This group of gamers is kind of an interesting snippit of the consumer picture. I watched with some surprise as BF-V beat UT in a free-market capitalism kind of way. By that I mean that while both games had allot of interest and strong player bases amoung GWJ players when they came out, on any given night there are WAY more people playing BF-V than UT.
I'n not commenting on gameplay or quality or anything like that, just stating my observation, using my limited measuring system of activity for each game on X-Fire and Teamspeak.
Now that JO is out, there is allot of talk about playing it together, and I hope we do some of that. I also hope that the guys that get togethert for BF-V continue to do so, as they are all a great group to play with. There are a number of people that feel it is too much like BF-V to justify their hard-earned disposable cash, and I would hate to not be able to play with them regularly.
So my point, finally: I hope that most nights when there is more than just a few of us on, we can reach some sort of consensus about what to play so that the core group of guys that have been playing together these last few months does not splinter apart too much. I think in the end it'll be more computer game Darwinism (sp?) as to what game gets played most often, but whatever it is I hope as a group those that want to play together are playing the same game, be it BF-V or JO. Playing games like this with a dozen or so guys you know on the same server and on TS is incredible, and I hope that as new games come out we don't, as a group, lose that.
Did that make any sense at all?
