Well if it has to actually be explained to you, you shouldn't be responding to my post to begin with nor should you be on a Collector's Edition thread, run along now.
I used to have one of the largest CE and steelbook collections in existence--not even hyperbolic. I was all about them for every game I owned that had one. However, with that said, I always hated CEs where the 'CE' part was literally just a separate box. That's not a CE; that's a game that comes with a separate bonus of over priced junk. I was also hyper critical of the direction that CEs were moving in (larger, more worthless crap thrown in, more expense, etc).
It's almost like one can be a collector and have a hobby, and still use critical thinking when it comes to those subjects. Don't make things so black and white. This is a forum to discuss, why make it impossible to do so?
