Because clearly I'm a soulless monster for thinking that people shouldn't let a company fuck with them.AndyFromMonday said:No, I'm not. You asked me a question and I decided to answer your question with another question. And since you know I use Steam it should be pretty obvious I've only bought 2 games on there, Left 4 Dead 2 and Call of Duty 4. I have not been continuously supplying that company with money but that's besides the point. The point is, this business practice is deplorable and giving your attitude I'm going to assume you're American since you seem to not give a fuck about people who are affected by this.
Yeah, if I was European and had to pay more for games than Americans, or even just was pissed off at how Valve treated their customers, I'd find a new way to get my games. In fact, I already have other methods of getting games. Valve is nothing near a monopoly. It's not as though these customers had to buy from Valve to play games at all, far from it.
So if they're simply trying to cheat Valve's system, for whatever reason Valve's doing it, they don't have much of a moral ground to go on. It's like punching out a bouncer outside a club in an entertainment district, because he didn't let you in. But you're not even cheating them out of money, just giving them less money than they otherwise would have gotten. So not only do you have a poor sense of your options, you seem to have a problem with your frontal lobe too.
