I'll develop a list soon. But I can guarantee I won't spend that in a year.


Haha...that was just the second payment (the first was another $450, at the end of December). I wish I could've gotten them both for $550...heck, I'd *REALLY* like to get away with spending only $550 in a year on video games, but I collect somewhat big-time, and I resell on the side, so I have to spend a bit to get the games to resell, and since most of what I collect is rarer stuff, I usually end up spending quite a bit (I probably spent close to $5000 last year on video games).
NES games cheaper than a lowball :P ! Check this link:

My top wants? See them here:

I don't always visit CAG...but when I do, I win your lowballs. Stay thirsty, my friends :) .

I saw this thread late last year and wanted to do it, but couldn't be bothered going back through the year's purchases, so this is my first time, I guess! And I only just remembered about it, so I hope I managed to track down all my purchases so far this year. Anything I've forgotten would be small cash purchases. I'm copying and pasting from a spreadsheet, so please forgive any strange formatting. Sources are left out since I live in Australia so most of the shops would probably not mean much to others here anyway!

I realized today that i've yet to spend a single penny on video games for myself this year. MW3 at launch and Skyrim on black friday were my last purchases.

I rented MLB 2K12 for 2 days from Redbox so that kinda broke my perfect out of pocket streak. Also a couple XBLA games but I bought all those points last year and still have about 6000 points.

This year looks pretty boring game wise besides Witcher 2 and Ghost Recon until Football games start coming out in July/August didn't go past that on GS site.

I don't really see the need. It's in one of the least active sections of the forum, so there isn't much threat of it getting buried. Not that it matters much to me either way, though, 'cause I just access it from my Subscriptions page.

Personally I don't even use this thread, but it seems to be stickied every year, so I'm just surprised it hasn't been yet.

Probably just an oversight. I've seen a couple of people request it, but I don't know if anyone has actually contacted a moderator directly.
