I'm pretty sure you would say that if you didn't have a 4G eh?
And complaining "games aren't good because we made it so that it supports older devices", that's complete BS. There's a reason why there are HD versions of games in the store. If Rage can work on iPhone 3G so smoothly, a simply lego game can't? If ID can make a 1GB game that lasts only half an hour, how many extra lines of code does it take to support older devices? I doubt it will take 1GB worth of code to support an iPhone that's 99% the same.
Your argument is kind of self defeating. I got a 4th gen because that's the way developers are going. I could have stuck with my original 2G, but I bought a 3GS when developers were moving that way, and I bought a 4th gen now because that's where the games I want to play are headed. I could have just complained that the games don't work on my 2G, but I accepted that technology moves on and developers move with it.
So saying I'd be complaining if I did't have a 4th gen is missing the point completely--I bought a 4th gen because I accept that's where the tech is headed and thought I'd do something other than complain.
And the truth is, I wouldn't have complained even if I hadn't bought a 4th gen because I always had that option.
Ya, it gets expensive--and when the 5th gen comes out I'll have to decide if the improvements are enough to warrant a purchase. Probably I'm going to sell my 2g and 3GS here soon as there's really not a point keeping them any longer (my fourth gen isn't a phone, but my company recently switched to Verizon so I had to get a Blackberry Storm2 anyway. Needless to say, my 3GS was a much better phone). Maybe I'll save that money toward a 5th gen when they come out.
If games didn't clearly say what devises they require, then I'd fully support people complaining. But if a game says it's not compatible with your device, you buy it anyway, then I think leaving a one star review is pretty crappy.
