When was the last time you actually bought a game?

No, I'm not talking about pirating the game and then buying it later once its two dollars on steam, I mean actually buying the game for full price when its new.

My face whenever I see a topic like this... :P

And you're asking two very different things - when is the last time you actually bought a game (implying most of us are pirates), and when is the last time you actually bought a game for full price.

I don't even remember the last time I paid full price for a game on PC *or* console - I always buy on sales, regardless of platform. Unless you count kickstarting Planetary Annihilation I suppose.

But on the flip side, I have an even harder time remembering the last thing I pirated. It was more than a decade ago.

The X-Com game I preordered.
Mount & Blade Warband

I can't think of any others. Demos sell games for me at full price, if the demo is omitted, I won't pay full price for the game.
The original mount & blade I was late to the party so I bought it cheaper (I bought it immediately after playing the demo), but I paid full for warband. For x-com, the demo sold me on the game immediately and I pre-ordered it.

I don't understand why we stopped with demos. You wouldn't buy a car without test driving it. You might download the car but that's a different issue.

Bought Risen 3...great game though a tad bit easy unfortunately on the combat side of things.

I've never pirated a game, because I don't need to.

Grand Theft Auto V

Before that... Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition. If you don't count that (It's a 9.99 remake) then Portal 2.

I can at least tell you that, the last games I don't regret buying at full price are Valve's games, when they were still working on Half-Life. I bought the Orange Box without any regrets.

Since then... well... I can't say I haven't bought anything full price... but I've had many regrets.

I love that people automatically assume that PC gamers are pirates. I haven't pirated a game since minecraft, then later bought it. I bought The Island and Rust in the past 2 weeks.
