Mike Ybarra is seriously taking the piss about having a tip jar in big budget games! It's often a $70 dollar game (ultimate editions being the price they want to charge but know they'd get laughed out of business for). Executives are a breed of human who has lost all touch with reality. 🤪

Or, OR, I have another idea. Mike Ybarra can pay a better wage to developers. That works too. In fact, that probably works better in the long run.

@Dennis5891 Happier staff make better games, as a former exec Mike could even pressure other executives to do just that. Of course he won't, because the executive class are at the top just to enrich themselves and stomp all over the people working hard for them. They live in a state of disconnection with reality and the scam of infinite growth.

He was one of the worst executives who normalized aggressive monetization in games. Bobby is much the same in that regard, the tasteless curs.

It's all so stupid. And to think it all started with that damn horse.

@Dennis5891 Agreed, the fucking horse armor; Of course the recurrent user spending chart too (which likened gamers to cows which could be milked regularly) is at fault too.

However, there were those who simply let this happen because they silenced those who spoke their concerns; about how monetization could become a monster that it is now.
