A. $0-$250
B. $250-$500
C. $500-$1000
D. >$1000

Have you found yourself spending more or less over the past few years?

B. Ended up with 57 new games this year for $319.

I've been spending less as my backlog has piled up and the generation has gone on for so long.

More over the past few years, since I now have disposable income.

Easily D.

D. My spending stays fairly constant from year to year. The exception being the 'need' for new hardware.

D this year, but I'm planning on cutting down a lot next year. Partly because I still have to finish all the games I got this year, but also because I bought three consoles so that added a huge chunk to the amount.
As long as the Playstation 4 and next Xbox 360 don't come out this year I should be ok.

B or C, Though sometimes console launch years overlap and it pushes it into the D range.

I try to stay in A. Occasionally I dip into B.

Oh yeah! I also bought my wife a 3DS, so I technically went into the C-range of spending this year.

A, I always buy on sales, so I rarely spend more than $15 on any given game, plus I buy them often with credits ECt... S I get probably 30 games a year, but spend less than $200 overall.

C. This year. I bought a DS and damn near every Pokemon game made since Blue/Red lol That was like a third of my spending. My goal is to spend less than $300 or $400 next year.

No idea.
I get a ton of games on release date, but I usually trade them in and put them towards another new game. I rarely pay more than $30 for a pre ordered game.

B most times,if more of the popular titles come out like 2013 then it'll be C.

usually C, but this year D as I brought a PSP and a bunch of games that remain unopened. Will use it on my trip to Vegas this summer.

D, especially with all the limited editions these days.

A or B. I never buy games @ $60. Well almost never.

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 27, 2012 2:14:14 PM PST
I think that's the best strategy. Anymore, it seems like brand new $60 games are $30-$40 in a matter of months if not weeks.

A. Hey I'm not that bad, I ususally convince girls to buy games for me though, so I usually only spend 2-3 games out of pocket a year.

Probably C most years, but this year was definitely D.

The upper end of B.

D. Easily. In fact I'd be ashamed to know exactly how much I spend per year on games, but it's quite far into D territory.

Usually C, but this year went into D because of Wii U.
