Best impulse buys you've ever made?

In some respect impulse buys changed they way I think of games. One of the best impulse buys I made was Deus Ex Invisible War a long time ago for the Xbox. I was at gamestop and it looked cool and was cheap so I got it. After playing through it probably 5 times I played the original which to this day is my favorite video game. Same with Thief Deadly Shadows. When I first played it I'd never played anything like it. This was what really got me into stealth games and got me to play the originals. This kind of set the bar for me for what I like to see in a stealth game. Buying these two games turned out to be a fantastic decision. Shortly after I bought Serious Sam for the Xbox which introduced me to the series. And more recently Amnesia.

What's an impulse buy?

Dark souls was pretty cheap.And It ended up being top ten of all time for me.

Picked it up because my friend and I thought it looked stupid (or "gay", as he put it). Thought it would be worth a laugh; turns out to be one of my favourtie games of all time.

I could tell you some of the worst impulse buys I've ever made.


Can't think of any especially good ones. Unless we want to go back about... 9 years to when I picked up mystical ninja starring goemon on n64.

Almost forgot about EDF. I don't know if I'd consider that an impulse buy because I was looking for it for a long time. That game is great fun.

There you go. I just bought EDF 2017 on impulse thanks to this topic.

Enslaved Odyssey to the west- It was a buy 2 get one free weekend or whatever at gamestop. I asked the guy to recommend me a game. He said this and it was really fun.

Never really had any other impulse buys
