On your scale somewhere between two to three hundred dollars per year. I usually make a purchase once every two to three months, and not always at full retail prices. I actually tend to come in at the low end of the range, because the summer months are a waste land. Which usually end up with me picking up old used games on the cheap in place of new games at full retail price. It is actually quite rare for me to buy more then three new releases in any given year.

The obvious exception being years when new platforms are launched, but I have a bigger entertainment budget that gaming is part of. So I buy fewer movies, or go out a bit less often to divert more cash into my gaming budget. This year looks to be pretty expensive. So I have already started to look for ways to cut costs. I hope to have more then enough saved up for a new console before the end of the year.

Man some people with over $1000 to spend on games alone.
I wonder what you else you guys do for fun.

I've never had any limits. I actually buy too many games... then they just sit there, waiting, calling for me...

Hmm maybe I should change the title to "How much you spend on gaming".

sky is the limit, but at the same time, I'm still a budget shopper, I have infinite will power to wait for things to hit dirt cheap.

Hmm, yeah. I just randomly buy games when I have money. It's a quite a bad thing...

I don't know, does building a PC or updating them count? cause that shit hits into the thousands easily lol.....



I'm always looking for a good bargain unless it's a game I'm dying to play.
