    I remember when the scope and user interaction level were 5% of what we have now.

    Games have become more complex. Complexity adds a number of additional variables.

    Basically if you're whining about patches and dlc go lock yourself in a basement with a PS2.

    Yes games are certainly more complex and intractable. Troubleshooting errors and bugs, applying the fix if you find it. Yes very much more interactive. DLCs are great and all if they add NEW content. Not just maps or modes that should have been included at release in the first place. Talking about Star Wars Battlefart here.

    You guys know that parents still buy their kids videogames, right? There are a lot of parents who go look at BT, then CNA, then Game, then Musica, determine that the price is the same everywhere for a physical copy anyway and just buy wherever they're comfortable. Not everyone buys online, not everyone finds value in price checking for other retailers. Up to a few years ago, my parents were exactly that. I know some of the parents of my younger brother's friends who do the same thing now. I've been in BT Games outlets where parents ask me for help with choosing a game and asking about prices because they're not sure what's a good deal.

    There exist people who are impatient enough to want to just grab the game off the shelf and walk out of the store. A good friend of mine at college was that person. They don't want to wait three or four days for their game to arrive or download, they want it right there and then, ready for consumption once they pop the disc into the tray.

    Asking R999.95 for an always-online racing game that stops you from playing the single-player campaign when the internet is disconnected is egregious, and I'm hoping that this pricing is a phase that will soon pass, whereby things return to normal as our economic situation improves.

    I've bought games for R1500 but then its imports or collectors editions. How do I feel about R1000 normal edition games? Well... you can get Dying light on steam for R250 on a sale now. It might be a year late but that doesn't make the game less playable.

    Besides most online shooters lasts for 2-3 months before the first dlc destroys the player base anyway.

    well if Parents are buying their "kids" R1000 games then clearly they don't have a cash problem.... Most parents will also shop around... just because they are a parents they don't lose all intelligence/common sense when buying something...

    I remember when games used to be complete at launch and didn't have bits and pieces cut out to be sold later.
