Remember when pre-order bonuses were cool? I remember a time when the bonuses we received were actually something to get excited about. Now, it’s either an in-game outfit or, if we’re lucky, $5 off our purchase. That’s perfectly fine for someone like me, but I’m considering those who may have a bit of a problem. You see for me, I live a 5 minute walk away from a GameStop. For others, going to GameStop may be a 30 minute drive. With the bonuses the way they are today, is getting a bonus helmet really worth going to GameStop before the release of a title? Is it really worth wasting over $5 in gas or bus fare to get to a GameStop twice for one title? Sure, we have free will and no one is forcing anyone to do anything. But why has pre-order bonuses become so lame? What happened to all the cool stuff that were actually worth reserving for?
