eheathGames are at an all time peak and still rising, you crazy bruh.
If you don't agree with microtransactions, think about it this way: games for ps1 were like $50-60(even n64 gamer were $50+) full games are still $60, that makes no sense, that's why games have microtransactions. You don't HAVE to buy them, but it certainly adds to the game (DLC, battle pass, whatever) but games should cost $100+
See, I feel like you DO have to buy into most micro-transaction schemes. Otherwise you're really not getting the full experience that they advertised. The way games like C.O.D World at War did it was totally fair. You get the FULL GAME upon purchase, then the map packs are just extras; Non Essential.
A game like GTA Online you either have to buy $$$ to even be remotely involved in their newest update or grind super hard. Which im down to grind, dont get me wrong, but they pay you chump change. You're stuck grinding the same 6 missions for literal DAYS just to get to the same point you would be at if you bought the Shark cards. You dont think thats kinda wack?
The fastest money making method for beginners:
Vehicle Sourcing, but you cant even start that method until you have...
-$1.5 mil (CEO office)
-$1.5 mil (Vehicle Warehouse)
=3 mil (just to start working)
In order to obtain that 3mil you can either:
-Play over 100 Double Money missions (assuming they're offering double money lobbys, which they do alot)
-Spend 50 USD
It's just kinda greedy, especially knowing that rockstar made ALL they're money back in Pre-Orders alone.
