Do you guys wait for a long time until it reach at least 15 bucks, or you guys but them for 40 or more as long as they're a good game. Also do you guys buy mediocre or bad games just to increase your collection? Share your thoughts pls :)

I very rarely buy games at $60, the majority of my purchases are $20-30

And no I generally only buy games that I like, or that are highly regarded. A lot of my collection also comes from owning a whole series also. If I like one game in a series, I tend to feel a compulsion to own the entire series.

I can wait two weeks and get a game half price, so that's what I normally do. And if I ever want one day one then I get my friend to grab it and use her 10% discount and additional mates rates.

I usually pick games up when they're 20-40 bucks. Usually 40, if I pick up a game for less than that it's a game I was interested in and completely forgot about while waiting for the price to drop, an older game from before I had whichever system, or a game I think I'll enjoy but have heard mixed our bad things about.

I don't buy mediocre or bad games to inflate my collection, if I buy a game it's because I honestly think it will entertain me, no matter what anyone else may think of the game, that applies more to mediocre than bad, if I haven't heard anyone say anything good about a game I'll avoid it
