    I'm sure people will make fun of me for this, but the game I invested the most money into was Pokemon Shuffle Mobile, when I used to play it. I think that I've spent around $500+ on Jewels alone during the time I played it, which is around 18 months.

    The most I've spent on a game would be The Lab, sure it's free but the Vive isn't.

    I spent something like $120 (inc shipping) on Super Fire Prowrestling Special import for super nintendo. It wasn't my last fire pro, but most of later ones I bought were on disc, not cart, so cheaper. Well worth the money, I spent plenty of time on that (tho not as much as on the next one I bought, Fire Prowrestling S 6men Scramble on Saturn, must have spent thousands of hours on that counting the create mode)

    Which Zelda? (there was a Zelda with a collector's editon?) *googles* oh, the gamecube collection disc... I have two of those, payed nothing for them got them free from Nintendo Power, lol

    Defender of Texel, a game made by DeNa (yup, the same guys that Nintendo Allied with) and wasted nearly 150 Dlls on microtransactions.
    it was my darker moment when I reallized that pay-for-win microtransactions are evil and I had a problem, thank God I got over that game.

    I'd say without hesitation the SEGA Megadrive System!
    It's fresh in my mind just like yesterday! I remember getting my certificate for primary school (was a big deal!) and was asked to choose my reward: a bike or the megadrive console. The dilemma only lasted (I made it last!) for 10 seconds lol.
    With my new console and two cartridges (MK2 & Sonic) I would soon discover that new games cost money! So all my savings were kept for this purpose. So as a kid, my biggest investments were the megadrive games!

    I built my first PC specifically for WoW and played that probably 4-5 years altogether, so that definitely ranks in at #1 top spender. That was back in the days when me and my nerd friends had time to all play it together at LAN parties or from home whenever. Call it $1700 altogether. Still like Warcraft 3 TFT more, and doesn't hurt that it cost so much less. :rofl:

    #2 is harder to discern, likely has to be an early title for Vive though, since I bought that setup at $800. Windlands (double grappling-hook Spider-Man sim) probably edges out Space Pirate Trainer in that regard, even though the latter has had very impressive updates. So call it $830. Err...$930 with the deluxe audio strap. Worth every penny, especially considering my VR library is now over 100 games.

    Not sure how much exactly, but over the years (7) around 1.400 euro I think?
    Not much if you realize that I spend 4.000 euro a month for house/ living.

    What single game? Easily ESO. Even when I'm not playing it I still pay a monthly subscription.

    My girlfriend's son has spent several hundreds of dollars on NHL and Rocket League. One month he spent 500USD on it.

    Dragon Blaze by Flint, published by Gamevil. £2-3k. Crazy stupid amount to have spent but I had the money and i've enjoyed playing it which is what counts to me.
