I just don't like waiting for something that I paid for to be here and functioning the release date. I buy a ton of shit online, but never games that I really want to be playing ever again. I may buy games that are time wasters through amazon. I buy a bunch of guitar stuff online and have no problems. But something as fragile as a small circular disc, trusted in the hands of someone who throws packages around, isn't really gonna make me want to use them again. I don't want to have to wait to play with my friends online. Sure, it's not me starving or anything, but it is something I pay for a service to get. And next time, I'll just go do it myself at the store. That way if it doesn't work, I can just drive 3 miles and get another instead of waiting 5 days or more.

That sounds far too reasonable.

And it's called hyperbole, douche. I was making fun of the fact that someone used 'never' - an absolute - to describe something that would happen later in time.

But if you want, I could do a miniature lecture on writing well and pendantry.

Your turn.

ok, so I guess there ISN'T a big, fat line between never buying games online and wanting more convenience, because that's why I never buy games online; it's more convenient.

Both of us have said we buy lots of other stuff online. Leave it be, please.

No, you couldn't. At least, not based on anything that I've seen from you.

I was writing a longer post about how I agree with Zhukov and k0k0, based on how stupid it is to order a game online, pay for it and the shipping, and then potentially have to send it back and wait even longer to play it...but then I accidentally hit the back button, so fuck it.

I buy shirts online because it's just awesome for unique stuff (teefury, fright-rags, etc), and I buy books because they're cheap and I'm usually not pre-ordering new ones. Shit, even DVDs. Games, though...that's just stupid. As stupid as trying to condemn people in first world countries, in 2011, for opting for the more convenient purchase methods.

i've ordered games online before, but it was only when that was the only way to get exclusives (i.e. the t-shirt I got with fallout 3 collectors edition). Plus, it was from the online store of a retailer that actually has a storefront near me, so I might've still been able to return/exchange a faulty disc

first you find a seedy street and look around for a guy in a puffy jacket possibly with a backpack
then you catch his eye and then look all nonchalant and when you walk by you go whatup and maybe give him a secret handshake

then you ask him to hook you up and hopefully he has the PAL version of games you want

Well apparently my UPS doesn't deliver here until 8 pm, so in order to get my game I have to wait til the end of the day. Plus if it's broken, I get to strip down nude and play with my wiener because there's nothing else to do for the next 3 days. Of course I do have a shelf of like 80 other games, so I am talking out of my ass.

FOR SHITS AND GIGGLES LET'S JUST SAY THAT I RECEIVE A GAME THAT IS BROKEN HERE IS WHAT I WOULD DO

EXCLAIM "OH MY, IT APPEARS THAT MY GAME IS NOT FUNCTIONING"
GO ONLINE AND DEAL WITH IT LIKE A FUCKING GROWN UP INSTEAD OF THROWING A FIT LIKE A RETARDED 8 YEAR OLD
MASTURBATE TO INTERNET PORN
LIFE GOES ON

ALSO I NEVER GET BROKEN SHITTY GAMES (UNLESS YOU COUNT WHEN I GOT BRINK BECAUSE THAT GAME WAS FUNCTIONALLY SHITTY AND BROKEN ) BECAUSE I AM A GOD FEARING TAX PAYING AMERICAN AND GODBLESS US ALL.

USA USA USA USA USA

I live in the USA and my game was fuckin broken in a non-working way, probably due to UPS's need to throw around every package that isn't 60 pounds or more. I did deal with it like a grown up, but I also felt the need to complain because it was my first time ordering a game online and this kind of ruined it for me.

I think you are just a filthy sinner and probably unclean in the eyes of our Lord, Jesus Christ, PRAISE HIS NAME IN THE HIGHEST.

I get enough of that talk from my mother. She also declares me a filthy sinner. But she says it a lot more politely.

If you were a real American you would have gotten in your pickup truck, spent the $6 in gas to drive to the store, and just buy it in person. That way if your game is damaged you can just take it the fuck back.

I mostly buy my games online because it's cheaper, and because I don't mind waiting on account of all the other damn games I've got in the backlog.

Sometimes I wonder when this endless cycle of buying games and putting them away until I play the games I bought earlier first started. I think it was shortly after I started making my own money.

Do you not buy new games until you have progressed through your backlog? Then when your ready to play what was a new game, you can buy it on the cheap used? Or are you like me and if you dont get it now you forget about it and end up never playing it?
