    Since this is my only current expense that is not under "bills", about 500 I would say it is about right.

    i voted 100-200
    used to be more but the amount of quality game releases that i play has gone down dramatically & i refuse to pay40 -50 a game then pay another $100+ a year to play it - plus get all the probs associated with most/all online games.
    i do love gw tho:) play it all the time.

    I spend upwords of 800+ per year. I tend to buy them new, beat them in a few days, and sell them off for around $10 less than I paid to friends who simply wait for me to get it first.

    heck sitting here at my desk right now is about 200 PC games, 30 PS2, 130 PSX, 65 SNES, 100+ NES, 50 GameBoy, 40+ Sega/Sega CD/32X/et al., and the countless others. Yes all but the PC/PS2 games are in boxes stacked up next to my desk.

    I need a life..

    I have a rediculous amount of Xbox games, especially since I've been working at EB.

    Depends but I went for the 101-200 options because I buy about 4 games a year but they have to be good ones with lots of playability fr me to consider buying, I won't buy something that will give me 10hrs of gameplay and that I'll never pick up again, but I will buy games like Oblivion and Med Total War II because I know I'll play them for 100's of hours

    wierd thing about this poll is that different numbers mean different amounts for each country. like 500 au in games would be like 200-250 US and god knows what in pounds or euros :duh:

    It is hard to determine the amount spent per ├┐ear, but I would say it is a lot more than I would even know.:D

    I only buy a handful of games a year. No more than a few hundred dollars worth.

    I honestly don't know exactly. I don't keep track. I try to wait until prices get low before buying but sometimes I yield and buy the full price at release.

    This year, I think I bought 4 Xbox 360 games, 1 PS3 game, 4 Pc games. It probably cost me around $200 CAD.

    I also rented games. It cost about $12 CAD for three days. I probably rented about 5 games in the year, for a total of about $60 CAD.

    Renting is not cheap. I wonder how much money goes back in the pockets of the game developpers/publishers.

    Besides the actual game purchases I'd also have some mmo suscription going.
    I'd say console owners spend the most overall.

    If I include the subscription costs then I just scrape over the line for about $500.
