This is why all children should be taught to recognise and defend against advertising in schools. (It’ll never happen, because politicians want to use advertising too.)

I suppose this kind of fake geekdom, the sort with visible markers you can acquire just by spending money, was inevitable once geekdom had been declared trendy.

Just recently a 10 year old game was resold as a “remastered” edition. All the old downloadable content was also resold separately for more money. The buyer was urged to pre-order in order to get this 10 year old game first.
