When they hype train is running on full steam, it can be hard to keep perspective. Games you might never have bought suddenly seem like must buys. Perhaps the promises made by the devs are glorious; maybe the trailer is set to a dubstep remix of your favorite song, maybe the game promises to be all things to all gamers. Whatever the cause of the hype, chances are, the game won’t deliver. It may not even be the devs or the marketers’ faults; maybe our own imaginations are to blame for concocting a fantasy that nothing could ever live up to. Regardless, when you’re deciding whether or not a hyped up game is right for you, it’s good to step back and ask your self a few questions.

Do I need it day one?

Failing to ask this question has been the downfall of many a gamer. They’ve seen the trailers, they’ve read the interviews, they know that in a year when someone sees them wearing pre-order bonus armor they’ll feel like a true badass. Trouble is, if you buy the game before anyone has played it, nobody can warn you that the hype isn’t real. So ask yourself if you really need the game day one. For some of us there are games like that, the sequels to our favorites that we’re going to play regardless of what reviewers say. But for many new games coming to the market, there’s no reason to buy it before the reviews come out. If you don’t have to have it day one, maybe wave off for a bit and find out if it’s worth the money.
