Let’s say you made your own gaming company, like Nintendo, Sony, Microsoft, Sega, EA, Activision, Capcom, Konami, Square Enix, Namco Bandai, and Ubisoft. You have your own line of consoles and handhelds, as well as making arcade, computer, and phone games. However, you’re notorious for making really bad decisions that piss off your fans and customers. What kinds of bad things would you do?
Some things I would do, is make all my consoles and handhelds region-locked. I would also let some handheld games have only one save file. If I feel that a game doesn’t meet a certain criteria, I would cancel it (even if many people wanted it). For some games that would have DLC, I would only have it released for a limited time, then later take it away. Most of my games would have DRMs. I can choose whether or not to localize games, same for porting third party games. Many of my stronger franchises would constantly be milked every year. I can make certain computer games Mac exclusive if I want to. If there is someone making a fan-made sequel/remake to a classic game I made, I would make sure it doesn’t get made. Also, if a certain game that has multiplayer doesn’t sell well, I would permanently disable all online support for it.
