...that you've done to purchase a game?

I personally just COULD NOT WAIT for Might and Magic 6.  I called the bank and arranged to skip a payment to buy a new vid card and the game.  Man was I young and stupid, although the game was really good.  slywink

I had MOO3 on order from EB's website, but when it was held up for a day I couldn't resist and went to the store that night and bought a copy.

I'm weak... :cry:

When NBA Jam was first released for the SNES, my brother faked a sickness in ELEMENTARY SCHOOL that day.  Then, when my Mom took him to Fred Meyer for medicine and such, he happened to coax her to buy NBA Jam.

Believe it or not, awhile later NBA Jam Tournament Edition was released (or something along those lines - a continuation nevertheless) for the SNES.  And yep - he faked sickness once again and coaxed our Mom into buying it the day it came out.

And for that, TheMissingLink, I salute you!   biggrin

Yes, to me it is.

Sorry, pet peeve.

Personally I've never stretched the boundaries to buy a game. Except that the fact I buy games at all when I have dozens I own that I've never played (working on that though).

Perhaps calling 11 different stores to find the last un-reserved copy of EQ in DFW on release day would qualify. The day before release I wasn't even remotely interested, I spent the next 3 years playing religiously.

I cant think of a game I went out of my way to buy past perhaps going to 3-4 different stores.

But I did wake up at 5am to get in line to buy an XBox. got the first one in the store at 8.

I'd already purchased Half-Life 2 through Steam but I did wake up at 3:00 a.m. to play it for the first time.  My wife thought I'd gone batty.

In college I drove from Purdue to Indianapolis to buy a TurboGraphx-16, and once I drove to Chicago so that I could play Mechwarrior in the pods at North Pier (not Navy Pier, there was no such place yet.  Unless I have that backwards...)
