Shameful gaming secrets

#1Crisis_UKPosted 4/2/2013 10:26:46 AM
Thought I'd make this topic to see if other people have secrets in regards to gaming as a whole that they are not exactly proud of.

Mine is that in all my years of gaming (20+) I've never actually bought a console or handheld at launch and yet I would still consider myself an avid gamer.

The closest I ever came was getting a GBA from my mom for Christmas a whole 6 months after it was release here in the U.K

Nothing wrong with no buying consoles at launch. They are usually over priced. The game quality is not there either. Usually they are slightly better versions of whats out already.

I'm in the same boat, never bought a launch console in 22 years gaming. To be honest that trend is set to continue, I think it's sensible to wait a year to see how the system plays out.

It's really not shameful to wait for a console to become cheaper or just wait until the bugs are ironed out. I don't usually buy a console for months or even years (I just got my first 360 like six months ago) because I often have literally hundreds of games for each console I want so unless there's an exclusive that I must have oh my god life will be over if I don't have this game I don't usually get a console just to have it. That's especially relevant in this day and age where consoles tend to share most games anyway and only have a few exclusives. Handhelds are a bit different. I don't think the handheld systems share most of the games they have except for some of the bigger ones like Call of Duty.
