    To me I enjoy gaming I dont play to be uber I play to have fun. If a game is not fun to me guess what I move on and play something else till I find one that is. When I find that great game and not sure if in my life time there will be one I hope it has everything I want in an mmo.

    I didn't think people invested in gold and actually took physical possession of the gold...

     Well yeah, when the government collapses, or the apocalypse comes, are you going to call your broker and then ask for the withdraw to use it as a barter item in the new savage world, doubt anyone answers the phone.

     

    Guns and ammo probably make more sense, but some people think since gold had high value in less advanced times, it will hold true if everything collapses, and it will help them get through for the rebuild or whatever comes next.

     

    I can see the merit in being prepared, but percentage wise, its to low for me to bother with personally.
