    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Probably at most one new game. I used to buy so many games two generations ago, they tended to sit on my shelf unplayed for months, or I'd play them and be disappointed. So now I'm just trying to buy games that I really know I want to play.

    I don't buy a lot of games. I tend to be very picky about which games I buy and then I play the same games for a long time.

    I have no pattern and will only buy a game based on price and if it interests me or had a good demo. Last game I brought was in October (OP Flashpoint 2) and before that was in September (Batman) and a larger gap before then (Dead Space) in late spring/early summer.

    It really depends on the month. Sometimes I go a couple of months without buying anything. OTOH, in November I'll get five games (all for the PS3): Ratchet & Clank: A Crack in Time, Dragon Age: Origins, Assassin's Creed II, God of War Collection, InFamous (Platinum).
