    The Witcher

    Leaving out legal considerations you could definitely argue that running an ad-blocker is worse than pirating content you that you would not otherwise have paid for. In the case of the ad-blocker you will typically consume resources (bandwidth, server capacity etc) on the end of the content...

    Vampire the Masquerade - Bloodlines sequel? Remake?

    I think this part might partly be because they were cashing in on women with vampire rape fantasies. They certainly had some progressive stuff back in the day, but to me at least it felt like it was balanced out of by a ton of stuff that was not.

    Diablo Immortal

    Exactly. Many mobile RPGs have "auto play"... probably because most players can't be bothered to fight horrible mobile control schemes for any extended period of time.

    Chilling Adventures of Sabrina

    I think the show is reasonably enjoyable... but the SJW stuff is so cringeworthy that I thought it was parody at first.

    Pathfinder: Kingmaker

    The save games are easy to edit. The saves are just renamed .zip files and files that you need to edit inside are text files in JSON format. Companion exp should be in the party.json file.

    World of Warcraft: Shadowlands

    I think garrisons is the first really cool thing they have added in years. They should really have gone with one garrison per server and faction with benefits from each extra character of appropriate level you have though. It starts getting tedious pretty fast when you get a few level 100s...

    World of Warcraft: Shadowlands

    Yeah, I think the way raids interact with the rest of the game is fundamentally flawed. The way it currently works almost everything else becomes obsolete as soon as the first raid opens up each expansion. What would be needed is a system that enables progression outside of raids without having...

    World of Warcraft: Shadowlands

    I think that garrisons were a brilliant move. They are different enough to appeal to people that are tired of the raid grind but still like the world. Guessing most of them will drop off within a couple of months unless Blizzard has some clever plan to keep non-raid content relevant this...

    Archeage

    The downside to this was that most people put their good gear in the bank and never dared to use it. On the plus side this made for more balanced PvP, on the minus side it made gear little more than a PK-tax. After all, what point was there getting that Supremely Accurate Heavy Crossbow of...

    Fires of Heaven - The good, the bad, and the whatever else.

    Yeah. The majority were swedes, but there were a few players from other countries such as Singapore, Iceland, Norway, Denmark, US and Japan as well.

    Archeage

    Not sure why, but I found leveling in Wildstar a lot worse. Mixing questing (with friends) and crafting made leveling quick and painless for me in this game.

    Wildstar Launch Thread - Server: Stormtalon | Faction: Dominion

    I think the thing that has caused the most damage to the MMO genre is transforming raids into a frequent and more or less mandatory activity. Back in EQ and early WoW people outside of hardcore raid guilds did not view all other content as merely a way of gearing up for raids. Getting those Yaks...

    Divinity Original Sin Enhanced Edition

    Or you could play Nethack. It costs $0 and will most likely take you longer to complete than all FF games together.

    World of Warcraft: Shadowlands

    I think the problem is that all other PvE is just intended as a stepping stone to get ready for raiding. As long as this is the case it would not make much sense to make hard non-raid content. Now, if there were viable paths of progression outside of raiding hard non-raid content would have a place.

    World of Warcraft: Shadowlands

    I would even say that most of the people doing LFR never aspire to do any higher difficulty. However, I disagree that this is a bad thing. Blizzard stopped making non-raid content, but LFR has managed to keep many of the non-raiders and super casuals supplied with enough new loot to keep them...
