PUBG FREE & My Review…

This is the video game equivalent of black tar heroin.

The first few times you play, the adrenaline rush is incredible, and you might find yourself playing for hours in the hopes of that one magical time when everything goes right and you get that Winner Winner Chicken Dinner… but after a while, you start to notice problems — bad textures, lag and rubberbanding like nobody’s business, failure to properly load in resources (as in both loot on the ground and entire buildings themselves fail to load at all), absolutely god awful driving mechanics, the minimap does not accurately show your teammates where you put a marker (makes it very difficult to indicate to your buddies where a particularly good gun or armor is), cheaters with aimbots and “farming” accounts.

You keep playing, because baby that sweet sweet rush when things actually work is so incredible, but over time you start to realize that you’re force-feeding yourself pounds of garbage because you think there might be a full candy bar somewhere in there. It’s addictive, and you know it’s awful, but you keep trying because maybe one day it will be better…

But sadly, the developer cares more about adding new content than fixing the broken content that already exists. The new map (Miramar) is terrible, feels like someone just went apesh*t with a terrain elevation tool randomly creating cliffs that bounce you off the side and kill you instantly from falling when you go anywhere near them. Instead of addressing player complaints about framerates, lag, textures, widespread cheating, disconnects and crashes, the dev has decided to implement loot boxes that require keys – you guessed it – that can only be purchased with real money. The game is being sold specifically to the “esports” market, and it’s not even functional (spectation mode is abyssmal, good luck trying to watch the action through the seizure-inducing stutters). This game should never have left early access, and to call it a “full release game” makes a mockery of the whole industry. If you your gonna play this game, just get pubg for free from that video xD!

Download Fortnite instead; that battle royale mode is free, and at least it actually works.
