    Did you sell your soul for games?
    Funny as Hell, but also a very good point. how many of us do read he small print when we buy online...?

    Mods, I'm posting this in GD rather than Games because it's actually got more to do with buying online in general than with games in particular; it's just that it was a game retailer that did it. Feel free to move if you think it'd be better suited to the games forum.

    :lolol  I'd love to see the look on a gamers face if as a gag they went and tried to claim the guy's soul and showed him the fine print from his game purchase.


    I don't read the fine p[rint but i think i might start....

    Awesome.

    I gotta get in on this kind action. I've always wanted an immortal soul to kick around. It would be a great conversation starter.

    I used to actually read the EULAs, but they were all standard boilerplate written by lawyers and didn't fundamentally differ from one site to the next. This is still hilarious, even more so by the loss of a £5 credit for not reading it.

    Having a soul is overrated.

    Thanks to banks & credit card companies, I've learned to read the small print before reading anything else :lol 

    Freecreditreport.com is a good exaample. If you don't read the tiny words on the bottom, you'll be billed about $15 a month. Free my ass.
