The tail-end of the year is steadily approaching once again, and that can only mean one thing if you’re a gamer. Wallets will start suffering from ‘money-loss’ syndrome and sacrifices will have to be made in regards to categorising each new release into the ‘must-buy’ and ‘will have to wait until later’ piles. Unless you’re rich, then you can go nuts.
For us working-class people though, the decision to buy depends on a whole host of different external forces. Previews, gameplay videos, impression pieces and advertising will all subconsciously help us to make the decision to part with some cash or hold onto it for the next big release.
