Op Ed

  • PC Gamer - Steam's new Point Shop makes you face the awful truth of how much money you spend on Steam. Thanks Phlegm.
    "For Valve, the Points Shop seems like yet another clever way to keep people absorbed in the Steam ecosystem, a little nudge towards spending more money. But I'm not sure the designers thought about what Points do if you never spend them. They'll just keep piling up with every purchase. For me, I think the Points Shop may actually do the opposite of what Valve wants. It'll make me hesitate, just a little guilty, every time I'm about to buy a game."

That's a silly article. The only thing that should make you feel ashamed is if you can't pay your bills due to your video game spending habits. As long as you're doing ok financially, who cares if you bought a few games that will add to your backlog and you were granted some points for it to use on profile fluff?

I picture the writer being some 32 year old shaved head millennial with a nose piercing.

This. This right here was my thoughts exactly. I also felt that it was extremely stupid & meant only for suckers who love click bait.

Why should anyone feel ashamed at all for buying games if they are financially secure? Oh wait... so-called "game journalists" (LOL) shaming their idea of "gamers" for their "hobby"... business as usual I guess. It's because of stupid crap articles like this that have made me lose almost all the trust I once had gaming journalism.
