Fellow gamers (what few are on here). It saddens me to see what is happening to the game industry. What am I talking about??? I speak of this online play system. Ive noticed over the past few months that the leading industry in the game world (X box) is pushing the online play issue past my point of comfort. Some of the major game titles this year have been fun to play on an independent system, yet they lack the quality games used to have. They all seemed to be leaning towards the online play system. Dont get me wrong, $50 a year for a online subscription isnt entirely too much, but I like the face to face competition a lot better. I dont think I should have to pay for the game every year I want to play it. Some of the major titles this year Final Fantasy, Halo 2, Star Wars Battlefront have centered maximum enjoyment around this system. Whats next, Grand Theft Auto??? I dont like it . Just thought Id let ya know!
