Is there anything wrong with activision games here in GOG (except for the high prices?)
The problem is that some publishers don't understand that youngsters aren't really interested that much of games that could be classified as old and outdated. Especially the pixel art ones from the DOS / floppy disc era. You know, the ones you can play with an emulator if you don't happen to have relevant harware lying around.
Now don't get me wrong, I do appreciate that these games haven't been forgotten and that they can still be bought. The thing is though that no one really have to buy them in order to play them. I'm sure that most people, like me, who would be interested in them, already own them. This means that most would really be interested in the privilege to simply have them in their Gog library (and maybe some extra goodies). I don't think that anyone would want to spend too much on that privilege alone.
It's bit different story with the CD era games that can't be run on latest operating system. Those games (at least some of them) probably needed some extra work put in in order to get them to run on win 10. That would make me understand if they have slightly higher price tag. Slightly, that is, and not extortionist rates they have right now. I believe that those ugly and uncanny early 3D graphics are somewhat being fetishised by some. But anyone with such kinks can easily replicate those graphics with low effort. There are even tutorials how to do precisely that. So yet again, not something anyone would spend a lot on. At least that's what I think.
But I MUST be wrong. Because every marketer knows that the greater the discount the bigger the sales. The trick is not to have too big of a discount in order not to cut into your own profits. And if the sale numbers are bad then increase the discount. Right? This is common practice. Which means that there are masses of idiots with too much money to spend on nonsense.
In conclusion - this is not even Activisions fault. - Look at Ziccurat or even Blizzard. Holy fuck, look at Blizzard. It's not like they are any worse than Activision. They simply have armies of fanboys with excess money simply lying around.
This is why I gave up already some time ago and removed all games from my wishlist that bothered me with pointless spam. Afterall, there's no point arguing with fanboys.
