Stop worshiping these companies

You should take that approach with every company and determine what lines you consider unacceptable to cross when it comes to your willingness to give them your money

Yeah, the only thing that stops a company ripping you off and pissing on you, is whether they think they'll get away with it, or if the profits are worth the costs.

Remember, Valve only offers refunds now because Australia sued them for consumer rights violations and won. And even there they tried to get out of it by saying they're a US company and not required to follow the local laws of where they operate beyond that.

No company has your interests at heart. Only how best to seperate you from your wallet.

Yeah and I also hate when dev's get blamed for the company's mistakes and or greed

stares at CDProjektRed

As a game dev I can say that not only we are not invited to the meetings where questionable decisions are made but that information is often hidden to us to avoid disruption in production. Most of the time we get to know shit about the company we work for from internet.

Who treats them like friends? I treat them like prostitutes. I give them money, they give me fun. Sometimes I regret what I pay for. I hold very little regard for them.

Jesus Christ I just had an image of Todd Howard in a skimpy dress calling to me in a seedy part of town.

Hey you're finally awake. Want to slay a dragon? Only 76 bucks........

ID: h6x6yih

Only 76 bucks........

The Fallout of that purchase still haunts many gamers

Then he lifts his dress and you find that he's brought back a fan favorite... Spears. He whispers in your ear "it just works."

And sometimes they sit in my library for years, without touching them.

... wait, what?

ID: h6xi7fx

“Closet?? No no, my skeletons are in the library, tastefully lounging in various positions in chairs”

ID: h6x5bnb

Yeah, I know exactly what you mean. I have eleven Nintendos chopped up and buried in my backyard.

ID: h6xif3v

And sometimes I love what they put out so much I forget they are just trying to get money out of me.

ID: h6x7aa7

Does that mean some of mine are dirty pirate hookers. They just stumbled out of some shady website and lounge around in my computer. Are they secretly stealing my identity or some shit? I dunno maybe but they sure are fun sometimes

ID: h6xe5iu

Yeah Steam is like Pornhub. I open my library, looking what i wanna watch play, opens something for 3min and close it.

ID: h6xi2b7

You should treat your prostitutes better.

Nintendo helped me move last week and Sony drove me to the airport...

Shigeru Miyamoto himself rocked up to your house and was like "Don't worry bro, I got u"

ID: h6xpwza

He doesn't speak english I think?. So probably he will say something in japanese, and since I always forget his name I will say "I love you Mr. Nintendo".

ID: h6xd077

It's a-me, Sheeegeru! Let's a-gooooooo....

Companies. Just "companies", period. Corporations like this exist for the single and sole purpose of generating profit for their shareholders. It's literally the reason they exist (and also to legally insulate the people who own and run them).

Who tf worships Activision?

Valve is the one that ghosts you and leaves you on read but when he does show up it’s actually pretty cool

It worries me that this post felt the need to list four particular companies.

Is it implying that there ARE companies that are your friend?

They’re companies. They supply products or services in exchange for money. If you’re expecting any more, seek help

ID: h6xaxx9

No it implies that people on reddit give these companies a pass - especially Valve and Nintendo.

ID: h6xen5o

I don't think anyone's really given Bethesda a pass since Fallout 4 launched, and for Blizzard you'd probably need to time travel back to pre-2012 at minimum.

ID: h6xem2g

I'm out of the loop. What has Nintendo done?

9 : Anonymous2021/07/28 20:52 ID: h6vk6qg

You can admire the work a company doesn’t like tendendoes ip’s or valves access accessibility.

Problem is internet people look at things in black and white. If they don’t have a reason to hate or love it it just doesn’t exist to them.

ALL companies.

I‘m gaming on Linux, so Valve is indeed my friend.

ID: h6w9w0v

You game on a Linux. Valve is your only friend

ID: h6wa66e

I‘m in a bubble, a friend of mine also plays on Linux. And my significant other is Overwatch, even though they banned left me, but they realized their mistake after one day.

ID: h6xez95

That said, if my friends turn against me, I‘ll reconsider my friendship ;P

This sub is getting dumber everyday. No wonder many people think gamers are neckbeards.

ID: h6y044a

I guarantee you, it has always been this dumb, and always will be.

Someone’s avoiding the biggest fanboys….

Why is Valve on there and not EA? They’re the worst of all

ID: h6vlc69

Because no one likes EA already

Reddit is hands down the most pretentious place on the internet.

Having to read this crap daily.

ID: h6wue6t

I agree, but I wouldn't say it is exclusive to Reddit. Like, you find this kind of shit constantly on places like twitter too.
