It’s interesting to me how much people complain these days about having to pay for things. I just got done reading some reviews for a game that has a free trial for the first level. After that, it’s an in-app purchase to get the remainder of the game. The number of people complaining about how bad it sucks that they have to pay for the rest of the game, is staggering. It even comes through from the passive aggressive ones: “shame I had to pay to play the rest of the game. :(” The game, incidentally, is $6.
At some point, we’ve created a world where we literally expect something for nothing. We get AAA level games and software for dirt cheap and yet all you see in comments is how much people complain about it the price. (Even if the price is $1.) I’m continually flabbergasted when I see a AAA game from a AAA publisher (EA, for example) and people moan about the $10 price tag. It seems, to me, that the app store is destroying the expectations that people have regarding to software.
Either that or most reviews are written by 10 year olds. … Likely.
