Games You've Bought Day One


Super Moderator
Which games have you pre-ordered or gone out and bought day one? For some of us there aren't many, for others there's probably too many to remember.

Don't think I can remember all of mine and I'm not even sure what my first one was. But here goes:

GTA: Vice City, San Andreas, IV, V
Pro Evolution Soccer 3, 4, 5, 6, 2008
Call of Duty 4, Modern Warfare 2
Burnout Paradise
Unreal Tournament III
Metal Gear Solid 4
LittleBigPlanet, 2
Portal 2
Batman: Arkham City
Uncharted 3

Probably the only one I regret is Unreal Tournament, not because it was bad but because it was supposed to be an FPS alternative to CoD 4 but I barely played it and just continued with Modern Warfare. PES 2008 would probably be the next closest thing but that's in hindsight since I wasn't expecting it to suck and I needed a PS3 game since the only one I had was Riiiidge Racer.
Far too many to list. First one I can remember though was ocarina of time for the n64. Pre ordered for launch, picked it up, played for half hour then put up for Christmas.

Shemue 2 is one of my favourite Pre orders. I must've mentioned how excited I was for it to barn Becauae I got a call after hed been out shopping and he saw it in eb/game (game due out Friday this was midweek). I call my local up asap, they confirm they're selling it. I rush there and fag out.

At least there's been no truly horrific games listed so far.

Getting The Last of us on a free trial ith lovefilm though:banderas:
Getting Bioshock Infinite a couple of days after release was the happiest I've been with lovefilm.


It is happening again
Can't remember that many off the top of my head. I think either inFamous or inFamous2 were pre ordered. Far Cry 4, Fifa 15. I actually got Killzone 2 a few days before the official release date.
There's not that many games I pre order these days. That may be partly due to release day embargos, but I think it's also to do with the lack of demos. It used to be that you'd play a demo a few weeks before, and I've pre ordered games on the strength of the demo.


A few more off the top of my head:

Dragon Age: Origins
Dragon Age II
Fallout 4
Heavy Rain
Thief 2: The Metal Age
Thief: Deadly Shadows
Thief (4)
Unreal Tournament III
World of Warcraft


Besides football games, I only tend to go for R* and Uncharted games on day one. Everything else can fuck off, until the prices drop to < £25.

Really just the F's this year, Fallout 4, FIFA and Forza. That said I had a discount on FIFA and claimed back rewards points for Fallout. Only full price day one was Forza, but I know I'll definitely get a ridiculous number of hours play out of it.

Like DF, everything else is either on Gold deals or when the prices drop.
Day ones picked up in a shop are numerous, I'd say triple figures, memorable ones are:

Ocarina of Time: December 1998 - Picked it up from Electronics Boutique and was late for school because of it. On the bus ride home I remember some kids sitting behind me on the bus, and I was worrying they were going to mug me and steal my game.

Majoras Mask: November 2000 - Didn't go in to school so that I could go and pick this up and play it. Missed a school sports day or something to that effect :sweey:

Wii and Twilight Princess: November 2006 - Picked it up before work, ended up having to go out with my girlfriend after work so had to give it my mom to take home with her (10pm) and I remember telling her to make sure she didn't get mugged, or else I'd never forgive her!

Wii U and launch games: November 2011 - Saved so that I could splurge on day 1. Booked day off work and went to Game at about 9am, bought a wii U with Nintendoland, New Super Mario Bros, Zombiu and Darksiders 2. At around 11am after an hour of gaming, I get a call off my moms workplace with the opening line of "There's been an accident, but she's still breathing" what a fucking shit opening line! A cage of stock had fallen on top of her as she was unloading it from a lorry, couldn't enjoy the rest of my first day with the WIi U because of this incident!
