How many times have many of us been burnt by a bad game? I can’t even count how many times over the past 15 years.
Since the existence of numerous on-line gaming sites, not that often. I generally don't pre-order or impulse buy games. I usually wait at least a week and let the reviews of the actual release to come out. But I'm probably more cautious than most. *shrug*

Yup. I can't remember the last time I felt burnt by a bad game. Actually, the few I can come up with off the top of my head are all impulse purchases on Steam. I didn't get my money out of Amnesia, Terreria or that dungeon crawling game everyone went nuts over.

I also bought all 3 knowing I may hate them, but, hey, $5-$10 for something many people adore.

The last major AAA game I bought and felt burnt by was probably Doom 3. Seriously, with how many reviews are out there and how reliable word of mouth is on a site like this I feel like I'd actually have to try hard to spend $60 on something I hated.
