We all end up lamenting. fomo and buyer's remorse comes for us all.I was effectively destitute for 1.5 years at one point and I found how much cheaper it was to simply buy things when I was going to play them that very day, sales be damned. I’ve not completely gotten rid of that attitude but I do buy stuff I don’t see coming to Gamepass and end up not playing it at times.If you really want to save money, ignore the sales and just click “Buy” when you’re ready to play it. Bonus that you’ll usually get the version with all the DLC for a pittance too. Even if it’s a $60 game most of our limiting factors is time, you’ll save money.That sounds really expensive, I rather buy AC odyssey ultimate for £14.99 than for £79.99 or the entire Lego Marvel Collection for £12.49 instead of £49.99.Or better yet, pause on buying and finish my backlog pile and hopefully by the time I even get to half the pile, most of the games on my wishlist will have far better discounts. Frankly, I blame the microtransactions for my backlogs, can't finish as many games on time these days because they are made to be extra grindy so you can buy shortcuts. I remember when games took standard 9-20 hours to complete now you end up spending 60-80 hours on an Assassin's Creed game unless you have buy timesavers consumables.
