    i buy a new game roughly every month, so that'd be $50.

    I've purchased one game since December.. (No More Heroes) But I'd say I usually get about 1 game a month... that, mixed with Wii Points and such probably gets me to an average of about $55-60 a month..

    well haven't bought really anything lately (no job anymore). But total ive spent around $800 including tax. I've had my Wii for 10 months now so that averages at $80 per month. and that should steadily decline because that included a tv and i was just trying to build up a collection, so after a while it should be roughly $55 per month, if that.

    id say an average of $50 a month on buying a game a about $30 towards renting.but it never really stays the same.

    I average around $50-60 dollars a month as well.
    I have yet to buy two games in one month, March could change for me though with Brawl, Bully, and Okami.

    All depends on the month, but on average for the Wii so far its about 100 a month it probably will increase as better games come out.

    Thanks For the props on the avvy, rep for you.

    But thats the way I do any system. Im pretty hardcore and make really good money so pretty much anything I see and want, I get. I generally buy a new game or periphial for one of my systems everyday.

    I currently have
    1344 NES
    1876 SNES
    405 GENESIS
    109 SATURN
    2 milkcrates full of GB/GBC
    300 GBA
    989 PSX
    554 N64
    412 PS2
    211 Dreamcast
    69 JAGUAR
    123 NEOGEO
    59 DS
    174 XBOX
    21 PS3
    15 XBOX 360
    games (this includes imports and special editions, marks)
    plus just about every periphial for all but the next gen systems. The ALPHA GAMER title is from when my house was featured in the newspaper here the headline was "ENTER THE ALPHA GAMER"
    So yeah the spending may decine sightly but only if something in the 360 or PS3 finally sparks me to give a **** about the systems and break from my Wii addiction

    when i get a new usb cable for my cam ill post pics of my house, its pretty much a gaming shrine lol. i host tournaments on my projector in my GAME ROOM all the time if anyone is in the ohio area and wants to stop by PM me.

    As for what I do, I own a homes painting company and have been collecting my whole life virtually.

    I also make some loot by buying a "lot" of games from yardsales/flea markets/ebay and selling dupes

    the last system i owned before purchasing a wii was a ps one :lol:

    so yeah, i think i appreciate next-gen consoles an awful lot more than the next guy.
