Have you ever pre-ordered any game? I pre-ordered Civ 6 because the trailers were really amazing, but only to find out that my computer cannot keep up with the needed requirements for the game to run smoothly. I ended up upgrading my computer and costing me more to play this game.
No, I haven't pre-ordered any games, I thought about doing it, but no, I haven't. I think pre-ordering is the way to go to avoid any kind of delay in playing games when they first come out, computer issues notwithstanding. I need to upgrade my computer too, I'm wondering how much it's going to cost, but whatever the cost is, I have to get it done.
I can wait for the game to be released and then pay for it when I've tried it from friends or had tried it in a demo version. Pre-ordering games will benefit the game developers more than the gamers because many games are released with tons of bugs.
@Incredible Iron I also prefer to somehow preview a game before committing to a purchase. On principle, I'm leery of pre-ordering games, but it does have it's advantages. There are a few games I'd consider pre-ordering even though I know that without playing a bit of the game first, disappointment is a strong possibility. I won't pre-order a game because I'm banking on it being good, but because I'm very curious about the game or franchise.
