you talk like someone who will wake up one of these days as an aspiring stinkditch haver, you know that?For the first one, it can be really entertaining to watch another person play through a game you really like and want to learn some deeper mechanics to, just my particular taste. Granted I know she's not that kind of player.
The donating part though I will never get, why should I be paying someone to play video games? If that's how things worked I should be a frigon millionaire by now. Not to mention that gaming is an expensive hobby to begin with, why would I toss you my expendable money when it's something I can get just as much enjoyment out of on my own? Plus you know, I can buy more games with that money or use it for something more important than a hobby.
