Under my current records, $611. At least $150 went towards games that I didn't particularly enjoy or like. Overall, it's equivalent to two weeks worth of pay for me.

All of the games were purchased on either Steam, Green Man Gaming, or Amazon Digital. This marks the first year in which I haven't purchased a single physical game.

I'm waiting until November 18th I will get a new system and purchase more games then.

The games I'm going to get are: Dishonored, New Super Mario Bros. U, Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge, Assassin's Creed III (probably), I will get The Witcher 2 on the Steam Holiday Sale I missed out on it during the Summer Sale. Edit* I'm also getting Crashmo for the 3DS eShop and Paper Mario Sticker Star.

I always have money for games. I did regret buying a lot of indie games on sale, though. But, I only have two more purchases to make this year (Medal of Honor: Warfighter, Dishonored), and I doubt I'll be getting anything during the Steam Christmas sale.

The only full priced games I got this year are Max Payne 3, Darksiders 2 and RE6. I did get a bunch of old games on Ebay for cheap, so I say around $250-300.

$7000 is rather high.

If I were to only buy $60 games I'd be able to buy 116 games with $7000.

Even if I had $10 million I still don't think I'd spend that much money on games. It's just too many games for me to beat.

Not even close to what I have spent previous years. I'd guess I've spent about $200 this year on games. Previous years I have spent around $1000. I haven't paid $60 for a game yet this year which is a huge change from previous years where I would buy everything day one

Even though I find most of my video games for less than $5, I've probably spent near $900 this year on video games alone. You can imagine how many games I've amased at that price lol

I count games + anything strictly gaming, like a console or console accessories. PC parts I usually don't count.

I bought like 6 games this year... So far.

  • Borderlands 2 (PC) - £25
  • Dark Souls (PC) - £30
  • Counter Strike GO (PC) - £15
  • Sleeping Dogs (PC) - £25
  • Max Payne 3 - £20
  • Mass Effect 3 - £25

Still need to get:

  • Need for Speed Most Wanted (PC) - £30
  • FarCry 3 (PC) - £25
  • Dishonoured (PC) - £25
  • Guild Wars 2 (PC) - £40

SPENT: £140... £260 in total once the other games I want are out.

$7000? WTF!

Well, the reason is I use my PC for things other than gaming. My PS3 is strictly gaming + Amazon Instant Video.

But like I said the purpose of building this PC was only to play PC games, my laptop can do anything a normal PC can do. I spent around 1000 euros just to play PC games. I spent 1000 euros on gaming! :p

Well in that case I guess I spent around £1400 on games. And I plan on getting a new monitor by the end of the year so that £1400 will easily turn into £2000. It's between the Asus 27" Proart, Samsung 27" 850D PLS and Dell U2713HM. I'm leaning towards the Samsung because it has less IPS glow and lower input lag than the other two.

Probably between $600 - $700.
The year isn't even over yet, so there's definitely more to come. Might be picking up a new video card soon as well.

When you get married your wife becomes your wallet and your wallet becomes the place where you keep your gym card that you never use... :(
