Topic: Do you buy games but then never play them?

Posts 21 to 40 of 72


I used to but I've learned my lesson. I think it's unnecessary to buy a game I'm not going to play within a month of purchasing it. With the addition of 2013's stellar launch schedule, I'm enforcing this mentality ten folds, lol.

Just for you.

No, I play every game that I buy at least once..

No, though there might've been a couple of times where I buy a game and don't finish it. Ocarina of Time 3D is one of those cases, I got bored of it halfway through. It's still not finished...

This question could be rephrased as "Do you have Steam?"
Of course I'll get around to beating the games eventually though. I don't buy games that I don't intend to play.

All. The. Effing. Time.



Nope I buy games for the sole purpose of playing them. Sometimes I pick them up when they are on sale and don't get to the in awhile but I eventually get to them. The only games that I bought a second copy of for collection purpose was Zelda OoT on the N64 gold cartridge and the misspelled Resident Evil Revelations.

Yeah quite often. I got Xenoblade a couple years ago and have played maybe 1-2 hours out of it.
Lego Batman 2 I got a year ago and have only played about 20 minutes of, not because it is bad. It is a great game, it was probably because I bought Lego Batman 1 at the same time and played the heck out of that one and never really got around to the sequel.

I fully intend to play every game I buy/receive but sometimes it takes a long time to get round to actually playing them. It's further compounded by the regular release of new games, though I rarely buy on release day unless it's something I desperately want to play right away, or I feel there's a danger of it becoming rare.

I have quite a large backlog of PS2 RPGs but will play them one day. Last year I managed 3 PS2 games and aim to do the same this year.

nope the only game I got close to doing this was on my PC the game didn't work so I never played it but since it was free this doesn't count....
I normally play a game as soon as I buy so they get at least 2-hour of attention(I'm counting the ones I really disliked so it's a good minimun seeing that I never sold any of my games...)

goodbyes are a sad part of life but for every end there's a new beggining so one must never stop looking forward to the next dawn

I did take a while to play my copy of Bulletstorm and Return to Dreamland but besides that...not really.

Bioshock is 10 years old. Let's play through its horrific environment and see why its so beloved!

While I fully intend to give every game I buy the time it deserves, I've been finding that with my busy schedule has caused my back log to grow. (I've still only put 5 minutes in to Mega Man Anniversary collection). Oh well, that's what the summer's for.

It happens. Too many good games coming out to support, not enough time to play.

I have way too many games that i never played. Most of them are cheap indie titles but some are more expansive ones and most are on Steam. Damn you Steam Sales!
I had a new years resolution this year that i would stop doing that. And so far it worked out pretty well. I would have spend way more money this year already if i had not questioned myself everytime i was about to buy a new game. I still picked up 8 games on the 3DS eShop and i have at least 4 titles lined up for this year i really want to buy.

Yes, but I've recently started the "don't buy games unless I'll play them immediately" policy. I still don't follow it that well, though.
