Ironically I'm one of those weirdos who actually likes making it to the top ten because I hid for the majority of the game. It's kind of like what Jim Sterling said, the game rewards you for being an utter coward.
I find pubg one of those games that is just weirdly compelling for no real good reason. It tends to be rougher then I prefer and I've never liked the one life games but its got a weird combination of hide and seek/treasure hunting/panicked shooting that just works to make me say "I'll fuck those guys up next time."
doesn't look particularly fun, in fact quite mindnumbing, repetitive and frustrating alongside the inclusion of the most unimaginative assets and customisation through lootboxes on a game that already has an up-front cost. Is it even officially a 'finished/released' game yet?
Still, great for streamers and their revenue I guess.
the developers are apparently working on a Steampunk MMO, which I am far more interested in. There is the small chance this is just their sellout period to fund the more creative and passionate title. But MMO implies heavy grind/repetition, and probably more lootboxes, so am not fully on board and am quite prepared to deal with the wasted potential with forlorn dismissal
PUBG is actually pretty interesting to study as a game because it presents some difficult problems that are inherent in a ton of FPS games. Just for starters, Snipers in games are either underpowered or OP'd. There never seems to be any true middle ground.
