    Remember Aliens: Colonial Marines? I almost bought that new. I'd have been really pissed off if I did.

    Not buying new games for 2 kids that are 6 and under. used are perfect for letting them find out what genre they like.

    Last time I got used games was in 2008 when AIseek (a company I worked at) died. Most of the games I buy are either very low cost PC games on bundles, GMG, Steam etc. or (a lot more rarely) reduced price console games. I don't play any of them though. Eh, forgot about the Android games I buy. I do play those sometimes.
  4. I have never bought a used game.. I have every game I've ever bought.

    How hard is that^ ..? If you don't intent to keep playing a game, then why buy it, just go to the movie you depraved invdl. Stop serving urself garbage, anti up and buy ur stufz.

    As a predominate PC gamer, most of my purchases are new, usually sales. However on my console (Xbox), I have purchased both and look for the best deal. Console games have a tendency to stay inflated long after they've been released, even if they are bad, and buying used is the only way to go unless I want to waste money.

    I preorder a new pc game 1-2 times a year that I am really exited about. Then maybe 1-2 new pc game since thats pretty much the only way to buy now. Other then that all used games for console. Pretty big part of why I am switching to console when this rig dies.

    Racket with pricing on these games like with the hardware for them too. Like they prices are fixed until someone on top decides to drop prices. I usually go after sales on games. I am not paying $40 and up for games anymore.
