Where would "I might buy from them if they put out something I was interested in," or "Only bargainbinned games" go?

I'm the same as Rachel, if they put out an interesting game I want I'll buy it.

Yep. Need an option for: "I'd never buy either of those wankers a beer but if they somehow made a good game I'm not too proud to pay money for it either."

You people are just optimists.

Can you honestly imagine them putting out a game that was interesting, playable, bug-free and reasonably priced?

I can't.

Judge every game by its merit, although I'm quite sceptical after Civ 2.01.

If they'd done a European one I would have bought it but I didn't so I guess I agree with you.

If a game interests me, I'll buy it, no matter who's behind it.

Gettysburgh was OK, I bought that for 10 EUR. The SimGolf softwarey is OK for 10-15 EUR, I think.

I have never bought a game from either Sid Meier or Firaxis.

If the future direction of their games will include things like the aborted Dinosaur game, or SimGolf, I can't see myself buying anything that lame anyway, despite how well-programmed it may or may not be.

Given the quality of their product so far, and their customer service re: getting patches out and admitting their own mistakes, I am wholly unimpressed.

I voted "no views", but "I just don't give a damn" would probably be closer to my actual feelings.
