Did you ever buy a game just cause everyone else had it or it was just a really big game even though you didnt really want the game? so you would have the game in your collection like everyone else and i guess not feel left out.

i kinda did with Fallout 3 i wanted it but i didnt want it but it got good reviews and praise and everyone liked it so i gave into the peer pressure and got it, although i didnt buy it i asked for it for x-mas. i couldnt asked for something else but its cool. its a great game but its alittle to much RPG for me, i dont really have the patience for RPG's i like just gettin in there and blowin stuff it and killin

No i have never done that but i do look into the most popular games though. I always judge games based on what i have liked but i will never say no to a game even though it isnt something that i have ever enjoyed either.

GTA IV

I had never played a GTA before and thought I would give it a shot. I can see the appeal but it just is not my kind of game.

I was kind of pressured into getting L4D since all my friends had it and I felt left out (no pun intended). It's an ok game, but I could have done without it.

Well, I do research before buying Games and I didn't really bought a Game due to the opinions of others. But I do get influenced when I'm buying local muliplayer Games as they have to fit the taste of my friends and even though I would never play Games like Mario Cart alone, I bought them to have fun playing with friends which I actually have

I usually don't. I have to be careful with my money so I buy a game only when I am really really convinced I will like it. Otherwise I wait till the price drops.

Not exactly. I've never bought a game simply because everyone has it, but I have gotten caught up in the excitement and purchased a game here or there that I just really didn't like and that I've only played once or twice in a sad attempt to have some fun. Gears of Wars and Mortal Kombat Vs. DC were a couple of those.

Yeah, I got Left 4 Dead because a few of my friends had it and we were needing a new online game to play. I am so glad I decided to get it though, I love it.

Halo 3. When I had my first 360 I bought it out of curiosity (i didn't have the black xbox and had only played Halo on PC). After selling my 360 and buying a new one, I bought it again just so that I could play ocassionally with my friends on live.

Halo 3 I bought because everyone else had it... I was never really interested in it till I actually started playing it. Turned out to be a good game, glad I bought it after all.

Yes I have and I will never do that again! Its a waste of money. Its more worth buying what u want. Even if ur the only person u know who plays it. I kinda did bought a few cause of others and ironically, I got bored with those games. For example, Halo 3, Gears of War, and Fallout 3 were a few that I wasted my money on only cause other people had it. I got bored and traded them away.

A few times me and my friends have agreed to all buy a certain game, say maybe because of good reviews or hype.

Like BF:BC, four of us bought it, first one had enough of it in few weeks, but rest of us still get back to it time to time.

Sure, I saw everyone playing Gears 2 and I hated the first one. However, a "friend" lied to me about how the game improved so much and so I believed him and bought it. That person isn't my friend anymore. I had no intentions of getting the game regardless of the fact that my entire buddylist was on it.

Left 4 Dead. Everyone was playing this game and hyping the hell out of it. Too bad it had only 10-20$ worth of content for a 60$ price tag. I should have just rented it. So many regretful purchases.

Yes, Fallout 3, Halo3, and GTA 4. After a while I would start wondering why all the hype about a certain game. I ask myself "May be I am wrong. There must be something amazing about this game that I don't see " So I go ahead and I buy it. :\ The huge hype puts me under a huge pressure thinking that my initial evaluation is absolutely wrong.

Got GTAIV and it wasn't my type of game either. Traded it in for Avatar. LOL, just joking but I did trade it in for another game. For now on I'm going for games I like.
