You know what pisses me off? FREE DEMO!

Something that pisses me off is the term "free demo". I'm speaking of video game demos here. Almost everywhere you can find game demos you'll usually see the "free demo" term used.

Now, don't get me wrong. I love game demos. I enjoy them. But think about what a demo actually is. A game demo is an advertisement for the game. That's their point, to get you to buy the game. It's basically an interactive commercial.

You don't see comedy central or TBS going on about their "FREE COMMERCIALS" so advertising the fact that your demos are FREE just seems irritating. Like I would actually pay for a commercial.

A "free" demo is expected. You don't get to be thought of as a super hero for offering us a free interactive commercial. You're not doing charity work or some great service to humanity. It's a commercial for a game. So cut it the hell out already.
