valve... why have you abandoned us? why!?

Money. Buying pc games is too risky. You buy something you don't like and you're fucked. You may get lucky and buy only games you love so all your money feels well spent but the way the platform in general behaves you will likely buy 3 POS products for every 1 good product. On PC's that will likely cost you $200 to get a good game. On consoles it's still probably the same ratio but the cost should be more like $70 or $80. Resale options protect the consumer. The PC platform got rid of these and consumers are fleeing to a safer place to spend money.

This just in: PC games drop rapidly in price. Playing demos and reading reviews reduces the number of duds you buy. Film at 11.

I think it's been 15 years since I spent more than $10 on a PC game that I didn't play because I thought it sucked.
