I rarely buy new/full priced games nowadays. The last one that I bought was TacOps and I already regret paying the full price for it as I'm not spending a lot of time playing it and I can't even participate in the TacOps forum discussion because Battlefront doesn't want Linux users on its forums.
Generally, to me, full-priced games are very expensive due to that idiotic economic stuff - for example a 50$ game costs 21 minimal hourly wages here instead 7 minimal hourly wages. Like work of a person here would be 3 times worse than work of a foreigner. This world is a sad joke.
When it comes to first hand games in last year I have bought TacOps (100 PLN), Raptor: Call of the Shadows (13 PLN ) and Duke Nukem the Manhattan Project (9 PLN) - both bought during the holiday sale, Humble Indie Bundle 2 (18 PLN). That's it.
In 2009 it was just Knight 'n' Grail [Premium C64 Disk Edition] (70 PLN), Psykozone ( 10 PLN ), Sean O'Connor's Windows Games (100 PLN ), War Plan Orange (6 PLN ) Battles in Italy ( 6 PLN ) Battles in Normandy ( 6 PLN ) - these are the only Matrix Games that I have bought - they were in a bargain bin in Tesco and I have found it kinda sad that they just lie there, with boxes that are getting more and more damaged, so I have bought them. Too bad that Wine still isn't able to render the map in War Plan Orange.
Most of the games that I buy now, are vintage games that I collect. Nice big boxes, paper manuals, maps and stuff like that. Also, they are rare which makes their value real.
People shouldn't ask themselves why schools get shoot up.
They should ask themselves why people who finish schools burned out due to mobbing aren't receiving high enough compensations to not seek vengeance.
