Tell GR: Do You Spend More or Less Money on Gaming?

Posted on Friday, August 8 @ 14:30:00 Eastern by


The majority of my friends and some of my colleagues in the industry say they're strapped for cash, just trying to make ends meet, whether that's the monthly bills or the rent. I imagine that this is the same for many American households. Meanwhile, I live in a bubble where I get most of the games I want to preview or review for free, so I don't have the best grasp on how much the majority of gaming fans spends on gaming throughout the year. So why not ask you folks?

We've slowly but surely moved from a world where games were primarily purchased at retail stores like GameStop or Best Buy to a world where digital content, pre-orders, and DLC reign supreme. I tend to purchase Xbox Live, PSN, and Steam cards from stores nowadays to keep my credit card information away from the digital space as best I can.

But I still pre-order and purchase a few Limited Edition titles every now and then from stores, and I've been to a few midnight launches with friends. Ever since I've assembled my desktop rig, though, I've been addicted to Steam and the Humble Bundles for deals, which has probably made my expenses for gaming larger than I've anticipated this year.

So have you been spending more money on gaming over the last decade, or less? Do you still go to stores or do you purchase most of your games through digital means? Do you invest as much in gaming as you used to? How often are you frugal, and how often do you purchase full-priced games at launch?
