    I bought a ps4 only for god of war (great game btw).

    I'm pretty sure my cousin has more money in TF2 than he does hours, and he plays that game all the time.

    None other than purchasing the game itself.

    I'm not a moron.

    Eh, dunno to be honest. Maybe League of Legends, but I haven't spent all that much, all things considered. Plus, I've played quite a bit of it so uhhh it's ok I guess.

    If your talking solely about IAP, and not how much a game costed, then Growtopia, it's the only game I've ever bought stuff in, but I've spent more money (less than $60) buying a video game before

    Yes!
    I waited nearly 7 goddamn years for Persona 5, so you better believe I dropped $100 to get just the standard edition delivered to my door the same HOUR it was released in Japan.

    I also bought the original Logitech GT racing wheel for Gran Turismo 4 for whatever it cost ($250?). Granted that peripheral worked (until the awful cheap pedals crapped out) with all my other racing games, and worked on PC as well, but it was mainly used for GT4 (which sort of sucked, but whatever).

    edit - other than those, I never spend more than $20 on any given game. I used to buy Gundam titles on release, but the latest two have been Online-only, so they don't get my money, this time.

    Yeah until their server decided to kill you lol and people calling you hacker for not being dead. I invested way too much time on that game.
    Since time is money, Time does count, right? Also played way too much Ragnarok Online and Tree of Savior.
    For those who don't know RoTMG, here is a video:


    It's a flash game with so much swag.

    I bought Destiny 2 and the Expansion Pass at full price, so that was like $90 at the time? I'm still undecided if I'm going to get the next expansion or not.

    I pre-ordered Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, as well as the Gamecube adapter so if you count both of those I believe that would be $70-80.

    I've bought Terraria on like 4 different platforms (more than any other game), but it's so cheap and often on sale so the dollar amount comes out small.

    As for free-to-play games, for all the 100+ I have played, I am pretty close to 100% f2p. I spent like $40 on NX Cash for Maplestory back in the day and about the same for Audition. Those are the only ones I can ever recall spending real money on.

    I guess you could say I'm on the cheap side. I don't like to commit a lot to a single game, and I generally only buy games when they are on sale or have been out a while and dropped price. I feel like I get more value out of playing a variety a games than getting deluxe editions, DLC, etc. To keep things balanced, I make it my goal to average about an hour per dollar spent. Not that it happens with every game - when I get bored, I move on and don't think twice about it. But then there are other games I get in Humble Bundles for < $1 (or f2p games) that I get tons of hours out of, so it all averages out.

    i bought destiny 1 for ps4 for around 45€ base game, 35€ 1st season pass
    then destiny 1 for xbox one with all addons, but i shared with friend, so probably 70€
    and destiny 2 for xbox one for 70€

    but:
    i bought a switch for ~300€ and was scammed on ebay, (payed with bank transfer, thought i could undo it, if it turned out to be fraud; i couldnt)
    bought another switch for ~300€ and an elite controller for ~45€
    only to play breath of the wild and mario odyssey (both used for ~45€)

    so ~370€ for botw
    and ~370€ for mario oddysey

    edit: but i will probably use my switch for metroid prime 4 if its not shit, so it might even out over time

    Shit... I spent a total of $60 in that game just to expand my backpack and buy pokeballs in between trips to the city... And I felt scummy.
