is 10 years old at this point, and at the time was developed for hardware that was already around 3-5 years old. I would’ve been fine with them looking like ~12 year old games and running like new. Instead they look like 20+ year old games and run like 20+ year old games. Which is laughable and embarrassing.

ID: hkhptsm

Well actually the originals play & look better in a lot of areas. This version is based off the mobile phone port, and has MORE bugs than the original release. It's so bad.

ID: hkhsubf

That would be a remake as well. Remaster means you take what you have and make the graphics slightly better and in 1080p or 4k resolution and 30-60fps if the original had less than that. And if possible make the controls better.

They made 2 of 3 of these things. Look at all other remasters. No remaster ever jumps much in graphics/art design. Because you take what you have and update it a little.

It's also in movies and music as well. If you want a James Bond Golden Eye remaster. They don't reshoot the whole film but update the visuals and sounds if they have the raw material. Music remasters aren't re recorded. They just take the raw files and make a new master "remaster" if it was re recorded then it would be called re recorded.

Hate it or leave it. The janky controls are the same janky controls as the original San Andreas because it is the same base game with slightly better optics.

If you have to remodel everything from the ground to meet GTA 5 standards then you have already a remake. Because they re-make the whole thing.

ID: hkhrkt7

People still dont know the difference between remaster and remake

ID: hkhqx8j

also that would be 60 bucks for each game of the trilogy and not 60 for 3 games.

Nobody expected this lol

Wait this isn’t a parody post?

ID: hki1stp

literally "NINTENDO HIRE THIS MAN" bullshit being posted

ID: hkhh3lg

Seriously, these delusional, karma-whoring posts are getting on my nerves. There are definitely legitimate complaints about the remastered trilogy (cartoonish art style, lack of fog, performance issues, etc). But anyone expecting a FF7 remake level of work for all 3 full games are insane. Especially for $60…

ID: hkhkcrd

Just popping in to say that as a game dev, these posts are giving me an aneurysm.

Yes rockstar truly, truly underdelivered and there was some serious lack of testing, but some of these posts are absurd.

ID: hkhxum3

Just saw a post labelling people who say “your expectations were too high” as rockstar bootlickers lmao. Not sure why people were thinking it’s realistic of a remaster to be either GTA V or nextgen level remakes

6 : Anonymous2021/11/13 18:09 ID: hkhdnkp

That would take 10 more years

ID: hkhoahm

Yes and much more money

7 : Anonymous2021/11/13 18:16 ID: hkhenhv

You must not know the difference between a remaster and a remake then

8 : Anonymous2021/11/13 19:08 ID: hkhlsqj

You act like they didn’t show you what cj looked like before purchasing.

9 : Anonymous2021/11/13 18:22 ID: hkhfgx1

Lol. Manage your expectations a bit better.

ID: hkhm3yw

or literally watch any of the trailers before you buy the game. At no point did rockstar indicate the game would look anything like the right image.

ID: hki85ea

yeah this is literally someone seeing an artist rendition doing some stuff for fun and going "OMG THE GAME IS GONNA LOOK LIKE THIS"

cmon now people get some media literacy

10 : Anonymous2021/11/13 18:29 ID: hkhgdlw

Lmao it's a remaster of a ps2 game. Why the fuck would you expect that? It's not a remake

11 : Anonymous2021/11/13 18:28 ID: hkhgai3

Not to defend what they put out, but I hope you didn't seriously expect that. They mentioned when it was revealed that they weren't changing the art direction.

12 : Anonymous2021/11/13 18:57 ID: hkhk9nq

That's a remake. Entirely new asset. Remaster is an updated or altered version of the original.

Should a remaster cost $60? Probably not. Should you have bought it sight unseen? Probably not.

Edit: also it's $60 for three remastered games.

Do you know what remaster means?

15 : Anonymous2021/11/13 19:30 ID: hkhotyy

Gta 5 doesn't even have that haha. Your expectation and demands are way too high for something they just released for a quick few bucks in order to calm the gta6 crowd and delay it more.

ID: hkhz2bn

$60 for 3 games total made almost 20 years ago each and you'd think people were expecting gta 5 levels of everythin

18 : Anonymous2021/11/13 18:30 ID: hkhgjtq

Deserved ..? I get that some people aren’t perfectly happy with the remaster, but it’s a product… not something you’re entitled to.. that 60$ isn’t ripped off of your account, it’s a price you pay if you want, that’s it. We don’t « deserve » perfect games like we imagine, we get them or we don’t. They don’t owe you anything

ID: hkhqeqz

There's also the option to wait until it comes down in price, but some people apparently can't wait for that. I'm not buying it until it gets to $30 or less. Nowadays games don't even take very long to drop significantly and by then they'll likely have fixed some things.
