Games on release day


King Bowser
What games have you bought on release day?

So far these are the games/consoles I've gotten from day 1.
  • 3DS
  • Sonic Generations (I was lucky enough to get it the day before it was released)
  • Super Mario 3D Land
  • Mario Kart 7
  • Minecraft 360
I also got Super Mario Galaxy 2 two days after release.
If the 3DS Ambassador games count, then this list would have 26 entries.
I get most of the games I really want on release date (which is mainly mario games), but I can wait for some other series for christmas. I also got my 3DS the day it came out, along with my DSi.

I'm pretty sure the only game I've ever gotten on release day was Brawl.

I preordered it. My friend simply asked his father to go at 6 o-clock in the morning and get it.
But he has the best luck so I shouldn't have been surprised that he got Brawl anyway.

Mario Kart Wii, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Super Mario Galaxy 2 and WarioWare: D.I.Y. are the only ones come to mind. I got the DS Lite on its release date.

A launch buyer of Neverdead? I thought they were merely a scary urban legend.

Let's see... I bought Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Punch-Out!! on release day. Other than that, I can't think of any other game I've bought on release day, either because I wasn't THAT invested in them or that I was too busy to actually get them on release day.

Mega Man 9 and Mega Man 10 are the only games that I remember purchasing on the exact same day as their release.
