Do you wait for sales before buying games?
I was always the one who would rush out, pre-order and be among the first to own the games I wanted. It was nice to have it, nice to play it immediately, and nice to experience the newest games at their newest point. Over the past few years, as my priorities have shifted and my ability to game has dwindled more and more due to outside circumstances, I’ve learned to not be so desperate to buy games. I reached the point where I would buy a game and it’s still sitting on my shelf wrapped waiting to be played, part of a growing backlog of games that’s on the “someday” pile.
So now, yeah, I definitely wait for games to be on sale before buying them, and even then, only if I really want those games. Steam sales are my worst moments, but either I’ve enjoyed them less of they’ve become worse in recent times, because even purchases there are becoming scarce. No doubt about it, though, I have certainly become budget gamer when it comes to buying. Even get my scoops on deals from CAG whenever possible.
