I voted for "No, I don't think I've ever even bought a game on the day it launched". The best I've done was the week of release.

I'm not sure if I regret picking the second option. The latest new game that I purchased was SC6 and I got it the day before the official release date, not at midnight.

Yes and I plan to go tomorrow night for Smash.
I don't do it too often, last time might have actually been Smash Wii U.
I might go for Kingdom Hearts III as well.

I only buy games when they are at least 50% off, so unless a game is launched at 50% off on Steam (rare, but it happens, especially in bundles), I'd never buy on day 1.

I was there for halo 2. The gamestop was running a super tight ship; I was in a huge line but only for about 10 minutes

Where's the option for "No, but I've preordered games a month early to get them by mail on launch day"?
