Should I be surprised that I can tell who posted an article based solely on the tone of the title and included text?

Top Ten Most Collectible Video Games

ubermenschen Re:A wise investment? (583 comments)

You'd be right if you weren't totally wrong. people collect old cars because of their beauty, power, etc. It is not a total function of nostalgia or vicarious vitality. For example, I am only 24 but I would really enjoy a 57 Chevy Bel-air or a 57 Thunderbird. My PARENTS weren't even born then.

And this whole thing about Magic cards... boy'o'boy. You're someone who used to play, became disenchanted (pun-not-intended), and quit. Well I hate to tell you this but magic is alive and well and the cards are worth a truck load. A beta Black louts goes for $300 - $500 dollars on a routine basis. Newer, chase rares can go for $15 - $30. And, even in a stagnate economy, you can make more money playing Magic professionally than you can being a freaking code monkey.

I'll let you return to whatever world you live in now.
