More like $250 or so, with $100 you can buy a game and a half
i was about to say that 100 Australian dollars will only get you 1 game because it's less than the US Dollar, but then i remembered the current exchange rate is almost identical at the moment, so the only reason 100 Dollars gets you less game in Australia is because we get ripped off massively by retailers. which brings us to Moddb. =D
i thought it was the nice beaches tax...
Yeah I have seen books for $50.00 Canadian and $25.00 American when the value is nearly the same 1 or 2 cents less. I think it's insane, another thing that is weird is I order this magazine that is printed in the town I live in, still takes 5 weeks, It seems like they ship it down to the USA then bring it up here and I still end up paying more money than Americans, The USA is the wealthiest country shouldn't they have to pay more?
Really? Because the UK has long since had the most valuable currency. X-rates.com
Anyway I voted free, 'cause...well isn't it obvious :p, most free games are the best anyway. And by all means don't let these tricky Americans convince you to buy their capitalist junk lol.
I'm with the Swedes/Paradox Interactive
I would have lol'd if it wasn't so wrong.
Yes but Canada has an insanely nice health care system paid through all that tax. In America we pay tons more for our medical insurance and medicine since our system is still pretty obnoxious, but I won't get into all the annoying politics on that.
REALLY? USA, THE MOST WEALTHIEST COUNTRY?
USA has one of the highest rates of poverty, and are NOT the most wealthiest country. AT all. Sure, the have the most money, with their own country killing eachother, (9/11). But really, the most wealthy country, per capita, is Luxembourg. Because The average person make much more money then America, so therefore it makes sense that THEY should pay more. Not america.
We have the highest difference between wealthy and poor peoples. Meaning, we have extremely and obscenely rich ******* and tragically poor families. We're a very backwards nation, in just about every way.
Most people here also believe we're the political/cultural/literal center of the universe... The US as a whole suffers from an extreme case of the 'Princess Syndrome'
LOL. Yeah mostly ignorance and greed.
Same here in NZ. $120 is the norm, while CoD is always $150 (for new releases of course), PC games are are usually $10 cheaper though... This is all retail, too.
hence the > which means greater than. So anywhere between 100 and 400.
I love how this got plus five and yet, because the narrow end of the symbol is pointing towards the word, it would imply that it's actually less then $100.
Not only are you incorrect, but Moddb is incorrect as well.
What... > is greater than. Say x is the ammount you spend, then you and it is between 400 and 100, so you would pick > 100... its 400 > X > 100
Not only are you wrong, you tried to correct someone that was right... seriously is math dead?
Dunno, I bought about 50 games a few weeks ago for $80. The benefit of being a PC gamer :)
that's nice, bought 12 games awhile ago for PC for 45 Euro, and i thought i made one of the best deals yet :/
Short to say: nice if it was good games included :)
Steam Christmas sale? ;D
Watch out for the Steam offers - I got 26 games (Square Enix pack) for only 75 Euro - these kinds of offers happen all the time. :)
Who cares though, any half-addicted MODDB user knows that all you need is a mixture of Overgrowth, NS2, Minecraft and Frozen Synapse. (to mention the most essential, released titles.)
A game and a half? I an get 3 games with $100
Well, that is if you buy "AAA" games at the full 50$ when they come out. The last time I did that was... 1,5 year ago. And before that it must have been since Half-Life 2. There just aren't a whole lot of games these days that warrant that ridiculous price tag. I'm always willing to shell out 15$ for an indie of course. I always have more than enough games to play so I can wait for prices to drop.
I get whatever I can when I can. I've bumped Portal 2 and Choro Q HG3 to the top of my list. Jelly Car 3 is also up there too. :3
A spezial edition of my Game for $100
i buy as many games as a can so $400 :D
Last year i actualy tracked how much i spent and all in all for last year i spent $738 XD
That's including "special edition stuff" (but not accessories like Microsoft points and such)
mostly on high-rated games, and old good games as a late gamer :)
If you only buy 2 "big name" games bingo $120.
0 dollars. Since I dont pay in dollars I cant spend any, can I? :P
Oh, I usually get two or three at full price then a few cheap ones. So somewhere around $150 - $250 depending on a number of factors.
In dollars? Ehm. No idea. In Euros around 400-500 just this year alone so far.
Hard to say...
But i plan to buy Duke Nuken Forever ( it will be released soon :P )
Hope you have pre ordered the Ball's edition!!!
more like 300$ =)
Fortunately gaming is about the only hobby and I never 'go out' :P
(No-lifer comments are to be expected? :( )
dude gaming is a life! going out is a bigger waste of cash, for less entertainment :/
I'd say I drop a good $ 300-400 bucks a year on games.
It would not be hard to spend that much on a single night out lol.
It's good to keep balance.
And getting the HIV is life then, huh?
You consider getting HIV 'going out'? Man, you need to go to some better venues!
Actually, $100 is a lot of money here, money that I don't have.
50 to 100, but I don't reserve it for indies I'm just cheap when it comes to buying games most of the time.
I only buy games I know are good, things like VALVe games. I wasted $60 on Modern Warfare 2 and I will never make the mistake of buying a game without reading a good review again.
Here in Brazil retailers sell games for like the double or triple they pay for each. Yeah, 40$ for Counter Strke is a bit too much.
50$ - I buy only good games and then I play them for a long time.
I would say about 80 bucks. I can get by on Steam Deals and mods, but there are just some games that I need to pay full price for.
I usually only spend 25 - 35 $ a year on games... unless i get a recommendation that's like 50 bucks.
Bargain deals FTW!
Specials/deals mostly, and only one or two big games each year.
