We need an extra option: haven't played it yet.

This is my case as I haven't bought it yet, but will do soon.

Maybe an new option should be added. "Maybe in a few weeks" or something like that. Since many people will wait out the hype that comes after the game releases and wait a month or 2 when the price goes a bit down. Maybe you should add also "I will after the price goes down a bit" option as well or something like that.

Maybe the best would be as @qubit said an option called "I haven't bought it yet, but will do soon"

Want it but can't afford it.
Yeah, besides 60 euros is a bit much. I will wait till it will be 30-35. I waited this long to release I might as well wait a little bit more to buy it. :)

By the time I get new hardware the price will be low :D
Just like I am waiting for 75% steamsale of DB Xenoverse

So its 2 games for 50 more or less :p

Meh.

I'm in a minority but it's way too 'nigga' (I know it's contextual but I fucking hate that language and it's frankly a shitty culture to emulate) and not as pretty as everyone says. Dying Light has far superior eye candy and more fun for me I'm afraid. £30 not well spent for my own tastes.

I'm definitely waiting for a price drop. $60 for a game that has been out for a year and a half already just because it is on a new platform is too much IMO. If they had released it at $30 I would have pre-ordered it the first day pre-orderes were available. And you can say, well the PC version is better than what was available before. Sure, I'll agree, but the PC version is always better and plenty of other games have released the PC version at the same time.

Plus, the PC version is almost all digital distributed, which is saving Rockstar money. Plus, I can't re-sell the PC version, while I can re-sell the console version.

I couldn't even compare the two games, let alone say that dying light is better or more fun game ... and for being prettier, maybe in couple of screenshots.
... also, the whole point is that player has mixed feelings about every culture emulated in the game. It's a GTA game after all, social commentary is strong and always thrown in your face disguised as dark humor.
You got me genuinely surprised to the point that I suspect the seriousness of your statement.

Pretty much this. Only games that even come close to GTA in value (and replay value) are Skyrim in one way and Diablo 3 in another way. Also those seem to be only games in last 5 years that I'm able to play obsessively just like the time when I was a kid.

I'll probably get it after a discount. Not that I think it's too expensive, but by the time I get around to buying/playing it the price will probably be lower.

I see the poll is showing a lot of ppl not happy with the price, and I agree, $60 for a game that's a year old is unfair to ask, especially after all the delays rockstar made us go thru.

However, if you register for green man gaming's VIP club, you can get the game for $46, which is way more palatable:

Hope this helps some of you guys on the fence about getting this game :)

I'm hesitant to buy it, for two reasons:
1. the game is a year and a half old. I've already played it twice, on both PS3 and a friends PS4 copy. not a whole lot new for me.
2. From the game page: "internet connection required for activation, online play, and periodic entitlement verification." so, this game has to periodically phone home, to rockstar's servers that might not be around in three-four years, in order to play? that puts this game is the same realm as uplay games, or any games that require DRM in addition to steam.
$10, tops.

So somebody buys a 65Gb game on disk and they are still forced to connect online to play? Phhhttt, not gunna happen here.
It reminds me of the Xbox fiasco when people found out it had to be connected online all the time so they could keep an eye on people.
