The question of value: Is Rory McIlroy PGA Tour “worth it?”

By on @richgrisham

There have been – and will continue to be – lengthy debates among fans and pundits about what makes a particular game valuable to them. Is it the amount of content? Is it the unique experience? Is it the opportunity to try something new and different? Rich and Bryan get together to discuss the definition of the word “value” in the context of the upcoming Rory McIlroy PGA Tour Golf, which is shipping with a smaller number of courses and fewer amount of licensed real-world golfers than those of the last generation. Should potential buyers be worried? Should expectations be derived from the past, or weighed against the fact that building new courses and golfers for new, powerful consoles takes considerably more effort than it used to?
