I prefer buying brand new copies as I usually intend to keep them after completing them. I only buy second-hand games if I can't find them as brand new - for example older games like Pokemon Black or Pokemon Platinum.
Brand new if I'm happy to pay full price for them, if I don't consider them worth the full price (e.g. a FIFA game), I'll buy pre-owned
Brand new if it has just come out and i wanna play it rn
Mostly because I play on the Xbox not pc

Cheap key sites and sales for PC games, pre-owned for the 3DS. Although the margins on 3DS games seem to be really small compared to buying new, so something I'll just buy new to save the hassle of waiting for an eBay seller to post.
I play on PC so it's all digital downloads. When I used to buy for consoles, though, pre-owned, if it doesn't work properly then you can take it back. If it does work properly then it will continue to do so if you look after it.
Buy everything digitally from key sites or wait for sales etc.
Never am I ever paying AAA prices for a game again... except WoW because well hashtag addicted.
Whichever is cheapest. So long as it works fine, it makes no difference whatsoever to me if someone else has used the disk before me.
Brand new, although £30 will always be my max. So I tend to always to wait till prices come down, PC/PS4 come down quickly. Nintendo always price me out, so never buy their hardware.
I like to complete my games.
If there is a game that I really would like to get, then I try and find a used one, as they will be cheaper, and I can just delete any other saved data on it
I haven't bought a physical game for about 5 years.
Xbox 1 and pc is all digital for me, except for my copies of for honor and Overwatch which into free new when I brought my Xbox 1.
Not often in the past five+ years, it's waste of dosh. I'll buy a new game if I need DLC code, i.e Destiny taken king. It's shocking thinking back to all my 40 squids spent on new games during the 1990s. There was none of this store games for sale under £5, you'd consider it fortunate at £20-25 during price drops.
