    Raise your hand if you paid $60 for Crysis 2 a month ago!

    ~Raises hand~

    I'm not bitter, but I was expecting more. Can't wait for the DX11 patch! XD

    That would be me, jetkami. :(

    I think it's pretty telling that Crysis 2 is already at half-price so soon after release. Good games hold their value for a long time, bad or marginal games don't. As contrast, Fallout 3 ran you $50 from the first day of release until it had been out for 9 months or more.

    Spent $30 on it because I needed to rip some models and textures for CSS porting. Once again I'll remind everyone that I commented on the demo launch page here saying it was a bad game and everyone who replied disagreed with me. Now it's all "OH IT'S SO BAD".

    I found Crysis 2 to be weak on the graphics end and too short. I have burned through it three times already. I got Just Cause 2 a while back for $20 and Bulletstorm for $30 last night from Steam. Just Cause 2 never ends, just go's on forever on it's island of Panau. I just started Bulletstorm last night and all I can say is wow. Both of these are much more enjoyable than Crysis 2.. for me anyway.

    If good games hold their value then why are CoD games still full price up to a year after release?
