Topic: Do you buy games at releaseday?

Posts 21 to 37 of 37


Rarely. Only two of the games I got last year actually came out that year and I didn't get them on launch day. The only game coming out this year that I intend on getting on launch day (or maybe the day after) is Animal Crossing: New Leaf. I might have got Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor: Overclocked on launch day if I had a 3DS at the time but even if I hadn't lost my first 3DS a few months before, I might have waited for my birthday due to how close it was to SMT: DSO's release date.


if i dont buy a game on release its very rare that i go and buy it later. so most of my games are day 1s.



Only Ocarina of Time 3D, which I had pre-ordered.

When I had a Job, I'd at least try to buy a game the month it came out, but now with my more limited spending budget, I have to make use of deals (usually on older releases).

The only two games I've gotten on release day are Skyward Sword and Portal 2. I almost never buy games at full price since I can usually get older ones for much cheaper.

Only Japanese games from smaller publishers. I pre-order games like Rune Factory 4, Project X Zone, SMT IV, Etrian Odyssey IV, etc. (wow, a lot of 4s this year...). I don't bother with first-party Nintendo games because those will sell well regardless, and there usually isn't a pre-order bonus for those.

One thing I really like about handheld games is that they're relatively free of the crippling bugs that often seem to affect PC or home console games on release.

Superstorm Nemo didn't stop me from getting Fire Emblem Awakening (along with that cool art book)

But yeah, if I've been waiting for this game for a long time, then I usually get it.

I usually say to myself "Nah, you don't need them at release day."
...Then I usually end up caving a couple days before.

At the moment, it's a rare thing for me to buy a game on release day, simply down to funds. However, one exception my wife and I are making is for Animal Crossing. Her as a physical copy and me as a download version.

Nope. I usually get games for a special occasion like my birthday, Valentines, Easter or Christmas. Or if I beg Mum.
