Do you ever go on the internet for the first time during the day and feel like anywhere you go there isn't an ounce of anyone being positive, rather just everyone *****ing?

Oh my god, yes. All the time, but today especially. It's like everybody's grumpy today. I just want to be all, smile! You're alive!

Exactly. Where's the fun and joy?
I am alive. I took a couple of days off from the internet. Perhaps I should've taken an extended break.

Fair point, but I disagree. I think for a small upgrade like this, they should charge less, but obviously that would never happen.

I still want it though. I'm just reluctantly paying $60.

It's not exactly something you can disagree with, dude. If you're paying $60, it's because you feel it's worth $60. Whether that's due to gameplay, online play, time you can game with friends, nostalgia... it doesn't matter. If you're willing to pay it, that's what it's worth to you.

Take the example of a $100 bill. Its actual worth is probably pennies -- the amount of money it costs for the ink and paper. But its perceived value is $100, and that's the value ascribed to it.

They shouldn't charge less.

Why should they? We live in a capitalist society? They sell plenty at $67 a pop.

I know they won't, it wouldn't be good for them. I just wish it was cheaper. I'm sure everyone does.

I don't know how to argue this, but I still feel like I disagree

Right, but I'm not arguing the price point. I'm saying that if you buy something -- anything -- then you believe that the price you pay for it is what it's worth.

Maybe I'm just missing something.

But if you didn't feel that something was worth your money and worth what you're paying for it, why would you buy it in the first place?

I do like the upgrades that they've made, and don't want to skip over them. So I'm going to buy the game. I'm willing to pay $60 to get those upgrades, but I don't feel they are worth quite that much.

Not sure how else to explain it.

So it's not so much the game itself that makes it worth it to you, but the continuity.

I think you're both right.

HAWT is technically right (the best type of right) but at the same time what Deku is saying is that he will fork out the money, but he's less pumped than he thinks he should be for a new installment.

But he does still think it's worth it.

Ah, okay. Different meanings of the word 'worth.' Makes sense.
