Op Ed

Ars Technica - Why complaints about Valve's Portal 2 ARG miss the point.
As the "main" game progressed, the titles in the Potato Sack were updated with new levels and content. If you were able to finish that content you earned Potatoes that were used to move the whole thing along. The thing is, the new content was all Portal themed, and gave new life to games people may have already finished. In a world where people are used to paying real money for new content for their games, these developers were giving away new content for free.

MCV - Give 'em an inch.
But there's no escaping the fact that some of you, and some of the wider gaming public, are for want of a more eloquent description morons. Last month we had to shut down comments on because of this very phenomenon. A tragic and feeble few were ruining the fun for the decent and noble many.

By Tumbler's own kind of logic I declare that he tries to scam us all. Burn him!

Seriously Tumbler, it's sufficient when you drop your unsustainable claims just once. Simply share your deeper insight, recognize when you are all alone and drop it.
But I can't bear to read it all over again and again. Ain't it enough when MCV flags your kind "morons"?

It is exactly as both articles commented it. In the worst case you could have simply ignored all the mojo, as I did. It isn't Valve's mistake when some people know no boundaries with their expectations. You know, this is ... the real world, right? No need to mention this fact everywhere, at least not for the normal people.
