How much money do you spend on idevice games on an average month?

I am just wondering what everyone is spending on an average each month on idevice games ?

Lately I am spending about $100.00 a month (the last 2-3 months) and I have to tone it down a bit. It's hard because I love to try every interesting looking game and the prices are cheap so I always buy it. It seems like there are games that I want to buy every day and everytime I log in to the TA forums there is something new. Darn you TA Purchases of .99 , 1.99, 2.99 etc....really add up !!

I have to say that I am having alot of fun but I just have to be a little pickier when buying. I will probably just keep buying everything that appeals to me until I run out of money or my wife throws my iphone in the toilet Actually she loves the games as well so it's even harder, but I must confess I do 95% of the buying.

help !! ...............lol

A reasonable amout of money for me to spend would be around $50.00/month (I don't spend money on for any other systems)

Dang, thats a lot.
I spend depending on how much money I have at the moment.
Usually like id say no more than 20 bucks per month.

It's almost always between $20 and $50.

Depends on what games get released in the month really, but I would say usually about $15-$20

Way to much!

I still think the bang for the buck is pretty awesome for games in the App Store at the moment, especially if you can be patient and wait for sales/freeappaday/etc.

I'm pretty picky and frugal about what games I get. I almost always wait for sales. Though it does depend on what games are being released. Usually I only spend a few dollars a month, unless I get several or a pricier game.

I think my average is about $12 every month, at least for the past few months. Most of the games I bought were on sale.
