I'm fairly sure anyone here must have played computer games at least once in your life and I'm vaguely interested in knowing what your opinions are on the In-Game markets that are out there. Now of course ignoring the really cheap and simply made ones what do you think about the huge markets that almost act like the real thing? The more volume they have the lower the prices go and the less they have the higher the prices go. Games like EVE Online ( As much as I utterly despise the game itself you got to admire the complexity of the system ) and X3 Terran Conflict are some of the ones that I can think of. One hilarious article even came out one time about a glitch that was discovered in EVE Online where a clan was creating tons of resources artificially secretly outside of the game code, it turned out that they had been doing it for so long that it caused the inflation of the in game currency making it lose value so things got far more expensive. Kinda ironic since that's very similar to what the Federal Reserve was doing. Do you guys think any of these in-game markets are at all accurate to real life? I can understand them not being entirely due to them being in more controlled environments or whatnot. But I was just wondering what you thought. Part of the reason I got into the idea of trading in the first place I admit was because I made a huge amount of money in X3 Terran Conflict which was pretty crazy and it just made me wonder what would happen if that money had been real.
