IF Skyrim was to go on 50% OFF would you buy it or wait for next time??

Hello

I just want opinions from people who are thinking about getting Skyrim.

IF there was a 50% OFF on it would you buy it or wait for a better offer in a future Sale.. for example in the future you may get 75% OFF on Skyrim GOTY etc

I was given some good advice from someone in relation to Borderlands GOTY.. which was that yes purchase Borderlands GOTY but not Borderlands 2.. the logic being in future you may see Borderlands 2 GOTY at a lower price etc

It seems like a good idea.. but Skyrim was on the list of "games to get in the Sale" for me I like the game a lot..

If you look at Batman AA GOTY as an example which was dirt cheap on offer at the start of the Sale.. if you got that before you would have not got an amazing offer as it was in this Sale.

I am sad to say I missed the Batman pack (which I wanted) cause I did not understand that Vista games work on Windows 7.. but it will at the TOP of the list when the next Sale is on.

Thanks in advance

This is a purefly subjective question. How badly do you want to play Skyrim?

I purchased the game at $40 and thought it was worth it at that price point.

I understand everyone will have different opinions (in other words subjective).. I just want to know what other people are going to do... I DO like the game a lot so I may get it this time.. can't decide lol

Skyrim has been 50% off during both the Summer and Autumn sale. Just wait for it to be a daily or flash sale. It'll be 50% or more off again. But to answer the question... Yes I'll be purchasing Skyrim when its 50% or more.

Lol, i'm planning to purchase the GOTY version a few months or year later.

It counts how long do you want to wait to play Skyrim. It's going to take a while before a GOTY edition even becomes available let alone on sale, so if you really want to play it just buy it on sale and then get the rest of the dlc when you get through playing Skyrim on the next sale.

It's my rule of thumb with games with DLCs
Did it with Borderlands, I'm waiting for BL2 GOTY version, and will probably wait for Skyrim GOTY version as well.
Having a big game backlog allows one to take things with more patience.

Thanks to everyone who replied.

Skyrim is an awesome game but a lot of people got good points about DLCs

BTW a DLCS is like an expansion pack , yes?
Brandles Dec 22, 2012 @ 7:24pm 
Yeah I would consider them the same thing. Although sometimes an DLC is just another character soooo then again don't know if you would consider a character an expansion pack.. Like in BL2 one of the DLCs is a new chacater..

No it wasn't, the release was buggy as hell.

If I didn't own it, I wouldn't pick it up for anything less than 66% off.

Skyrim is already 50% + another 20% off. It also gets cheaper than that. I thought it was a good deal at $60. Game was very stable for me.

BTW I just checked out gameplay videos for Dragon Age etc and it looks a lot like Oblivion/Skyrim etc
