When do you buy your games?

Broken poll. I gotta believe most people buy them at various times. Some I want day 1, some I don't wind up getting until years after they're released, and everything in between.

True. But there's certainly a pattern. I'd say 90% of the games I get are somewhat older and have a low price tag.

In fact, there's only 3 games I can think of that I bought on release day.

Halo 4
The Witcher 2
Ghost Recon: FS

And the Witcher 2 was released at $40 (God bless you CDPR), so it was an easy decision for me.

Hmm, I'm the only one who voted rent. Seeing as how 99% of games can be completed in under a week and I don't do multiplayer or second play throughs, it kinda makes financial sense.

If or rather when games go digital only, I'm going to be SOL lol.

Depends on the game and who makes it or publishes it. Normally I just go buy it when I feel like doing so. Games that are by my favorite developer are nearly always preordered or bought around the release date as long as I know about it (unless it's another version of a game of theirs I already have).
