i dont buy games on release anymore, no matter how badly i want it, i’ll wait for a special, look at wolfenstein the new collossus, a month after release it was discounted 40% for black friday, on console i wait for deals with gold or seasonal specials and on pc, cdkeys, humble bundle is my goto
Not after Arkham Knight…no. I don’t pre-order anymore. any “exlusive content” they bring out for those who preorder are not worth the premium you pay for not waiting for it to be 33% off a few months later when its actually launched (games released hastily and bug-filled are not launched in my opinion).
I only pre-order games that I know for a fact that I will get. Games like the Forza series of games I know I’ll get, so I don’t mind pre-ordering them. I’ve also pre-ordered Far Cry 5. And when Red Dead Redemption’s pre-orders start, I’ll pre-order that as well.
Most of the other games I buy are all after their release date, not because I wanted to wait for reviews, just that I have way too much to play right now and just simply don’t want to add any more games to my library.
Last game I pre-ordered was the latest SimCity. So no, I do not pre-order games anymore. Maybe one day when I have more time, I’ll consider pre-ordering games that I look forward to. But until then, I’m content with bundles and steam sales.
Yes I do. So far I am sitting on Dark Souls Remastered and Far Cry 5.
I pretty much pre-order any game I want. Mostly because I game share on the ps4 so it’s a little cheaper at launch to split a games price in half. And because I want to play it on release so I want to preload it.
I will do a few more this year. God of War, Red Dead and Super Smash Bro’s. That’s all I can think of at the moment.
After Mass Effect nope, not because I was burnt by the game - I had my expectations in check. I just cannot do it anymore - aka full price for games is currently a luxury I cannot afford. So specials is my only way of getting new games this year - and I will stick with my rule - 75% off or more only.
Not for a looong time. I got burned by the launch issues with Red Orchestra 2 and haven’t risked pre-ordering since then. But more so, I can wait. I do not HAVE TO HAVE the game at the second it launches. I am quite happy to wait a few months and grab the game on discount. I admit though Kingdom Come: Deliverance tempted me but I also had an inkling that it would be a shaky launch what with it being an ambitious project for a smallish studio. I still want to get the game, but in time.
Yes. I mostly stick to the crpg genre so there aren’t that many per year to start off so if the odd isn’t awesome its not a train smash. Besides I like being right in the centre of the hype of the new game.
