From the amount of hatred and false paranoia I've experienced in Steam forums for other games other than Steam it makes me curious why people hate multiplayer games so much. I'm finding that the hatred for multiplayer in certain open world games is similar to how people hate zombies that it's far more baffling on the mulitplayer side. The whole toxicity, the whole flame baiting, triggering, and wanting to argue saying people desiring multiplayer are "ruining singleplayer games". I'm really trying to figure out this root of the cause as to why people are so paranoid of multiplayer that it makes me wonder if anybody in the Rising World community is "anti-multiplayer" in the same fashion that we have "flat-earthers" living on this planet. I guess micro-transaction is to blame in AAA games (i.e Battlefront 1 & 2) that it just ruins everything. More love is being put into micro-transactions while trying to separate people from one another and their money in online environments.
As silly as Jimquisition is, I do have to agree with his certain points that I also want to mock and burn AAA games for constantly lying and stealing from their community. Taking things for granted by trying to keep to the same re-hashed' formula time and again. Simply look at Pokemon gameboy games that stay the same with little change to each game.....
I ended up playing Minecraft because of how vastly different it is from all the other games that I felt that an open world is where games should be. Grand Theft Auto 3, Vice City, San Andreas, and such. Even the awesomely tranquil games like Euro Truck SIm 2 & American Truck Simulator by a Czech gaming studio facing similar obstacles and hurdles to Red51's team. The amount of troll toxicity demanding things "NOW! NOW! NOW!" that they throw tantrums on steam reviews and such.
After watching Jimquisition I'm quite curious if anybody can forcefully buy the Rising World property off of Red51 without his consent. Can someone just swoop in to "steal" and damage the Rising World property? If not that, I'd expect some clones to Rising World similar to maybe how Farsky is to Subnautica. Will we have to fear for Rising World's future once it goes to 1.0 release? I'm thinking Westwood here as well, and how Microsoft bought out Mojang after Notch went "meh, here you go" type deal.
1) Why do people fear multiplayer in singleplayer games so much?
2) Are there people who are phobic of multipalyer in Rising World that they only play singleplayer?
3) People throwing tantrums whenever developers don't update content on a whim that they want things "NOW! NOW! NOW!" (
I'm also guilty of this that I want to apologise once I saw the state the Player Foundation update was released in)
4) Curious if someone can just swoop in to "steal" Rising World from Red51.
I don't blame you if you don't reply, yet just some worried side thoughts because I'm furious at the state of the gaming industry of AAA games ruining everything while indie game developers have to pick up the slack. The video showing that copy & paste is the way games should be made that I prefer the likes of Minecraft, Terraria, Starbound, Rimworld, Rising World, Subnautica, Euro Truck Simulator, Stranded Deep, Empyrion, American Truck SImulator, Ylands, and etc. They (AAA Devs) say you'll have one thing in a game to then have another, and then rob you blind of your money, among other things. Then you need 50 programs to play one game, or to shun a certain type of game to be made....... I'm also keeping my eyes on CyubeVR for a free'er take on the VR concept.
I love following indie game developers because they're far more free in what they do that you can have whatever you want in a game without being told how to play a game, how much you have to pay. AAA games forces you to play in a certain style while indie games you can play in your own style instead. A free world. You can play in your own free style.
I love watching developers work because I can learn and see new things with new insights to how a game is produced. No matter what I say I'll always sound like a fanboy to Rising World, yet I'm genuinely glad & pleased with how Red51 has handled Rising World. I may be a piece of crap for being too obnoxious, yet it's because I'm too genuinely frustrated with the state of gaming that I love (and want to encourage) seeing games being pushed in certain directions; In either vanilla or modding. If there's a void, and if it interests people, it truly should be filled without fears.
I'll always piss off people, yet would love voids to be filled in for various sorts of games types and genres. I'd love to make games myself yet math is my absolute weakness.
If this is too confusing, random, and rambly then I apologies. Sorry. I tried my best to make it coherent.... Just been watching a few more videos trying to understand the state of the gaming world as a gamer myself as to why things are the way they are.......
