Lol dude how many games do you buy? It seems like you must go down to EB every month and just tell them to hand over every new release there is.

Waiting for your inevitable Horizon: Zero Dawn screenshots. Apparently that game is supposed to be a looker and then some.
I work roughly 48-60 hours a week. Over the past few years I've probably bought around 30-35 games per year.
Worked a 12 hour shift today.

I do most of my pre-orders from Amazon or Best Buy E3 sales for the 20-30% off deals.
I don't go to EB Games at all unless I have some games I don't want anymore (such as Just Cause 3) and if they have a good trade promo towards consoles or double credit
(PS4 Pro deal, Nintendo Switch deal).



I usually pre-order any games I might have interest in playing during the E3 promo and if I change my mind later I cancel them.
(ie. I cancelled Watch Dogs 2, and Hitman the Complete Season last year)

It is more convenient to pre-order at Amazon because you can cancel individual items from orders manually on your end if you change your mind,
instead of having to phone in to Best Buy customer service every time to ask them to cancel certain items off of multiple item orders.
Amazon's shipping promptness is inconsistent however, even with Amazon Prime.

However, I've probably only completely finished around 20% of the games I bought last year because of the lack of time.
A lot of games got delayed into 2017 or release in early 2017 to avoid having to compete with the holiday lineup (ie. avoiding releasing near Call of Duty, or Red Dead Redemption 2).

Seems like a waste of money at that point, if you don't finish them all.

There's no rule that says you have to play every release to be a fan of video games. Unless that's your thing, then keep on.

Well maybe he enjoys buying games as much as he does playing them. By his own estimation he's taking home 3 titles a month, so it's no surprise he's getting all the new releases. Most people never finish their games anyway but by this point, MS, Sony and Nintendo should be fighting over him, being such a valued customer and all.

It's a great time to be a nerd.

Im a PC and PS4 player and I must say that Horizon is a really really good looking game.
HDR 4K solid 30fps great dev job on that game.

It's pretty until they move.

The animations are way off.

Game is good though.

Horizon only runs at 30fps even on the PS4pro, fyi.
