Companies releasing discs without the entire game on them, requiring you to then download the game you just bought physically. Off the top of my head, Toys 4 Bob did this with Spyro Reignited very recently, putting one game out of three on the actual disc or cartridge. and back in 2015 Activision released Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 with like, almost nothing on the disc and everything was downloaded. Bethesda, ever a shining example of bad practices, just released a cardboard disc for Fallout 76, a game made out of anti consumer practices, there wasn't a real physical edition, it was literally just a cardboard disc with a code.
id and Bethesda patched Doom Eternal one month or so after the game's release with an excessive anti-cheat for a multiplayer almost nobody uses, active even if you're playing in single player, this update also tanked performance for a lot of players though id insists it wasn't the anti-cheat. And while non supported OSes are not their responsibility, it still sucks the update made the game unplayable for Linux users using Steam's Proton. Massive backlash ensued and they actually removed the anti-cheat.
Also, about a month after Crash Team Racing came out and the game got all it's rave reviews, they added microtransactions lmao. If you're gonna have'em at least be honest and ship the game with them so you don't get praised for not having them first.
