Ships Ahoy - Metro 2033

THQ announces the North American release of Metro 2033, the post-apocalyptic shooter developed by 4A Games. The Metro 2033 Website has a launch trailer (also on GameTrailers), and the game is also available on Steam, per this announcement. Word is: "Based on a novel by the Russian author Dmitry Glukhovsky, Metro 2033 combines classic first-person-shooter action with elements of survival horror and intelligent plot and character development not seen before in gaming, to create a true genre original. Metro 2033 is now available to purchase at retail stores around the world for both the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and Games for Windows®."

You get the entire game, play as much as you want, then decide what to pay, likely being harder on the game than you should in order to get out of paying for it.
This is precisely the problem with this "P2P demo" bullshit. It's an entitlement complex that inherently implies you are allowed to play as much as you want to before deciding if you want to purchase it.

What that means is that your bar for deciding to purchase or not goes way up. Whether you want to admit it or not, you're human - don't pretend like if you think a game is average, or just good, but not mindblowing-excellent - you're going to pay for it. But you may play through the entire thing anyway. Or maybe you'll get a few hours of entertainment out of it then uninstall it.

Regardless - if you spend any significant time with it at all, then that means it has value. Unless you admit that your time is completely worthless? Maybe the game's not worth $50 for you. Well, then wait until it's $20-30 before you buy it and play it. You're by no means entitled to play it right now when it costs $50.


It's rationalization and justification, not logical, not at all honest. If you want to play a game, then pay for it. If you don't want to pay for it, then don't play it. It's really quite simple. No one's entitled to play a few hours then decide to pay later.



Hell, maybe there are a couple of rare souls here who genuinely buy absolutely everything they play for more than a demo's length of gameplay, say, 20-30 minutes. But you are an outlier. You are not normal. You are not the person that I or others care about here, so don't defend yourselves from someone who isn't addressing you.
