I spent almost $160 for two copies of the BFV Special Edition for myself and a friend as a gift. I was ok at the time paying what I did because I'm a longtime fan of the game and was anxious to get in and support the game. The extras seemed pretty weak, but I figured a little extra towards my favorite game is no biggie.
Cut to today and I see that the game is being sold for as low as $30 at major retailers and honestly, I feel genuinely robbed. I mean, it's just a week or so later and it's selling for less than half the price, and seeing the overall game sales, it looks like it'll probably remain discounted.
Needless to say, I feel robbed. I'm pissed. The game is buggy as hell, the interface is confusing af, and everything feels rushed. On top of all that, the "special edition" bonus items were straight garbage.
I have been a loyal, and I mean loyal, BF fan since Bad Company on the consoles, and have been a first day or pre order buyer since I fell in love with the game. Never again.
Never, ever again.
Keep making games for stockholders and answering to them, and screw the fanbase. Keep fleecing working cats like myself and make the suits happy.
Seriously, I feel had. Robbed. Screwed.
I'm not a rich guy. I mean, if the bonus crap wasn't so weak and I felt like I at least got something out of being robbed without a gun, it wouldn't be so bad. But that's not the case.
But like I said, you'll not get me again. I'll wait until the next one is half price a week later... if at all.
