    Game Series You Buy Without Hesitation

    This week I excitedly picked up the collector's edition of the new Final Fantasy, a pleasure I have enjoyed on every release day of the series since playing through FFVII on the PS1. However, my girlfriend thought it was strange that I purchase new games when the used versions of the same game are available at a lesser cost within a week of the initial release. My defense is that there are some game series that I like so much that I pre-order every time because they have never let me down and feel that it is my way of showing appreciation to the companies for their product.

    And so, I thought I would create a post to see if there are others like myself who pre-order certain game series without hesitation.

    1) What series do you buy without reservations?
    • For me, there are only two that I can think of: Final Fantasy and Resident Evil.
    2) What series do you no longer buy because it has lost its way in your opinion?
    • I used to buy the Twisted Metal games.
    3) What series is close to being added to your must buy/pre-order list?
    • I am likely to add Uncharted to my list, depending on how I enjoy the latest.

    *There must be at least three games to the series.

    I almost put down Silent Hill, but it lost my attention after the second game. I thought the first one released on the PS3 was a good return to the series though, and it still remains in my opinion the scariest game on the PS3, but I would love to hear of other contenders to this title (i.e. scariest game in the PS3); Dead Space is a close second in my opinion.

    I don't like the rule "there must be at least 3 games", this is a question of opinions and that stops it

    Anyway;

    God of War
    Final Fantasy
    SSX
    Infamous
    Demon's/Dark Souls (whatever the next one will be called, if there is one)
    Far Cry
    Bioshock
    Diablo

    Probably more but those spring to mind

    For me it's not really about the franchise it's mostly about trailers, all around hype, and pre-order goodies but like a sucker I always drop a pre-order for the WWE games no matter how good or bad they are. Infamous is another I will pre-order without thinking twice and street fighter x tekken was one I didn't even think about before dropping a pre-order

    1. Automatic purchase (however I rarely pre-order or buy full priced. I always wait for a good deal, but I make it a priority that I absolutely must get these games.)
    - GTA, Wipeout, Killzone, Katamari, Uncharted, Assassin's Creed, Mass Effect, MGS, LBP, Yakuza, Batman (by Rocksteady)

    2. Used to buy (Games I used to buy, but now go on game by game basis)
    - Final Fantasy, Tekken, Soul Calibur, Diablo, Tony Hawk, Resident Evil

    3. Climbing the ladder to automatic status
    - Darksiders, Battlefield, Just Cause, Demon's/Dark Souls

    Having said, I would also automatically purchase any of these is sequel(s) were made
    - Red Dead Redemption, Bulletstorm, Brutal Legend

    Probably more in there but you get the drift
