The Soapbox: Vote With Your Wallet, Not With Tweets

How often have you been in a game where a player with hundreds of hours in does nothing but complain about how awful said game is?  How irritating is it when you see a group of people on social media trashing a company for 'ruining a game' only to buy said game when it releases, or worse, preorder?  What is it about gamers that makes us work against our own interests?  Is it because we're insatiable or habitual collectors?  Do we hope it will be better than we expect?  Is it because we value money differently when it comes to games?  Whatever it is, it's time to put up or shut up.  Use the one weapon we have to make our voices heard because we're being taken advantage of, and we're letting it happen.
