I'm glad I missed God of War 2 when it originally released. That way, when I picked up God of War Collection, I was treated to an awesome game AND I didn't have to wait years to play the follow up. As an added bonus, it was in HD!
I had a similar experience, I missed out of God of War on PS2 and later bought God of War Collection on PS3 and when I saw GoW2's ending I thought to myself "Man I would have been pissed if I had to wait 4-5 years to see what happens".
OT: Little.Big.Planet. I got caught up in the hype surrouding this game and I was thinking of buying it Day One but luckily I got myself a beta code and dodged the bullet.
Signature goes here!
