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

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


Valve cares about their fans and makes money.


Rockstar and CD Projekt, too.

I laugh when theres some gaming fanatic like "support the developers".

Go save the environment or hug a tree or something. Ill find the absolute cheapest method of playing the game, sometimes getting it free by simply renting with a code and could care less about the poor poor developers.


Well, don't cry when your favourite game doesn't get a sequel, then. I'm not saying all developers/publishers should be supported, I couldn't care less about some of them, like Crapcom, Activision or EA but some deserve to be fully supported by actual gamers, you being a cheap c**t isn't my problem.

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.


Dude... RE3 was my favorite. How could it have put you off THAT much when the formula barely changed?

I try my best to buy any game that I want, from any pub/dev, used or as cheap as I can.

If a company can save x cents or x dollars per disk that they ship by using another distribution company, then do you think that they won't because the drivers may lose their jobs?

Their goal is to make money. Mine is to spend less of it.

Maybe video games should cost less than 20 million and take less than 3 years to make. Because $60 a pop is some b*******!

I voted no but I will now. Nino Kuni WE fiasco has made me decide to buy the game used.

When you do things right, people won't be sure you've done anything at all.

No, of course not, this makes no sense at all.

If I want to play a game enough to buy it at all, of course I want to support the company who made it.

I only buy new anyway, so it's a moot point.
