i only buy one game at a time so Ive been using the same 70 odd dollars for the last few years.

Usually I don't think I spend more than $300-$400 in a given year, but not because I have any limit. In a year like this, with so many good games coming out and possibly PS4, I may spend twice as much.



No troll is too much for me to handle. I rehabilitate trolls, I train people. I am the Troll Whisperer.

i don't keep track but i'd guess in the $500 to $700 a year range. more in a year of new hardware of course.



Depends if a new console I want is coming out that year, but without that extra cost I would say 300-400.

No limit, but usually spend around US$2000 per year I would guess? Then again a $60 game can easily retail for $80-100 equivalent in Japan.

You and me both.  I probably have over 15 or so games I have yet to start or finish.



Around the Network

It depends on the year. Last year, I think I bought...

Xenoblade @ 50 dollars
Kid Icarus Uprising @ 33
Theatrythm @ 33
Mario Tennis @ 33
Pokemon Black V 2 @28
NSMB 2 @ 40
Super Paper Mario @ 40
Mass Effect 3 @ 50
PS All Stars x 3 @ $21
PS All Stars x 2 traded in @ -40
3DS XL @ 200
Wii U @ 350
NSMB Wii U @ 50
Zombi U @ 50
Traded in buttload of games @-300

I also bought a PS3 with PSAll-Stars... But I returned the system within 30 days. Got three copies of the game for 7 bucks each (don't ask) and traded 2 in for 20 each. And I bought a Vita for 120 and Gravity Rush for 40, but then sold them both back for 140, so I lost 20 on that...

All said and done I spent around 650 dollars. Not bad considering that a lot of that was due to the Wii U. I could have probably done without the 3DS XL, but w/e. Gaming's my main hobby so I'm OK with that.

Add me to this list. All someone needs to do is look at my steam list and see how many games i have yet to even start never mind finish x_x

Now that's quite the nice and detailed list! (Curious on how you sold those 3 copies for $20 but I shall not pry further)

I always tell myself that I'm gonna complete certain games, so I can cut down on the ones I need to play.  But, that never happens.



6.99$ every year is my max.
