Forums - Gaming Discussion - What is the Dumbest Reason You Ever Bought a Game?

I bought one of the Korg DS synthesizers because it had more than eight stickers of "dropping price". It's original price was 45€, it costed me 2€.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

I bought many many games on Steam that I will probably never get around to playing just because they were on sale. That is a dumb reason.



Signature goes here!

i bought blade runner on pc when i was 8 years old because the trailer of the city looked cool but i had no damn clue what it was xD



I bought Ride to Hell Retribution, Magus, and Alone in the Dark specifically because I knew they were the Room and Troll 2's of video games (so bad they're good). None of them disappointed.

I adore terrible to the point of comedic games. I did the same with Aliens Colonial Marines and Duke Nukem Forever years after they released for the same reasons but they weren't as enjoyably awful.



bought some games i never played like animal crossing new leaf and recore then sold them sealed brand new



Cute and honest Sega Saturn fan, also noone should buy Sega grrrr, Sega for life.

NES - Back to the Future. The only good thing about the game I can say is it taught me a valuable lesson as a child which is loving a movie is a really dumb reason to buy a video that shares it name.

Pretty much this for me during 2011-2013.

I rarely buy anything from Steam sales nowadays, and I make sure to use the wishlist feature so I know what games I actually want, and not just buy anything on impulse.



Dark Cloud. Because the character on the cover reminded me of Link.

I enjoyed it though, so it was all good.

I bought Sonic Forces just to annoy a friend. Nice use of money.
