    FFXIV Character

    Pumpkin Contrary (Sargatanas)

    Default You have $60

    Look, someone gave you a coupon for $60 on video games! But you can't spend it willy nilly, you have two options.

    1: Buy one excellent game that will last you about 40 hours
    2. Buy 3 okay games that will each last you about 25 hours

    Wat do?

    Oh wait. I was gonna say 2 cause i'd have more hours of playing but if it's excellent.... I probably would replay it a lot. So 1. I'll go with 1.

    Wait until the $60 game is on sale for $15 and buy last generation's $60 games for much less now.

    Why not wait until the copyright expires and get them for free?

    Cause most people don't live to be over a 120 years old, which is when most copyright media goes into fair use.


    For the question, I would go for the one great experience over lesser but numerous experiences. An excellent game will keep you hooked, a good game tends to fall into the "one and done" category.

    My time is limited.

    Option A = 40 hours
    Option B = 3 x 25 = 75 hours

    A, no contest.

    I'm more likely to want to replay the excellent game multiple times, so I'll go for that one.

    Quality over quantity​. Wins every time.
