They've been lied and brainwashed. I've met a couple of those people with a similar mentality, but at least got some of them thinking. I remember meeting one mother that work at a Mexican restaurant. She had a banned herson from playing Fortnite. He took her credit card without permission and spent some money. Thankfully it wasn't in the high thousands but it was a couple hundred. Dude got grounded for a long while.Yeah honestly we forget that people who play video games couldn't give half a shit about 90% of the stuff we care about. I have so many casual gaming friends who actually like the presence of microtransactions, and pre-ordering. It's not always their fault, but it is sad to see that the fight against bullshit video game practices is such an uphill one.
I also remember another time at a best buy, I told this mother and son who are all about the digital only, "what happens when your internet goes out, can't pay the bills, the game gets delisted from the digital store, or you lose power?". If your game is online only, you're definitely screwed. They couldn't respond with anything other than silence and a quiet "Oh".
