An Open Letter to Video Game Developers and Producers in 2017

Pop Culture Uncovered

Dear Game Makers and Studio Executives,

I love how eager you are to release your new games to us. Heck, we’re excited to play them! I can’t wait to see games like the Final Fantasy XII remake, Horizon Zero Dawn, or Mass Effect Andromeda.

However, when I say, “I can’t wait,” I’m not being literal.

I was quite eager to play Final Fantasy XV, but some new info slammed my excitement into the wall. Not bad reviews (quite the opposite), not all the extras that seem to say “do all this before playing,” but the fact that after ten years of development, the game is not done.

Not. Done.

Final Fantasy XV recently released its first story DLC. The most disturbing word in that sentence? “First.” They’re planning on releasing more story DLC.

They know gamers want the “full story” from their games, and they’ve found a great way to get us to drop $60 on an unfinished game, and then cough up another $30+ for all the DLCs…
