It's a great thing to practice, but for some games waiting means having to hunt one down online later and gamble on its condition with a purchase. An in some rare cases paying above release price, that happened to me with Gravity Rush Remastered, Damn I regret waiting to pick that one up.

I never buy a single player game at launch. My backlog is so big, I can wait until the game drops to $19.99 - the complete version with all the DLC.

For MP games, I’ll wait a few weeks after launch to see how it performs.
