Because people know that for games that contain that amount of detail that WitE and WitP AE Matrix is the only place that has them. Plus are willing to pay whatever price for them so they do not have to use up the entire basement to play these types of games :) Maybe that is why I find it so hard to understand why people are compliaiong about DW because I own bot WitP AE and WitE.
Also DW is more of a mainstream game in the sense that a lot of people here think that there would be many people interested in it if it were cheaper. Versus not many people would be interested in WitP AE or WitE, even if those games were $10 (or more) cheaper.
But overall, I have paid more for the Civ IV series, HoI 3, Diablo, etc than I did for DW. At least I paid $20 less for the expansions for DW than those that bought them as they came out. Many series (like HoI, etc.) can be bought cheaply with all the expansions for those that waited. So it boils down to, if you wamt to wait, that's fine as there are lots of other games to play. Sometimes, I am willing to wait, while other times I am not. Sometimes i realize that waiting is not going to save me a lot (like for DW) so I take the plunge. I figure it is better to be able to play the game months rather than wait for a sale that may or may not save me much money.
As I said before if $10 or $20 extra dollars rally matters that much, you should not be buying ANY games at all . If you have a set budget for games and you would rather get 2-3 games (that most likely will not be as good imho) versus DW, then that is ok. Nothing wrong about that. But suggesting that Matrix cahnge its business model because a number of people are complianing about the cost is not going to happen.
But you have every right to post and express your views. I fully support your right to do so as there is no right or wrong answers here. Just opinions (and everyone has one lol).
