When it comes to buying video games, many of us can remember making a purchase we later regretted. Video game marketing is designed to encourage people to make quick decisions based on cool graphics or a sensational trailer. But, when you get the game home you find that the game play is not all that great or that the difficulty level leaves much to be desired. With that in mind, here are some tips for buying video games that might help you avoid making bad choices.
1. Don't fall into the "gotta have it now" trap
Video game marketers want to fool you into thinking that, not only do you need the game, but you need it the day it comes out. By centering large promotions around a particular release date, companies guarantee good numbers for initial sales. This also ensures that they will get some level of sales even if the game's reviews end up being bad. So don't fall prey to this trap. Even though it's tempting to be one of the first to have the game, it's much more prudent to wait a few weeks after release to get some feedback on the game's quality. Additionally, the price will soon go down from it's release-date sticker. If you can wait it out you'll be able to buy more wisely and economically.
2. Don't buy a game without reading some reviews of it
Good decisions are informed decisions, and you shouldn't make an investment in a game unless you already know it's of a certain quality. Game trailers can look amazing and tell you nothing about the quality of the game itself. Even screen shots don't tell you much, as companies can simply use the best graphical portions of the game to grace the back of their packages. Try to read both professional and typical user reviews to get an idea of the true quality of the game. After you feel pretty confident the game is a good one, only then should you shell out the cash for it.
3. Shop with the long-term in mind
It's easy to be drawn in by games that look new and intriguing, but you know your tastes better than anyone else. Think about what games tend to hold your interest for the long-term and try to buy mostly those types of games. It's okay to try something new every now and then, but try to keep your library stocked with your favorite type of game, as it's sure to give you the longest amount of game play.
4. Shop the bargain bins
There are also steep discounts to be had on games that are a couple years old. Although game technology progresses quickly, it doesn't move so fast as to make games of two years ago obsolete. You can get games for deep price cuts that will provide you with dozens of hours of game play, and the price is surely worth it. These discount games are a great way to keep yourself occupied while you save up for the next blockbuster.
