I would say:

I would never ever ever buy an item in a physical shop, let alone game, because online is always cheaper and I don't have to deal with people. Unless it's clothes I want to try on.

Buying things online might avoid dealing with people, but necessitates dealing with computers.

I'd prefer to avoid both tbh

So you are posting on an online forum to tell us that you avoid online shopping for computer games because you like to avoid using computers?

Ok…. :slol:

Whether they are called computer games or video games or just games, the fact remains he will have to deal with a computer if he wants to play them.

If you play them on a computer, yes.

Yes exactly

(To expand/explain my actual thoughts, I like to avoid buying things online because of privacy and security concerns. Paying in cash at self-service checkouts in shops is pretty much the perfect solution)

Walked past the local Game today at lunchtime, town was heaving but it didn't look like there was a single person in the store. Storefront was almost completely taken up by a display of second hand phones and devices.

Just know that you'll be permabanned if I'm ever supplied with evidence of you buying a thing from a shop.

I don't understand Game. They went under because of their shitty business practices. Someone bought them and then continued on the same path. Why didn't they modernise?

Modernisation is hard, doubling down on being shitty is easy.

“Right”, I think, “time to buy FIFA.”

It’s £49.99 everywhere, and I want a copy pronto so I can play it tomorrow evening as the wife is out, might as well head into town and grab a copy from Game.

In-store price £52.99.

*walks out*

Luckily you didn't quote me, so there's no notification so I'll never read your hatred.
