    I only buy games that I know are good. So overall a year I'd say I buy 3-4 new games a year. Sometimes I buy used games if they're worth it. The only time I've bought 2 games in the same month was Metro 2033 and BFBC2.

    Lost me on buy...

    Really though, I haven't played any newer games in a while, there's just nothing new that I feel the need to buy and/or play. I played RA3 actually. Nice to see that EA lived up to their title and completely ruined the series after booting the original development team.

    It just depends. Some times I see cool deals and I buy them, especially if its a game I've been looking at. May alone I've already bought four, but that only cost me 10 bucks.

    Anyone who buys 5 or more games a month deserves a shovel in the face. For 1, there aren't even enough buy-worthy games out there. I'd rather not play the majority of them, specially since most are owned by EA.

    Cheap or indie titles? Probably one every other month, or less.

    Big name, big budget titles? Probably one every six months.

    Actually, I think the last full-priced game I bought was Arma 2.

    I normally buy one every other 1 & 1/2 months, unless its a sexy deal by Steam and they make sexy prices like always, That ends up being like 6-40 games on the holidays.

    Back when I was console gaming I would get like 2 or 3 games a month,

    Varies depending on what's coming out or what Steam has on sale. Usually at least 1 per month.

    I never buy $60 games usually. Mass Effect was the last one.

    But I take advantage of Steam deals a lot. So, like 2-3. I bought GTA IV and two things of GTA Classics.

    And I'm thinking of getting Amnesia and Civ IV tomorrow. Then I'll be done for quite a while.

    Bad poll.

    Why can't people make intelligent polls?

    I only really buy games at the Steam Xmas/New Year sales, or if there is a good offer on.

    Shut the hell up.
    The poll wasn't new games per month, it was games per month.
    I KNOW FOR A FACT that there are at least 60+ Games that are worth buying.
    Also, Saying For one and not having a two is frowned upon.

    Anywhere between two to five games a year.

    Edited:

    Except for those big game packs that cost like $15.

    If i'm lucky 1, If I'm super lucky 2-4.

    I only get money every 2-4 months, so I gotta use it wisely (Examples of not using it wisely: Buying MW2)

    Usually about 2, but there have been months where I buy any game that crosses my mind, which has been up to 7 or so.

    Less than one. Fuck all good comes out. I tend to waste my money on a mediocre shooter though where I play the singleplayer once, go online for half an hour and then uninstall for ever.

    Probably 2-3. I usually get cheap indie games that sell for $5-$10, and are awesome. I can't remember the last time bought a full priced game.
