Quoted from PurpleTophat:
I love how people on this forum say "especially at this budget point" or refer to $1,500 as "not much money". For some people, that's a LOT of money to be spending on anything that isn't bills. Crazy friggin forum we have here.
It's an expensive hobby... No doubt about.
And like any hobby, there can be no limit on what some ppl can or will spend.
For those of us without unlimited funds, set a budget and search for the best game with what you can spend.
