Did you know a new Terminator film came out? If you pay attention to the "AAA" videogame market, you'd know. You couldn't help but know.

Terminator: Dark Fate has been placing its product all over the game industry, treating a number of high profile games like stops on a press tour. The result is T-800s everywhere.

Gears 5, Mortal Kombat 11, Ghost Recon Breakpoint, all three have been plagued by little metal skeletons. More importantly, these Dark Fate promotions turn players into billboards, and those players pay for the privilege.

Let's talk about Dark Fate, product placement, and how companies are doubling down on their marketing promotions and expecting people to pay to become living digital commercials.

The AAA gaming industry is out there. They can’t be bargained with. They can’t be reasoned with. They don't feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And they absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are broke.

“People are taking the piss out of you everyday. They butt into your life, take a cheap shot at you and then disappear. They leer at you from tall buildings and make you feel small. They make flippant comments from buses that imply you’re not sexy enough and that all the fun is happening somewhere else. They are on TV making your girlfriend feel inadequate. They have access to the most sophisticated technology the world has ever seen and they bully you with it. They are The Advertisers and they are laughing at you. You, however, are forbidden to touch them. Trademarks, intellectual property rights and copyright law mean advertisers can say what they like wherever they like with total impunity. Fuck that. Any advert in a public space that gives you no choice whether you see it or not is yours. It’s yours to take, re-arrange and re-use. You can do whatever you like with it. Asking for permission is like asking to keep a rock someone just threw at your head. You owe the companies nothing. Less than nothing, you especially don’t owe them any courtesy. They owe you. They have re-arranged the world to put themselves in front of you. They never asked for your permission, don’t even start asking for theirs.” ― Banksy

All of this has made all the funnier by the fact that Terminator Dark Fate has bombed in theaters so hard, that Paramount has basically shelved any future plans for the franchise indefinitely. So all these advertising campaigns were completely and utterly pointless. They contributed nothing to the movie's success. There's a lesson in there somewhere. A lesson that neither Hollywood nor the video game industry will even slightly learn.

This is a YouTube comment for the almighty algorithm. it contains words like, terrific, outstanding, incredible and brilliant to satiate its hunger for engagement.

I wouldn’t mind the video game industry being this crassly commercial if the money went towards paying the developers and employees a fair wage and giving them job security. Or paying Taxes. Or dozens of other worthwhile things than lining the pockets of the very few at the very top of the corporate ladder.

Crossovers are cool *when they make sense* but if you shove a character or an IP everywhere then it becomes less special and more annoying

I agree with you about most of this video, but hard disagree on Final Fantasy XIV and Monster Hunter World. They don't charge extra for the events and both games actually put development time in to make the crossover events have story and purpose and fun for the players. I play both of the games and have really enjoyed the events, whether they be from games I love, like The Witcher in MHW, or games I'm less fond of, like FFXV in FFXIV. And the events that crossed the two games with each other were truly great.

I was actually interested in Fortnite when it was a relatively unknown game, that was actually aspiring to be ya know, a game. Now it's literally turned into just a way to shove advertising into kids faces without actually being under the remit of the advertising regulators.

*Jim's biggest problem:* Companies are making lots of money from this. *My problems with it:* This just shows how sterile and controlled our shared culture is. The icons and characters most dear to us are literally *owned* by specific companies, and it would be *illegal* for anyone to do anything with them without that company's permission. So all these pillars of our culture are locked away in their own little worlds, and they never interact or develop without the written blessing of the copyright holder. Crossovers are fundamentally fun and good and we should have _more_ of them, not fewer. Its just that the way its being done right now is not based on what characters would be cool to see together, but on who shake hands with who in a skyscraper somewhere. The actual artists are only allowed to work with what they are given.

There's a Frozen 2 event in a mobile game called "Love Nikki". The main part of the event is a loot box which would cost $66.59 at minimum to get all of the items.

The Terminator “event” on Breakpoint was horribly executed. It was literally 2 random missions per day, that’s it. The rest of the map was otherwise untouched, and they literally took 30 mins to complete. You’d just log in, knock em off, and turn the console off again.

Making things short: Crossovers today are nothing special anymore, because of "overuse".
HoxMouse 2 month ago
I really can't get mad at simply "Weird, 'what', crossovers in videogames" because at the enjoyment level what's all that different than when you'd smack action figures from different settings together for fun back in the day? Canonical sense or no, it's fun to have something like Terminator or Spawn show up in Mortal Kombat or similar, even more when fans of both sides of the crossover have asked for those a million times, Spawn particularly I'm real surprised didn't get into MK sooner with all the rumors and requests over the years. Obviously AAA industry sucks hard and all that, but purely on the thought of cheeseball crossovers, I'm 100% fine with them.

i gotta say for all this crossover crap that was going on how was Terminator: Resistance not really pushed or marketed like crazy. Although having nothing to do with Dark Fate, it would make so much more sense for a Terminator game to be hyped up. Especially since the game is pretty decent, was it an amazing game no. But it was good enough to forgive alot of the faults and enjoy it, especially if your a fan of the franchise.

And here I thought rathalos seeming appearing everywhere including smash, ffxiv, and even dragalia lost was a little excessive and I honestly didn't even noticed the Terminator cross over because I haven't really played those games (no offense to those who do played them) Also Madeline should be in smash!

I honestly haven’t watched the video yet but I’m guessing it’s about the terminator franchise being whored out to Ubisoft to try rescue there broken break point game. Rather than the owners of the terminator franchise support terminator resistance which while wasn’t the greatest game it had it heart in the right place and was respectful of the terminator name?

I just want to say, to counteract the negative nature of the video, that on your recommendation I played Terminator: Resistance, and honestly I had the time of my life. It's not groundbreaking, or anything, but it was a solid, well-thought out, thoroughly enjoyable love letter to the only good Terminator movies. Loved every minute of it.

You were telling me a small Indie team are able to make a pretty and functional game for the Terminator but big Studios keep on using it as some kind of advertisement despite the fact that it is not as popular they're just banking on the nostalgia
