Ya, I gotta agree with you here. I was thinking the exact same thing the first time I tried to take a Viper home to the garage, I thought it was GRAND THEFT AUTO.
And money doesn't mean sh*t anyways, so I really don't get that argument form people. Helloooo, it's not real!
What a sh*tty argument. Just because it isn't "real" doesn't mean it has no value. Why the f*ck are you playing the game that you paid for then if everything in it is not "real" and of no value. Did you just spend $60 for a shiny disc?
I think you need to learn to stop playing games as a way to try and accomplish something in life. Strive for something a little more tangible. I play my games for entertainment, just like watching a movie or TV show. All that matters is if that time spent was fun and entertaining, not the amount of money in my virtual bank account. So far my $60 has been well spent.
Can you imagine if we started having Movie Watching Leaderboards? I think I'd be pretty high up there, I'm really f*cking good at watching movies!!!
