Near the end of Metro:: Last Light I literally ran out of oxygen filters for the gas mask. I ended up needing to abuse a glitch to make a 1 minute filter last through a few checkpoints to restock to something reasonable. In that one moment , I desperately wished that I could just buy 5 minutes worth of oxygen for like $3. I was at an impasse and literally could not progress until I found about a glitch.

I was playing heavily stealthy and couldn't loot many people either which hurt me. Maybe I got careless too and forgot to remove it during underground levels. Maybe the game originally shouldn't be broken like that. I don't know , but I do know that microtransactions aren't as evil as the internet blindly claims they are.

Nope. Nada, no --- did I say never? yep well never.
I play games to be entertained. Some people choose to play games to be disappointed, so they can let everyone on the Internet know about it. Their loss.

Microtransactions are an acceptable money making tool IF the things they sell will not make it easier for you to win, beat another player, or be basically essential for advancement

microtransactions are pretty great. especially since they are optional and you dont HAVE to touch any of them to enjoy the game.

one thing I hate about this gen, gamers hate options now days, they want every single thing available exactly the way they want them to be available.

You gonna try playing it on PC? Gonna need to keep dem settings low. Ridiculously demanding game.
