These people complain because they put their personal interest over everybody else`s interest. These people complain because they see them selves as the center of the world, they can`t see beyond their own navels. They complain because they are spoiled babes. I believe that they think to them selves: -I don`t like these games, so obviously nobody else likes it.

People, get over it! Grow up! You don`t need to have all the games, store just the ones that you play.
