It’s the season… the season of discounts. Yes, it’s just about time for everything to go on discounts on various online storefronts, and while you could theoretically use that to buy presents for other people, you can also use it to buy presents for yourself. You can get your MMO fix cheaper than you otherwise would! Buy microtransaction currency in cheaper bundles! Get optional mounts cheaper! Spend money and then later ask yourself why you spent that money in the first place!
But maybe that’s not you; maybe you’re resistant to the marketing lures and the fear of missing out and you’re not really planning on indulging in the strictly consumerist side of things. Maybe you’d only be buying presents for others and there’s nothing that you specifically want, or maybe you’d just like to spend your money elsewhere for the time being. But therein lies the question. Are you going to indulge in some sales action for MMOs, or are you going to abstain this year?
