There are a lot of reasons why people buy games. I tend to think that most of my reasons are good ones (I am spending hard earned $$$ after all).

It just dawned on me, however, that in the batch of games from my latest purchase, I bought one of the games for the absolute stupidest reason. This is the inspiration for the list and #1 below.

The game might be good or bad, but it's the REASON that I care about. What's the stupidest reason you ever bought a game?
