I know it's because Moving Pictures is pretty short, but it's still weird they put the best book in the $1 tier.

I always think it's hilarious when people bash Humble bundles. Yeah, most of their bundles aren't amazing deals, but that would be impossible to pull off. Everything's relative and pretty much every Humble bundle blows away anything that Fanatical, IG, or Groupees puts out as well as any sales Steam or really any other retailer offer.

 

I only have 1 game from this bundle unless you count owning Goat Sim on my phone since it was free at one point. I would jump on the top tier of this bundle in a second if my friends decided to play DBD, but we played it when it had a free weekend and weren't that impressed. Otherwise, I'll probably skip the bundle since the only thing I really want is Death Road to Canada. The previous low for that game by itself is $9, so this is still a great deal even if I only wanted that, but I've cut back my game buying since I can only play so many games anyway.

I think it's the title most people are complaining about, not the bundle contents. It was an awful choice of title, but par for the course when it comes to the included games.

So how is Goat Simulator, anyway?

Goat Simulator is a sandbox ragdoll exploration game where you play as a goat. Two maps, 100 or so "missions" and easter eggs, very mediocre graphics and sound. They really did make it seem like Tony Hawk circa 2004. I found the only legitimate way to have fun with it was to play with friends where you're all of the same "haha what the hell is this" mindset. Gets boring after a while, and this is the vanilla version that's been given away free numerous times on various systems.

 

And of course it's subjective. It's literally all games bundled last year, making the bundle bad for people who bought those bundles last year, like me. Not all of the games are bad, though FNAF and Goat Sim definitely aren't "Best of 2017" worthy titles. We complain about repeats in other sites, no need to draw the line at Humble just because they're the biggest.

This thread:

"Haha, this is the best of 2017?"

 

Also this thread:

"You people are wrong about this bundle, it's really quite good!  I mean, I'm sure not buying it but..."

I just want 4 AAA games for $1, is that too much to ask Humble?!

Not too much at all.  There have been bundles that might match that description.

Have you ever considered that you may be buying too many bundles or too many upper tiers of bundles?

There's been a few times I've initially gotten in on the BTA, but I don't think I've ever stuck there. The top tier is always "here's the game that's actually worth the $10 by itself, and it costs just $2-$3 more than the BTA to get it".

 

I suppose ideally you'd get in on some $1 tiers but if there's anything worth it in the $1 tier I usually am interested in something in the BTA ... and so probably in the extra couple bucks for the thing in the top tier ... 

Again, I'm sure Syntax Error will point out that stores love me.

Nah.  I can do that.

 

Stores love you.

I'll sometimes use the reverse reasoning though to stay out of a bundle entirely: "hmm, the BTA seems worth it but if it were really worth the BTA price then certainly it would be worth the extra couple bucks for top tier, but I don't want to spend $10, therefore by the law of contrapositive it must not really be worth it for the BTA."

Flattered, but I have people who do that for me now.

Seems like every other bundle is some degenerate animu-fest bundle.

Hasn't HunieCam been in some dollar tier or something before?  I'm pretty sure it's been in a bundle priced lower than 'Pop.

Are you implying I might make $1 instead of .75 from cards??

Yeah, I think it was in a $1 tier in the Hunie Sakura bundle.

Damn; most of the ones I care about I got in other bundles, like the Hunie games.

Too many repeats in BTA tier. $1 it is.

Hmmm well not too bad except the majority of the BTA was in other bundles. May still get this once the reveal the mystery items in a week. Maybe it a coupon for a box of tissues at your local store.

I actually wouldn't mind this; I've been under the weather a lot lately.
