    Your Gaming Spend - Edition 2016

    OK, so I didn't see Superman Falls had started a 2016 Gaming Spend thread and created another one.
    Then I started a new one.
    Then ETC pointed out the repetition.
    So I merged the threads.
    Then deleted the superfluous one.
    Turns out, I deleted both threads.

    So, sorry everybody, I broke it and here's the new one!

    "It's the tipping point between two years and 2016 looks set to deliver a slew of titles as the current gen gets fully into stride and long delayed titles all start to hit in a wave.

    That means there's a whole other year of risks to our wallets again.

    The new YGS thread is here for you to keep track of your gaming expenditure shame.

    Are you expecting to spend lots in the new year? "

    Sadat's post was really long and probably took ages to write, sorry!

    "Another year! Tracking spending, both on games and other things, has definitely changed the way in which I arrange my finances.

    And has led me to some interesting stuff out there, on how by setting some long-term goals and minimising the crap purchasing decisions might lead to a better life:

    Last year I dropped off around July I think and forgot to keep track. Will try once again."

    I did buy less last year compared to 2014 but gave up tracking.

    For me, 2015 was the first time I've managed to wrestle spending below the ?1k mark and I'm hoping to drive it down again by increasing my reliance on the PC for new releases, holding off more on new releases till sales start and clearing a hole into my 600+ title backlogue."

    I ended up waaaay in the black last year after working a few really big deals, don't think I'll be doing much of that this year though. This might be the first year I can actually see what my spend is without the wheeler dealer stuff so may be interesting.

    I went crazy in 2015. 2016 will be a selling year for me. Trying to keep it minimum so 0 so far and hope it stays that way for a long while.

    I ended up a little in profit last year, mainly thanks to selling the PS4.

    Expecting much less wallet damage now than in previous years, unless I take the VR plunge.
