Buy 3DS and select game, get Pokemon X/Y for free during March

Nintendo and Toys R Us are running a good promotion in March that will give new 3DS buyers or people with 3DS systems looking to buy select games in March a free digital copy of Pokemon X/Y. (3DS, Pokemon X and Y)

Good deal, but it doesn't look retroactive, which means I got screwed again (already redeemed every game on the list besides Yoshi's Island). ~_~

It's a simple, clear-cut promotion meant to draw in new buyers, not reward people who already own the system. Lots of companies do this kind of thing. I don't see how you got "screwed" in any sense of the word, unless you're one of those people with a horrible misconstrued sense of entitlement.

1) I don't know why you're explaining the promotion to me. I get it and merely commented that it doesn't look retroactive.
2) I got "screwed" because I've been saving my Pikachu 3DS XL and Luigi's Mansion Dark Moon, Pokemon Y, A Link Between Worlds, Bravely Default, Mario and Luigi Dream Team and Paper Mario vouchers for a promotion like this. However, the games I happened to redeem (mostly to hit platinum a year or two ago) were included in this promotion, so I am left with Yoshi's New Island or skipping out on it.
3) Why exactly are you calling me out for being "entitled"? It isn't like I said Nintendo owes me anything, I am done buying Nintendo games or anything immature. I simply said I got screwed, but still admitted it was a good deal.

I swear, some people just want to one up people because they don't give an essay explaining why I used a term that someone takes negatively.

I only called you out for being "entitled" because the connotative feeling of your entire comment reads exactly like that. I'm sorry if you don't agree, but most people don't exactly use the word "screwed" in a positive light, and when juxtaposed with the overall tone of your comment, it SEEMS as if you're whining over it, even if you didn't intend it to be read that way.

And, perhaps most important of all, those kinds of comments are a prevailing breed left all over N4G. It's frankly surprising that you weren't sincerely complaining about this otherwise quaint promotion, and I hope you can understand why people might possibly assume you were.
