Hey, you were not obliged to buy them
No but we had nothing else to go by back then except what was on the box.
Thats why they got away with it...As i said once the mags came out the quality of games got better and you could find out more about a game before buying it...
You say many things in life are like that.....Not so much now....you can google anything..watch TV....Media reviews....its a lot harder to sell crap games these days or anything for that matter...Ok a second hand car maybe
Il bet the forum is full of people who bought games back then based on what was on the box
