Real currency > point systems
I hate the fact that I perpetually have around 300 MS points on my Live account, unable to bring myself to spend them on Indie titles; just saving them for my next purchase, which will still leave me with change.
I hope and pray for the day that I will be able to bring my balance back to zero. But inevitably, some sultry temptress of a game will start the cycle once more...
