Up until this week I didn't even give it a second though. I laughed at the notion of doing so. No way was I going to do it. As this week started, the thought came back. I just brushed it back to the nether regions of my mind. As the days came and went, it slowly gained steam but I denied its existence. But, I couldn't keep holding it back. And today, I finally caved in.
I pre-ordered the Modern Warfare 2 Prestige Edition for Xbox 360.
I promised myself I wouldn't do it again, not after shelling out for the Halo 3 Legendary Edition two years ago. Don't get me wrong, the Master Chief helmet is awesome, but $150 for one game? I could get 2 1/2 games for that(you can get 1/2 of a game if you unlock the true deep powers of String Theory as I have). I promised myself to put back half of my checks to savings, so I am already penny pinching when it comes to buying video games and there are so many that I want to get(like, for instance, Brutal Legend and Uncharted 2: Among Thieves releasing this Tuesday).
Why would I do this? Why would I sacrifice the possibility of getting another game just to satisfy the consumer whore in me that wants the biggest and grandest version of an item? Why would I torture myself like that?
The answers to these questions may never come to pass. One thing I do know, though, is that I am going to be as giddy as a school girl when I put on those night vision goggles and then later see them on the Soap MacTavish bust next to my Master Chief helmet.
