F**k "supporting" video games.
I'm a consumer - make something that I'll buy!

Honestly tired of supporting a business mentality which tries appeals to a mainstream. Basically forces me as a gamer to lower my standards.

This constant "support the developers" propaganda is getting old (and friggin lame).

There are very few games that have been made in the last 10 years that I feel are worth $60, and if you try to force me to pay $60 for them I will simply tell you to go f**k yourself, and I will stop playing games.

The video game industry brings in MASSIVE amounts of cash every year, yet we have to hear a never ending cry-fest over used game sales?
Seriously, GTFO and STFU already. Start making games that are worth $60 and people will pay that much for them. Problem solved.

Oh, and if they are somehow able to stop used game sales, they better also make sure they have solved the piracy problem, because piracy is going to absolutely explode.

But yet on the same hand you countless whining over how games are too expensive? Nothing is cheap in this world.

I respect what you have said, and everyone is entitled to their opinions.

With that said, every game is worth buying, but not all are worth the $60 I agree. Pirating may see a huge increase, but as will those thrown in prison or get sued because of it.

You do realize that there are millions of gamers in the world right?

I would like for you to define "mainstream" as by what you have said I am guessing you mean the likes of Call of Duty or Halo.

Now judging by what I have gathered, this statement appears to be just flat out wrong. The film and music industry both support the "mainstream", and yet you still have high standards for that? I do not get it.

They got my Support, no more selling my games to gamestop or even buying used games from gamestop & no more rentals.

This article has completely turned me off to gaming. Because of a poor business model and greed consumers are to pick up the slack made by devs and pubs?

I don't care how much something cost to make if it's complete garbage, unplayable or just plain lame.

Why not beat gamestop and companies of the like at their own game? Open up brick and mortars or online shops where gamers can buy, trade, sell new and used games where the profit goes right back in-house to devs and pubs?

I don't care what they come up with just leave us the consumer out of it because in the end it will be the industry that loses this fight.

Just checked to see how much I've spent on games in the last 2 years and it's well over $2000. Thanks to the this article I see a great way to save money in the future.
