Hey guys! My latest article for Grab It is live. It looks at the subtle and well-concealed ramifications to cheap games, and how the act of playing is altered by the nature of the purchase. Some of these factors are quite hard to spot, and even awareness of them doesn't entirely eliminate their effects. I suggest you give it a read if you've ever found yourself questioning why you purchased that game that's been sitting unopened on your desk for longer than you can remember.

So, why do you game?
