... yet reviles the idea of pre-orders. I understand that there are fundamental differences in the sense that these Kickstarted games may or may not come to existence based on the results of the program, but it is also more or less a way of showing one's support for a game in advance with a deposit of money, which is exactly what pre-orders are.

No one hates pre-orders. What people hate is having to pre-order a game to get the complete experience.

When has a game ever cut out a crucial piece of content for the sake of a pre-order? The most you can ever seem to get out of pre-order dlc is a weapon, skin, or crappy one-off mission.

For pre-orders, people hate bonus content that are reserved for specific retailers. No one hates pre-orders themselves though.

Excuse me for interpreting the word "complete" as an indication that there would otherwise be important features missing. If those sorts of bonuses being excluded from a non-pre-ordered copy is enough for it to be considered incomplete then fair enough, I just don't see it.

Lol. What's your problem? All I did was explain why people don't like pre-orders.

Sorry I didn't mean it sarcastically like "excuuuuuuuse meeee" or anything like that. I meant I wish to literally be excused for mis-interpreting your comment.

to get the 100% experience you also need to buy a season pass.
