How much have you payed in all for video games?

Recommended Posts

I myself have payed close to $4,000. I bought the Nintendo with 10 games, Super Nintendo with 8 games, Nintendo 64 with 15 games, and GameBoy Color with 3 games. Last but not least I got a Dreamcast with 2 games.

 

How much have you payed, (plus you have to add all the extra controllers + memory cards). :twisted::lol:

Not counting the PC Games. I know i´ve spent alot of money...ugg not me but my parents.. :twisted:

i average around 200-500 dollars or so.

 

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 :twisted:

 

Usually, my parents/brothers buy games and i just play their games.

 

Otherwise, I can play a game for a long time (starcraft)

if i would have to be as detailed as solidius, then i would be here a VERY long time. especially if i have to enclude all the quarters ive spent at the arcade aswell. :(

 

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. :wink:

A heck of a lot.

 

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 :wink: )

 

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 ;)

Good question, I have never really tjhought about it. I have been playing ganes for about 25 years:

 

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 :roll: lol
