I would have never bought Sonic All Stars (Wii U) without the demo. Hadn't given it any thought before, loved the demo so much, I bought the game. --- Black 2 FC: 3654 8353 8201 "Barkley: Shut up and jam! Gaiden" Is the best RPG of all time.

The Resident Evil: Revelations demo definitely helped me make my decision to buy it.

for niche games like fire emblem, yeah
but mario games don't need demos

I think demos are wonderful!
I was skeptic about getting EO4 but as I'm still playing this demo I realize this is a must have. I hope more game demos in the future start at the games beginning and then allow for the save to be transferred to the full game. --- ...Life is tedious if it ain't flowing...

I'm all for demos but in all of my gaming years I don't think a demo has ever swayed me towards a purchase I wasn't already set on making. More often they deter a purchase.
This is why I think demos are a bad idea. Notice the extermely high ratings on games with demos, only people that loved it bought it. --- my sig was getting old.

I'm hating the Monster Hunter demo, but the Resident Evil one totally sold me. --- 3DS FC: 2191-7845-2935

To be honest, I think demos actually make me not buy a game, rather than me buying the game --- Dont french fry when youre supposed to pizza. If you french fry when you're supposed to pizza you're gonna have a bad time.

Demo sold me on Fire Emblem: Awakening, but killed my interest for Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate. Kind of a mixed bag. --- PSN: JDTAY87 Nintendo Network: JDTAY87

the Monster Hunter ultimate demo what is not for people who have never played the game more for people who are awaiting the game. A demo for Monster Hunter could never do any justice. it is not a game with instant gratification it is a very deep game that requires patience and practice. if I were you I wouldn't make a decision on Monster Hunter about a demo that only shows you 2 monsters and nothing of what comes with preparing to even fight monsters of that caliber. --- Pokemon White FC: 5415-0064-0126

Sometimes demos can suck though. I hated the Dead Space demo, but when I got the game for cheap years later, I loved it.
That's a problem with the developer then. The point of a demo is to sell a game. Or at least it was. Demos are pretty lazy these days because consumers are less wise with their money now.
