Mine was completely on impulse in a Best Buy. I really should do more research before buying things.
Beats were kind of an impulse thing too, as my old headphones were breaking. But since I started making musics n DJing a lot more, I may as well get some good, god-tier headphones. And M50's are the way to go.
Movies can do the exact same thing. Animation can do more than actors, but actors can attach more feeling in actions than an animation. Animations can make more effects, but you don't need effects to tell a story. Movies can be expressed exactly as the developer wants it to be seen.
