I came across a massive cardboard bin of $2 DVD's at Walmart. They looked awful, so I didn't buy any. Instead I bought a good DVD (The Blue Planet) I do the same thing with games. (currently enjoying Okami, Mario Kart, and PES 2008) Bad media doesn't really affect me, but maybe it hurts you, because I see a lot of complaining about shovelware. Do you buy everything you see? Do you play crap games while you listen to crap music, and then go to sleep watching a crap movie? I can see why that would make you angry. If not, please tell me how shovelware personally affects you.
