I can't agree with that enough. I hardly buy games on day one these days because I typically gamefly them or wait a bit til they hit a sale, but those are definite day one purchases for me.
I'm psyched for Tomb Raider as well, but it's probably a rental for me.
Tomb Raider looks dope as well but they have release alot of wack games in the past few years. Waiting for more reviews of it.
Bioshock will most likely be my game of the year of 2013. sh*t looks amazing. I'm not even that big on First Person games either but this one got me hooked ever since I played the first one.
God of War has always been a great title. Even the PSP ones were very enjoyable when I finally got to play the collection on my PS3. Haven't played the beta though so I'm curious on how it plays but that is just a bonus.
But yea I hardly buy games on day 1 as well. I think the last game I bought day 1 was Red Dead Redemption and Mortal Kombat (I regret this so much).
I'm still waiting for price drops on Dishonored and AC3 before I buy them. Plus I have a backload of games to play which usually keeps me from buying games day 1.
My backload is Ratchet and Clank HD Collection, Heavy Rain, Darksiders 2, Far Cry 3 (currently playing it), k!llzone 2 (need to finish it), Black Ops 2 campaign, MGS3 HD, MGS4 (Playing it for trophies this time around)
But I'm going to stop everything for GoW and Bioshock.
