Introduce the topic of no easy pre order and explain why it’s a hot topic right now
No easy pre order is a hot topic at the moment because people are very much in need of getting something for free or with minimal effort, but in order to do so, they have to jump through hoops. They might be forced to use a VPN or create multiple fake accounts just to get the “freebie”. We are in the age of the freebie, and many are willing to go to great lengths to get it. The hype behind no easy pre order is really big right now.
People are also flocking to sites that claim to have deals on no easy pre order. This is not always the case. Most of the time, these “deal” sites are really just an under the table discount for paying customers. Websites that claim that they give away free no easy pre orders are outright scams. There is no such thing as a website that gives away free stuff without you giving them money in return, and people need to realize this before it’s too late.
Share your own personal experiences with pre ordering games
No easy pre order is something that has been a major pain for me. The last time I pre orderd a game, even before I was an editor, it took me hours to get the game I wanted. My university had just started selling physical games from the grocery store, and most of my local ones that sold games were sold out or close to it. But still, I managed to find a place called Best Buy that was about 5 minutes away from my house where they had a ton of pre-orders for the upcoming game. It took me a while, but I managed to get everything pre ordered that I wanted in a very timely manner. It was very nice. I don’t know how much of it was because the pre order and how much of it was because I had a car that could drive me there, but it worked for me. Good thing I had an old gamer to ask about games all the time when we were bored at my house before!
Which brings me to also talk about the game: Hyrule Warriors .
I pre ordered this game a very long time ago without actually knowing very well what I was getting. There were so many reasons to do it besides the fact that other people had gotten good things to say about it on youtube and how it looked like an absolute blast. Which you can see for yourself:
I was impressed due to how open the game is and because of its art style. Almost everything looked super stylized, and the characters were so different from each other. In addition, when I was pre-ordering it I had a lot of time to play it because my current job didn’t occupy nearly as much time as it does now. I even have time for a few minutes of sleep!
Discuss the pros and cons of pre ordering games
I find that there are many pros and cons to pre ordering. The pros are that if you’re really into the game, you can save a lot of money on it by pre ordering it. I’d say this is the biggest pro. Also, it is convenient to do because you don’t have to worry about paying extra for the game or waiting in line when the game’s release date. The cons are that you have to wait long hours in line, and I mean really long hours. Also, a lot of times the pre order incentive is not enough for the person who pre ordered it to get excited about the game but then you wonder why they don’t show any stalker face on their social media account when they get it. All in all, it is your choice if you want to pre order a game or not.

Offer advice on how to make the most informed decision when it comes to pre ordering games
My advice is to not bother pre ordering a game that’s not exclusive, or is on a very recent console. I don’t really recommend using the console play list to pre order games because who knows if it will still be available for that console next year. What’s more, there are games that are leaked before their release date and many people try to get them early so they can get the game for cheap, but most of those games don’t last for long because people find out about it and then it becomes un-available after a week. It’s better to wait for the game to be available on a different console.
If you’re looking to pre order, don’t preorder a game that isn’t exclusive – it’s not worth the risk. If you do want to preorder a game that isn’t exclusive, then try and get on the pre ordering list as soon as possible. If you can’t get on the list on day one, then try and get on within 2 weeks because most stores will sell out in that time.
Another thing about pre ordering is to know when your local shops are going to start selling the game. This is sometimes a surprise to people who pre order and then find out that the game isn’t in their store at all. Be sure to check your local shop’s pre ordering schedule, or look online for a list of retailers selling the game and the time that they will start selling it.
Something else to remember is that you can’t cancel your pre orders once they’re confirmed. So you have no option to change your mind because it’s already confirmed. If you don’t want to order a game, or if you’re having second thoughts, then you can cancel it before it’s confirmed but after that, you can’t.
Summarize your thoughts on the matter and give your final verdict
No easy pre order is something that takes place when you don’t have to go through a lot of hassle to get something. It’s not like you’re going to be wasting your time, because the stores might not sell a copy of the game and you’ll still get one anyway. Also, when the review copies are released, and the pre orders are delivered just at the right time, I find that it makes things very convenient for those who really want it. The only thing is that they have to wait a bit, but at least there are no big problems when you buy the game. I doubt that you’ll regret pre ordering something when you’re into it and when the time comes, you’ll be excited to get it. I think that calling a pre order “no easy pre order” could mean that it requires some work, maybe something you have to do by yourself. But in the end you get what you want and it’s worth it. The only problem is waiting, but as I said before, I don’t mind waiting compared to not having a copy of the game at all. Therefore, this pre order isn’t “no easy pre order” (the definition), but it’s just OK. I’ll just have to wait for a little longer.
