My favorite is still the AngryJoeShow. That guy does and says it right every video. He spot on for how I feel.

I see this differently. Kotaku revealed what was behind the scenes.

 

Now we all see that bw is repairing the game as it should be. It´s Great.

What do you expect? A loot shooter with no loot and it all looks ugly. They couldn't even make the guns look cool. * shame borderlands released in 2009 takes a massive dump on this game.

Half of those are toxic clickbaiters I wouldn't ordinarily touch and hardly represent 'public opinion'. The other are mostly supportive of Anthem without ignoring the valid criticisms.

 

In short, a mixed bag.

 

The opinion that really matters is whether you personally enjoy the game.

 

How the game's fortunes go from here rather sit with BioWare, I think.

I don't work for EA, but I adore BioWare's Mass Effect, Dragon Age & Anthem.

The only way to truly evaluate player opinions regarding Anthem is to have access to the player count and amount of playtime per player. Public opinion is tainted. I'm not saying Anthem is an overwhelming success as a game review. However, the launch sales are a reasonable success and in the end that is what will propel the game over the next year or two.

 

I think I posted this somewhere else on this forum.  Division 1 had the exact same situation at launch / post launch. The core team at Massive started working on Division 2 immediately after Division 1 launched. 

 

If you enjoy the game keep playing it, if you don't, move on. Making 'armchair developer demands' or ranting about the sky falling is pointless.  YouTube is just people trying to make things worst so that they can complain that things are worst - that's how they make money.  I feel sorry for people who need YouTube validation for how they feel about a game.  If I don't enjoy a game, I find something else to do. I don't seek out other people who hate the same game so we can all hate it together,

you could form your own opinion

 

or...

 

you could copy and verbally/textually vomit the opinions of people who have a significant incentive to talk about whatever is popular at the time and their career depends on generating traffic to their content... you could assume they're being honest... or you could get those wheels spinning upstairs and realize that those people are riding off the popularity of this game and how its currently cool-to-hate anthem... they would've been doing the opposite if that was the popular opinion.

 

im really scared of these generations who grow up lacking the capacity to form their own opinions and rely on click-bait youtube personalities to tell them how and what they should feel

So does that make you feel better about your decision to hate the game? Or did you already decide that before seeing all these videos? I dont know about you but I play games I like. I dont need anyone to tell me it's good in order for me to feel good/right about playing it.

I was a huge supporter of Anthem but I'm on the fence at this point. Objectively; Anthem is still the train wreck it was in development and they have a lot of work to do to fix it. They've even admitted as much recently. It's a real shame that it was pushed out in this state because you only get one chance to launch a new IP and they pretty much blew it. I honestly don't know if it will recover now that they've dropped the ball but I hope it will. Personally, I need a break because I'm really getting frustrated and starting to dislike the game. I can't even play since the latest update thanks to the vault bug, even after I've deleted a ridiculous amount of loot. I need something to actually play and they are too busy fixing the game to release new content. Hopefully in a few months Anthem will be in a better place and I'll have reason to come back.
