Given the way Rockstar designed it so we have to either put in so many of our real world hours to grind for a few kilobucks of GTA0 money or else just buy their cash card, I would say it's a case of thieves stealing from thieves.
"Stealing" and "thieves" don't mean what you think they mean. You voluntarily playing the game and choosing to give Rockstar money for cash cards is, in absolutely no sense of the word, theft. It doesn't matter what kind of deluded reasoning you come up with to try to justify what you're doing, it's still deluded.
Right now you sound like Michael's son. You should go outside, maybe ride your bike down to the beach, and stay off the internet until your priorities in life shift back to a healthy place. Then you'll understand that choosing to pay a company to feed your pathological need for instant gratification is not the company's fault, let alone theft.
I'm Sorry but Rockstar made hundreds of millions on game sales before it had been out for a whole week. There should be absolutely NO need for them to make more profit off us gamers. Unless they're just that greedy.
Wow. How does it feel to be completely ignorant of how the world works? I'm genuinely curious. I have a pretty good imagination, but I can't manage to drop my understanding enough to try your mindset out for myself.
I'm not even sure where to begin with this. To start scratching the surface, I like how you think Rockstar owes you all the future DLC, missions, etc for free, as if buying the game (which has more single-player content than 99.9% of games sold at the same price) entitles you to a lifetime subscription of content updates on top of that. The worst part is, they actually are giving you that for free, and you're still somehow mad because they're managing to make money anyways.
It's also pretty comical that you're saying they should operate at a loss because they've already made "enough" money. Why don't you elaborate, how much is that exactly? What is "enough"? "Hundreds of millions"? So as soon as they made $200 million in sales, they should have given the rest of the copies away for free? Why not, right? They already made "enough", after all.
Although it's funny to consider, if they had given away free copies, you'd be pissed that you paid for yours and complain that you're entitled to a refund. It's funny how your opinion changes to match whatever viewpoint is the most self-centered.
It's pretty obvious you don't have a bright financial future ahead of you, and definitely won't be launching any IPOs in your lifetime. It might be hard to understand, but you can just take my word for it, there is no point that a business makes "enough" money and turns into a charity.
There's one reason that a business exists, and it isn't to pay an entire studio of programmers to do charity work for the rest of their lives just to satisfy all your personal whims. Enjoy your free multiplayer and take a good hard look in the mirror the next time you start to cry for a reason that's so obnoxiously entitled.
