How many games do you buy each month?

I buy about one game per month. I buy console games pre-owned but usually buy new PC-games.

How many games do you all buy each month? Do you all buy new or pre-owned games?

I buy about 0.2 games a month. I just don't play games that often.

Re: How many games do you buy each month?

I can't really break it down per month as some months have better releases than others but so far this year I've bought
12 -15 games.

Re: How many games do you buy each month?

One, maybe two. And they are usually $10-15 games. Very rarely I might pay $20 or more. But that's more of a "once a year" kind of thing.

Nowadays, most months none.

I'll then go grab a few, so it probably works out at an average of one a month.

Re: How many games do you buy each month?

I probably average 1 a month. Lately I'm well over that average as I've recently purchased FO3 GOTY edition, Uncharted 2, Liberty City Stories, and today COD:MW2. But I probably won't buy another game now for some time.

I usually get 1 or 2 AAA titles a year between my systems. then, maybe if I have a little extra money, I'll pick up a Wii Ware title or a used game. Dating back to my NES days, though, I don't think I've ever picked up more than 6 games in a calendar year.

Most months, none.

Might be as many as three this month though.

Around one every two months. Though I am a sucker and buy new, though I will probably get a used game next.

Re: How many games do you buy each month?

Maybe one a month, after it all averages out.

Let's see, this month so far I've traded in 4 games and got Wet and Ghostbusters, only ended costing me $5 out of pocket.

Then I picked up Dragon Age, today was COD:MC2, next week will be AC2

November is always game heavy, before the past 10 days the last game I bought was Batman in August and before that was Prototype in June I think?

Saaaaame, I've only played about half of what I own.

For the last couple of years I've bought probably two-three games a month on average, mostly used cheap ps2 games. Since I started playing WoW in August though I haven't bought anything since.

I'll buy 1-2 games a month. Most of them are new unless it's a game that's hard to find.
