The 25 Biggest Collector's Edition Video Game Fails

Complex - The collector's mentality is possibly one of the worst aspects of consumer culture today.

Naturally, with them assuming obsessed fans will buy literally anything marked as exclusive there's very little incentive to make the products actually worthwhile. (Culture)
