Would you buy any games of any cost because of peer pressure?

Title says it all:

Will you get a game that you are not good at just to play it with some of your friends/online friends?

For example:


There are no good games lately (especially in the MMORPG genre). Starcraft 2 is coming soon and I tried the beta and I kinda like it - graphics side and gameplay side, but the problem is I suck at it. -- I am no "RTS Gamer", even if I'm pro and I can learn easily in FPS/MMORPG/Fighting games, I still suck at RTS no matter what I do. But most of my guild members are going to play it.
I'm kinda cheap, so buying it for 60 dollars makes me wanna cut my hair off. I know 60 dollars is definitely a good price for a game that will last you forever but the problem is that there will be more games releasing after SC2. (Like, Blade and soul/Tera/Diablo 3 and more.).


What would you do if you were on my situation (apply the fact that you suck at RTS).

Budget is 800 Dollars w/ no job.

No... I know my taste in games. Sure, I have people tell me to play some certain game, but the truth is, if it is not my kind of game, I'm not going to waste my time or money.

Still, I'll buy games that I'm no good at, just as long as I enjoy them. I know that I'll get better at these games with practice. But no matter how great the reviews are, or no matter how much replay value the game has, I just feel that you are wasting time and money if you don't personally enjoy the game yourself.

Nope, I get the games that hardly has value, although it's quite difficult to find what to get in any game store or convention, I usually browse around first before I find something I actually like. I always go for the bargain!
