I mean should we really do this as gamers?
The guys at the likes of ND Bungie GG Insomniac to name a few make pretty OK games overall imo.
Sorry for not including PC gaming As my PC would not run pacman let alone a decent game. :)
I do mean all formats though.
So what am I saying here really?
Well as a kid I was in to various bands and went out and bought anything I could find my hands on to get more info or the latest record from them.
They were my pleasure in essence.
So we know the story here as adults.
Other people made the big bucks whilst the more naive ones perished.
Yet the ones that made it through the initial stages done pretty OK.
The Stones, U2, Queen, BB king, Sinatra.
You get my drift lol.
Yet today we have shows like American Idol Britain's got talent etc.
Nothing wrong with them as far as entertainment goes but the raw musician element seems to be gone.
So my long winded point here eventually.
Is the gaming business not another source of personal tastes?
We come on here and slag each other off about different games on different formats and which one rules.
Because we as gamers defend our tastes.
So the big boys get the money by selling second hand products of the games.
Does the developer get anything out of it?
I doubt it.
So for 10 bucks we make the choice here.
Do we support these guys to do better or do we just say ah well I saved a tenner so screw you?
Dont get me wrong here as I have bought many second hand games.
Yet the ones I like I tend to get new.
So your thoughts on it.
Should we just say feck it or should we support the artists we personally like?
