  1. Golf ≠ Baller
    I’m soooo ready for EA PGA with AUGUSTA on the cover. Tired of 2K trying to make golf hip and cool. The sport is already cool without making it out to be like nba 2K.

    Still waiting for the 2K: Give the People What They Want version which includes:
    - playing as the actual PGA players
    - playing against the actual PGA players (without having to jump thru
    hoops)
    At least we will have that option with EA early next year.
    $24.99 for the Baller Pack!? No thank you... most of the stuff featured in it is stuff I'd pay to be given the privilege to no use! I play the game almost everyday, but none of this add-on crap holds any appeal to me whatsoever! I'm much more curious to see what EA comes out with in the Spring, and later 2K with the next in the series, but trying to milk this cow any further isn't raising their stock any!
    *SIGH*
    The Clubhouse Pass Season 1 content (Mizuno clubs and gear, Under Armour jackets, etc.) and all the other stuff was made available for free to "buy" via in-game VC with no additional purchase. With Season 2 back for sale as well, they continue to double dip on DLC.
    It's also an extremely interesting time for them to release a premium version of the game, as it's available for free right now to PS Plus subscribers.
    I will continue to also mention that this game has serious issues in career mode that have yet to be fixed, despite being identified and reported to 2K Support since the first week this game came out - back in August 2020.

    Baller edition?… it’s golf. 2k feels to have lost the beauty of what this game was.

    Exactly, at the start of this series it was pure golf. Not even PGA Tour. I feel 2K is ruining it in that aspect.

    Really out of touch.
    This reeks of some Ivy league MBAs huddling around a spreadsheet or a slick PowerPoint that points out some key demographics they aren't performing as well as they'd like with (I'm envisioning 3-D pie chart here...), and some token millennial - or whoever the youngest person in the conference room is - is tasked with trying to 'relate' to the kids to increase revenue. Run it up the management chain, talk to product, and a few weeks later, voila: Baller Edition is born.
    It's almost a caricature or parody of a corporate move, except it's 100% real.

    ^^^THIS^^^ is exactly right, every single word of it. I couldn't have said it better if I tried for an hour. It's exactly how this struck me. This is an absolute bull**** "upgrade" and really alienates people who actually love this game and want it to get better. Mario Cart Golf type crap. Insulting.

    "Token millennial" made me almost giggle snort my beer. *very* succinct. Well struck there buddy!

    It is what it is though... trying to maximize revenue by trying to get the millennials and zoomers to like golf games. To have all those taking advantage of PS+, 2K is trying to hook them in. EA did the same trying to associate the new generation consoles with new generation golf games. They brought back the super power shots, a cool nightclub and battlefield course. It's out of touch for us old farts real golfers, but not for these generations and non golfers. Those kind of DLC are not for us, it's for them.

    Well said as well, and very true. Let's just hope they parlay any revenue from this into making an incredible game next year. I'm all for the EA game and will buy it the day it comes out, but I will also buy the 2k game when it comes out as well. I play way too much PS4 golf, having 2 great games is really tantalizing.

    I have no issue whatsoever with 2K trying to maximize their revenue on the game. No problem with that. That's what they should do. What I was commenting on had more to do with how they are going about it - it is, in my opinion, badly misguided.
    Reaching out to younger players is of course always a reasonable goal, but their strategy seemingly fails to recognize that golf fans are not basketball fans. Have you seen the kinds of commercials they run during a PGA tournament vs those they run during an NBA game? I doubt too many investment management firms spend time advertising in NBA2K. The Venn diagram of NBA fans and PGA fans probably looks like a pair of binoculars.
    Monetizing more authentic golf experiences for golfers would, in my opinion, be a more profitable way to go with these types of approaches. You're speaking to golf fans, not hoops fans that somehow happened to accidentally sink 30-40 hours into a golf game. Most golf game fans probably play golf in real life. Cater to that. That's where your money is.
    I also think it's old-school thinking that only young people play video games (oddly enough). There are at least as many adult gamers as younger/teenage gamers, so the idea that everything in gaming has to be aimed at that median 18-year old demo is outmoded. I would imagine that's doubly true for something like a (purported) golf sim.

    I'm with you, but I'm not holding my breath for a significantly better experience with any future 2K golf games. I think PGA2K21 is okay, but barring a complete overhaul from top-to-bottom, I think there's no way PGA2K22 or whatever is more than a graphical overhaul with some tweaks and (hopefully) some bug fixes. I've also been pretty critical of EA and their approach to sports games and golf more recently, but in a curious turn of events, the PGA will be the only major sports league with legitimate competition in the gaming segment. Who'd have thunk it?
    It's not the fact they're trying to make more money that's worth criticizing. It's the fact they keep trotting out the same repeat DLC over and over again. And they market it like it's "fresh" and "trendy" to get these things that have been available for months!
    They are putting items already in the game and able to unlock for free into DLC bundles for...reasons. And they charge $9.99 for them. Ridiculous.
    They are now selling a premium package that includes items that were in Season 1 of the Clubhouse Pass - DLC that was already released almost a year ago - as well as preorder items that didn't cost a thing at the start.
    Plus, Season 2 of the Clubhouse Pass was just put back up for sale a week or so ago. They keep selling the same stuff over and over again, even the things that were supposed to be a "limited time offer".
    People criticize DLC no matter what, but at least Seasons 1 and 2 of the Clubhouse pass - at their release - gave us new items that weren't in the game before. Other than people getting this game on PS Plus now, I have no clue who they're trying to sell this stuff to at this point in the game's lifecycle.
    This stuff just makes me more upset that they got Tiger locked up. Can’t wait for next year when his model looks like TWPGA08 and he’s not even playable.
    I can’t take 2K seriously anymore.

    Told you many times guys... if you want a good to great career mode, you will have to play EA but it's going to be easy to master i.e. user friendly. If you want a more realistic golf game with thousand good courses, you will have to play 2K. And I expect the PGA 2K game will become Tiger Woods game and he will be playable.
