I don't really buy many games anymore. I find myself buying more utilities than games because you really need some of them to play.
(Imagine going 3 weeks with an rpg u just bought with NO MEMORY CARD)
My brother likes to download them off the internet before I get a chance to buy the game
Usually, my parents/brothers buy games and i just play their games.
Otherwise, I can play a game for a long time (starcraft)

minus the quarters, and the games, consoles, etc ive gotten as gifts, id say its probably around $15000-20000. now add the price of all the games and all that ive gotten as gifts, it would probably be double, or even triple that.

I have over 100 original Dreamcast games, some of them rare. all of that plus my consoles probably cost me around £4000 (yes my name and my sig I drew don't lie )
I have a Gamecube with 10 games which has set me back about £500
GBA plus flashcart plus 20 or so games another £500
Xbox plus 20+ games £800
Sega Nomad + Megadrive plus 80 games £600-700 maybe
Gameboy Mono & Gameboy Color plus 48 games £1200
PC games (not including the PC) around £2000
Game Gear plus ~50 games £700
Sega Saturn + 15 games £400
Nintendo 64 + 30 games £500
SNES + 30 or so games £450
Wonderswan + 5 games £80
Amiga 500+ with over 600 games £200 yeah I pirated most of them
Playstation with 30 or so originals £500
So I add up all those approximations and I get around £13500 which is $20000 or so. I probably missed stuff out too.
When I look at it like that it does seem A LOT but you know what? It was all totally worth it

10 games a year average
$30 a game average
10 games x 25 years = 250 games (sounds about right)
250 games x $30 = $7500
This does not inlude systems (2600, Intellivision, Colecovision, 5200, C64, C128, Amiga, 7800, Nintendo, Master system, SNES, Sega, 32x, Sega CD, 3DO, PSX, N64, N64 Again, First PC, Second PC, Third PC. Even at an average of $300 a system this would equal $6600, and thats way low, cause my last pc put me out $3800 alone.
I guess it is around $15000 - to $20000 over the last 25 years. WOW...thanks for ruining my day lol
