we believe something, then we make it happen for real

So... how many people do believe in "1984" or "Brave New World"? Or "Neuromancer"? Don't laugh, because maybe someday we really will be drinking Soma in cyberspace, under the ever-watching eye of the Big Brother - forever. Or do you think that only good dreams may come true, and nightmares can't? Why your attitude is valid "for all of us", and cynicism is not? I am really curious about the difference.

I do generally agree on that, although there are some exceptions to that rule - where the sheer reputation of a developer studio is enough to guarantee a good game. So yes, I've preordered Witcher 3 and Pillars of Eternity because I'm almost 100% sure that these games will worth the money.

But mostly yes, I wait for reviews and more often than not buy games on Steam sale or something like that.

The trouble with money is it costs too much!
