you don't particularly like... but you bought it anyway just because of it's popularity or just to have it? I did that with halo 3 today haha, i'm not really a big fan of the game myself, but i felt like if i have a 360 i need to own it haha. I was going to buy burnout paradise but i said that can wait i guess.

I've done that maybe once or twice, I bought Prey because of the hype, but I ended up liking it quite a bit....so well maybe I've never done....

wait I know. I hated Wario Ware for the Wii. I bought that because of the GS score, but never a 360 game so far.

Project Gotham Racing 3. PGR2 was amazingly good, especially at it's online popularity height, but PGR3 was a major letdown. PGR4 was better, but I never forgave Bizarre for PGR3.

Same here, I bought because I was a huge Final Fantasy fan if you couldn't tell haha. I ended up thinking 10 was the weakest release in the franchise.

No, and I think its a waste of money to do so.

Edit- But I have bought games that I thought I would like, and ended up not liking. Vampire Rain, The Orange Box to name a few.

Never, I have to know or feel I have a good chance of liking the game. No matter how popular something is such as Guitar Hero for instance, I already know I have zero interest in it so I wouldn't buy it.

yah, I did the same thing for Halo 3. It's not a bad game, it's just got nothin' on Gears of War, Team Fortress 2, and Call of Duty 4.... and BioShock... and Call of Duty 2.

I bought COD4 because it wasn't a WWII game (one of the reasons I stayed away from the franchise) and didn't like it still. I also bought Half Life for the score thinking I wouldn't really like it but it turned out pretty good.

No, I only buy games that look good to me.

I didn't buy Halo 3 because I didn't want it. The popularity of the game means nothing to me.

I did rent Halo 3 just to give it a chance. It was better than I expected, but still glad I only rented.
