Do you buy games on or close to release day, or do you wait for cheaper prices?
I always wait for cheaper prices.
At the most I would pay....
$40 for physical Nintendo first party titles
$20 for physical Sony first party titles
$30 for physical third party titles on non-nintendo systems
$20 for physical third party titles on nintendo systems
$25 for digital games (with DLC/Season pass included) on PC
The last time I paid full MSRP was The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild for the WiiU in 2016 for $60
Prior to that it was Bravely Default Collector's Edition for 3DS back in 2013 for $50
And prior to that New Super Mario Bros Wii for the Nintendo Wii back in 2009 for $50
For non-nintendo system/games it was
$50 for Persona 5 OG Steel Book and Final Fantasy XII Zodiac Age Steel book for $50 - both for the PS4 in 2017.
The last time I paid full price for a game on a non-nintendo platform was Final Fantasy XII on PS2 for $50 back in 2006.
Bulk of my PC gaming comes from bundles and steep discounts thanks to Humble, IndieGala, Fanatical, GMG, GamersGate, Gamesplanet, and Amazon - all of which gives me 10-15 games for $1-$12 in some cases.
Bonus question: How much money have you spent on video games in 2020?
2020 has been my most expensive yet in terms of gaming.
