I was walking around my local Gamestop earlier yesterday, looking for some bargain that I could possibly take advantage of. Maybe a few old DS games like Final Fantasy A2 or Rune Factory. Or possibly a couple old Xbox games, as my original console is in pristine condition and I’ve been craving that nostalgic feel. When I walked past the counter, holding my $25 copy of Final Fantasy XIV Collector’s Edition, I struck up a conversation with the clerk about preordering future video games. That’s when it hit me. I’m going to be spending $500+ on games in the months between August and December.
