Music is badass. I play guitar, bass, harmonica and I sing. I'm in a thrash metal band. Gaming is good. As are texting and movies from the 80s 90s and early 2000s. Trolls however, are bad, but troll logic is entertaining. That's all you're getting.

oh so you actually buy the game after you test it out

im okay with that as long as you actually buy the game

Or maybe you should stop pirating anyway and wait for the price to go down, you entitled fuckwit.

I have a problem paying any amount of money for something that isn't what I was supposed to be getting. If, to use the other guy's example, you purchased a pizza that was actually devoid of cheese and any other toppings, you'd be throwing a fit and demanding your money back, but when someone releases a shitty unfinished game and people do the same thing jackasses like you whine about it.
#155 - skir (04/27/2015) [-]
in my analogy you are eating half the pizza

if you play half the game and decide you don't like it then you still have to pay

download the trial version if you just want to test it out

If it was good enough to pirate, it was good enough to buy.

Have you not been reading the comments? I pirate stuff because I want to play the retail version of the game before I decide whether it's worth buying. If I play it and realize that it's an unfinished mess of glitches and errors then I'm not wasting my money. It's like asking someone to buy a rancid, moldy loaf of bread because they tried a piece of it. It's really not complicated.

imagine yourself sitting in a pizza parlor

you order a full pizza but only eat half of it

then you say you don't like how the pizza tastes and refuse to pay

is there anything wrong with what you did?

It's more like you order a pizza and they charge you full price for it, then give you the base of the pizza without and sauce or cheese or toppings. When you ask what's up they tell you that all that stuff comes for additional cost.

You didn't get half a pizza, you got an unfinished pizza.
#135 - skir (04/27/2015) [-]
you also forgot that the analogy states that you ate half the pizza
#134 - skir (04/27/2015) [-]
although i see your point, the underlying analogy still holds

it doesn't matter if you enjoyed a product or service. if you use a product outside of reasonable trial experience then you are obligated to pay for it.

again this is why there are trials for games. your counterpoint would fit best into the situation of pre ordering a game and then becoming disappointed with the promises

Oh yeah, I pay for all my games. Doesn't make me any less frustrated when they're shite.

Like, if they charged me 80 bucks for a complete game I'd be all for it. Match prices to inflation, right? That 60 dollars for an unfinished game + 20 bucks of DLC that finishes it just feels bad.
#142 - skir (04/27/2015) [-]
hmmm thats actually a great point!

I think we're so used to a whole package within a game from the era of pre-online gaming. Where we would go to the store, buy a game, and experience the entirety of it from just the game itself without worrying about downloading DLC or other things.

We might have become accustomed to that but maybe it's time to get used to the way things are now. It might be a little more expensive but gaming itself is growing and that a good thing.

We have to be adaptive and open to change. Technology is literally expanding at an exponential rate and for us to react so negatively at a single variance is childish.

I'm not saying that we should never be okay with any kind of change. But with literally every kind of innovation that has been introduced to the gaming market the gamers have reacted with hostility. this is why nintendo is so successful with their fanbase. They don't really change their core model much.

Not the same thing. Me disliking a pizza, the way it tastes, whatever, is my personal opinion. I paid for a pizza and I received a pizza. Whether I like how it tastes or not doesn't matter.

If I pay $60 for a game that crashes constantly, has textures glitching in and out of existence, oftentimes features NPCs and other things randomly clipping through the floor, and involves things being broken to the point of being unable to finish the game/complete certain missions, then I did not get what I paid for. I paid for a game and received an unfinished piece of shit. None of this would be a problem if demos were still a thing, but they're not, and the ones that do exist are very often not accurate representations of the final product. Hell, I've beta-tested games where the beta was more polished than the actual game that I wasted money on.

I pirate things to make sure they're worth my money because I'm done blindly firing $60 at games that barely deserve the name. Yes, reviews and let's plays are things, but they're not the same thing as sitting down and actually playing the game, and the only ways you can do that anymore are A. Buy it and hope you don't get fucked or B. Pirate it (or borrow it from someone else seeing as it's literally the same thing, yet I never see anyone bitching about that), make sure it's worth your money, THEN buy it.

if you actually look at the link it compares men and women in the same field, and until i see actual info that backs up his claim about the work hours, it doesn't mean anything to me

shut up and read actual reports instead of colorful graphs that just agree with your point of view.

Well you know what isn't a conspiracy, patterns. As soon as medicare became mandatory, the price of packages shot through the roof. The cost of premium packages became the cost of the lowest covering packages. When they make vaccine shots mandatory those prices will shoot through the roof. Soon so much shit will be mandatory that average working folks like me will be put in jail for not being able to afford it. I'm trying to say that taking away people's freedom is more scary than if they work or not. Even if they do work, it's unconstitutional to force people to get it. "Those who want to sacrifice a little bit of freedom for security deserve neither."
