“This latest trend of ‘Deluxe Edition’ which has a bad audio track included, but it’s just a money grab for ‘Early Access’ to play the game five days early, and they schedule the regular release on a Tuesday, meaning if you want to play it on getaway over the weekend, you need to pay an extra $30 and I think it’s bad.

You won’t sit on a game six months later and reminisce about how you got to start playing it five days early.”

“Most of the money you spend in single-player games after you buy them except for big DLC (Downloadable Content).

Maybe Sims DLC, half of them aren’t worth it.”
