I have a novel idea. Those of us brave enough to do so should track every penny we spend on gaming for the whole year, right here in this thread. Keep editing your original post with your latest purchases and a running total, then come the end of the year we can all goggle at just how much money we've ploughed into being stilted adolescent manbabies!

Every bit of hardware, every game, every subscription, every bit of dlc, every conceivable penny that you've outlayed on our hobby. Do you have the cojones?

Might actually do a reverse of this and count how much money I've saved by using Game Pass on my PC and Xbox as I don't think I'll be actually buying much this year at all. That's before I look at my Steam games list... :D Might make this a year of playing catch-up in COVID times....

Hoping this year, will be less. It has to be, after buying both consoles, a game & watch, game gear mini and Astro City last year (I blame lockdown madness). Huge, happy backlog, to work through in these cold months too.

 

January

Nothing - but the sales are tempting. Currently have credit in Sony and Nintendo from last year. That won't count.
