His expectations for the price range are alarmingly narrow. Ten bucks can get you a great game as we've seen on here time and time again.


If one's willing to consider old gems (on GOG for instance) then 10 bucks can actually buy hundreds of hours of more fun than this little piece of crap game will ever provide.

Then of course there are people who think Bethesda makes good RPGs and Halo is the best shooter ever because, you know, online multiplayer and it has a story.

Unheard of at that day and age... or not. :eyebrow:

My point being that he may actually now know any better. There are tons of people out there that never had a chance to play the true greats due to being too young, or they choose to remain ignorant (most often combined with "Uck, those graphics? I can't play that!") - usually the same crowd that considered the Star Wars prequel trilogy good movies.

I usually call them gaming neophytes and they get all pissy and recalcitrant and claim that I just want to insult and troll them, which is only half true. I do insult them on purpose, but the rest is pity, not trolling. :haha:
