Has a demo ever convinced you to buy a game?

Or perhaps kept you from buying a game you planned on getting?

Now that you mention it only one demo convinced me to but the game; Call of Duty 2. I played the demo on the 360 just before the console came out and feel in love with CoD. I played that demo so many times. :P other than that a demo hasn't convinced me I need to run out and get whatever game. there have been a few instantiates where a demo has made me think twice about getting the game, then again I don't play many demos

Actually, I bought The Force Unleashed after playing the demo. Before that I had absolutely no interest in the game, but after playing it, I figured it was fun enough to buy. But that is literally the only time I can think a demo has ever been the deciding factor to buying a game for me

Condemned 2 is my most recent purchase after the demo. I just finally picked it up at Best Buy this past week for $9.99.

I actually bought Pure on a leap of faith since I was aware that Blackrock was behind that game and I was not disappointed.

I can't think of a time where a demo has swayed me towards buying a game, but if I already have confidence in the game and the demo turns out horrible it will sway me towards not buying the game.

The first game I went out and bought after playing the Demo was Bioshock. I knew it had gotten fantastic reviews but I was never really into the horror genre. The demo was simply amazing though. It is such a great game.

I actually havn't played the Fear 2 demo yet (not a Quore subscriber), but I have seen a lot of footage of the game and I am really looking foreward to it. It looks like a good mix of shooter and horror. I'm glad to see you liked it.

Metal Gear Solid 4 was another one for me. All the stuff about the hour long cut scenes scared me off for a while, but playing the demo so fun I restarted it when I finished and played it again ...and then went out and bought the game.

I was going to buy that game but then the demo put me off it. I just didn't like the game play that much.

Pure got me to get the game. Countless times though the demo has made me not get a game. I am glad too.

honestly, a demo has never convinced me to buy a game, so far, but after playing the WWE Smackdown vs Raw 2009 demo, I might buy that game.
