Paid Microtransactions: Why They Can Be A Huge Downside For New School Gaming!

I remembered the time I got my hands on a Playstation 3 some time ago. While I didn't get it immediately when things are still new but I remembered a lot of stuff I got fascinated about. Online patching of video game glitches was definitely more convenient than having to endure the glitches through and through during the old school gaming days. Graphics have huge improvement, a lot of gameplay innovation from competent companies may make you never want to pick some of their old school games again (ex. You may have stopped playing the first game they released way back in the 90s)... you name it! While I was sad that there are no more cheat devices but it was nice to engage in competitive gaming. There was a huge feel of satisfaction like paying off Ludger's huge loan in Tales of Xillia 2. I never did anything like that way back when I was playing old school RPGs when cheat codes were still trendy.
