OMG! They are going to <something awful>!! I can remember when gaming was <nostalgic comment>. Those were the good old days. I won't buy <game title> from <publisher>. <Publisher Rep> is such a <vulgar label>! <Rival publisher> would never do this, they care about their customers. I'll just buy it used from <Store that sells used games> and not give them any of my money. Assholes.

<something awful>: If we put up with it, we make it acceptable.
<nostalgic comment>: No, it was never that good. Playing online was slow, games didn't automatically update and LPBs made the rest of us hate life.
<game title>: The next awesome game to come out.
<publisher>: The biggest publisher with the most money to throw out for the next awesome game.
<publisher rep>: The <vulgar label> who thinks <something awful> is a totally neat idea.
<vulgar label>: Use your imagination!
<rival publisher>: The 'other guys' who would screw us too, if they thought of it first.
<Store that sells used games>: The place where you will buy the game used for 10-15 USD off full retail only to discover that you need to buy some 20 USD DLC to play the game.

Seriously, since everyone (including myself) doesn't like these folks reaching into our pockets for more money, why do we even buy the games? Is it going to make our lives any better that we dropped 100+ hours into the game?

At some point, the amount of money that they are asking for the experience just isn't worth it anymore.

Edit: Fixed a spelling mistake!
