I only buy the best games

The ones with the most hype, and minimum 4 star rating.

Ones I know I will play beyond the 20 minute induction period.

Q: Excluding official App Store Reviewers, why do you purchase these obviously unpolished games that are littered with flaws and boredom?

Every gamer likes different things, something that looks "unpolished" to you may look really great to others.

There are TONS of good games in the app store that have less than a 4-star average rating, you are really missing out on a lot if that is how you deem which games are worth purchasing.

Playing: FIFA 12 Monster Island Quarrel Deluxe FIFA Superstars Fix-It-Up

very well said


and if you are relying on highly rated app store ratings...there are plenty of games with all 5 star reviews...all of which are fake

You shouldn't have told him that, we could have just directed him to a bunch of them and pretended we were really hyped about them
