I've ranted about this before, but i will say it again. After what we have seen the last 3 months, it should be a prime example of why we should not pre-order games at all in this time and age. Broken games out of the box are unacceptable. Sonic Boom, Driveclub, Halo MCC, Far Cry 4, Assassin's Creed Unity, Little Big Planet 3, and others. We've seen broken promises when games have been released. Hell GTA V Online was broken when it was released, but it wasn't part of the main game and it's wiser to do something like that because it actually has a solid singleplayer. While most games have either had broken gameplay or the online has been broken
The promises with the trailers and pre-order bonuses have been rendered more irrelevant than ever. Because what you pay for isn't worth the money. You're basicly paying full price for a beta test. I have been good with not pre-ordering games, and i usually don't. But i made a grave mistake by doing it with Driveclub. I am a big racing fan, and i've paid for that mistake. Fortunately this doesn't happen a lot to me personally, because i don't pre-order.
I've mention that we should be more patient in an earlier blog. This should not only apply to games that we are waiting for, but it should also apply to the games we buy. We can not trust the publishers to release a broken game. We should not continue to found these bad business practices that are against us as consumers and fans. The fact that there are so many games that are broken is really concerning to me as a gamer. If publishers whine about how they can't make a profit, then maybe they shouldn't release broken ass games.
