How the @#$% can you say you can't afford PC games at full price if...

Why the anger? Many people could afford to pay full price, but few games (IMO) are worth full price, and with the frequent digital sales on the PC side, there's very little reason to pay full price unless you have to have it "right now". Also, you can build a fairly powerful gaming PC for $850-1000 that will high/max the majority of games out there at 1920x1080 at a good clip, it doesn't take $2500-3000+ or some other frequently cited BS price range to buy/build a gaming PC.

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.

So do millions of others - why do you think Gamestop is doing so well? You're not as unique as you think.

I get more frustrated by the people that get a gaming computer then pirate all there games then call themselves a true gamer..

So you're saying what separates a true gamer from a fake gamer is the amount they spend on games vs. the amount they play, or the amount they have, or any other more relevant number?

So if I spent 1 million dollars on the Saints Row 4 Dangerous Wad Edition--which is decidedly more than you ever have, or ever will spend on games--than I'm a vastly truer gamer than you?

Solid poast brah

I'm guessing you pirate games and you got hurt by my post I'm guessing.

So if a guy in a really nice car goes to the local super market and steals all the food and drinks they came into get you would be okay with that?

I've even seen torrents on indie games as well. So what's that like going around to your local corner shop or butchers and stealing everything that isn't nailed down and putting it in your really nice car. I bet you would be okay with that right.

Someone has a really expensive nice stand for a TV but no TV. You have a really nice TV so I guess that guy coming into your house and stealing your TV for his stand is also totally cool right? I bet you also have furniture that would look really good in that guys really big house. I bet it's okay if he takes all your furniture too.

I mean it's not like anyone really gets hurt from them. Stores don't have to get insurance upping the cost of food and you don't have to use your insurance to replace all your stuff and then you have to pay more each month for it. So no one really gets hurt so its all okay right?

I really can't wait for responses to this which are going to be like "I pirate to boycott games. Actually I'm boycotting it because I don't like the direction the game is heading. I'm on of 1000 people who are also boycotting this game too. We wont make a impact because we are not the majority and only a idiotic company would listen to the minority. We actually all really like the look of the game so we are all going to pirate it and then enjoy the crap out of it and then never buy it" Then we are going to go to gaming forums to rage about how the game has changed even though we never actually bought the game and have no right to say anything about how good or bad the game is.

He's calling you out on your laughable failure in logic.

Sounds like you are the butt hurt one.

... you play them on a gaming computer?!?!?!

You'd buy a brand new car at sticker price, wouldn't you?
