well for me it use to be 1 a month but since i bought SC i havnt felt the need to splash out anyway i suspect the more older members will buy more games than the teens on this forum as they have a steady income,even though i dont work at the moment i can still afford to get what games i want and so ill useally buy 12 or 13 a year....how many do you splash out on?,........

NOLF2 is a great game. It has some of the most realistic AI right now. There's a cool expansion pack coming out soon where you play as the bad guys.

i don't buy a specific amount.

I bout 2 a year.. GTA series and WWE Smackdown series.

then like splinter cell - if a game comes along that sounds cool i will buy that too. I'm not a big gamer, if it looks great i will buy if not i won't.

Eh, well, it depends on how many games come out that interest me basically.

Most recent purchases include:

Splinter Cell for PS2. I bought the XBox version at launch, and also picked up the PS2 version at launch, just cuz.. ;-)

Return To Castlewolfenstein Tides Of War.(Xbox)

Unreal Championship.(Xbox)

Vietcong. (PC)

Run Like Hell. (Xbox)

Primal. (PS2) Blah!

Project Gotham Racing. (Xbox) Hey, It's a Platty Hit! heh.

Devil May Cry 2. (PS2)

Enter The Matrix. (Xbox)

Lord Of The Rings The Fellowship Of The Ring. (Xbox)

That's all I can think of at the moment. I have bought as many as 3, in a month's time however, if they interested me. I'm bad about buying another game before I have completed my most recent purchase. Guess you could call me a bit of an addict, heh.

I get maybe 3 a year. I can't get much with the five dollars a week my mom claims to "give" me. On top of that she is the most anti videogame person I've ever met. If nobody else will, she will vote for banning video games. The only game sh ever liked was Super Mario World for Super Nintendo. That broke, and she's hated video games since. It must have been a traumatic experience for her. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif
