  • [ Forum Game ] The New Gaming Laws

    After hearing of all the dumpster fire that keeps happening in the gaming industry.
    [ Epic Exclusives, Gambling Mechanics, Douche Developers *cough, ooblets, cough*, DLC hell, Unfinished Products, Etc, Etc, Etc, Epic, Etc, Etc. ]

    I decided to start a forum game.
    We have left the world of old as we know it and we are starting from scratch (I wish...).
    Lets make our own Gaming laws to make sure the evils of old never come back again to haunt us.


    Here is how it works:
    )> Mention name of gaming law.
    )> What it does and if it affects inside of gaming or outside of gaming.
    )> What is the punishment if it's disobeyed.
    )> People will comment on your law and say if it will work or not or how to make it more effective.

    I will start:

    1.- Videogame Expansions will be the only downloadable content allowed in video games

    If we wish to stop the corruption of the old world micro transactions, we must start by permanently banning any form of micro transactions that is not a full expansion for the game.
    This will also go to Free 2 Play games, all or nothing for the greater good. The good old times will come back like old Blizzard Diablo 2, Starcraft, Warcraft 3 expansions.
    To define a videogame expansion it must offer at least 80% - 90% content of what the original product content has in order to be sold and distributed among the gamers of the Gaming Republic.

    If the creator/s of the game break the rules, they will be forbidden from selling expansions or other games for at least 5 years.
    If they fail to comply they will get jailed for 5 years and listen to Nickleback songs non stop during their imprisonment.


    Members of the Gaming Republic, what other rules you wish to add to the list?
    The new rules can be serious or wacky, impress me. xD
    ( ´・ω・`)_且~ Would you care to join me for a cup of tea?
    Sips Tea Majeeeeestically!

    2. No more fishing mini games.

    They are all bad. No exceptions.

      No exceptions.

      And that's a fair punishment.

    (lets see how much shit I catch for this one)

    3. No fuckable characters that blueball you throughout the game without a hidden sex option written in.

    -Can be as simple as the vase falling off the nightstand in God of War, or all out Pornhub "Most Watch" cinematic, at the devs discretion.
    -This rule immediately applies to all jiggle physics characters.

    Violation of said rule hereby ousts the dev as a new age feminist (even though the wording of the rule was gender neutral, you sexist pig), and punishment shall be to program Cuck Norris' tongue on a kicking simulator for eternity.

      I actually support this idea 100%.
      Some Dragon Age characters come to mind.

    Mention name of gaming law.
    Aidy's Law

    What it does and if it affects inside of gaming or outside of gaming.
    If you don't like something about a game....don't buy it.

    What is the punishment if it's disobeyed
    No punishment for the offence per se, but anyone complaining about some aspect of a game that was discoverable pre-purchase has access to all forms of public discourse removed for a week.

    Aggravating factors are if you never actually bought the game but are pretending you did just to complain about it.

      Simple law, I love it.
      Specially with the new laws in place no more complaining as long it's within reason.

    People keep calling games art these days. I'm not going to argue whether it is or isn't. Clearly there is art inside of games, both visually, in audio, or in the form of storytelling. So you can argue games as a whole is, not to mention maybe a new form of art altogether with its gameplay, speedrunning, whatever. I don't care. But the point is it is being treated like art more and more, so when an online only game gets dumped by the publisher/developer/host/whatever... Like art, it should become public property after some period of time (faster than other forms of art since the digital/electronic world ages at a much faster pace), and the code for hosting/assets/etc becomes publicly available.

    I imagine naysayers would say blah blah but the engine. Maybe you can argue that stays non public as long as they continue to host other games using the same engine, but pretty much all the major engines are public/shared anyway these days.

      I support this idea but more like, if you want to consider your video game an Art piece, it must go free 2 play after x amount of years or even when the creator of said game dies and will go into a museum of Art gaming.

      Only quality products will be allowed in the museum of Art gaming.

    Law: Global release

    All games must have a global release with at least two language options. If not they will be fined 10 percent of the game's revenue.

    I'm crawling deeper and deeper into backlog hell. Also I stream on dlive: https://dlive.tv/jokerthefoolio

      I support this idea.
      I would even suggest having an official office of translators exclusively for every new video game made.
      Now every new game will have multiple language options of your choosing.

    To add on to OP law about expansions:
    an expansion must get a physical release, forcing developers to make enough content to justify a disc plus people with shitty wifi don't get fucked and the content will be preserved longer than the online store is supported.
    This post is only dedicated to beautiful people here tonight... it means none of you.

    No patches or updates allowed in games

    You only get one shot at releasing your game. Get it right the first time you lazy, prick, developers. Let's see how drastically we see broken game releases go down

      No patches or Updates is a bit extreme.
      But I do suggest a limit of 5 or 6 patches / updates to fix bugs that might have been missed or balance changes in the time period of 1 month minimum.

      The punishment: If the game is broken to the point 5/6 patches can't fix their product, they will lose their license to sell games and send to hard labor for a period of 1 year..

      I grew up with no patches in games because I grew up without internet. Once upon a time you only had one shot to get it right because there was no practical way to patch it.

      I love the no censorship rule, but the game will be rated according to the age it belongs.
      I love my lewds so I super support no censorship in videogames.

    Easily a contender for the top 3 worst takes in this forum

      Seriously the worst take? It was called reality not that long ago. The infrastructure to easily roll out patches has made ALL developers lazy, not just game developers.

      Yeah, how come 10 years ago games that had 1,000 lines of code didn't have many bugs, but games today with 10,000,000 lines of code do have bugs? It's insane!

      I agree with Aidy. The main problem with today compared to before was the line of coding.
      Bugs can escape sight of even the best coder.
