@bowlisimo I really like the description you offer of paying a large amount of money for the promise of something amazing. I read your post, and the feeling instantly resonated with me, as I felt an identical way after pledging money for Wasteland 2. It really is one of those reptile brain decisions. I make it a point not to tell the more rationally minded friends of mine that I gave $125 to a sequel to a game I loved as a kid and that came out in 1988… (And, while Wasteland was the first, let’s not even start with the money I pledged to Shadowrun Returns, Dead State, or Project Eternity. We’ll just keep those our little secret.)
