when you preorder rdr2 for pc on the rockstar launcher you can pick two other games in their store to get for free and I picked max payne 3 which I already have on steam and the rockstar launcher already recognized, and which I also had already had on ps3 before, just so I could have a version of max payne 3 to play privately without adding to the public steam record of my somehow 245 hours in the game, more than my time in left 4 dead 2 or payday 2, games actually designed around replayability

Truly the only way to get to the maximum amount of payne

I’ve bought over 7 copies of Dissidia NT, 6 or so copies of Gundam VS, and over 15 copies of Umbrella Corps. Those Umbrella Corps still count, unlike the 20 copies of Clan of Champions, because I wasn’t able to successfully gift most of them away.

Imagine that. People saying no to a free video game.

One person who did play Umbrella Corps with me was @Godamn_Milkman, who bought his own copy. We played for around 5 minutes before he said something like “Sorry, company/my girlfriend suddenly came over so I gotta quit.”

We never played again.

Cave Story Wiiware

Cave Story DSi (which is no longer available for purchase, bc it got replaced by the 3DSware version so technically it’s like, a Rare Eshop Download)

I think I’ve bought Alex Kidd in Miracle World three times now, on top of the version that was built into the Master System II

I’ve bought so many copies of Mega Man II at this point.

It doesn’t count when you get the game a few times in bundles or compulsively download freebies from various services, right?

I bought Far Cry 2 twice, on the 360. I might pick it up on Steam some day.

I have bought Super Mario Bros. 3 on every platform Nintendo has allowed it

I bought extra copies of both Persona 3 and Nocturne so I had one to lend out, which is insane looking back

If you count anniversary collections, I own each Mega Man four to eight times probably

I keep buying Okami on different platforms and not playing it (Wii (the first and only time I got anywhere with it), PS2, PS3, Switch)

I have piles of Super Mario Bros largely because I bought it once on gameboy, once on NES, and then I kept being in circumstances where buying it on NES was mandatory to get something else, like a pile of other NES games, or a controller in a bag with a Mario Bros cartridge.

I also have a ton of SMB and SMB/Duck Hunt because I bought a bunch of NES collections on eBay back in the day and those are games that are in everybody’s old collections.
