The games that are sweeping online games. PUBG is one of those and one of the first. A mod that became a standalone game. However, there is the question, is the game good? Is it playable? Do users enjoy it? For my personal opinion, we have to go back to the beginning.
September 12, 2017. The day I bought PUBG, although it was still in early access. He had seen some friends play, as well as all the streamers who had played it. I thought, why not? It was $ 30, which is not cheap, but not terrible either. From what I had heard, the developer was very active in development. So I bought.
For a while it was fun. I had a group of friends that I played squads with and as my first FPS on PC, I learned to play with a keyboard and mouse. There were bugs, of course, and hackers, but it’s an early access game, that’s to be expected. Right? Well, right.
Things were looking good. Updates were coming. Money was being made. Everyone in the world was eager to see what the game would turn into.
Fast forward to today, over a year later.
There are still problems. Many problems.
It’s not that the game doesn’t update. They send updates all the time, even now, and they shut down the servers twice a week for maintenance. It’s just … a conflict of interest, maybe?
The developers are really concerned about money, or so it seems. Also, with the launch of the Sea of Battle Royale games, they are concerned to remain relevant. The problem is that they are not really helping at all.
The company seems to be more focused on skins, maps, and weapons than fixing what they already have. Each performance update helps something, but breaks two or three more things. For example, an update left my friends and I couldn’t even join a game. Not good.
And then I’m tired. It’s fun, but I’m tired. You will have nights when everything is going well and you will have fun. Then you will have nights where you will get shot in the corners or you will lose fights that you clearly should have won. The replay system is still so slow that you can’t even watch a replay and see precisely what happened.
Honestly, at the beginning of the night, it’s like the server has your back or not. If not, you lose a lot of shootouts. If it does, you win them. It’s pretty crazy, but it happens over and over again.
Even with all the trouble and getting mad, I still have over 200 hours in the game. Why? Because it’s fun. It’s a fun game, when it works. The problem is that when you push for him to be in eSports tournaments, then the whole world sees two players survive a grenade that exploded right at their feet (yes, that happened).
It is an argument. Because if you post about it, people say it’s your PC. All I can say is that I have played long enough to realize that it is the game, not my PC. If I can’t play a game with a GTX 1080, then I don’t want to play that game.
