I pre-order everything, even games I don't want. It's the only way we send the "don't preorder!" pinworms back into the anus they crawled out of - they're supposed to be nocturnal.
Pre-ordering also sends the developer the reassurance "the trailer looked good, take all the time you need and dont feel rushed - the community has your back. We're family now, we're in this together ❤️".
