Quoted from flynnibus:
So why can’t people have fun and escape later than you for less money and still have the same kinds of motivation?
Why does your definition require buying now and ignoring the financial differences?
2 yrs from now the game will be more fun because it will be more completed… and we can probably do it with less cost too. How does that make someone miss the point of the hobby?
I read your post as “i can ignore the cost because i can and chose to focus on the enjoyment it brings me” - but somehow you pigeonholed people that can’t ignore costs as somehow not interested in fun too?
I find it very odd as well. Some people think if you dont calculate potential losses on a pin you can’t enjoy pinball as much as a person who just pays the most and doesn’t care. Good for them if they have so much money they can toss it away. Spookys sales model is a perfect example of how to devalue a new pin. Scooby will be at least 1k off in the next couple months, buy then. Foo Poo was the strongest release yet. JJP flippers resolved can save the God Father. If it’s a multiball fest hmm jury’s out. But I agree with you being it’s odd how ones only considered a true enthusiast if they don’t care about money.
