When Should Devs Just Give Up On a Game?

Both Fallout 76 and Anthem released a little bit of news this week, which made us wonder, at what point should a game just stop trying to save itself? The answer (as it usually is) probably comes down to money.

Questions

DA VINSTER (Vinny): What year in the 2000’s until the present has been the best year in gaming? Whether that be for games, consoles, etc. Each of you can have different answers, of course, doesn’t need to be a consensus. It can also be what was the best year for you.

Kim Cruz: In your opinion, who won this generation console war? How did it win?

Mister Polite: The only time I buy Lego games is when they are super on sale (like under $10). I always love playing them, and I make sure I get every trophy in the game, but there is no way I would pay close to full price on them. So that made me think, is there a game that you love but would only buy if they were on sale?

PanchoPanda: All three of you are at 3 different” haunted houses”. Make your own Scooby-Doo gang including a mascot. One house is haunted by a chef. Another by Bigfoot and the final house by Dylan’s beard. Who are the actual villains in these locations?

Princess_Megan: We are living in a world of microtransactions and multiple deluxe additions for video games, which have you spent the most money on? Was it due to buying an upgraded game package, the in-game transactions, or both?

I have a second one. I’m currently playing the DLC for We Happy Few, and it’s lacking compared to the actual game. This made me wonder if you had to choose between a great storyline with bad gameplay or great gameplay with a terrible storyline. Which would you choose?
