Maybe that 17-year-old should learn to make grownup decisions with his scarce resources. He didn't have to preorder. He could have bought a physical copy so he could trade it in. Or, best of all, he could have waited a few months and bought it on sale -- or skipped it entirely. If you wait a few months after release, games usually drop from $60 to $20 or $30.
It's so easy to be a grownup and not to be fooled. Rather than indulging the Internet hate-swarmers, why not join me and urge these people to grow up?
With every other product in the world you have a refund period.
I'm OK with a refund period. I just want Internet whiners and hate-swarmers to grow up and stop burdening everyone with their foolishness and entitlement.
Everyone had the chance to know whatever they needed to know to make an informed choice. But that requires being a grownup and waiting a week or two to buy.
Is there a demo of NMS? I don't pre-order any games and if there isn't a playing demo download, the chances of me buying it are zero.
Cool. Thanks for being a grownup. Let's ask others to grow up now.
But if a game really sucks, a refund is a reasonable solution. If somebody has bought dozens of games and only asked for a refund once, it's pretty fair to say that this should be the publisher's problem.
It doesn't suck. It's ok. It's just not "great" and the minimalistic gameplay isn't fun for some people.
I think Sony's policy is one lifetime refund on a digital purchase as a courtesy. That seems about right.
If you choose to gamble on being an early adopter, don't go crying when your gamble doesn't pay off. Or if you're going to cry about it if it's not what you wanted, then wait and make sure it's what you want before you buy it. Like a grownup.
No, the reviews from the 2 weeks after the game's release.
It's not being childish to expect a refund when a company lies to you about the product they're selling.
Not always. In this case it is.
(Unless you bought it on Steam and are asking for a refund because it doesn't function on your PC configuration)
Acting like a grownup is helpful in general. Protecting fools from their own foolishness is a never-ending task. What do they ever do to deserve anyone's help anyway? We'll all be better off if they just grow up.
It's actually ok. Not great, but not shitty either -- at least on console.
He's not a Sony person. But yeah, name-calling is rarely helpful. Most people on Twitter would be better off without Twitter.
Who cares what it was "pitched as"? Wait and read the reviews and stop being a tool.
Also, having to keep your guard up at all times least some predatory asshole takes advantage of you is a miserable and wasteful way to live.
Then take a gamble sometimes. But be a grownup and accept that you chose to take a risk. Don't go crying when it doesn't work out.
Congratulations. You're a grown-up, responsible adult. The rest of the Internet should grow up and follow your example. Thanks.
So be a grownup and read the reviews before you buy. Or be a grownup and accept the consequences of choosing to gamble by buying it before you know for sure what you're getting.

I've been saying for 25 years now that I may not wanna live forever, but 70 years or so is wayyyyy too short.
I could live a few thousand years eating cheeseburgers and chocolate.
Internet fanboys buy into hype, then cry when their childlike foolishness leads them to disappointment and regret. Childlike entitlement kicks in and tantrums follow. It happens over and over, year after year.
It's a game about exploration and discovery. Were they supposed to give you a comprehensive list of everything that could possibly happen in the game before you bought it? A grownup would either wait and buy the game after reading enough reviews to make a wise decision, or take a gamble and pre-order and accept that gambles sometimes pay off and sometimes don't.
Don't you people get tired of acting like children? Why not just grow up and stop making things worse for yourself and the people around you?
And don't the rest of you get tired of these people who are old enough to be grownups demanding to be indulged in their foolishness like 10-year-olds? Why not tell them to grow up instead of indulging their ongoing foolishness?
