    None. I don't pre-order games. I'm cheap so I wait for game prices to go down before I grab any game I like. :)

    BF3, and never again will I. I can just go Day 1 usually and get the limited edition anyway, such a waste to care and go.

    Halo 4, and it was quite worth it.
  4. To satisfy my childish side I pre orderer sonic all stars racing transformed. Damn I was felling the PC is almost only war, fps or medieval rpgs (that or pixel games), I totally needed a new game that would allow me to play online and have fun, a difrent game. I was actualy impressed, the game ir way better than I expected, its a really addicting game, and with online only gets better. Totally worth my money.

    Arma 3. 100% worth it. Anything besides that I won't pre-order.

    Need for Speed Most Wanted (2012). I even got a T-Shirt including DLCs when I bought it. This pre-order thing has its perks.

    TrackMania 2 Stadium, but that is after I put in about 20 hours on the beta. It was only a whopping $9 on Steam. I would never pre-order a AAA title. $60 plus awfully common day 1 DLC is pretty pricey for this college student. That being said, I scrolled across this article looking for the Weekend Game deals, that's where I find my steals. Keep the inside scoop coming TS!

    Last one was Simcity. Worked out well in the end because I got a $20 Origin credit for the predorder and then a game for free (Picked Dead Space 3) because of Simcity's sloppy launch.

    The one before that was Dead Island.

    Bioshock infinite on steam. as above simply because of the 2 games that came with it. Enjoying xcom much more then bio to be honest.
    Before that assassins creed 3 simply because I like the Creed games and while some of aCreed3 was disappointing and disjointed it was still a fun game so I will probably pre order black flag though the prices are a bit stupid for even the basic edition at the moment.

    Well I've preordered Duke Nukem Forever & Crysis 2 so I've learned my lesson, never again unless I'm 110% sure it is a good game.
    Last game I preordered was Starcraft II Heart of the Swarm, great game.
    Before that was actually Diablo III but on launch day I could not login, and due to some personal matters I have not played it since...

    Borderlands 2, and I do not regret it. Most games I'll wait until their price drops a little on steam, but getting it at the same time as my friends really enhanced the experience.

    I never really did preorder anything for myself, most things I have are sales / bundles. If anything that would be more of, in the way of gifts I would do such things. Especially if I see someone playing a beta, and they enjoy it or something I've been waiting for. IE: La-Mulana on Steam, well worth the price especially as a 'hatred' gift to friends. xD

    Hope to see more enjoying it. ^^

    Duke Nukem forever. That's the last time I do something so stupid. Now I wait for all games to come down in price before I jump in. I'm still awaiting Bioshock infinite to drop. Won't be too long now.

    Guild Wars 2, mainly because of the beta weekends they offered for pre-orders :)
  18. Normally I am against pre-ordering; however, when TellTale came with a new series of Sam and Max, I had to pre-order the entire season.

    You crack me up, little buddy!

    Pre-ordered Borderlands 2 for about $33. (was kind of a gamble from a shady website but it worked 100% on steam!)
  22. Duke nukem forever

    Simcity and Diablo 3 were the last games I pre-ordered, and I should have learned my lesson with Diablo 3. Simcity is a huge disappointment.
