The "Don't like it, don't buy it" attitude towards add-ons in games is stupid...
This topic is stupid.
Just doesn't work that way. "Don't like it don't buy it" would have caused segregation to perpetuate much longer than it actually did thanks to legislation.
So TC, you are supporting speaking out against bad practices that hurts the consumers
So why are you always spouting troll and mocking everyone who is speaking out about the bad practices MS did with the XBone?
If gameshark wasn't invented... games wont be as popular anymore
Please stop stating incorrect statements. Not all Halo 2 maps were paid. "The Bonus map pack was released on April 25, 2005, as a free download sponsored by Mountain Dew."
if i dont like or want something i dont get it, it's as simple as that, dont try and force OPINION on others as fact.
if i like something i buy it, but i dont come on here and spout my oppinion like fact, people need to quit doing THAT.
too many people get butt-hurt by the truth of things, your argument is senseless, what would have people instead? i notice you have not really touched that, if your going to make an argument, please make one that makes sense.

OK, one map pack was subsidised by Bungie tying in their advertising for Halo 2 with Mountain Dew, the other 3 were paid. This is grasping at straws from yourself to support a massively flawed argument. How does Bungie receiving $$$ from Mountain Dew equate to treating their customers with any kind of respect? It's part of their overall aim - making money.
You also ignored everything else from the post?
Please dig up another pointless link from the internet that somehow proves that people who enjoy DLC/microtransactions are in the wrong, and you are right.

You are a genius.

You are equating microtransactions in a leisurely entertainment hobby to a serious ethical issue concerning fundamental human rights.
Don't worry, when you grow up you'll understand how the world works.

Considering that you make this same argument(don't like it don't buy it)constantly when I comes to your precious X1, I can't take your post seriously.
You are a hypocrite, TC.
I'm not the nicest person you'll meet.
Have a real point please.
The best way I can affect things is by voting with my wallet on what solutions I support.
That isn't to say that the industry always goes my way. It doesn't. There are instances where these monetization strategies are abused.
Lamenting about things out of my control seems like an incredible waste of time and energy.
Ultimately, the free market will adjust accordingly to perceived abusive policies. The gaming industry will continue evolve and you can either be part of that or be simply left behind.

Doesn't matter cause people will buy whatever anyways, because...self control.
