    There is no virtue in anything anymore. I have yet to come across a game that is not utter and complete shit and will be laughed at for it's crude stupidity in the future.

    Hey, guys, you know what would be better than bitching about EA on the internet? Not giving EA our money! Holy shit, wouldn't that be something?

    So you're a hipster as well as a retard. Not that there is much of a difference.

    Or how about bitching about EA (which is fun) while at the same time not giving them our money?
    Because that's what I'm doing.

    I loved Civ

    Did you get Madden 2013 brah? S'almost as sick as 2012! Actually, I can't figure out what the difference is. I'll just drink the rest of this case of Natty Light.

    I don't play EA games. I'm pretty sure their next batch of unfinished games are going to include a "Press X to reload for $1.99" feature.

    It really is. Otherwise I'd believe that gaming companies expect to sell fifty dollar games to people who live in nations which has an average wage of about two hundred dollars a month.

    Because people in the nations that make 15k a month could just buy in the nations that make .2k, like I said your an idiot. I lived in the Philippines and I remember them having 45 american games in one cartage. I am more than well aware of how exploitative the gaming industry is.

    Which also is the real reason you give a shit about econ at all, you think government policies are what makes game prices so high. lol you sad autistic fuck.

    Right, so what you're saying is that video game companies wish to sell to the hundred or so people in every third world nation. Especially companies that sell a million times copies of a game. What's bizarre is that these companies haven't influenced third world government's to crack down on piracy. It seems bizarre to me that they won't, if it's so important to them that a hundred people in that nation buy one of the millions of copies of their platinum game. I mean they could at least bitch about it like they did with reselling here in the first world.

    Actually, government is what makes game prices so high. They're the ones enforcing copyright. They're the ones who get a cut of the action from all parts of the supply chain.

    Well, with vidya I dunno, but the pharmas certainly do that. ROCHE sells the diazepam at bulk prices in third world countries, and tho obviously they don't make as much money, it's nonetheless another cut of the pie

    In fact, I don't know what you are arguin...that big companies just sell in first world countries? Lol

    ****************

    And exactly how much or what percentage of the $59.99 of this:

    My "argument" was that they don't expect much of a profit (or any profit) from third world nations.

    Depends on the government. And "big bad government" is fucking redundant.

    No, that's mine. Yours is that they give zero fucks

    It's kinda astounding you haven't still got the fact that all is documented in a forum and that I can check it in like 5 seconds...you aren't very bright, are you?

    Why do you resort to calling people homosexuals to cause hurt?

    Do you think homosexuality is something to be ashamed of?
