What's the most you've paid for a game?


#1

Not including kickstarters.

Used/out of print: Realms of Chaos: Lost and the Damned (it was like $110 at the time, so I guess that was a good investment). Still probably the prettiest game thing I own. Adrian Smith pencils, geez.

New: Veins of the Earth.

And I guess, if you collected expansions and subscriptions… I’ve spent a LOT of money of WoW.

I used to live in Australia, so paying a premium on games was just a given. I remember I bought some collectors editions of some 360 games and that bumped up to $150AUS.


#3

Whatever I paid for Destiny, in time and energy and exhaustion.


#4

I bought Titanfall and the season pass at release. I think it was $85 or so. No regrets. I got a lot of enjoyment out of the game and the season pass allowed me to look forward to the DLC packs rather than stress about their coming arrivals.


#5

Full price on FFXIV on PC and PS4 for the core and expansion. As well as a digital collectors edition. I think that’s around $100ish before sub fees.


#6

I bought the special edition of Fire Emblem Fates last year which was like, $70, which is the most I’ve paid for any one game like that. I did get the FE: Awakening 3DS in 2013 which was $230 but I literally didn’t have a 3DS before that so that was like, a console purchase too.

I don’t know the exact number but I definitely spent close to $200 on Dota 2 items. that was spread out over ~2 years so it didn’t like, ruin my life, but boy those $3 sets and $10 compendiums add up over time huh.


#7

Don’t remember the price but I got the special edition of Ni No Kuni with the spellbook and it is fab.


#8

Skies of Arcadia: Legends on Gamecube. Paid $80 for it at a local used games shop, and I still haven’t played it. It’s been on my bucket list for years.


#9

You know, I knew that and that still upsets and surprises me every time I hear/read it.


#10

Games like DotA (ie, ftp) present an interesting issue. I often spend a little money in them every so often because I feel like that’s the right thing to do. But I’m also the weirdo that goes back to pwyw games and “buys” more if I think I would up underpaying the first time.


#11

If we are going lifetime, WoW takes it with ease, between all of the expansions, at least a second account, and years worth of subscription service.


#12

I mostly said WoW because I tend to never buy anything more than the basic edition of anything and often buy second hand but wanted to include some sort of video game. I imagine it’s going to be MMOs for most people if we talk lifetime.


#13

If you count subscription fees and expansions, WoW. If you count cosmetic purchases, Dota 2.


#14

I probably paid somewhere over 200 dollars for extra stuff in FFXIV (not counting the subscription fee) in the 5 months I played it.

Mistakes were made.


#15

World of Warcraft and it’s not even close.

Base game, five expansions, subscription fees for about seven years, buying 25K gold so I could power level jewelcrafting at the start of Burning Crusade.


#16

Skyrim collectors edition with the art book and dragon statue. I think it was $100.

As a bundle the Fire Emblem Awakening 3DS for around $240, my first 3DS.


#17

Halo 5 CE and Titanfall CE were both $250 at launch. Regrets? Nah


#18

When eBay and I were both young and spry in the late 90s I would pay top dollar for terrible Japanese N64 games. I forked over $100+shipping for an Evangelion game with frustrating controls and then again for the interesting but flawed Wonder Project J2. I really wanted to like both! I understand that $100 for a game isn’t all that much but to a baby highschooler it was probably the most I had ever spent on anything and felt like a fortune.


#19

I’ve… put a lot… into League of Legends.

Like… a lot.

~ shame ~


#20

Not including my constant subs to FFXIV and the money I keep giving Blizzard even though they do nothing to deserve it… I once paid a little over $100 for the collector’s edition of Dishonored 2. I loved the first game and the second I saw the goodies that came with it, I pre-ordered it during E3.

(I know you’re not supposed to, but sometimes I take off my glasses and grit my teeth and wear the mask for a few seconds.)
