Buy More Memory
Cordova, TN; February 13, in the year of our Lord
2017--Family Friendly Gaming, the industry leader in
covering the family friendly video games is giving an opinion on
the “Buy More Memory” response to the problem of video game
installations being so large. Why can’t we just play off of the
disc? Previous video games let us play off of discs. Why are we
denied that right now? Why does every game have to install?
There is only so much memory on any of these machines. That
means we are constantly deleting games, and then re-installing
the games months later when we decide to go and play them again.
This would not be an issue if video game companies did not deny
us the right to play off of discs again. This is not progress in
any way shape and form. Why not? It takes too long to install
these modern day video games.
I do not find the mantra of “Buy More Memory” to be valid. Why should we have to spend more money on more equipment to play these games? Why can’t the designers come up with an intelligent design? Better yet why did they go away from the intelligent design of playing video games off of the discs? Some people tell me to purchase a new machine. I know there are newer Xbox One and Playstation 4 video game systems with more memory. Eventually that could all be used up as well. Especially with so many video game companies wanting to constantly update their games. Obviously they can’t get it right the first time, so they keep monkeying with it. I do not want to constantly purchase new hard drives, or systems because of poor design from the video game manufacturers. Why reward those video game companies for their poor design?
Another issue with the “Buy More Memory” mantra is it requires the usage of an USB port. Have you looked at the modern day video game systems? They are lacking severely in the USB port department. If you want to charge a controller on the system that takes up one. If you have a peripheral (like Lego Dimensions portal, Skylanders portal, Disney Infinity portal) then that takes up another one. Some of these systems only have two USB ports. That means we have no space for the external hard drive to plug into. So then I would have to determine which game installations are on the main system, and which game installations are on the external hard drive. The more complex we make these things the more trouble they wind up giving us. Why can’t these things be kept simple? Why can’t we have some intelligent design? Playing off of the discs worked marvelously in the past. Why do we always need to install the games and use up precious disc drive space?
