There's your perfect analogy.

I mean, the amount you kick in here matters. Buying an alpha game or donating to a Kickstarter for $15 for something cool is one thing. Paying hundred for pictures of ships is just imbecilic, I'm sorry. It's exactly as smart as falling for a Nigerian 409 scam. If someone wants to play a space game, they can send me a hundred bucks and I'll dig up my copy of "Freelancer" and mail the CD to them.
