It's a good thing to learn. My entrance fee is when they drop to 30$ and below. Patches, dlc, collection, good sales etc


I'm usually about $40 CAD.

I used to do this. I have games from the 360 era still sealed. Games I got on release date. I used to pre-order games from amazon and forget about them. Then by the time I got the game I was playing something else or busy and never got to play it. This happened more often that I care to admit. This generation I decided to go all digital and no preorders unless I really really want the game. It saves me a lot of money and no need to buy a game on an impulse. All the games are available to buy from my living room anytime I really want to play them, or if they are on sale for a good price.

Sorry it took this long for you to realize day 1 purchases are a waste. I can deal without the bug/ glitches games come plagued with. I always wait at least a month or 2.

I've always been that way. The I my game I've ever gotten on release, pre order was Lego Harry Potter. Don't know why, just really wanted it.

Everything else I get on sale, second hand. This way they've always had patches and fixes by the time I get them, and there are always walkthroughs and guides made by then too.
There are so ma y games out there I haven't scratches the surface, so new releases are never top priority

The one down side for this is, the mp side may be a lot quite or just all immense players left, but 9 times out of 10 it's fine.

Totally agree, dude. There's no real reason to buying games on release, other than ones that are MP focused/only. I skipped Injustice 2 on launch, and it's $14 at GameStop tomorrow.

This is what I've started doing for the most part. No reason to buy a game at full price on launch unless it's an online game, special/collector's edition I want, or it's a Nintendo game.

I pay as much as I think a game is worth. To me, most games aren't worth 60+ bucks anymore, but a game with a 50% off sale that's been out with good reviews and had all its patches, sign me up!

I've been doing this for years

+1.

You also get to skip over all the broken release code and the update treadmill and play an actually finalized version once you get to it.
