The only problem I have with this is that the parts that are supposed to follow actual history are off. Atari 2600 games were still selling for $20-$40 when NES and Master System games were $40-$50, and you couldn’t get 2600 games for a dollar until the late nineties. The so-called crash didn’t happen anywhere I’d been in the eighties, and I personally didn’t know about Atari sinking their own ship until about 1997.
You seem like someone who had never experiensed money problems, Grimm. Good for you, I guess. Just so you know, instanses where an experiensed person who got a great education can’t find a job (because there are simply NONE vacant workplaces available) are very common. Try to go on with no food for a week, then we’ll see if you still spout nonsence about “pride” and whatnot.
