Fano: They should invent "Push the lever for a pellet:the game" and be done with it.
xcv: dletter: "My pet is named after my real pet, and has the best mansion! PLEASE DON"T DO THIS!!!!"And this is where you should see the signs that you need help.They could probably milk the madness by selling tamagotchi-like apps for peoples pets to live on offline, maybe commemorative items like plates and urns too. But then it's got to be more lucrative to hook those players on another IAPville.

Nem Wan: Charging to unlock on-disc content should be a practice that consumers revolt against. Never buy from that company again. DLC should be created after the main game is completed and improve on the game based on user feedback. I like the "Rockstar Pass" approach where you pay a set price and then you get everything they release. Or wait a year till a Complete Edition of the game comes out.
dj_spanmaster: The problem with Mafia Wars (in 2010) was script bots that ruined the experience. Why play when you can have your robot do it for you? I quit and never tried MW2, and thank FSM, that game's addictive.
jso2897: I wonder if companies who develop "real" games will learn anything from this, or will continue to play the DLC card until their customers, too, realize they are getting rooked.
lordargent: I submitted this last year."Please don't remove petville. I been playing for 4 yrs. and I'M going to miss my pet Jaime....why do you want cause depression for me and others. Why do you want to kill my pet?"
