That's the point, they didn't want to make Video Games they just wanted to make loot box and microtransaction apps.

It’s easy they just want money so they rush games and release them all bugging thinking that’s ok because EA, Activison, and Ubisoft make a lot of money.

I want a report on why Marvel Avengers failed so I can see the acknowledgement that we don't want that live service looters shooter crap in writing.

There is a timeline for entertainment and it's predictable.
1) Be poor but passionate and work on minor products
2) Start hiring others as you earn money and make some moderately successful products, losing only a little passion
3) Take a big risk and put millions of dollars of investment into your passion and hit it big (This is the passion turning point)
4) Investment firms and large corporations buy you out
5) You do the work your overlords tell you to do and the passion is entirely extinguished

Funny part Amazon can't make good software on their tablet, or keep the store updated with up to date apps. Games is not only things they can't do right. Like their fire phone too. lol What we learn money is not everything to make anything good.

So the guy in charge of Amazon's gaming division literally did not know the difference between a game and a video clip?

Amazon management is near incompetent, this guy especially, of course he probably walks away with millions. Failed phone, failed streaming series, failing prime video UI, failed video games, failed small sellers by allowing large wholesalers from overseas, failed customer service, failed warehouses, failing website that's difficult to navigate, and quitting CEO. About all they can do is manage a decent cloud/server business.

A delivery company tries to make a game, what does anyone expect? All they know how to do is ship boxes around lol.

They needed to do what the successful (EA, Activision, etc) publishers do. Buy an already established studio/IP with a fanbase that loves them. Exploit the fans and run the studio into the ground. Close the studio. Rinse and repeat.

I played the New Wold Closed Alpha and I freaking loved the game, the gameplay, immersion, sound, mmorpg economic, it was very impressive.

TL; DW Amazon hired a typical executive who knows nothing about what he's in charge of and refused to listen to those who do know. Frezini sounds like the PHB of Dilbert fame of Amazon Games.

Amazon games are perfect for the SouljaGame Console since neither of the creators know what the fuck they're doing.

Sounds weird but if you want to make a name for your self best way is a single player game, multiplayer games normally die real fast and are forgotten even faster. Take GTA V if it was just a online game it would fail harder then anthem did, but with a good single player story it got people to try it out those people liked it and went online which then made them even more money. This is what people need to understand and why single player games almost always earn their money back, might not give you 10 billions but player your cards right and you can get there.

The reason so many games/products fail is that companies focus too much on money and corporate ways.

I still click the like button, but The problem with this video is that it’s based on an article by Jason Schreier who is an anti-games activist, not a journalist. It would be like going to PETA for expertise on the meat industry.

Keep in mind Apex Legends was in development since 2016. Started as Titanfall 3, ended as a BR game. It takes a long time.

cuz when u really think about it amazon isn't really good at making stuff. like they were popular because they sold cheap college books and that's how they got started. reading/books was their thing. their fire tablets and phones are a joke…they bought twitch and whole foods….their on demand shows/movies are kinda bare bones like u can have prime for a month and pretty much go through their entire inventory of of content. like I don't see why they would he good at making games….they have the money but that doesn't mean jack. look at how many flops google put out (looking at u stadia). like amazon can't even get me my prime shipment on time 100% of the time, like wtf am I paying prime for? which is why I stopped paying for it.
