Re: Talking Point: Nintendo Has Embraced DLC, But Must Resist The Worst Industry Norms

@Ziggy93 The problem I have with Laws controlling our behaviors, other that that stated in the statement =P, is where do we stop. A lot of things can be addictive. There are soda taxes and laws against having too big of a carbonated beverage. Should we regulate what and how much we eat as well?

Its entertainment. Not a necessity. That makes regulating it an even worse idea.

My biggest things is we as people refuse to allow others to suffer the consequences of our own bad decisions. We are so quick to say I think its bad so lets make it bad for everyone. Or "what about the children". At some point we need to be accountable for ourselves.

This doesn't mean stop offering places to help those that take it to far or not help out you neighbor. Just stop making laws that demand it.

@Ziggy93 Having them legislate video games is a slippery slope that can have a lot of unintended consequences.

@Crono1973 It's not even that I disagree that it is ruining gaming but gamers allowed and forced it to happen. I have stated in another thread we want bigger better games. Well, production cost are up, people like to get raises and make more money. I am sure shipping and storage have gone up. Something to balance this was inevitable.

@Shinnos I am with you on that. Reading the review I figured it would have walked away with a 9. BotW had frame rate issues and still managed a 10.

I get these are just numbers but when the words don't line up with the final score it makes me feel that something is missing.

My kiddos and I enjoyed the demo. My biggest problems are that I would have to buy a copy for each of our Switches if we are going to be able to level up all our gear. That wouldn't be too bad if I didn't feel that the game is a little over priced.

Still might get this for a multiplayer game for us.
