I'm a sucker for Collector's Editions, I admit. My only saving grace is that I'm pretty picky about buying them. It really does depend on what is included, price, how much I love the series, etc. For example, I did buy the Limited Edition for Gears of War 3, but not the Collector's Edition, as I couldn't bring myself to pay $129 for an edition that doesn't even include a soundtrack. (Side note: soundtracks in CEs are very important to me.)

But I am well aware that most of these special editions, especially when you get into the realm of the Game of the Year editions, are mostly for suckers. I admit that I am sometimes one of them. My support group meets on Wednesdays. Next meeting, I'm going to bring this video I found today on Dueling Analogs, because it really does hit on every point about every special edition or GOTY edition in existence. We'll all laugh, say how true it is, and then go finish our preorders for the Diablo III Collector's Edition.



Next question is, how many references to actual Collector's Editions did you catch?
