Hell no, I can't STAND how some of these retailers are pushing Black Friday so far back that it's gotten to were their employees can't even get Thanksgiving (actually the ads call it just plain "Thursday" 😛 ) off with their families (rest assured the higher ups do!).  Forget Bill O'Reilly's War on Christmas from the mid 2000s...it's now the War on Thanksgiving (and yes, like with Christmas back then, Thanksgiving is now a taboo word in the retailer ads; it's now just plain ol' "Thursday").  There is no good reason whatsoever why rank and file employees (except for the kind of things that really honest to goodness MUST always be open, like hospitals, police, fire, military, etc) should not have at least Thanksgiving and Christmas off to be with family.  Even Scrooge of all people gave Cratchet Christmas off with pay!!!

Besides all of that though, you can get just as good if not better deals online all year long and not have to fight a bunch of crazy human animals over some cheap cut rate TVs (you get what you pay for).  Frankly Black Friday outlived whatever appeal it may have used to have a long time ago and it's also gotten to be dangerous for both customers and employees alike sometimes (google it for examples).  I've never been to one and frankly I would never go to one unless maybe you paid me for whatever I picked out (and only on the Friday itself; no way am I going to help force people to work on Thanksgiving).

So, eh, does play-asia have Black Friday sales? Cause I still need the Final Fantasy X/X-2 and I want the Japanese version so I don't have to DLC X-2.

Yeah, they're going on right now:

This is from a couple of years ago but it's not gotten any better; in fact when playing cards with my grandma like I do every Sunday I saw an add for Wallie World that, sure enough, opens on 6PM on generic Thursday. 😛  It's not very often I agree with liberal sorts of places but for this issue and for this website's take on it I'm more than happy to make an exception:


Look if you guys wanna do the Black Friday thing, go nuts...when it's actually Black Friday.  It just saddens me that way too many retail employees are needlessly forced to work on what I guess to these big box retailers is now just "generic Thursday".  Heck even Scrooge of all people gave Bob Cratchet Christmas off with pay.  Go figure!
