I don't know about anyone else, but I don't tend to preorder games too often. I'm a bit of a scrooge in that regard - I'd rather wait until it goes down in price, or I'm able to trade in some existing titles to get it cheaper.

That being said, the last game I preordered was Guild Wars 2. Prior to that, it was The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. What about you guys?

Battlefield 3 for the 360 because they didn't make me put any money down on it and I just wanted the Gamestop guy to shut the hell up.

I never actually redeemed that preorder.

Xenoblade I think, and probably Ni No Kuni in a few days.

The first and only game I have ever preordered was gears 3 because I really wanted to get a code for the beta.

I believe The Last Story and Xenoblade Chronicles were the last two games I pre-ordered. I almost never do it, but those two seemed like games that could quickly get hard to find (especially Xenoblade), and plus I figure I would let Nintendo know with my wallet that I appreciate them bringing 'em Westward.

Persona 4 Arena only for the Arranged Soundtrack. Gotta say Atlus usually is pretty good in getting extra goodies for fans.

I can't quite remember which one was more recent, but it was either Assassin's Creed III or Halo 4.
 
EDIT: Oh, and I don't pre-order games that often, it's almost unheard of for me to have two so close together, I'm just reeeeally looking forward to these games.

Honestly, I can't remember. It had to have been like 4 years ago though. I didn't even preorder anything when I worked at GameStop. I never really saw the point even though it was my job to convince people otherwise.

Prepurchasing Guild Wars 2 is about as close as I've come to preordering something.

Halo 4, cause i know i'm going to get it so having it sent to my house just seemed like the right (lazy) thing to do.

i currently have Persona 4 Golden pre-ordered and that's because it was a little under $35 on Amazon for awhile so i preordered it then to save some money on it.

NHL 13 - $15 giftcard comes with it from Amazon, plus I usually always pick up the NHL series each year.

Need for Speed: Most Wanted - Amazon had it marked down to $50 so I hopped on that.

Those are really the only two games I'm looking forward to for the rest of the year. Black OPS 2 is up there, but I'll probably pick it up at the tail end of the year.

PlayStation All-Stars: Battle Royale at the same time as Persona 4 Arena. I'll need to pre-order Persona 4 Golden pretty soon, too.

BF3 limited edition mainly because it was still $60 and you got the back to Karkand DLC when it came out

Diablo 3 so I could preload it. I got to play it a bit that mourning before the servers set on fire and stated that way for the rest of the week. So it was worth it.

After wasting my hard earned money on a 60$ L.A. Noire pre-order I learned to never fucking do it again. Wait for the game to come out, watch videos and read reviews to make sure it has good gameplay that will entertain me and be worth the cash, hell even pirate the game to make sure it runs well and isn't a broken port if it's on PC, then when it meets my standards for a good video game, I shell out the cash.

The only thing I pre-ordered after L.A. Noire is Battlefield 3 because, come on. Battlefield.

Any time there's a game that I'm fairly certain I'll want to play, I pre-order it on Amazon. If I change my mind, I can always cancel it without penalty.

Right now, I have five games pre-ordered on Amazon, and the most recently placed one is NFS: Most Wanted.

I ended up pre-ordering The Last Story on Thursday because I was in the EB Games near my work and found out that their was a Canada-wide 1 week delay on the game. I was asked if I wanted to pre-order it and I though: why not? I also pre-ordered Borderlands 2 from the same location because I thought the Mechromancer class was something I would want to try when that comes out.

Usually I don't pre-order most games, there tends to be enough copies to go around and I like to read some reviews beforehand. Pre-order bonuses tend to be really lame and Collector's Editions have been moving away from the stuff I like to see in them (good Behind-the-Scenes Documentaries).

I will pre-order Blizzard Collector's Editions since they tend to go fast and Atlus games since they tend to ship in limited quantities. But now that Best Buy is carrying Atlus games I don't think I really need to do that anymore.

I don't always pre-order, but when I do, I pre-order on Amazon because there are no extra fees.

Hell I'll probably be preordering Borderlands 2 pretty soon.

Borderlands 2 cause I think that is how I am supposed to get the Mechromancer. Though it might have been from a new purchase, I'm not sure. Either way, Borderlands 2 has been pre-ordered and if it doesn't have that then I'm gonna be sad.
 
I usually don't pre-order a game if it doesn't have some bonus that I'd feel ripped off to not get or if it is a niche Japanese game. I've had a few purchases where I bought the only copy of a game they had... and I had pre-ordered it. So they didn't intend to stock the game outside pre-orders.

I pre-order all the time not for the bonus stuff but because why not I'm going to get the game anyways. Last game I pre-ordered was Darksiders 2 but I have Borderlands 2 (ultimate super dooper expensive edition) and Assassin's Creed 3 Collectors I only did the collectors stuff for those games because I love both series and I finally make decent money.

I just pre-ordered Dark Souls on PC. I guess that makes me a horrible person, but i'm excited for it.
