Why do people keep making topics on If a game is worth x amount of dollars?

I mean, if you can't afford a video game, maybe get your priorities straight. And plus, you'll still probably end up buying it anyway, m'right?

Should I buy Metal Gear Solid HD Collection for $20?
Is Dark Souls worth $16?
blah blah blah.

And for those who need help deciding between 2-3+ games you're interested in: just buy the one you wanna play now and buy the other one later. done.

Because they want to know if it is worth their money. Even if a game is cheap why would you want to waste your money on it if it sucks when you can spend it on something you enjoy?

Someday when you aren't living with mom and dad you will learn all about money management, opportunity cost, fiscal responsibility, and informed consumerism.

Exactly true. TC is getting owned, not once but twice!

If you have to question whether or not you can afford a game, get your priorities straight. You're life can't always revolve around your hobby.

You mean spend if on something they enjoy. There is no 'you' when you're asking others to spend your money for you.

It isn't a matter of affording, it is a matter of wisely using your money. You very clearly have never had any economic independence.

People tend to live on tight budgets and do like to have entertainment. It helps them get through their hardships. When they are living on a budget they want to make an informed decision and get the most value for their buck.

It's not just people that are low on money that need to get their priorities straight but everyone. Why waste a lot of money on a sports car (or any other expensive item) when you can a more practical item and use the money for a better cause?

heres a much better question....

Why do so many come in topics like that and give opinions, most of the time negative ones on games they never played?
