100 for Mario Allstars (Jap import) for the Snes but most other import games we bought cost around 60-70. I did, for a while track down a few Gamecube games that I wanted and some cost a fortune lol but deffo worth it

Trades in at GAME; gets 25p

Think the highest I've paid was 64.99 for Jet Force Gemini on the N64

55 for Eternal Champions on the Mega drive. Never spent that much again and never will. EC had its moments, but it wasn't worth that.

I saw a Wii game called Step to the Beat which looked fun but it was selling for about 70 because Konami stopped making it but then I looked again and the price had gone down to 20 so it must be adjusting to supply and demand.

Far Cry 3 as I got it in a supermarket at top price but as it was with Christmas money and I had only just got my ps3 I wasn't too bothered but I'd never usually spend that much.

Never really spent over 50 on a game, special editions etc don't really interest me. For me the most I've spent would be on WoW for the game expansions and subs, I dread to think what that came to over a couple of years!

It was worth it for Blade's stage music alone

Nah, it was good, I think that was the most I 'spent', although it wasn't me who bought it.

Probably Donkey Kong 64 paid about 60 but you did get the expansion pack in the package.

Spent a fair chunk on the GTA IV Limited Edition, think it was close to 70 at the time.

I didn't buy it, but I saw a boxed SNES version of Secret of Mana going for 59.99 in Gamestation ages ago. And didn't that game with the ludicrous controller (similar idea to MechWarrior, IIRC) cost like 80 new?

Most overall would be 5+ years of WOW expansions + sub.

I have also bought each of the three Mass Effect Games + DLC three times on 360, PC and PS3.

Think it would be StarFox 64, back in the day. Seem to remember it being 60 or 70 but came with a rumble pack...

30 Everquest 2, and its expansions:
120? 6 expansions
15? 2 adventure packs
35? in-game purchases
600 total of 6-monthly subs (approx)

800 total i spent on that game over 6 years, not bad value for over 10k hours worth of entertainment. Like 133/year, or 8 pence per hour.

Probably blops because I bought all the map packs and the zombie maps . I once sold a copy of vib ribbon ps1 for 55 and monkey island bounty pack for 70. I bought the bounty pack for a tenner so not too bad. But now I wish I had them back
