Wait 5 years after release dates to purchase any and all video games. They'll finally release the finished product for a reasonable price.

It sucks for the first 5 years... but then its totally worth it. Did the same thing with movies first.

No I'm not waiting 5 years for Fallout 4, but I am waiting 5 years for GTA V

I second this. I have a really time finding games I can get into but I'm almost certain I've put more time into GTAO in the last two years alone than any other game in my gaming life. It's insane that so much content is packed into this game and you can get it all for $60 along with all the DLC entirely for free without any gimmicks. It's a crime other '8 hours worth of content' games can sell for the same price as GTA.

If there's one game that deserves full price it's GTAV hands down. Online racing, car modification, skydiving, golf, tennis, darts, co-op missions, vs. missions, deathmatches, jet dog fights, tank battles, mountain climbing, bmxing, dirtbiking, character customization, singleplayer quality heists, survival, director's mode, even a content creator where you can make your own races, deathmatches ect. it's absolutely insane what they've pulled off, all driven in a game engine with some of the most realistic on-the-spot animations and ingame sunsets I've ever seen.

I got a temporary ban for getting shot by a money gun. 2/10 would not recommend.

Five years is probably too long, but waiting a year or two is a pretty good policy for just about every game. Get the "Game of the Year Edition" or some shit like that, with all the DLC, for $15 or whatever.

They make games faster than I play 'em anyway, it's not like I'm missing out on anything. I've just started playing Bioshock Infinite. It's alright.

I picked up gtav on a reasonable Steam sale, but I agree with your main point, don't pay full price.. They will accept your submission and crank up prices even more on the next dlc.

I wonder if it will be worse or better on pc in relating to gta 4. Online for PC was garbage.
