GeriatricGamer: We Are Being Exploited

on October 23, 2011 6:00 PM

Yes, it’s true that a good amount of the 60+ year-old gamer demographic doesn’t know… very much about games, but this is an outrage.

S&S Worldwide, a site based out of the US that sells games,¬†therapeutic¬†toys, craft kits, etc., is selling New Super Mario Bros. Wii for $90. They are exploiting us, the “old” gamers who aren’t very good at shopping for videogames.

For the same price, I could buy 96 paint-your-own-dreidels from their site.

This site is also quite anti-Semitic, as indicated by the fact that they sell a “Craft Stick Barrel Bank Craft Kit“, unadorned by any Judaic imagery, in their “Judaic Crafts” department.

It really is horrific.
