$100 - $200 (software wise) on average 2011 and before....

Usually less than that though....

However in the year 2012 I spent....

-$300 on hardware (GFX card + PSU)
-$100 on PS3 software (FFXIII-2, Ico Collection, TTT2, Red Dead Redemption GOTY, and Devil May Cry 4)
-$50 on other (LOZ Skyward Sword + Pokemon White 2 :O)
-$50 on Steam software (numerous games)

And to think before i talked to you you thought you needed a whole new pc , told you all you needed was a new GPU


Yep! Glad we had that conversation ;p

Told you dude, this gen and pretty much next gen is going to be all about the GPU more then the CPU (Not that a good CPU wont help but GPU will be much more from what i can tell)



No limit -- i would say i probably spend ~$2000 a year on games though that may have to change -- all ready i find i am building up a sizable backlog of games i still need to play or want to replay.



No real limit for me.

Although this year may be the first time I adopt a rule I got from Basil, that is no buy at full price ($60)

That and I may put a general budget of ~$250

Welcome back after your day hiatus!

Probably 200-300 a year. Maybe more if I buy a system.

No. That is how I pay for any gaming at all.

I selected the last option because, even though I'm not loaded with money, I get as many games as I need(want) due to the fact that there aren't a huge amount of them. However, I probably would say $200/6 months (not $400/year because it changes).



2012 Purchase List -
- Theatrrythm (270kr)
- Virtue's Last Reward (270kr)
- Mask of Miracle (350kr)
- Pokémon White (300kr)
- Eshop (300kr)
- 3D Land (400kr)
=

1890kr = about 300 USD

This year will be a bitch, with Wii U purchase, probably Layton, Wind Waker HD, MH3U and Pokémon. I will delay my purchases of other games. So this year about -
4500kr = much more than last year. (710 USD)

Hmm, if I were to do a list like this, I spent about $250 in 2012.

However, some of the games I got were gifts, had discounts, were paid by giftcards or store credit, etc.  

If I were to say how much I WOULD have paid without all of that, it would be well over $400.  I got lots of good deals in 2012.
