What the hell?

Aren't those always removed when the next one comes out? Like FIFA...
I thought that was the reason why Humble gave away 2 or 3 of them just before they were removed.

Not directly in the next year. I bought older F1 games in 2018 (F1 11-15). But they get removed at some point.

I see. I just vaguely remembered picking up 2015 & 2018 for free from Humble so I thought it's like FIFA or Football Manager.

Just checked all titles: All titles up to F1 2018 aren't sold anymore and F1 2019 isn't available in germany - like it is censored.

F1 2019 isn't available in germany

Apparently the only regions where it's still available are Hong Kong and Taiwan.
That's an odd combination... I would have understood Hong Kong and China.

That's truly strange. Sometimes you can't understand some companies and their decisions...

f1 2022 is getting negative reviews, sometimes it's better to have the ability to buy an older version.

Obviously.
For us... not for them though.

To name a similar example just look at Assassin's Creed III Remastered. Going by my gut alone that game was 18 months old when they decided to pull and replace it and I don't think anybody asked for a Remaster neither. But it gives them an excuse to remove a game that has lost value and replace it with an almost identical product and justify keeping up the price "Because it's new!".

One one my buddies even fell for that despite having played and finished AC3.

Last of Us Remastered - same story.
I mean it's nice for me because I didn't play the original but was it really necessary?

I'd be actually curious for feedback from anybody who hast played both AC3 and AC3 Remastered or Last of Us & Last of Us Remastered.

But it almost looks as if Ubisoft learned something since then because very recently they added 60frames mode to AC Origins without trying to sell it to us as Origins Remastered.

???

When did AC3 Remaster get replaced or replace something?

AC3 was released in 2012 and Remaster was released in 2019. So it never replaced AC3 within 18 months.

And nothing has replaced AC3 Remaster at all .... it is still the same, they did remove the original AC3 from sale though, but that was this year.

I believe you're thinking of AC Liberation HD which was a spin-off set in roughly the same time-period as Assassin's Creed 3, which is now included in Assassin's Creed III Remastered.

F1 2022 is broken as hell, especially the AI. It's extremely unfinished. Not surprised, as they made BF2042 as well, oh and they accidentally removed Denuvo from the game in a patch, resulting to the game being pirated less than 3 weeks after release :)

They got removed when EA bought Codies out, I guess they want people to buy the new one.

Well it's EA, of course they want you to buy the latest copy and paste game.

Of course fans are gonna buy the same game for 6+ years (FIFA). F1 at least gets some decent updates, the pricing on it depends though as F1 2020 was 55 euro on launch (still that price and available for sale), F1 2021 was 75 fucking euros!! (dropped to 60 euro in September) and F1 2022 is 60 euro. These games get heavily discounted (F1 2021 went down to as low as 15 euro less than 1 year after launch) showing how worthless they really are. Same story for FIFA, just more heavy (FIFA 22 went on sale to less than 10 euro less than 1 year after launch).

Everything EA buys turns out this way
-Bullfrog Productions: Dead
-DreamWorks Interactive: Dead
-Black Box: Dead
-Criterion Software: Dead
-Digital Illusions CE: Dying
-Codemasters: Dying
Respawn is pretty much all they have left

You still can buy F1 2020 and 2021. But you are right, these are (would be) pricier than the older titles.

Hm, i have as key F1 2018 and F1 2019.
And i have activated in my account F1 2011 & F1 2012 and F1 2014 - F1 2020.

I would say that is enough, so f+++ EA and their "higher prices" :-D

This is beyond shameful at this point.
Before it happened only on Origin, now they're doing it on Steam. Shooting themselves in the foot to support their newer games. While Bethesda et al gives away their old games for free.
I wouldn't be surprised if its because revenue from older games still went to Codemasters.

Bethesda giving away something for free? I've been away from the bundle scene for a couple of months but what did I miss? I'm still holding out for Oblivion to get more than a 50% discount 😅

Elder scrolls Arena, Daggerfall and Morrowind have been given away for free.
Quake games have been given away for free.
Now you can get Doom 3 + DLC + Doom BFG Edition by buying Doom 3 alone. (I tested it and it works)

As for Oblivion: GOTY and Deluxe have been 75% off a few times this year on official sites. You just need to know where to look.

On Zenimax launcher, right?
I'm one of those fools who has to have everything on Steam. (although I do use Epic and other launchers when there are exceptional freebies like Celeste or Subnautica)


Edit: Oh yeah, GMG and Fanatical are both more or less trustworthy sites in my opinion. One more than the other. Guess I didn't keep a close eye on it because it's not really a high priority game for me.
