I was looking forward to all the missions that are available and the ways you can steal money online waaaaay before these cash cards were ever mentioned and this doesn't change my anticipation. I want to play the game for the sake of having fun. I think the missions are fun. So that's what I'm looking forward too.
I never said I like the idea of cash cards. Just that it doesn't bother me. It definitely doesn't deter me from being excited about the upcoming release of online mode.
If the idea of other players buying in game cash with real money bothers you so much and you're not looking forward to playing online then don't play online.
Simple as that.
Do you honestly think I'd be talking about subjects and getting concerned over such decisions to the degree I am if I didn't think I was going to enjoy it? Quote me once where I say I am not looking forward to it at all.
I can simply recognize when a potentially amazing game has things in it that are going to effect my experience in a negative manner. Just because I recognize these things doesn't mean that I dislike the game, I just notice huge flaws in design that are against everything I believe the gaming industry should be doing. I am going to be playing the game as I find it fun, but I am still going to call the company out when they do scumbag moves like this. And if the grind is over the top like a free to play game when it comes out I will continue to argue against the moves they are putting through irrespective of how fun I find the game or not.
Don't have to hate the game to notice a company taking advantage of it's playerbase. They know for a fact you will want to play the game which is why they can get away with f*cking people up the arse with microtransactions. To just let that go with no discussion on it is wrong in my eyes.
If people tolerate this sh*t, we are all going to end up buying full price games full of limitations designed around in game purchases as a standard. So I will 100% argue against any form of this greed.
If people didn't like the game they wouldn't be bothered.
