I’ve never been more torn in all my decades of playing and making video games.
The gamer in me is going absolutely bananas about how last year, for the first time in pretty much history, every single console game had MASSIVE discounts at the end of the year. Sure, Steam has had these sales forever, but that’s a whole different beast. Fact is, since the start of the video game industry, new releases held their value for at least the first 3-4 months. Imagine my elation when I saw that all the hottest new games were seeing unprecedented sales. Blockbusters like Wolfenstein 2, Uncharted, Prey, Assassin’s Creed, and even the impenetrable Call of Duty were 50% off! Needless to say, I snatched up every damn game I could.
