So here we are, April is almost upon us which will mark five months since I purchased my last game on Xbox One, AC Origins.

While I also got NBA 2k18, WWE 2k18, and Shadows of War around the same time, I feel like it’s been ages since I felt the need to buy a new game, and I legitimately don’t see a new release on the horizon that gives me any kind of hope.

While I recognize Far Cry 5 comes out on Tuesday, I’ve never finished a Far Cry game, and don’t plan on buying a new one. I can honestly say that there really isn’t anything with a definitive release date upcoming until Madden that I would even consider buying.

So I thought I’d throw the question out there. How long was the longest time between game purchases for you? And what was the reason?

Maybe a month? Even when there are no new releases I want right away,. I still have tons of older games I want for my collection. I just got Doom and Batman Arkham Knight today in the mail, my next new release will prolly be Conan

I don't buy games new, either by sales digitally or second hand physical.

The last game I got was Human Fall Flat, on sale. But have been playing other things so far.

idk depends on what alls been coming out. in the 360 era went about 2 years since I sold my 360 to focus on school. The xbox one era probably 3 or 4 months at most.
