Just a small correction - this isn't a typical demo, it's Early Access. There's a world of difference, with most game demo's dropping really close to release date, and requiring so much extra work…

I have put a little time into it. I am not, personally, a fan of playing unfinished games. Too many betas of MMO's beat any enjoyment out of me. Dead State and Wasteland 2 are games I am wanting…

1988 had Wasteland, Bard's Tale 3, Batteltech, Ultima V and Pool of Radiance, to name the cream of the crop. At least as good (I'd say better) than 1998, with Baldur's Gate, Diablo and Fallout 2.

2013 was bad. I didn't play most of those, and some that I did I'm hard pressed to consider an RPG (like BioShock.)

So for 2013 I did:

People against Steam just come across to me as people who 'need' vinyl or, worse yet, advocate the gold standard.

Ideology that trumps reality.

It is the same with almost any 'advice' for creative endeavors. Take it with a huge quantity of salt.

Certainly does look to be a ridiculously promising year. And, luckily for my budget, all those KS ones I want are ones I backed so I've got a ton of games coming to me I already paid for!

Which audience? What expectations? What poll, what consensus of gamers, do you have (other than your own perceptions) on what people THINK when they hear DLC or expansion?

Many of these words…
