Before stooping to grammar correction, ask yourself.... "Am I really stuck with nothing to say?"
I buy all my games used so...everyone?
Aside from Nintendo.
I don't boycott anything, in any area of my life. No business has ever pissed me off to that level.

Boycotting can and does have an impact (although not always). It can take time a lot of times, but it can change things eventually. I boycott Gamestop because of something they did to me. If what they did to me they also did to tons of other people and they stuck up for themselves, they would change their practices quickly. They would have to just so they could stay in business. When a company is losing money, they have to make changes if they plan to stick around in the years to come. Those changes include but are not limited to a change in pricing, better customer service, updates, and perhaps enhancing quality.
Sometimes boycotting isn't all about one person trying to bring down a corporation. Sometimes pride in a person takes over and standing up for yourself means something. It makes you feel good inside about not plopping down your hard-earned money at some place that you feel doesn't appreciate you. Some of us know something that others don't know, and because of that our conscience won't allow us to purchase something from someone until some change is made. There are always plenty of other places that would love for you to spend your money with them. In this day and age where people are spending less and less, a good customer who is willing to spend money consistantly is becoming more and more valuable.
On topic, I boycott Square Enix unti they localize Type-0 which many are saying is the best Final Fantasy title in years (some even say EVER). I also boycott Microsoft because they are an evil corporation that are against human rights and fully support the gov in spying on the people (along with Facebook, and AT&T). They don't mind stomping on The Constitution for profit.
If you want to see FF Type-0 localized, put it in your sig and go here to sign: http://www.gopetition.com/petitions/project-crystallis.html
I boycotted EB Games in Australia, but not for whiney reasons like them not knowing what new games are coming out, or what systems they're on, their trade prices or their po prices...... but since I worked for them for almost 4 years......
My boycott is real. i don't even step foot in their stores.
Greer Logic: "I don't want a game that's always the same. I want a game that never changes"
I buy games for fun. What about you guys?
same here.I don't boycott publishers/developers because,it's just petty and stupid.
I used to care but now I take a pill for that http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1KaOrSuWZeM
Might add SquareEnix to the list but I just bought Kingdom Hearts 3DS two weeks ago and just really amazed. I just hope Nomura gets a better career opportunity that would consider him taking the offer.

CronoDyne posted...jubjub360 posted...If you're a-okay with developers and publishers systematically screwing over their consumers and ruining the video game industry with their constant need to nickle and dime, yes, you're a blind loyalist. You refer to me as hateful because I actually see and recognize bad business practices of companies and refuse to give them any support. It's a pretty silly and inconsistent insult, blaming the victim for defending themselves against the aggressor. By supporting these companies by buying their games, good or bad, you're saying it's okay for them to continue what they're doing. So sorry I actually have some convictions in life and don't kowtow to the whim of publishers.
Congrats, you've now proven you're a broken record with no counter argument to any of my points. Good job on that.
Goodbye Chewy. You were the best friend I could ask for. Rest in peace, buddy.
