How much money have YOU spent on games?

This should be interesting. How much money have you spent on gaming on your iPhone/iPod/iPad?

Personally I only started gaming alot on my itouch when I got the 4g a few months back. So I only spent a bit more than 50 dollars or so.

How about you?

Far too much, but compared to backtothis, I can't complain.

I recently made an excel sheet to keep track of that.

I have 1030 apps (registered on invoice) incl. LITEs and Freebies. Didn“t have the time to edit out the LITEs and the crap. But since they were for free I cannot complain.


Effectively I paid €364 for 280 apps since September 2009.
EDIT: And since I got a LOT of top apps for free, it about balance out the money I feel wasted on some purchases.

Too much. I didn't game on the iPhone much either, till I got the iPhone 4 in August. I spent between $30-50 a month there for a few months, now I'm down to around $20.

I've never even checked.

I'm not a game collector, I'm a game player.

If I see a game I wanna play, I'll buy it. But I'll never buy one on hype or just to have it.

I do have 3 pages full of folders full of games on my iPad though. But to answer your question, more than I probably should.

Lol I'm a collector. I grab every RPG that comes out and have done so since inotia 1. I also grab every game mentioned on here along with every game that looks interesting in the top 200..I wanna buy less games not that money matters but because I have 200+ unplayed games that I really need to play..

$70 a Month gets you too many iOS games.
