I'm not sure if its justified but to me I feel disrespected. The whole situation of the company changing the product after purchase, for example I see it as buying a bicycle from a retail store, a month later the retail store/ bicycle company goes to your house and changes the seat, the brakes and wheels. If you don't accept there changes (accept update) you can not use your bicycle off your property (can't use online) and your stuck riding your bike up and down your driveway (short solo campaign).
I used to play CoD but since the guns keep changing stats I sold them to a friend, I always played the Battlefield series and now they are nerfing which kills the total realism and point of the series. I can't think of other major nerfing in games, besides Mass Effect 3 and STILL I hear complaining about the gun stats (while there is no real guns to compare them to, you might as well nerf lightsabers in the next Star Wars games because "the lightsaber is to over powered and blah blah blah)
Anybody else think this way or might have a different opinion?
I can see balancing a gun or two, but changing everything is terrible. I think I'm still stuck in the 90's, when a game was released the gameplay was set in stone.
