One of the best things about buying games online is that they periodically go on sale. Unlike physical copies of games which usually retain their fifty to sixty dollar value, games on digital platforms like Steam often drop in price. However, even though most games sell for a discount at some point, one arrogant fucking game seems to think it’s too good to be sold for less than $20.
I’ve had this foot-centric, dark fantasy dating sim, Dark Soles, on my wishlist for a few years now, and never once has it dropped in price. Who the fuck do Dark Soles think they are? Sure, their Metacritic scores are quite high, but I think that’s due to the game’s niche demographic. I’ve seen many triple-A games with more content (albeit less foot-related) go for like half-off just six months after release. While I doubtlessly want to purchase and 100% complete Dark Soles, I think the developers are a little conceited for never discounting their game, which came out in 2014.
Here is a list of games that have gone on sale before Dark Soles has. Shower With Your Dad Simulator 2015, Hatoful Boyfriend, Watching Grass Grow in VR, Aviary Attorney and even Borderlands 2 have at some point been available at a bargain cost. Why the fuck does Dark Soles think they’re better?
It’s not even about the money, I’d gladly accept a meager 1% discounted price on this game. As I said, it’s the mere principle that Dark Soles insists it’s a $20 experience no matter what.
That all being said, if anyone would be willing to buy me Dark Soles, I’d gladly accept it.
