Play games you don't like this October

Alien isolation would be the game I don't think I would like I hate not being able to defend myself

No.

If you pay money for a game you don't like, especially if that copy is digital, then you're wasting your money.

We unfortunately live in the day and age where renting games and demos are all but extinguished systems. Sure, the U.S. has Gamefly, but the U.S. ≠ The World and so game rentals outside of the U.S. just don't happen like they used to.

We're also now moving into the territory of paid demos, which is absolutely ridiculous and something no one should support.

So there's really only 2 options. 1. Research these games as thoroughly as possible before making the decision to try a game you feel like you wouldn't like (or know you wouldn't).

2. Play games you do like so that you're not throwing away $60.

To the author of this article: If you have money to throw away, throw it in my direction please.

It's funny that now that I'm older I'm trying out more games than I did when I was younger. Back then I had less time to game. I joined the military @ 18yrs and got married @23yrs and had 2 kids... So that took up a lot of my time to game and try games that I thought I may or may not like.... Now I'm 46yrs and retired , my kids are grown . Now I have all the time and the money to enjoy playing my favorite hobby .. So I buy games with out thinking about it, if I love or don't I still enjoy doing it. And don't miss out on games because of time and money...
