So are you saying game updates don't need any effort or human resources to make ? People spend their money or "whatever the fk else" they make the way they want to and you do the same, mate. They enjoy what the developers make ? Go buy their DIGITAL theme, or DIGITAL soundtracks, or support them by any means. Some things have value and aren't necessarily PHYSICAL. You live in the past if you think only physical tangible things have value.

And if you really must, this is wrong the place because I bet RFDers are the best example of people spending their money correctly.

I know a few folks who worked in mobile gaming industry and the demographics behind the pay to win models are interesting. Most tend to be older, and the older they are the more likely they will spend big dollars averaging $500-1000 a year.

Same could be said about gambling at casinos. It's pay to win.

Back on topic: There aren't any compelling premium games plus this directly competes against Google Stadia, even if Google Stadia costs twice as much, you're getting games that aren't pay to win and full featured, great graphics etc.

The only winner in this play pass is Google and it feels like developers are getting the short end of stick of this deal.

Same concept but VASTLY different payout.
The "mechanics" are the same (I've even encountered the same "holding" music as a slot machine) but the difference is that you can get money back at the casino.
The only thing you're getting in a game is literally nothing.

That's not to say that I haven't thrown money at a problem via a p2w game and I regret most of them.
There's a few that weren't too expensive that I had a few cheap laughs at, but generally speaking I've also spent far too much money.

At least in a casino you know the odds and rewards.
Do you not have anything else to do rather than argue with strangers on the internet
Nope. That's why I'm on the internet arguing with strangers. If I had anything better to do I'd probably be doing it.
