Oh no, I can understand some people having a problem with it being full price, it's just a phrase I tend to throw out a lot when speaking from my perspective as someone who IS willing to pay full price, lol. If the original game had come out less than year or so before this, then I'd see the problem more clearly, but considering it's been three years, along with the amount of new content and features in the game, it might as well be treated the same as a new release. Maybe that's backwards thinking, but it's something I'm completely okay with provided I get my money's worth out of it.
It is backwards thinking, definitely. It's the same reason why it's unacceptable that games such as FIFA continue to release yearly in this day and age when they could just throw yearly updates/DLC packs or whatever.
But then again, Ka-pi probably pays full price for FIFA every year, so he's not in any position to complain.
