You know what really grinds my gears is people who buy a fighting game day one, just to beat the story/arcade mode on easy and never play it again. I've asked some why they don't play anymore and they reply "I beat the arcade mode, so there is nothing left to do" Typically I've seen this mainly with Mortal Kombat/Injustice but happens with Street Fighter as well sometimes. What a waste of money when there is more fun to be had with investment and online. Instead of mashing and doing random stuff.

Some people are content to play casually. Maybe they like the characters/story, etc.
Could also be that they bought it to try, and it turns out they just don't like it all that much.

In any case, I personally don't see it as a waste of money.
The company is getting the sales, allowing them to continue making games for the rest of us to enjoy.
But I see where you are coming from.

Personally, I am more often hooked by the story than by the mechanics of a game.
The point is, finishing Arcade Mode is all there is for non-competitive players like myself. Some just don't think about actually liking to play the game, I'd say that if they immediately dump it afterwards...
