Is it ever a factor for you when you buy a PC game to support a good publisher?

......and they'll glady pay the full 60 to fully show their full financial support to this publisher and to hopefully get this pc game publisher to make more games like this when there is no guarantee that another game or sequel will get made.

The only thing that will get me to drop $60 is if I want to play a game right then and there in which case I have no problem doing it. If I want to support a studio (I can't think of a single publisher I'd want to support) I like that made/ported a game I'm not especially interested in I might buy it on sale at some point. It's usually only when a company that generally sticks to consoles dips their toes into PC ports with a game I've already played, though these kinds of ports are rarely $60 to begin with.
Every time I try to go where I really wanna be it's already where I am, 'cuz I'm already there

I do that sometimes.

I bought Resident Evil 7 at full price just to support Capcom (believe it or not! :p), but only played it 8 or so months later.

I also bought Tales of Zestiria and Tales of Berseria at full price to support Bamco (well, more like supporting PC released of their games), even though I had a huge backlog at the time.

I've bought a few games from developers and publishers that I know are good. I rarely buy at launch but in the case of VR I have to make sure that they keep supporting VR. Latest example was buying the serious Sam vr games and the Talos principle vr.

Not really. And it's not because I don't want to support them. It's because I don't think things like this mean a damn to anyone but the person doing it unless there's a larger scale campaign behind it. If it's just one person doing what they personally feel is right for them, that's the only reason to do it. It won't affect the machine one bit.

I do it, but I hardly play AAA games. I do it to any publisher I want to support, like SCS.

No.

Only factor is interest in the game. I'm more of a wait for sales guy though, so regardless of the publisher/developer, I usually won't be paying full price. (I'd only pay full price if I just really want to play at release.)

never really a factor but i already know i'm supporting a publisher to the best of my ability by buying their games on PC regardless if it's $5 or $60 since they receive the largest cut of a sale after fees compared to consoles.

there was some article from pcgamer i think it was that broke down how some publisher could launch a game for $20 on PC and would be forced to launch at a higher price on console in order to earn the same amount per unit sold.

I don't mind paying $60. When I wanna play a game, I wanna play a game. I don't want to wait for who knows how long for it to go on sale. And I think buying a game because its a "good deal" rather than because you want to play it is not a healthy mindset
