Take, for example, the forthcoming, £200, Game-exclusive Halo 5: Guardians Collector's Edition, which comes with a poxy statue. For £200, it better be an animatronic statue, and dispense crab paste out of its face, and lull us to sleep at night with a haunting lament. But let's face it, it's just going to be a resin model of M.Chief posing like the ghastly tart that he is.
Anyway. Here are 10 more boxes o' tat that you could've utterly wasted your money on, instead of giving it to people who really would've benefitted - like crazy people, or weaklings.
One of the most long-awaited duds to ever hit the games industry, Duke Nukem Forever simply couldn't be improved, no matter how much extra rubbish you flung at it. Frankly, a bust of the title character is only ever going to remind you how godawful the game was - a bit like commissioning a portrait of someone who ran you over in their van, and mounting it on the wall above your bed.
In all honesty, we've used the goggles about thrice - each time to look down the bottom of the garden to see if there were any foxes (there weren't any foxes).
Obviously nobody was ever going to pay for it - even if it did include plastic surgery, a trip to space, and a couple of cars. And if somebody did pay for it, we'd suggest that the next time they feel like blowing a million bucks they spend it on electro-shock therapy, or a golden noose.
The downside? Let's face it - you're only going to play with it a couple of times before regretting your purchase, and doing a quick mental tally of all the other things you could've spent your money on.
Rent, heating, food...
However, if you are the sort of person who thinks they need a Mad Max shed in their garden, it's a wonder how you ever made that sort of money in the first place. Inheritance, we're guessing. Your parents must be so proud.
