Texting is a fine form of communication when you really know someone well and know how they talk and think. If it's a new friendship or relationship it's much dicier. It's harder to tell if they are being sarcastic or serious. You also don't know how quickly they respond and start to get paranoid. I've been there too.
I get what he's saying, I really do. I have bought a lot of games on sale, including retail console games and digital games on Steam or with PS Plus discounts, and I am probably never going to have time to even play most of them.
