My life is dictated by a set of defined rules. Here are three:

  1. Wait a year after a console is released before deciding to buy it or not.
  2. Wait a week after a game is released before deciding to buy it or not.
  3. Never ever pre-order a game and certainly not a console. Even if it’s for free. Period.

I know that if everyone adopted these rules, consoles would die out, but most people are risk-takers when compared to me. I let them sacrifice their money and risk disappointment for my benefit. Seems fine.
