Gaming is expensive
    #24972711 - 02/07/18 12:47 AM (7 months, 9 days ago)

Systems are an arm and a leg, the 60$ priceframes never dropped in the 20 years of gaming, controllers are 60$ so its impossible to get 4 of em. Microtransactions are a plague to mankind. Paywalls are unclimbable. There are a LOT of cheaters because its so easy to make a hack, but so hard to get caught in the mass of many other cheaters. To beat any game or advance the leaderboards, you need a team of advanced neckbeards to team up on a daily basis and sell your souls to whichever game company.


Rant over.

There are plenty of great old games to play. And great old systems to play them on. And in anything in technology old = cheap

Not sure how true that is with games. NES and SNES stuff is really expensive these days. Sega consoles are a little better, but I think the big boom in retro gaming has killed the days when you could just buy crates of games for nothing. Although I guess slightly old stuff that ins't "SUPER COOL RETRO" yet like PS2 and Gamecube is probably cheap.

Unacceptable. Nah, they're obviously the best option if you're not really particular about you games. Most of the old consoles have everdrives that will fit the entire library on one cart now, too.

gaming is an expensive hobby, even the classic systems go for $100:shrug:
but its well worth it who knows how much these older with go for in the future..on that note.
i once found a $400 musical machine game for 25 cents in barn fleamarket  and there it was the holy grail of atari 2600 games sittin on a shelf with a 25 cent  sticker on the title :mad2: which the games loses value with a tear marks, ended up getting the game for free they just let me have it th a purchase of an asteroids game..lol, ill never forget that day.

Gaming is an investiment for sure. Especially for PC gaming.

Consoles are slightly more affordable. U can find free or discount games sometimes.

PC gaming is the best long term investment.  Once you build a nice rig once, you don't have to touch it for a lot of years and then when you do get the point where its starting to show its age bad enough you usually can get away with just a current gen video card.

Steam also is a wondrous platform.  Not only do games end up dirt cheap after they've been out for a bit, but they have awesome sales, etc.. They also have a refund policy so if you start a game and it sucks an hour in you can refund it and no harm no foul.  You can almost try before you buy, something not seen much in console gaming retailers.

And of course the hardware is just superior.
