Rock Band 3. Probably between $150 and $180. That game is why I started using Bing Rewards. Every three weeks I would get some new songs.

NieR Automata , tells the story of androids 2B, 9S and A2 and their battle to reclaim the machine-driven dystopia overrun by powerful machines. About $60, maybe have a discount now,but I think it's really worth buying.

The Last Guardian for it's collector's edition. Statue is nice but typical garbage collection.

Super Smash Bros 3DS/Wii U. Got both versions, all DLC characters, and a few stages. Add the GameCube adapter and additional Gamecube controllers that only work with this game if you play on Wii U.

I belong to a true gamer family, having a collection of video game consoles passed on generations. I most probably buy 3 games per year and could spend around $200 on it. I mostly browse over Internet sites like Best Buy, Press-start, Gamestop, Greenmangaming, etc. to buy a new gaming console or to play online via the Xbox subscription for 12 months. And the most classic and retro game I like is the Super Mario Bros.

This is good.  There really isn't one game I spent a lot of money on.  There are games I wish I did not spend $60 on like Sega's The Incredible Hulk.

Wrong thread. Cool collection, though.

Probably Fire Emblem. 

 

I get all the DLC. And I always secure a LE when avaiable. 

 

I lost my copy of PoR, but that was when it was $30 so I bought another. Also lost my copy of FE: Awakening. I've bought Awakening three times so far; once on release, once after I lost that copy and once more as a gift for a niece.

I’d say Halo 3 tops. I was buying map packs along with the title at full price on initial release.

Close second would be Probably Marvel Vs. Capcom 2. I spent $80 on ps2 version that was in stock at a gamestop. I drove at night to grab the last copy.

Not 100% sure, as I don't really go crazy on DLC unless it's cheap, and if I want it bad, I'll get the season pass. I do have a bad habit of rebuying games over and over and over, even if the HD remasters or newer ports aren't as good. I've bought FF7 about 4 times, KH 3 times, etc.... I did buy some skins in League of Legends a while back, but they were always on sale, and likely added to about $25-30 in all.

I’m always leer of getting caught up with re-buying titles. I will usually repurchase a title only if I’m replacing the old version with the complete edition. I’ve done that with Dark souls 3 and Witcher 3 most recently

Final Fantasy XI... Played it since beta... I went through an Evercrack phase when it was about 3 months into the live game. Yeah it was bad...

Everquest between the monthly subscription (it's F2P now but wasn't then) and the various expansions at $30 a pop.  At least $240 worth of expansions during the period I played plus probably around $1,500 in sub fees over 8-odd years.  Plus a server change or two -- you're looking at north of two grand, at least.

 

Yikes.

Probably WoW ... been playing on and off since launch. I'd say a solid 4 years of subs would be about right. Combine that with the expansions and a name change or two...looking around 1k easy.

 

Other than that Rock Band (bought an unholy amount of songs for RB2 / RB3) plus all the gear. Maybe $500?

 

Then I'd say it would have to be Overwatch (I ended up buying it twice on PC and once on X1 and PS4 ... plus 10-20 loot boxes every event.

I dropped too much into Gran Turismo 5 because I bought a DFGT wheel, and I payed a lot for Rock Band 2 as well.
