The first person still has their account with the developer, who has to store all their settings, acheivements, scores, and what ever else the first person has saved.

If that game is resold five times, they are now storing five peoples info, indefinitely, with the revenue of one.

My point still stands.

1. Too much time between save points during difficult parts, this includes hour long boss battles. If I die, I don't want to replay the same long stretch again and again... 2. Forced time wasting. I don't mind big maps or mazes, just don't send me from one end to the other on foot. Give me a quick movement option. Don't put in stupid long cut scenes or fill the game with cut scenes every 5 minutes. I want to actually play the game. 3.jumping puzzles in games that shouldn't have them. I don't want to have to jump to a small platform, backflip off the ledge, swing off the pole and the land on the one rock on the lake. Especially because your camera sucks and your jumping controls were limited to jumping onto a crate the entire game leading up to this point. 3.

It's supposed to be a jury of your peers, and in a way, should be along the same lines of the peer review process for scientific papers. If I want my paper on astro physics to be peer reviewed, I don't get bob the plumber and tom the gardener to look at it. If the people doing the reviewing and making the judgment aren't qualified to understand the information, then how can you trust their judgment.

SD tvs are a thing of the past. Can you even still buy a SD TV? Maybe if you are going to walmart and buying the 6 inch B&W TV on the bargain shelf. Technology changes, if you are playing HD games on a SD TV, it's possibly time to upgrade.

Also, I'm color blind, but I don't get pissy when a game comes out that involves matching colors. I cannot play boogie bunnies. Simply cannot. I haven't lost any sleep over it.

People will buy anything that's one to a customer.
