When I see people complain about humble bundles, I see why piracy is rampant.

People literally complain about getting A-quality games, sometimes AAA-quality games, for $1. Not just one game, but a handful of games for a $1. A dollar that part of which goes to charity.

That's not enough, they want more. Some say it in jest, but there are people out there who actually believe Starcraft should be in the humble bundle.

Do you know what else you can get for a $1? A small hamburger. Probably not even a small hamburger in California.

Yet you're getting multiple commercial grade projects that teams of artists, programmers, moddlers, and composers spent years developing for $1.

We live in the I'm-entitled-to-something-for-nothing generation.

It's more about being self entitled. Most PC gamers are really self entitled to the point where they have 100 game backlogs because they buy B-grade games for $1 and never play them because they're on Steam.

Yet people complain that we don't get good games anymore.

I got the new weekly just for Cities XL Platinum. I like city builders And lets face it, even if I don't like the game, it was $1 and I got a bunch of other games in the bundle as well.

If it's not a game I'm looking forward to it I don't value it, naturally if there is a humble bundle with Five or Six games that I don't care about at all I won't pay anything more than a dollar for them. Actually, I probably wouldn't buy them unless I was just trying to get games on Steam that can drop cards - make a profit off of idling the games.

What about B- quality games?

Could not have just called it "high" quality. Triple A is its own thing. There isn't some weird system of Triple A through F.

Oh, you thought they made this game for you? You clearly bought the wrong game.

So if I want a certain game to be in a Humble Bundle, I'm self-entitled? Hmm.

I think you seriously over estimate the quality of indie games, most of which are lazy garbage.

The moderation staff and system on this website are both absolutely terrible.
