Anthem Feels Hopeless

Stick a fork in it, it's done. With the exception of the die-hard fans, no one is interested in wasting time on this game. 

Anthem wasn't the first live-service game to launch in a bad state, and though things were grim, other games like Diablo 3 and Battlefield 4 had skirted similar launch disasters. But nothing in the past four months since Anthem's release—including its long-awaited and over-promised Cataclysm endgame—has given me any confidence in BioWare's ability to turn things around.
