Never buy a game on release day. Wait until it's proven good or turned cheap.

This the best.

What is awesome is just playing games 5-15 years old. They're so cheap (or free). And it's not like the games are any worse than they day they came out!

No 4K.

Most old games you can definitely play in 4K (often even better than modern games since they're not as graphically intensive; for example I play Thief 2 at 4k but have to turn the settings down to like 2k, sometimes even 1080p, for for example Black Mesa). Problem is the models and textures, if that bothers you.

Me too. I remember a time when I would get excited about new games and buy them as soon as they were released, or, and I trust that you will keep this a secret between us, even pre-order. Now I wait until they've been out a while and go on sale.

Much better than overpaying for a broken game. If games were playable when they were released that would at least be a step in the right direction.
