Buying games you don't need just because they are cheap.

I have bought way too many games this month mostly because most of them were discounted.

October purchases:

Grand Theft Auto V - $60
Terraria - $7.50
Deathsmiles - $13
Akai Katana - $14
Bioshock Infinite - $15
Darksiders 2 - $9
Dishonored - $9
Wet - $5
Halo 3 ODST - $5
Silent Hill - $6
Okami HD - $6
The Wolf Among Us Faith - $5

Yea I got problems lol. Got some good deals but I could have gone without half of those. Just can't pass up a good sale.

What about you guys?

Usually only for arcade games because I never know when they'll go back on sale. But I'll only buy the games I'm interested in playing.

I try not to do backlogs anymore. At one point I had over 10 games in my backlog with half of them rpgs, and it was at that point that I decided not to buy anything anymore nomatter what.

Yes, because most of the time they don't go on sale for a long time after that.

Yea my backlog is ridiculous. It can get a bit overwhelming when trying to choose what game to play.

I am going to try and cut back on my impulse buys next gen.

If they fit my preferred genre, yes . For example, I won't buy or even get a platformer even it is a Free Games with Gold . I'm just not into platformers or Shmups .
