Ugh I guess my calculations were slighlty off



"Quagmire, are you the type of guy who takes 'no' for an answer ?"

PSN ID: skmblake | Feel free to add me

Too much



£0



Don't know to track physicals, so I'm guessing around ~1100 BRL on physical PS4 games (I've got 13 games I think)

According to my email I've bought only 5 Switch games this year, 672 BRL

On Playstation store 1616 BRL, from 23 purchases, some of them were from more than 1 game (ex, Kingdom Hearts collection more than 10 games). Some of them were DLC, or expansion packs

On Steam 583 BRL from 21 purchases (some of them with more than one game, I'm guessing around 40 games counting the ones I've bought as gifts)

Nintendo Switch online membership 100 BRL, PS Plus membership 130 BRL I think

~4200 BRL ~= 662 euros

Edit: This is far more than I was anticipating, I'm depressed now. I've spent over a month wage just with games this year



Around the Network

Around 500 € (incl. GP Ultimate and NSO).

I buy every point & click adventure game at initial price to support the developers (e.g. Beyond a Steel Sky or Leisure Suit Larry - Wet Dreams Don‘t Dry for 39.99 € each on Xbox).

I've never spent less and yet played just as much as in any other year thanks to Game Pass (and MS Rewards).

Spent 172€ in 2021.



One hundred and one Canadian Pesos.



Your numbers are insane, Conina.

I spent 77.49€ in 15 games 2021, plus another 4.99€ in a game for a gift.



Please excuse my bad English.

Currently gaming on a PC with an i5-4670k@stock (for now), 16Gb RAM 1600 MHz and a GTX 1070

Steam / Live / NNID : jonxiquet    Add me if you want, but I'm a single player gamer.

I had a lot of disposable income in 2021 due to a fruitful year (promotions, wage increases, gift cards/certs, streaming, and the stimulus packages).

It was the first time since 2018 since I've been in the black (Was in the red due to $40,000+ worth of purchases on furniture for my new house I built in 2018 - all that got paid for the end of 2021).

I dont think I'll be spending this much or more than 2021 purchases in the future. It'll probably be a while before I get this number of stuff again since I got pretty much all the games I wanted to get on PS4, Switch, PC or iOS, etc and I dont like paying too much for one single game (which most are still new).
