You probably should have read his
post, especially the part about not letting other people (let alone one persons opinion in a video) dictate what he does with his life if what he does works for him, before you commented further
I agree with him though.
The internet and this community in particular seems to be plagued with the disease that makes people believe that everybody thinks like they do or that their singular opinions can speak for the majority.
Not to mention the other points made before, i.e:
-If people don't pre-order a game they know they want, they'll just buy on release day anyway. Because they want to play the game.
-If people don't buy on release because of bugs (hardly anybody), they'll buy after bugs. If the bugs aren't gamebreaking, they'll buy the game anyway because...they want to play the game.
-If people want to play games, they will
buy the games.
-Not everybody pre-orders for bonuses. Some people just pre-order because they are very confident in the game and know they will enjoy it. And because they want to play the game.
The real world is not as finicky as sites like OCN. Most people in life aren't judging a games worth by how well it will push their GPU, nor are they truly interested in modding and such.
A lot of people find it much easier to have fun than even the loudest whine fests would suggest, hence:
-"Apple sucks", but only on the internet.
-"Justin Bieber sucks", but only on the internet (well that's where the hating started anyway).
-"DRM sucks", but only on the internet. Consoles are the biggest "DRM" in history. Nobody hates consoles except forrr......the internet.
And when I say "internet" I meant tech geek sites like this that all have the same narrative, but bare almost no correlation with life outside of tech geek sites.
