Why not? The game re-seller is making money off of used games, why shouldn't the people who put the time and effort into actually making the game make money as well?
1 person buys a brand-new game for $60. They play it, take it into Game-Stop, and get $15 for it. Game-Stop turns around and sells it to someone else for $45 dollars. Game-stop has just made a profit of $30 and the developer/publisher of the game has lost 100% of the revenues from a missed new copy sale and gets nothing from the used copy sale. That process can repeat over and over with the same copy of the game. Each time, the re-seller is making money while the developers get nada.
Thinking they should get a portion of that revenue is not an unreasonable viewpoint to have about their livelihood.
I'm shocked sometimes at the pure vitriole you guys have for people who make games for a living.
