Do you just buy a game that looks good to you?
Do you only buy games from a specific publisher or console?
Only anime games
only rpgs

or do you just buy them all?


I buy generally what just looks good or worth the money, i have all 4 Systems but usually lean towards ps4 and pc.
Xbox doesn't have anything promising and their tech is lower than ps4, i have a vita and a 3ds but the 3ds gets more play and i just end up buying sales on my vita. Wii U i basically only have for the good exclusives like smash 4 and Xenoblade x later this year.
Although i probably should buy less games its a bad habit cause i work so much so on my days off i goof off and relax more than i do play games.

I tend to buy whatever catches my fancy. There's only 1 exception and that's games published by IF. I'll buy almost anything they sell because right now they are making the games I like.

I buy for PC only, *insert obligatory PC Master Race comment*, as I find very few exclusive titles make me want to purchase a console at the moment.

I used to be heavily into RPG's & MMO's so the majority of my money wen towards these but nowadays I stick with whatever looks good or may show future promise (based on news, leaks etc.).

Though if a wild Sale is to appear, my wallet takes up the challenge !!

I buy games so that i can play them. :P

When i was a kid i liked all sorts of games. Then i got into JRPG's and was obsessed, pretty much bought everyone that was coming out and i stopped playing much else aside from the odd survival horror or fighting game or something.
Eventually got more into western RPG's and then came along soldier of fortune 2 and later battlefield 2 and this changed me into a multiplayer and a social gamer and made me obsessed with fps games.
Also i like rts games alot for LANs and stuff.

So i guess i have bought games more from obsession or for my collection in the past (own games i have never played). Now i buy games often becasue they are on sale (steam) its an addiction at times but also i will sometimes buy a game that i dont even particulary want (GTA V and Ark survival) becasue its what all my mates and clan members are playing.

I love various games in various genres on various pieces of hardware so I don't really limit myself at all. I'll give almost anything a fair shot at impressing me in trailers, Let's Plays, previews, reviews, etc. I am, however, pretty picky about what I actually buy especially when it comes to buying things right at launch. If I'm not really impressed by something or I don't think I'll at least spend a little bit of time playing it right away, I'm perfectly content waiting for a price drop (or just not buying it at all).

Basically, I'm really into gaming as a whole, but I'm into the actual playing and not at all interested in the collection aspects.

Im not too picky about type of games (although i have an immense hatred for Call of Duty type games...sry >.>)

Usually if i see something that looks interesting il look online to see gameplay, and make my decsion based on whether or not id enjoy doing that. Most of my games are for PC, bought on steam. Though i do own all consoles.

Generally it is a combination of things that makes me buy a game.

Usually if it from a genre I like or it looks good and I want to know more then i would buy it.
Posted 7/11/15
I have a PS4, PSVita and a 3DS
To be honest I'm not picky, I'm willing to give games a chance but this way of thinking got me burn several times (The Order 1886 being the most recent one).

When I'm looking for a new game to play, I try not to act on impulse. Usually I'll watch a little of a lets play to see if I like whatever game, but whatever I do, I never just buy something because of who made it. I don't like wasting my money on a game that I don't want to play, so I'll never just buy something because of a cool trailer or from recommendations.

Because of this, I feel like I'm never disappointed when I do get something new to play.

* I spend a lot of time researching the game I'm about to buy. I don't like wasting my time and money on a shitty video game. Research doesn't always pull through, though. When I bought Infamous, I expected a great game. Infamous is one of the worst games I've ever played.

* I mostly game on Playstation and Nintendo consoles. Their exclusives are more often than not good. I also have a PC capable of gaming, but I find the only advantage PC has over consoles is graphical quality. All of my favorite games are console exclusives.

* I don't play anime games.

* I like rpgs but they're not the only genre I play.
