If you let this slide, it's a matter of time before you have to register a credit card before you start playing a game because every action you want to perform in game will have a price tag on it.
Want to switch costumes? Sure $5
Want to take a shortcut? Sure, another $5
Want to upgrade your weapon? Another $5 please
Want to customize your keyboard and mouse buttons? Cough up another $5
Want to play at your monitors native resolution? Drop another Lincoln
It's not about the money but ethics, but I guess when it comes to money, all ethics are thrown out the window. Enjoy your new world.
I find it ironic you say this because I'm one of the tightest people with my money. I take hours to shop, I only buy deals, but $5 for a bonus difficulty is hardly worth an outcry to me. It's stupid in a way, sure, but, then just don't buy it, vote with your wallet. Most of those things you listed inhibit my ability to play, large difference. I can play on any difficulty I wan't, it doesn't change much to me. My native resolution? Huge difference, customize? Huge difference.
Having a different tolerance doesn't make me wrong, nor willingly numb. This is a hobby, not my life, if it got to that point I would stop buying those games. $5 for a stupid difficulty? Whatever, I got it free for SUPPORTING by pre-ordering.
But wait, we don't pre-order because we get screwed. But wait, we get screwed for not pre-ordering, but wait, we get screwed for this and that, blah blah.
I hate to break it to you, but the way most of these companies are ran now-a-days are to make a profit, this isn't the 80's and 90's anymore.Edited by Ghost23 - 5/16/13 at 8:35am
