When video game developers sell a game before it is done to milk more money out of their customers. It's usually broken and in the alpha or beta stages.
Timmy: "Did you see that new game on early access?"
Joe: " The one that costs $60 and doesn't work?"
Timmy: "Yeah we should buy it and support our developers."
Joe: "no."

A term that is frequently used by lazy and greedy game developers that has two major benefits. They can respond to any complaints regarding issues with the game itself with "it's in early access, of course you'll approach bugs" or release the game in early access to make some quick money and create a hype for new content, which in some cases won't arrive. With other words, the term "Early Access" can easily be exploited to bait people to play it and at the same time drastically reduce the work trying to fix bugs and problems by blaming it on the fact that the game isn't completed, which it most likely is.
"Hey, did you see that new early access game that just got released?"
"Oh, are you talking about that game that is completely broken and as far from enjoyable as possible but still costs $50?
"Yeah, exactly. We should pick it up to support the developers so they can finish the game"
"How about no? I don't feel like getting ripped off today"
