I don't pre-order. I just buy the game a week ahead of release and I get it day one, if not a day or two early. I don't see any reason to pre-order since I don't care about special editions.

@ShadowWarrior You weren't to know. I wouldn't have answered if it wasn't okay!

Used to preorder a lot, but now I only do for games I really want to play day one or think will become difficult to get hold of down the line. I have been caught out before where I've not preordered something and then it's out of stock everywhere and expensive on eBay. In the past Amazon have let me down with some of my preorders, such as Danganronpa V3 on the Vita. I had to quickly get it from somewhere else the day of release before it went out of stock.

At the moment all I have preordered is the special edition of Dragon Quest XI. I normally don't bother with special editions as I don't have room for them, but I'm making an exception for this. Really looking forward to playing it!

I have Shenmue I & II preordered on PS4 and then in a few weeks I'm going to preorder Yakuza Kiwami 2 and Marvel's Spider-Man. I usually don't like to preorder long before the game is out since you never know what might change during that time. The game could be delayed, or like with the Spyro Trilogy, 2/3 of the games won't even be on the disc. I have Shenmue preordered now because I got a discount, otherwise I would've probably waited until next week or something.

I don't tend to pre-order much, I think the last thing was Dark Souls 3, but I will be pre-ordering the next Halo when I can as I really enjoy that.

I really don't need to pre order games due to the ridiculous back log i have but just lately I can't seem to stop.Octopath Traveller and Ys for the Switch were my last pre-orders and i have yet to find time to play them.
However I do have Spiderman special edition and Dragon Quest XI on pre-order for the ps4 and as Dragon Quest is my most hyped for game EVER i WILL be starting that on the day.
I'm trying real hard to not click the pre order button for Valkyria Chronicles 4 on the Switch after playing the fantastic demo..

Try not preorder much as I really do not see the point, especially months in advance. Usually only 2 - 3 games a year, and then it will be a couple of weeks before it is released.

I've been burnt a couple of times (Watchdogs and Destiny) when I have not enjoyed the game so the game will usually be a title I pretty much know I will enjoy, or if I want to support the dev or type of game (like God of War, single player with no dlc).

So at the mo I have nothing pre-ordered and I don't feel like I'm missing out on anything.

I think the only game I've ever pre-ordered was Fallout New Vegas, for the special edition. Quite tempted to pre-order Red Dead though.

Good job, Parappa. You can go on to the next stage now.

@kyleforrester87 Nah, but if you pre-order you get two sets of clothes for them.

That's the key. I'll only pre-order things I know I'm gonna love, or games that are part of an ongoing storyline where I'm desperate to find out what happens next.

Quite often, everything else either appears on PS Plus someday (and my backlog is big enough that the wait won't be boring) or is popular enough to make finding new copies months / years down the line more realistic, because it'll be word-of-mouth or amazing review scores that get me curious and those kinds of games stick around (this year's example: Red Dead Redemption 2).

My best friend pre-ordered both Watch_Dogs and Destiny and has the same regrets as you.

@RogerRoger The early good reviews of God of War was one of reasons why I pre-ordered it. I dislike it when I hear of review embargoes and makes me think they either have something to hide or have not much confidence in their product.

@LastYearsModel By any chance, do you write in to GameCentral? Your user name is the same as a regular contributed to that site.

@JohnnyShoulder Yeah, encouraging people to pre-order your game at the same time as enforcing a review embargo is self-defeating, in my view. And yet it's 2018 and here we are!

I think I pre-ordered Monster Hunter a few days before it came out. And Dead Cells a few hours before it came out. But I like to be confident it's a geat game I'm getting, so I rarely pre-order, what with the embargos usually being so close to release.

I tend to pre order quite a lot personally, I think it's generally quite difficult to buy a poor game these days, particularly when we are talking about AAA titles.

I have Dead Cells (physical copy), Spiderman, Red Dead, Tomb Raider, The Last of Us and Days Gone pre ordered currently. While I am not suggesting these are all guaranteed masterpieces, I have seen enough to feel confident that I will personally really enjoy these games.

I don't tend to pay much attention to reviews and online negativity, these days there is so much information and gameplay footage available that it's quite easy to determine if a given game appeals to me or not. Once I see enough to pique my interest I will pre order with my fave online games retailer who don't charge you until dispatch.

Currently...

Spider-Man - Special Edition
Shadow of the Tomb Raider - Croft Edition
Red Dead Redemption 2 - Ultimate Edition
Assassin's Creed: Odyssey - Gold Edition
Destiny 2: Forsaken - Digital Deluxe Edition

These were all pre-ordered because of the fact these are all 'special' editions and, with the exception of D2:F, the type of game of tend to pre-order - I don't normally pre-order normal 'editions'. D2:F is less of a 'game' and more an add-on and I don't think its available physically and pre-ordered for ease and 'bonus' content - especially as its the game I have been playing the most lately.

Why can't life be like gaming? Why can't I restart from an earlier checkpoint??

@BAMozzy What's with everything being a "Gold Edition" this year? You mention Odyssey, and I've got Hitman 2 and Just Cause 4... I don't remember so many at once, and they're all from different publishers!
