Okay, the last game you actually paid for. How much did it cost (pre-tax)?

If you bought more than one, take the last one you decided upon. (If it was a multi-pack or bundle, just take an average.)

Multiply the highest value by 10 and add $384 to it. This is definitely the exception to the rule however. Most games I buy are $20-50 and for the current generation systems.

$4 for a SNES Bust-a-Move. 90% of my game purchases are from the flea market, so less than $5 is the norm.

Bought Atrix (new) for $25 and Solaris, Pitfall II, and a keyboard controller for $5 at NWCGE. I bought them all at the same time from the same guy and I decided on the Solaris last.

I guess I'll say $10.

The very last games I bought cost about $1.50 each, courtesy of eBay. So, the first choice got my vote.

The last new game I bought cost $19.99, plus tax.

Elektroplankon for the DS set me back $35. That was the last game I bought. I'm *trying* to be good. ^^

$20 for Aki Mahjong. Ambrosia is a pretty cool Mac software developer, so I didn't mind it. Panic is another cool shareware developer for Mac.

$126 for C.I.B. Subterrania off of e(vil)bay.
I have been paying over $100 on each item I am missing for my 2600 collection.As you can tell, I am getting down to the nitty-gritty(i.e. expensive), that is, very few things left to get that do not cost something crazy like over 4 or 5 hundred dollars.In the last week, I have basically blown my tax return money. :D

$6.30 ($6.99 minus a Tuesday ten percent off discount) for the classic Gameboy title Radar Mission.

The two before that were Mario Golf (N64) for $13.50 (same discount), and a batch of games with Mickey's Speedway USA and Pokemon Crystal for $10.99 each.

I'm getting into the medium-expensive N64 titles now, and I'm close to rounding out the Transfer Pak compatible ones (just need both versions of Mario Tennis).

My average cost is $9. Everything Atari I buy is from the $1 discount bin, most of the Gameboy title I get are $7 or $11, and the N64 titles I haven't got yet will probably run $10 or $15.

$2.99 for Xevious 3D/G+ for Playstation. I've been looking for that one, found it at GameStop, which is not one of my regular haunts. No jewel case (except for the cheap plastic carrier) and no manual, but lots of gaming goodness.

Holy bejeepers! Those last few items get pricey. My last buy was a sealed Enduro for $5.
