Get off your high horse here... if you don't like it, move along then. Were not going back to the "good ol' days" anytime soon. Votes only count when you DO or don't use your wallet. You probably also don't games that are only multiplayer...
If your a true CAG, then this shouldn't bother you anyways because you'll end up buying the GOTY edition with all the content anyways for cheap.
Not a high horse. There were a comment or two in here wondering why people would even pre-buy a season's pass. I too don't understand the logic. We're "cheapassgamers" and per-purchasing content like that not only isn't a deal since you're paying full price (and before even knowing what the content is!) but it also perpetuates the massive price increases in games we've been seeing in just the last couple years. Small incremental price increases every couple of years are normal. Games costing two to three times as much as they did only a couple years ago is insane and pre-purchasing everything is a large (not only) cause of it.
Not certain what you meant to say about multiplayer and I'm uncertain how or why that has anything to do with topic, but I'll cover it. I play everything. From multiplayer only games like Battlefront, to MMO's like WoW, to single player only games, and any mix in between (like COD). Indie games, AAA titles, everything.
I do vote with my wallet actually. I usually pick up titles after their price drops, used, trades, craiglist, whatever and whereever a deal is available. Sure I'll buy a brand new game but usually when it's from a company that doesn't play this 150-200+dollar game and they just release a decent game at price. DLC is free or very cheap bang for buck and I never pre-purchase. They have to earn the dollars, but just get it because of the name on the case so they can release anything.
