Forums - Gaming Discussion - The how much money I spend on gaming in 2014 thread

This January was a cheap month for me:

WiiU: Couldn't say no to €21.50 for Bayonetta 2 and €9.99 each for the Wii-games DKC:R and Metroid Prime Trilogy.

PlayStation: Costume Quest 2 (Flash-Sale) and Grim Fandango Remastered (Cross-buy).

PC: Life is Strange and some cheap indie bundles

iOS: Flockers (love it, best Lemmings clone ever!)

@Conina You seem very organised with that. :)

I kind of got lazy/forgot to post the last two months. The final tally ended up being  $565 CAD for 2014. 

As for Jan 2015: Metroid Prime Trilogy: $12.50

This year i've put a limit to buy maximum of 7 games. I guess getting 3 games in the trilogy acts as bit of a loophole. :P

Are we also doing 2015?

Captain Toad - 33
Guacamelee! - 5.6
SteamWorld Dig - 3.6
Sword & Soldiers - 3
Teslagrad - 6
Metroid Prime Trilogy - 10

61 euros so far, uh oh, that's 20eur more than last year.

I spend 2090€ on gaming in 2014, which would equal to approximately 2360$ as of right now.
And my total spending of 2015 so far is about 340€ (January only lol), which would equal to 385$.
But i expect the total money spend on gaming this year will be a lot lower than last year.

First quartal... not bad so far, only 70 € per month.

But some more expensive months are coming (GTA5 PC, The Witcher 3, Batman: Arkham Knight, Summer Steam Sale)
