Have you ever bought a used game just to not support the company?

I buy used if I can't find it new, but that's about it. I mean, if I'm buying the game, then I obviously think the product they made is worthy of being supported - at least once. I've been burned a few times, but I find it to be a failing of the game, and not the people who developed or published the game.

Nonsense. Name me a single video game company that is a registered charity. Money is all.


Valve cares about their fans and makes money.

No. If you actually do this then you are a sad POS. Have some self control. If you hate a company that much then you don't get to play it. Seriously, its like going on strike but still asking for pay.

I don't think about a company when I'm buying games. If I like it, I'll get it.

I got Resident Evil 1: Director's Cut and Resident Evil 2 used for the PS2. Like them so much I got Resident Evil 3: Nemesis new for the PC and hated what they had done to the series.

Resident Evil Code: Veronica X was just as bad in a different way.

Didn't get RE4 until it was free as part of a deal. Played it a bunch, but that probably puts me even with Capcom at this point.

...You people do realize used games do NOT hurt a single damn thing, right?


Another ignorant consumer. Your used purchase hurts the developers because it shows that you're willing to buy the game, but not willing to pay the developers. What kind of bull is that?

Never have but my show of hatred for certain games and/or companies rarely strays outside internet forums.
