Do You Purchase Games From Annualised Franchises Like FIFA, NBA 2K, Call of Duty, etc?

Yes, every year 97 8.96%
Yes, but only every other year 64 5.91%

Used to, but not any longer 250 23.08%
No, never 505 46.63%

This week's front page poll. We're entering that time of the year where annualised franchises make up a lot of the new releases hitting the charts, so on that topic - do you ever purchase any of these games? I'm talking things like FIFA, Madden, NBA 2K, Call of Duty, PES, WWE, and so on.

Around the Network

Madden and CoD.

I wish, but there are too many other games now.

If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

Yes every year for CoD and Fifa.

There was a new Pokémon game every year in 2009-2013, so I guess that counted as a yearly franchise (sort of).

Around the Network

I used to with COD starting with Modern Warfare 2 to Black Ops 3 ( I did buy COD4 and WaW too).

Proud to be a Californian.

Used to be into COD, but not anymore. I started getting into the NHL series recently, but NHL 18 was my first.

Made a bet with LipeJJ and HylianYoshi that the XB1 will reach 30 million before Wii U reaches 15 million. Loser has to get avatar picked by winner for 6 months (or if I lose, either 6 months avatar control for both Lipe and Hylian, or my patrick avatar comes back forever).

I used to buy CoD and Assassin's Creed every year, but I stopped. Nowadays I mainly rent games through Gamefly, only buying either huge singleplayer games like Fallout or Witcher, or multiplayer games that I feel like I will get alot of hours of enjoyment out of, or digital only games that are on sale for a really good price.

Not yearly.

Pretty rare I get any of those in general actually. None of the EA ones in any case, they’re by EA. Have occasionally bought a CoD or Assassin’s Creed but it usually stops at one per generation.

Yes, but not regularly. I bought CoD MW2, Blackops 3 and may get Blackops 4.

If AC counts I've only just started with them, Ezio Collection and then AC3.
