    For a Wii I went to Target at 5am for disappointment, then at midnight a few days later and got it. My friend and I went to the Brawl midnight launch and both lost in the second round, I was 3rd in line and he was 4th. We had 30 minutes left from the end of the tournament to midnight so we watched "Make Love, Not Warcraft" on my iPod

    Most of what I preorder isn't hyped enough to have lines. Plus the fact that I tend to pick them up the day or so aftwer the initial release tends to help too.

    None. Maybe if I start playing WOW again and the expansion comes out, I will go to a few stores to look for it, but nothing that I'd wait in line for.

    I waited in a line for the 360 and Halo 3. I'm not going to bother preordering anything for a while, as I could just pick it up on lunch if I'm at work.

    I doubt there'll be an opportunity, but I'd line up for Mirror's Edge.

    I MAY wait in line for RE5 but really doubt it. I'll just pre order everything else and get it the next day. The way I see it, unless I can stay home the next day there really is no point in getting a game at midnight if I need to go to work or school since it will be torture waiting to get home.
