What's next, "I only drink water if it's clean."? Pfff, new kids.
In my time when all you knew about a game before buying was what you read on a box or had heard from other people, if the game turned out be "not so great" we were still expected to play it rather than let it, and the money spent on it, "go to waste".
Just like if you buy a whole pack of ice cream and don't quite like the flavor you would still eat it, you wouldn't just throw all that ice cream away. It was the same with games.
Back in 1982 my parents bought me an original Namco's "Pac-Man". I hated it, I found the gameplay stressful and frustrating (constantly on the run from the ghosts) and the 'wakka, wakka' sound gave me headaches. Nevertheless my mom made me finish 5 levels each day during summer brake because "They had bought me the damn thing and I was gonna damn well play it". It was the worst holiday season ever but it taught me about values and discipline.
The spoiled kids today get everything handed to them on a silver platter plus they get to be picky about what's on
the said platter. It's a disgrace.
