The other issue is when they make in game items priced higher than what people can reasonably grind out. If you have to grind all day for weeks to buy something, IMO, it costs too much and it was probably done intentionally to sell game currency.

At some point we are either going to have to accept DLC and microtransactions as the way it is, or accept paying more than 59.99 for a game. I don't think we can have both.
agreed, it's been quite some time since the standard game MSRP hit $60.00.

R.I.P. Zawarudo, may you OC angels' wings in heaven.
If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.
