There was a time in my life when my budget consisted of two basic line items – things I needed for survival and video games. Everything else was superfluous. At that point, video games made up a good chunk of my budget. My overall spending on games has gone down over the past several years, but my spending on MMOs as a percentage of the whole has gone up; I didn’t buy anything in the Steam sale this summer, but I keep up my subscriptions to games, I often buy cash shop fluff, and so forth.
Of course, we all have different amounts of money to spend on gaming every month. But for some people, $100 on MMOs is barely any part of their monthly gaming budget, and for others $5 on Star Wars: The Old Republic is pretty much it for the month. So today we ask you, dear readers – how much of your gaming budget is spent on MMOs? Do you buy a lot of games and spend comparatively little on MMOs, or do you spend most of your money on MMOs regardless of an actual dollar amount?
