I can and will wait until it is fully released.

No. But it's a massive, massive negative point in my decision.

Edit: I do refuse to even consider an early access open world survival game though. Once I see those tags, I'm out.

Yes because I've had a bad experience with one.

MX vs. ATV Supercross Encore.

It's just a risky situation overall.

Nope. If the game looks good and the guinea pigs before me seem to be reasonably happy in the early reviews I see, I'll buy the game if it looks interesting enough.

I'm extremely sketch on them. If I do buy one its usually 9-12 months after its been out and I can see what kind of progress the devs have made on it.

If they look like they are sand bagging it , I wait till its complete. If its ever complete.

I've got quite a few in bundles but never bought one on its own.

If we're talking something from a developer with a solid track record like ARMA III or Project CARS then I'll consider it. I'm also not entirely opposed to heavily MP centric games that are playable in the early access state like the new UT.

I don't have enough free time to spend it on unfinished games. I don't have a problem with the concept itself or those who are willing to act as guinea pigs, but I can't see myself buying one.

Yeah, I have no interest in willingly purchasing an unfinished game. I can wait.
