Up For Debate - With So Many Games In The Next 2 Months, What Are You Planning To Buy?

Written by Jon Sutton on Fri, Mar 25, 2016 2:00 PM

Take a quick glance at the release schedules and you could be forgiven for thinking it’s the holidays. Spring is the new winter in gaming it seems, and they’re absolutely queuing up to smash us in the face with blockbuster after blockbuster.

Over the next two months we’re going to be treated to the likes of, deep breath, Quantum Break, Dark Souls 3, Ratchet & Clank, Battleborn, Stellaris, DOOM, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, Homefront: The Revolution, Mirror's’ Edge Catalyst, Overwatch and Total War: Warhammer. That’s just the absolute biggest titles as well. That’s 11 AAA games in the space of 49 days. We’re getting a huge game every four days.

It’s enough to make a wallet shriek and run to the hills before its innards are unceremoniously ripped out. Few if any of us are going to be able to afford all of the games we want in April and May, let alone the time to play them all. In fact, casting an eye back to October / November of 2015, this is actually a stronger line-up in my opinion.

Decisions need to be made then. The most important of decisions - which games to buy. What are you prioritising for the coming months? Which games are you most anticipating? Will you be waiting for the inevitable sale discounts? Let us know!

Which games are you getting at launch? Check all that apply

I already pre-ordered Dark Souls III. The only game left on my to-buy list is Mirror's Edge Catalyst. My wallet can rest after that.

Honestly, I don't buy games at launch. I am willing to wait a few months for the price to drop, I just have too many expenses. Waiting for a Steam Sale, Humble Bundle or just plain waiting saves me a ton of money. That being said.. after being involved in bot the Crysis 3 Alpha ad Beta tests, I was extremely hyped and pre-purchased Crysis 3 with all the trimmings. But that should give you an idea of when the last time I was willing to shell out $60+ US for a game was.

I'll be getting Dark Souls 3 at some point. I really have no interest in any of the other games. I can imagine my friend will convince me into Overwatch.

None! I still have current games I want to finish and a couple of games to buy like assassins creed syndicate and witcher/rottr expansions. That should keep me busy while I wait for an opportune time to get a new gpu for these newer games.

None.I would love to have Doom and Dark Souls 3,but it's generally not a good idea to get games at launch IMO due to possible issues,bugs etc
