Thought of the Day: Gaming, 13 Nov 12

All done. 1,000/1,000 in Assassin's Creed II. It took me 65 hours, according to my Raptr.

I'm only three years late, plus or minus a few days. By that, I mean the game was released on 360 in November of 2009. Did I miss out by not pre-ordering this game and buying it at release? Let's examine this.

How I have benefitted by waiting to buy it...

  • I got the game for $12, versus $60.
  • I got to play the DLC along with my original playthrough, instead of having to revisit the game for the DLC after I beat it.
  • Any bugs in the game were ironed out long ago.
  • Online resources were available and well-developed to assist me with the tougher parts of the game (e.g., the feathers).
  • There's no mutliplayer, so no issue there.

What I missed by not buying it on Day 1...

  • I didn't get an Enzio figurine with the pre-order deluxe edition.

Nuts.
