The Inner Gamer,

139: Destiny 2, Lawbreakers and How Games Keep Us Hooked

September 12, 2017

Destiny 2 is here. Is it better than the original? Did it fix the issues we had with the first one? We explore the new additions, the story missions, the crucible and more with Destiny and how it’s changed from the first game.

We also have some news with Lawbreakers, Blizzard building an eSports arena in Los Angeles and South Park’s difficulty slider. Apparently Nintendo also decided Mario isn’t a plumber anymore.

Our discussion this week is on how games keep us hooked. A rising concept is “games as a service” in which a game has you purchase it, but offers additional content later on for added fees or with microtransactions. We see it most commonly with MMO’s but it’s also in games like Overwatch, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds and more. What do you think about games as a service? What should be made into one?
