If pre-order sales count as not full price, then very rarely.
If they don't count, then sometimes.
If I become number one, will you do it with me?

Yeah, if a game sounds awesome then I'll buy it now. Why wait 6-12 months to play a game you really want because it would be 30% off by then?

Yes, if I really want to play the game or there's a decent pre-order incentive. For example, I'm excited for Rome II, and you get free DLC/TF2 items so I decided to pre-order it.

The only games I tend to purchase at full price are the $9.99 - $14.99 games. The only one I have bought over that price was Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition when it dropped. And even then it was only $19.99

If "full price" is more than $20, no.

Not much, last game I bought at full price was Sleeping Dogs.

On tuesday I will buy Rome 2. But I usually wait for it to go on sale most games dont offer much replay value.

I was prepared to get Saints Row 4 at full price but it had 10% off for pre-ordering. Before that i hadn't paid full price for a game in a long long time.

Wait wait i take that back, i paid full price for Dungeon and Dragons: CoM though full price for that was $15

Most games I don't but once in a great while there will be one I don't mind paying full price for.

These stupid sales and pirates are why some devs are giving PC the finger.

Such as? You do realize devs / publishers are the ones who set pricing?

for $50-60? no, but then i rarely do that for any platform. Im all for supporting devs, but with how many games come out nowadays i just cant afford full price any more.
