Poll: Have You Ever Bought a Console Just for One Game?

By Mark Delaney,
Happy Fri- um, whoops. Happy weekend TA! Last week's poll asked about your most anticipated September release. Resoundingly, the winner was Shadow of the Tomb Raider, taking in a massive 47.6% of the votes. Wow. TA does love its story-driven single-player games. Also polling well was Life is Strange 2 (15.31%) and Other (15.59%), which we will assume mostly meant PS4's Spider-Man.

Speaking of Spider-Man, it's the inspiration for this week's poll. It's been a common refrain that some are buying a PS4 just so they can play the game. Such a move isn't unheard of. I'm sure others have done it for various Zelda titles over the years. Personally, I nearly did it with a few Grand Theft Auto sequels. Whether or not you eventually play other games on the console, have you ever bought, or would you ever buy, a console just for one game? Sound off in this week's poll!
