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%
Yes, but only once or twice each generation 167 15.42%
Used to, but not any longer 250 23.08%
No, never 505 46.63%

CoD was the only one, not this year.

madden is nothing but a roster update with menu changes. sometimes even less options or more dumb ones related to the BS card system.

Could say never has, never will... but usually I buy 1 of their titles per gen just in case some friend or relative want to play. And buy it at under 10 bucks.

I buy every COD every year basically. Can't wait for BO4, easily going to be the best COD in a very long time.

I was a regular buyer of the Guitar Hero and Tony Hawk series back in the day back when those were a thing, at least the first 4 or 5 games.

Oh yeah I forgot about Guitar Hero. I did buy a couple of those yearly.

Not anymore!

Happy to say i never have. Never been interested in FPS or sporting games which make the bulk of annualized games. But even if it a series i like i wont buy it if it is annual - the Assassin Creed series as an example.

Fifa, when I was back in Japan.

No. Burnout occurs, even if the game is good. They're more often than not, uninspired. At least that's what I was getting from the sports games, because *cough-cough*, as well as COD , which I bought 4 years in a row at one point. 2,3,4, and WAW. The was both my longest streak of annualized purchases, and my last. It's been quite a while. It helps greatly that I don't buy anything at all from the artists collectives known as EA and Activision. Much less their assembly line games that get squirted out at the games factory on a yearly basis. Not that there's anything truly wrong with buying annualized games. But I'm not reading any posts in this thread, because I don't want to know FOR SURE who I'm better than.

No, but I guess I will buy AC Odyssey at some point.
