I'm not a game developer, but I'm sure many of you are or have developed games at some point. I think the thing that upsets me most about gaming is this quote.
Competition among game developers is so extreme that it’s led them to carefully tune games, sometimes with the help of psychologists to frustrate gamers just enough to encourage them to make In-App Purchases
I just can't make myself get on board with this type of manipulation. I'd rather make a great app or game that people will want to pay for. I do find it fascinating to read through the whole post and see just how much gaming has evolved. From dollar games to complex IAP systems, the ecosystem has come a long way.
