If I'm excited about it and want to play it right after launch, you boat'chya


This, but even still with most sites there's typically a discount for pre-orders with the big name games. But yeah if I want the game I'll pay full price.

Sometimes... only the ones I'm very interested in. I'll be buying Lords of Shadow 2 at full price, as well as Dark Souls 2, just to name a few.

I usually measure my desire to play the game vs what the price is. If I have no immediate desire to play it (but I might one day) then I'll just wait for a good sale. If I'm reasonably sure I want to play it now, I'll pay a higher price, and if I've been waiting for that game for a long time and I'm sure I'm gonna play it for at least 100 hours anyway, then I'll pay full price.

It really depends on what full price is. $60? I rarely pay that for a game these days. $30-40? If I'm hyped to play the game and I know I'll be playing it for a long time, no problem. The more expensive, the more I think about it. Part of the reason why I've got so many games now is that a lot of them were offered cheap enough that I could say "$5? Yeah I could probably get at least $5's worth of fun out of this".

If I want it day 1 yes. If not I wait for a Steam sale or head over to GoG.

Really depends on the game, who made it, early reviews...

Not for a while. I've gotten Bioshock, Tomb Raider, and Metro on release at ~$20 off retail. Gotta love the Steam Hookups group.
