How much do you think video gaming has cost you?

Never mind the money, what about the time, the precious time that you can never buy back

Hmmm...now I think about it, if I could buy back all that time I'd probably only use it to play video games

Assume that each game cost me £40. 26 GC games, two 251 memory cards, three pads, a Game Boy Player, a Broadband Adapter, and god knows how many PSO hunter's licences. Fuck me, I've spent £1400 on my GameCube in less than two years. FUCKING HELL.

I've just tallied it all up with a breakdown of game specific t.v's, import stuff, perephirals etc.. but my p.c crashed.

About 10,000 in ten years.

my import 64 and 90.00 games from torc etc set me back over a grand in the 1st 3 months of its release.

I hate to think of the total throughout the years starting with various Spectrums, going up to the present day machines.

It's got to be around the £20,000 mark I reckon, I wish I'd kept all of the old systems instead of flogging them, losing loads of money and then having to rebuy them on eBay years later.

Difficult to say.

Hardware wise Xbox new was £150, GBA with game at launch was £100, Gamecube at launch was £150 with a game, Megadrive was £100, Playstation was £150 with 6 games, Saturn was £20, Dreamcast was £15, Gameboy Colour was £60, NGPC was £30, GBA Sp was £50, Flash Linker was £100, Gameboy Xchanger was £35, PSone was £30.

£100 + £150 + £100 + £150 + £20 + £15 + £60 + £30 + £50 + £100 + £35 + £30 = Approx £850. Not much, but then add on another 300 games... let's say a conservative estimate of £5 each. £1500 + £850 = approx £2350.

Not really THAT much, but do consider that it's a very conservative estimate. I'm only 16 too.

Over 20k easily.

Like others have said i spent over 1k alone on Jap N64 games around release time and first few months.

I do trade alot tho (swapped a PC for a JAP DC (then bought another pc a week latrer !!)) so christ knows how much in total.

Still i know someone who has spent that money on 'doing up' his car ;)
