With a deal like this I almost feel like I'm ripping EA off!
Here I was weighing up the options for my hard-earned money, when open my game to see this once-in-a-lifetime, limited time offer! To think that I had almost wasted my money on a couple AAA titles, or even a new jacket...
If I can be so bold as to switch sarcasm off for just a few moments: what the actual ****, EA?
Game developers work for years to create beloved AAA titles, and end up releasing their products for the same price as you're charging for....what? Nothing tangible, that's for sure!
Considering we don't take ownership for anything we're purchasing, you could at least try a little harder to make it worth such an absurdly high sum. There isn't even any new content - you may as well be printing your own money. Just pushing what's already on offer and reaping absurd rewards.
And to answer the predictable defenders of this policy: yes, I know no one is forcing us to buy it. But the fact is that there are enough people out there crazy/impulsive enough to reward this mind-blowing level of greed. If no one bought into this lunacy, they'd be forced to bring their prices down.
Anyway, despite enjoying certain aspects of the game, I had been considering uninstalling the game for reasons much like this. Looks like I just found the proverbial straw.
