Another year to order games thanks to Gift Cards
For myself being tight on the paper(aka money). I cant afford to buy many games each year. I make a list of the games I want to play and that would have some shelflife in them. For instance in 2009 only game I purchased was Forza Motorsport 3. It isn't till after Christmas that I'm able to buy few more games with some gift cards that i receive from friends and family. I end up using the gift cards n such to buy some used copies of games that i wasn't able to purchase during the year and again this year it was a good stack. I was able to pick up Call of Duty: Black Ops, Assassins Creed: Brotherhood, Dirt 2 and finally Borderlands Game of the Year Edition.
I got these from Gamestop with the buy 2 get 1 free deal they always have. Dirt 2 was my free used copy since Super Street Fighter 4 was unavailable at the time(Insert Sadface). Borderlands was just a want since I've been want to play it for sometime now but didn't want to payout all the money to buy the DLC once I heard there was gonna be a GOTY for it i decided to wait till the time was right and now it is.
UPDATE: well the buying bug got me while waiting to jump into Assassins Creed Brotherhood i realized i should at least play Assassins Creed and Assassins Creed 2 so i can at least be familiar wit the story leading up to it and in doing so i went to Gamestop today and picked them both up along with Tropico 3 just so i could get that Buy 2 Get 1 free deal
