Rincewind53: This is a great time to mention my "Entertainment Value Calculator" when figuring out whether to buy a video game. Basically, figuring that these days, the average cost of a movie is $12, and provides around 2 hours of entertainment, then if a video game is $60, it should provide at a minimum 10 hours of entertainment. If a game only has a six hour single player, and I don't intend to use the multiplayer, I'd wait until the price dropped to at least $36.
Mike_LowELL: God, I feel like crap for writing that all out. I already know how this thread is going to go.
Krieghund: If games give me 20 hours of entertainment each, I need 30 or 40 a year. If they give me 200 hours of entertainment, I only need 3 or 4 a year.
Mike_LowELL: People don't want to pay sixty dollars for the software
RexTalionis: Either that or we are at the end of this console generation and everyone is waiting for the next console release.
