    I keep my receipts and I average just under 2000 a year in parts, computer upgrades, and games...

    Realize that I write for SimHQ, along with a couple of guess articles on other sites... I buy almost every type of computer game, especially land and armor based games to play then write about them, and there are quite a few that I play for only a few days then done... like the recent releases of GUN, The Movies, and Call of Duty 2.

    (I currently have about 80 games in my closet, I'd say 20 plus are from this year... I use to "trade in" at EB, but they just recently stopped doing that for PC games.)

    and those don't count games for my X-box (which is only about 6 a year), and my PSP, only about 6 of those also. lol

    and next year, February, I should be getting the Xbox 360 (600 bucks package), along with about 8 games planned, lol.

    Whats funny, and a better question... how much do you play a week...all those games I really only get about 10 hrs of gameplay a week... of course thats because I work nights, and only sleep 2 to 4 hrs a day, lol...really. ;)

      I was easily in the $800+ range as well. I buy almost all of the new games when they come out so TG can be prepped if we need to run a server. And I generally have to update my hardware to stay in pace with the new game releases. Much like you, Magnum, I have between 80-100 games sitting on my shelf and a variety of PS2 games.

      I've also got an N64 and Dreamcast laying around as well.

            Wow, i feel pathetic pushing that $800+ button. Hmm what have I bought this year? I bought a Saitek x52, $130, burnout 4 plus other games for xbox $300, a new computer $1300, G5 Laser Mouse $80, Zboard $50, and 2 new LCD's ($800) to top it off. Lol thats $2660 in total. And in 4 days and 4 hours, i will be dropping $530 on a Xbox 360, and $3499 on a sony HDR-FX1. I feel oh so pathetic. So around $7000 this year, yes this is a very expensive year.

                I run the $800 range as well, although I usually buy it, try it, and try to recoup what I can via half.com or craig's list.

                That leaves 5 or 6 core games that I still have. :icon14:

                  Well, I had to do the $800 + thing. I buy games all the time. Brand New games. If theres a collectors Edition available, I buy that.

                  Such a sucker for the extra trinkets.

                  The only reason I wanted the EverQuest2 Collectors Edition was the collectors coin inside. And I don't even collect coins. I don't even play the game. But the coin is still on my desk.

                  I got the City of Villains collectors Edition, not for the 10 trading cards inside, not for the 7 little plastic people that apparently are for some kind of board game. Not for the Art book. But because it was the collectors edition. Oh and I can wear this helmet that only people who bought the CE can wear. However I don't wear it.

                  I was angry when I found out that there would not be a Collectors Edition of Black and White 2 released in the US. Only in Europe. That Angered me.

                  One CE I am really glad I purchased though, World of Warcraft. I <3 my Mini Diablo

                      Since I found TG my game spending has gone through the roof. I want to try everygame that is offered here. I am well over $800+ if I consider the console games too. :icon_eek:

                        My vote was really for just this years spending.

                        $300 on new monitor
                        $200 on new video card
                        $100 on new keyboard/mouse
                        $50 on new harddrive
                        $250 + on games and other random things

                        I wish I had the money to spend $800 plus every year.

                            Wow, you guys have the bucks, I guess!

                            Let's see, major computer upgrade every 3 years or so: $900

                            Two or three games a year: $150

                            Monthly payments to TacticalGamer: $100

                            Dang, that's $550! I had never really added it up before... That's more than I thought it would be.
