The power of impulse buys can't be underestimated. I buy games all the time that are 5 bucks out so, that I would never touch at 20 or more. I think the net sum for the average game buyer is more money going out off the pocket, so it's a net plus for the industry. However I can see that it could kill a good developer that just doesn't get a lot of press or word of mouth, but then that's what steam sales, humble bundles and such are for. Add in the ability for people to pay higher amounts via kick starter if they really believe in a game and I think it's overall a good model. Much better than what we were stuck with for most of the 2000s
