Conspiracy: Are Gamers too smart? The Video Gaming Industry Is Actively trying to “dumb us down” [Update: 11/7/19]

“Soul Calibur VI confirmed to be DUMBED DOWN”

“We tried eliminate a lot of complex inputs and commands; because there was definitely a barrier of execution which we wanted to play down–a lot–and let the… sort of ‘mind games’ of the two players be the main focus of the stage.”

Long story short the game caters to stupid people (not casual gamers). Z motion isn’t to hard. You people have a low attention span. Fighting games a competitive by nature. There’s no need for a “participation award.” NO, YOU LOSE BECAUSE YOU SUCK. LEARN TO PLAY!

How about you add a win button to the game? The game is to hard! Gamers will feel sad if they lose. Oh, I have a great idea. How about you make it so both players win in a fighting game! That way everyone would be happy!

Dumbed down games: who is to blame? : pcgaming – Reddit

As you can see the video game industry is moving as a whole to “simplify” and RIG games. This malarkey is like watching a don king boxing match. Lets add random generators so lesser skilled players can win? I have a better idea developers. How about we boycott your A.D.D. Fighters and Participation Award “competitive” games.
