Why Are So Many Games Shutting Down? | Hot Topic

Here today, gone tomorrow. This rule could apply to many free-to-play online games and we’re not talking about the bad ones only – more and more quality games are shutting down due to a few factors, but it looks like the larger studios aren’t interested in sticking up with a game and making it grow. That’s why games such as Rise of Incarnates, Dawngate or Infinite Crisis all prematurely shut down, among others. Do you think this is a trend?

    This is simple…. PEOPLE DONT HAVE MONEY .. for DLC and MACRO-TRANSACTIONS … and devs dont get it .. and over reaching ..asking for money for founder packs .. like 17.99 euro/usd for NOTHING or 89.99 euro/usd who has such much money … and this not the end .. i remember the times of atarii xl 800 .. amiga .. where Game Company paid players to test they product beta testers .. there where free DEMOS .. u buy the game and u could enjoy it to the fullest .. now u buy the game and u hit that DLC wall or Micro(MARCO) transaction … GAMERS REVOLUTION IS NEEDED …

      Get a job. I work minimum wage, and pay rent in a place with no roommates. I still can afford the highest tier of most founder packages for whichever game I’m interested in. Just don’t blow all your money on booze and smokes. [If you’re even old enough for either..]

      dont blame him for swearing. start paying attentions to what your kids are viewing or set up a child internet protection software.

          I think your attitude is getting a bit over the top, like enraged or something. Please contain yourself and if you don’t like our content, in the shape it is, just don’t watch it. Don’t watch anything on TV, movies, and shut down the internet as there are curse words everywhere. Kids learn curse words when they’re 5, and I’m pretty sure it isn’t here.

          So please calm down a bit already.

            I do have to agree with you on this video, I feel like there are too many bad games that are still alive, compared to the better games being closed. Kind of ridiculous that there are so many games failing before they even launch though.

          I personally feel that if he has permission to put a video on their main site then it should contain whatever content he wishes it to contain, but I can say that there should be a “Mature language” warning message put in the description somewhere.

    i do Agree with about half of what your saying.I play a carp load of new game every month just trying to find the right game for me. To me there only will ever be one true game to me and that was lineage 2. they did that right. All there gaming companies need to understand no game will ever last if they stick up to many MTA paywalls. like really cant hold stuff bc ,i have like 10 spaces to carry stuff ect..Being unique doesn’t mean they will be good so might as well shut them down. About 95% of games you listed in video i have never heard of: so they need to learn to advertising better for starters. Alot of these new games really have no thought but into them. Yea just go make a clone of a game 4 months after launch they shut down bc they added in some ridiculous paywall to get any enjoyment.These companies are just wasted time and money,and i am pretty sure they are loosing money on these clones. So why do it. now i am not hatting on clones or anything. cant be that hard to do a LoL clone and add your own little spin on it. like adding more and new zone and more zones, don’t just focusing on just the 5v5 matches with 3 lanes try maybe 6v6 ect. Now i didn’t play a lot of these games that where mention so i really cant put my 2 cents in on why theses games are shutting down. these companies need to get real gamer that play the game and and use their input on there games. people are getting smarter and not wasting money on dead end games or after 2 mins in game to find out it just a p2w type game or load you up with paywalls that games dont make it pass their first 6 months. I can go on and on, on how to make a improve their games and able to keep old and new costumers to stay in their games.
