honestly i think games is better now than it was years ago

there are lovely posts, more or less depending on the thread, but overall people still talk about games and they aren't scared they are going to get probated

its very good IMHO

i would imagine other people agree with you because it's the only subforum that's seen a growth in users/activity/guests opposed to all of the others

Please paywall the thread, Star Citizen forums have a forum you need to pay $10 a month to access, the subscriber forum and another one that you need to have paid $1000 to access, the concierge forums. They are getting all this funny poo poo for free and don't value it, if they had to pay they'll like it much more as that's what they expect.

what you really have to do is offer ban insurance as a limited time offer, then they'll come out in droves to invest in such a great deal

i really wish there were some more Games 'events' or 'projects'

we had the shitposter challenge for a while which I liked a lot, but it can be tough to get people involved

with the advent of free to play games we could probably more reliably do that Games Roulette thing that people used to do in MMO

like we could all goonrush a F2P game for a week or two

I love that it is entirely likely that a game company that has raised close to 100 million dollars is making major business decisions entirely to spite or attempt to discredit Derek Smart.

Seriously, signing a new lease with skeleton staffing rather than confirming rumors/leaks of full branch closure? :wtchris:

I wonder what this looks like the in late game. "Yes finally the fat has been trimmed. All that remains is the sleek efficient muscle of 5 dedicated individuals. Expect to see breakneck progress! After all, Richard Garriot coded Ultima by himself. That was a great game, 5 Garriots = 5x the greatness!!!"

You see, Chris Roberts is a practitioner of homeopathic game development. That's where you take your team of developers, dilute it by 10 times with jpeg concept artists and community managers and video producers, and then throw away 9 parts. Then you take your game engine and dilute it ten times...
