Why anyone volunteers to buy into that gambit I honesty have no idea. It's not like you have to wait long - you waited months or years for the game, but you can't wait a few hours to see if the game is a disappointment before committing your money to it?
Well as I said earlier I pre-ordered for convenience and the reviews weren't going to change my mind. For what it's worth I bought a game called Fallout 4 that you may have heard of. It had good reviews, I didn't like it. So am I a dunce for pre-ordering a game with no reviews and liking it? Or am I a dunce for post-ordering a game with good reviews and not liking it, I don't know what I should do SenorBeef!
