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.

It's ethical to pirate most major developers games :smilingpuppy:

Namely EA

Mindfreezey is right. PC all the way! Costs slightly more up front, but saves you a ton in the long term and it's better.

I have nothing against piracy as long as at some point you really purchase the games that you really enjoy and play.  There are so many shit games out there that are marketing genius but game play trash that I've felt burned far more than I've been satisfied.  These days for me though money isn't as tight so I can afford to buy some games throughout the month and be OK if they are just "so so".  I usually still 'try before I buy' in the case of really questionable games or really expensive ones.  Some developers I always support because they have been consistently good and haven't let me down yet.  Others are notoriously bad and are lucky if I buy a game from them.  EA is part of the notoriously bad group. 

I always try to support small indie devs also, even if the games are only OK because they are the ones that will keep the market fresh with new ideas and break the stale mold of big companies just rehashing the same shit with newer graphics.  Some of them come up with brilliant masterpieces too in areas you would never expect.  FTL comes to mind on that front. The game is fairly simple, pixel graphics, rogue like, but INSANELY fun and the soundtrack is delightful!

Larian studios with the diviniity: original sin series is fucking amazing and a fresh take on the old isometric RPG style.  OS2 has some of the best dialogue and voice acting I've heard in years.  I'm never cracked up playing an RPG quite as much in a long long long time.

Yeah I definitely support a good number of devs I really respect - I used to respect Bethesda a ton and always buy their stuff without testing - so when I was living on a mountain with no internet - I drove into town to buy FO4 physical copy, cause well... no internet... turned out there was only 5gb of data on the disc and 20+ to dl :lol: I understand it's not exactly efficient to have a lot of discs for a modern game (not that 2 blurays couldn't hold the whole damn game or anything), but it should be an option for a major dev single player offline game :lol: I mean shit- GTAV's physical copy had all the discs necessary to play singleplayer offline.

I have good interwebs now so I'm back to DLing anything I buy, but the laziness of Bethesda made me mad at them - their package didn't say you had to DL shit and that it only contained 1/5th of the game :kingcrankey:

I've been doing audio for a new local game dev for the last 6 months developing a yet unfunded title - so it'll be interesting to see what things are like from the other side of the curtain

If they want people to buy their games - which for the most part I do, they shouldn't pull bullshit on their customers - cause that's when I don't.
