Boycotting $10 gameloft games etc

Im getting sick of seeing sequels thats look WORSE than the original!!

The main page picture of that GL GTA game is horrible, im pretty sure the faces didnt look THAT bad in the first one..

Either way, Im sick of getting shoveled $10 games that are total garbage. Im not going to be part of this $10 = max profit ideology. I want to buy a real game, not a turd, and I really dont care about the price as long as its fair...

Id rather save my $10 for eating out then waste space on these ugly all-iOS catering games..

You're the only troll here. The new Gameloft "GTA game" costs $6.99, not $10.

Well, for one, the new Gangstar sells for $6.99, not $10.00. It's also a better game than the first one, even if the graphics don't look as good to you (in some ways they are better).

another thing I dont get is people saying, oh the kids can't afford a $40 game, they only have a few dollars etc...

then how is the DS or PSP successful?

Or am I supposed to drop $10 every 3 months on the new GL garbage... just give me one game a year at $40 eh??

But Hodapp thinks that $10 the upper limit on games on the appstore!!! Naturally Gameloft will set their $6.99 app at $10.
