I've never owned any game system made by Sega. Then again, I was exactly old enough to own one or just wasn't born yet. I've seen a Sega Genesis at a local Wal-Mart where they sell it and it has 60 buit-in games and you can other Genesis games either by an SD card or purchasing the game itself. I never found out the price, but I have to say it did interest me. There's also been some remake's of the Sega Game Gear where you can play games via an SD card and emulate them. I've also seen that it also has built-in games as well. I also had a GameCube and a GameBoy Advance SP.
I'm sure he liked Ground Zeroes but taking '5' points off for the price is weird. Well, I guess you don't since Ground Zeroes is taking place after Peace Walker and is the prequel to The Phantom Pain. Either way, I still think it's great to replay the older games. I'm sure Kojima will put references, Easter Eggs and whatever else from earlier games. I've seen people not interested in Phantom Pain because of the more "serious" story and that it lacks Kojima's humour even though he's pointed out that it'll still have stupid jokes. Others, tend to not like the switch to Kiefer Sutherland but I think he's actually better as the voice for Big Boss during the newest trailer for The Phantom Pain and Nuclear was an amazing song.
I won't disagree that there aren’t "dicks" or people buying used when they're not on a tight-budget. But I don’t see the point in taking away the option for people that are on a tight-budget (like me) or those who find it cheaper in the long-run and the game's been out a while that it's probably made enough profit to get a sequel made or released stateside. That's when I'll contemplate buying used. By the time I purchase a new release, is when either all discussion has died down or one of those two things have occurred that I described above. Yeah, online passes and season passes are different but I just hope they don't get crazy with either. Some companys like the aspect of DLC (which I don't hate) I just don't want everything to become DLC. I never understood when it's DLC that should have been in the game or if the game has already too much space taken up. Blu-Ray discs can handle a lot of space and so can flash memory cartridges but I think people overreacted to DLC most of the time. Like when Nintendo had that Free Mercedez Benz DLC for Mario Kart 8. I mean, it's FREE and no one is forcing you to download & get it.
At this point, in time, I don't exactly see any point to the VGD. I mean, I'll post but I'll never actually see any discussion back. I've seen a decline in Moderator's and Gaia (especially the economy) to the point where they actually don't care anymore. The only thing the Moderator's do care about are those people they always seem to get on their case. I've seen plenty of topics over the last few days that go against the rules of the VGD but they haven't even been moved after I've reported them. I think some of those people do have an interest in those games that I described. Heck, I've seen plenty of people who only like western gaming and game that has fanservice/ecchi themes sickens them that people actually play them. Then you have the other side of gaming where they'll play Japanese/niche games but not exactly western games. I'll actually play a good amount of both, but like I've said before, it has to interest me or I don't play it.
