The Manifesto on the Evils of GameTap

misfit13b Too lazy to read? Let me sum it up for you. (79 comments)

*Whaaaaaaa!*

The whinefest "Games are Not Fruit" is a total joke.

There's not a lot of point in buying a game that only runs under DOS today. And I'm not at all sure I'd want to buy the original Civ, at this point, either (though a great game it was); I'd want the most recent version.

And then a few paragraphs later...

Games are not fruit; they do not spoil.

Oh right. Unless, like you pointed out, they're on an older OS or a sequel comes out. Dumbass.

The market is changing. Adapt or die, Costikyan, and take your ugly-ass website with you.
