i would like to know what other people spend a month gaming wise - as i think i have been spending far more than i should
( practically all on my daily giveaway thread)
so i want to feel better knowing that i don't spend nearly as much as other people
this should include:
i don't know what i spend but at least £20 a month i should think (i know gaming is mostly the only thing i spend money on , outside of bills and food and like normal everyday things)

Couldn't have said it better xD
Couldnt of said it better my self.
+1 I'm afraid so. Still cheaper than smoking? A bit less toxic?
backlog is long enough
(except Rise of Tomb Raider a week ago, bought it to play all trio at once)
+1 Also epic giving decent game everyweek and sometimes steam uplay origin too. Only buying few indies at winter & summer sales.
About 50€ a year
it hugely varies depending on the month but more than i should
Usually only 12€ for the Humble Choice Classic Plan, but when there is a sale, things can get out of hands. ^^
+-7€ / month
it hugely varies depending on sales, some month 40-60$, some 0
Around € 25 - 30 a month.
I buy a 50€ Steam gift card for the summer and winter sales,the other months is 0 as i have a pretty long backlog.
I typically spend under $5. I only go for bundles if I will play nearly everything in them, and the price for the content really warrants it. I don't really buy games unless there's an insane sale somewhere I can't pass up or a big release I've been looking forward to comes out.
from my own money its atm 50Euro Summer and 50Euro Winter sale .
Bundles maybe 20Euro in the year
so AVG 10Euro Monthly,i guess .
But 2020 it was kinda a bit more than usually because more free time .
i usually spend like 12 on humble
but in December i bought a ps4 with: ff7 remake, last of us 1-2, god of war 4, toney hawk, kingdom hearts "trillogy".
so last month i spent like 500 on games.
Humble choice and if there is a good bundle somewhere, maybe that.
If you are ok with the money you spent, you do not have to be worried.
If you do not play these games, then maybe you should start thinking about it. Always go for only a game you want and buy another one after you beat that one.
Buying bundles for GAs is a trap as well. I try to keep it simple, one bundle per month alongside the leftovers from my Humble choice and that's it.
Thats exactly what I do nowadays. 5 years ago me would activate every trash game that steam has, Now? Only those games that i'm gonna play.
I was the same until I found SG. Here I learned that it is important to hide games I did not want so I can have only some giveaways visible. This helped me make more logical choices and outside of SG as well. :)
At least 30€ every month. In Decembers it's usually around 200-300€. The average should be around 70-90€, but I actually don't really know. I'm only paying attention if I can afford it. ;)
About 50 a year. I dont buy new games each month, ive 500 games on my acc and i haven't played most of those games cuz i lack of motivation for everything :(
you speak from my heart! :D
Tend to go with humble choice, and maybe something extra on the side, so not all that much. About 15-17€/month on average, I would guess.
Though really, I should probably be spending less, as I don't have time to play all the games I get :(
Sometimes 0, sometimes 20, sometimes 6(because of that Humble Bundle deal). I went for abou 6 months of no buying during 2020 Spring-Winter season. I usually buy something on multiplayer side if I see a lot of people jumping on board. Bought Fall guys but quickly refunded it because game wasnt fun for me. Among us wasn't my type either. Its usually not about money when it comes to games. I can spend as much as I want, but if gaming industry has nothing to offer and my tastes are not satisfied, my wallet sits safe in my drawer. Just give me something that I can play for years and I will pay 60 or even 15/month.
Usually below 10 EUR which mostly consits of humble choice(Lately I have gotten the $8 deal quit often). And considering how humble doesnt put any regular bundles out lately, I haven't bought any of those as well.
If fanatical or humble puts out a regular bundle - might get one. But that rarely happens lately. Very rare I get something directly on store. And even then it's no more then 10 EUR so I suppose even at highest I don't go over 20 EUR a month.
Average of $10-15 per month maybe? I calculated maybe $4 worth of HB per month plus $20 each for summer and winter Steam sales and another $20 for other bundles in between. A few big indles/titles I would also get on sale ~$20 ones.
I have a limit of 25-30€ a month. When I spend a lot on other hobbies like buy books or decide to decorate my new appartement I reduce my game budget.
I used to only buy games once or twice a year, but lately i have been subscribing to humble monthly so.. $6+ now. I might need to reduce my spending somehow though.
24 euro a month for Monthly Choice
0-30 euro a month on various other bundles
0-200 euro a month directly on steam, depending on the month, high amounts in the Summer/Winter Sales, but outside those, if my purchase page is to be belived, i barely buy anything
A poll or a Google form would have more helpful, I think.
My budget is somewhere around $60 per month, though I often go a bit beyond that. Like right now I am looking at the Final Fantasy deals on Humble and keep holding myself in check because I have played them before, and would just buy them in case I wanted to go back and play them again. I always think about them, but forever waiting for them to get bundled as a premium bundle all together... I have almost all of them on consoles anyway... My bad habit of seriously browsing and collecting started when I joined Steam, unfortunately, and with all of these bundles.
thanks for telling me it's best spend it on games because by the time i'm near 70 years old i wouldn't even have enough to buy a house - not to mention i live in the uk, England in fact where your lucky if you can find a savings account at 5% let alone 8%
don't forget you also have to correct for inflation :)
say 1.5-2% inflation a year, so yes not a huge sum of money, but still not very little either.
If however you do the same calculation with 200+ dollars/pounds/euros a month as i've seen people mention, the math turns out very differently.
