What you're really buying is actually pixels on your screen, in a certain order and color. It's that simple. Many people around the globe could benefit from those money and if you don't fancy giving them to charity or something like that, spend it on something nice for yourself. But yes, spending them on items in a video game is plain retarded.
Just like buying games, movies, cable TV... books (the pixels just come on a piece of paper). Arrangements of image, sound and text are all worthless.
Paying for experiences is not stupid. You can't boil an experience down to whether it's on a screen or not, the joy in movies is the emotions, the story, the characters... the fact it's on a screen is irrelevant. If someone finds the experience of getting a better item and killing things easier than before, it's there call how to spend their money to maximise their own enjoyment.
On topic, good video,
Especially the last line, :-D
