buy fewer games

It's a shame that I have to offer this advice, because I believe this year, like last year, will be a great year for games. But I care about you guys, so I'm going to say it.

Buy fewer games this year. Start saving more money.

Reports are coming out that the American Treasury has been printing currency these past months on a scale far beyond anything it has done in our nation's history. Printing was already unusually high over the past 10 years, but now it's skyrocketing at a dangerous pace. As a result, the American economy is very likely to suffer record-setting inflation. The dollar's value is about to plummet.

I'm sure there are many exaggerations floating around right now, but this is undeniably a very serious situation. For a certainty, the money you're already saving is not going to buy as much as it normally would. Most of us are already saving more money than usual because of the troubled economy. I'm saying this is an almost-certain indicator that things are going to get worse before they get better.

So take care of yourself. Be more frugal. Spend less money than you normally would. Unfortunately, that means letting some good games slip through the cracks this year. Hopefully, you'll be able to pick them up to enjoy later.


  1. Totally the opposite of what the governments around the World are telling their respective citizens...

    ...but that's what they want.

    Politicians will only ever look out for #1 first & that doesn't mean us. Until they can lead by example what hope do they have that we are going to 'do' what they can only 'preach' about.

  2. Politicians always seek the quick fixes, the quick jolts and seldom seem to deal with or consider in sufficient depth the long term problem or result.

    Good advice anyways, be frugal, save money, buy what you need to and prepare for a bumpy ride for a bit while we pay for other's mistakes.
