Only fools pay full price, even if they're able.

It's not that we can't afford them at full price, it's that there's no reason to pay full price. Even Saints Row 4, which came out today, can be had for 20% off, and if you preordered it would have been 25% off.

Once we perfect building Mechs, I expect there to be a factory in Mexico pumping out a brand call Mechsican. I wanna buy me a Mechsican.

If games didn't get such deep discounts on PC, then people would pay full price for them. You are right, anyone who can afford a gaming computer, can afford a PC game. It's just a matter of how many full-priced PC games they can buy. It probably used to be that most people would buy 3 to 4 games a year...whereas now people tend to just buy everything that gets released (eventually) that even slightly interests them.

$20 on sale or $50 at full price... At a $30 difference, 4 games will cost you a mobo... 7 games will cost you a CPU... 10 games will cost you a GPU. Having money for one thing doesn't mean you have unlimited money for everything else you want.

you could save $30.00 on Tomb Raider by waiting until the last Summer Sale to get it, IIRC

if you want the same cost, just throw the extra $30.00 into a bonfire and watch it burn for extra entertainment

I didn't/don't buy console games at full price either. I wait 'til their inevitable price drop or cheap used sales. In other words, I'm not a dumb ass or a part of the sheeple.

Like the other guy said, it's not that I can't afford them, it's that I don't want to pay full price for them. In many instances, it is foolish.

Some games are worth it if I know I'm going to get hundreds of hours out of them, but I'm simply not willing to throw money away on a 10-20 hour game that I'm going to play once and never touch again, latest example being Saints Row 4.

Who said that? But....


"How the **** can you say you can't afford a 72"TV and four cars if you own a house"


Derp logic. Then again, you didn't know what fighting games were so I'd expect dumb scrub statements from you...

wow, you almost were respectable until you separated the words in "dumbass" and used the phrase "sheeple" in any context whatsoever
