Only Games I Would Break Down and Spend $70 to Play
The Next Generation is here and I'm in it and let me tell you: it's a lot like the other generations. But better! In some very key ways that I genuinely think are transformative.
But you know what legit sucks about this brave new future of play we've found ourselves in?
$60 was already kind of a lot and I'm actually surprised how many games I've bought at that price point over the years. I'm old enough to remember when $50 was the standard and then they all changed it to $60 and I was like "um" but went with it anyway because I'm a slave to capitalism.
But $70? Honestly, I feel like this may be the death knell for AAA game development as we know. I cannot imagine enough people will be willing to drop $70 on fucking ReCore 2: ReCkoning or Knack 3 or some shit. So eventually it'll all boil down to like twenty franchises that come out every year or every two years or something and those will be the only games anyone would spend that kinda money on.
Or more likely everything just comes out on Game Pass or Playstation Plus because that's the only reasonable compromise to this garbage.
Anyway, I decided to wrack my brain and see just how many games I am stupid enough to spend sixty-nine dollars and ninety-nine cents on. It's a small list. And some of them are games that either haven't been announced or just straight up don't exist.
