I used to just buy these games at launch. They were shit but you could rely on Paradox to fix them over the next year and your money was simply an investment.

Nowadays they sell you those patches for money and I'm just gonna wait for the complete edition (as opposed to the Complete Edition which is not complete at all, at least in the EU3 case) a few years down the road.

Score one for greed.
