Im going to have to say Fallout 3, 50 bucks for the game, then 4 dlc so far and another one this month... so total its gonna be 100 bucks

and that odst with controller sounds like a nice deal, still debating getting it...but that would be another 100 dollar game

120 for GTA 4, was the biggest rip off. Sold it straightaway.

Most I have spend on an xbox360 game is 30.

Most money I have spent on a game period, is Gran Turismo for the PS1, I got it on import for 75 the day after it released in Japan.

It was WELL worth it, the first Gran Turismo blew my brain, paved the way for the driving games we see today.

Oh, the good ol' days of "stick a cotton bud in the disc tray button to fool the PS1 into thinking the lid is closed then swap the import disc with a PAL one, then swap back to get the import one working!!!!" those were the days :)

Most ive spent on a game is 80 and that was the Limited Edition GTA IV with Duffle bag Etc. and the offical game guide. 2nd most would have to be Halo 3 with the Master chief helmet.

Most ive ever paid is 80 for the guitar hero 3 controller bundle, which still gets a bash here and there

Most for me would be Halo 3 including helmet $200 AUS and second would be Assassin's Creed Black Edition for $150 AUS.

GTA IV : 44.99

Still only played it for about 2 hours and still don't care for it. Biggest waste of money. Could of got the GTA Bundle (III, VC and SA) and still had change. :(

Nozza XBA
07-13-2009, 11:19 AM
All depends ..

Most spent in one go would be Rock Band Full Kit. Cant remember full price but think it was between 100 - 150.

If your gonna bring DLC into it, hands down it would be Fallout 3. Iv got all DLC (whats it around 10 a pop). So all this plus the game must equal around = 90 odd + theres one more DLC to come so 100 in the end lol

*Fallout is a estimate so may be less, but still a lot!

Xedoss
07-13-2009, 11:23 AM
200 euro's for Rock Band when it first came out. Not to mention all the DLC i bought for it.

After that GH3 with guitar controller.

Regular games, not more than 60 euro's, which is the normal retail price here.

UntouchedGrant
07-13-2009, 11:24 AM
Well since you didn't say Xbox 360, I'll have to say it was Panzer Dragoon Saga on the Sega Saturn - a whopping 150 (think thats around $300). I had it when it originally came out in 1998, but sold it with my Saturn to fund for the Dreamcast. Bought it again a few years ago when I re-purchased a Saturn.

I think my 2nd most expensive game was Samba De Amigo on Dreamcast - 100/$200.

My most expensive 360 game was Guitar Hero 2 I believe, around 70.

07-13-2009, 12:55 PM
Woah, a lot of you have spent a decent chunk of money on a single game. I'm not big on collector's editions, so the most I've ever spent is around $150 for Rock Band.

TikTak
07-13-2009, 03:07 PM
Rock Band Bundle (Guitar, Mic, Drums + Game) - 99

Or

Halo 3 (Limited Edition, the Master Chief Head thing) - 60 pre-order.

marzipanninja
07-13-2009, 03:15 PM
It was Call Of Duty 4- 45 on the ps3, and then a further 80 for it on the 360( 2 copies) so that'd be 125 and as i have not long traded it in again i suddenly feel the need to play the MP again.

DTwirler
07-13-2009, 07:12 PM
Spent $70 on Gears of War 2 LE, plus one map pack (dammit...). ODST will eclipse that when it comes out, I preordered the LE for $100. That green controller was far too tempting to pass up.

Exane22
07-13-2009, 07:20 PM
Well, I bough the Fallout CE for $80 I think. And then you have the 4 DLCs and a 5th one coming so that makes $130 for me on that game. Oblivion though. Bought that at $70 for the collectors Edition, and then all of the DLC combined was around another 60 or so bucks, then I bought the game of the year edition for my PS3... so grand total would be about $160. And every penny of the near $300 has been well worth it :)

Does paying $249 + tax for Wii Sports count? ;)

If not it was $79.99 for the Tales of Vesperia Premium Edition :)

I did get the Halo 3 Legendary but that was not purchased by me because it was a gift.

I know my mother spent 100 one christmas for me on Street Fighter II on the SNES, the game was 75 imported and 25 for a convertor.
The most i've probably spent myself is about 50. Though I have just pre-ordered DJ Hero for my girlfriends christmas present which is going to cost me 89.99

Was that like, a Game like Rockband.. Or just a CD Game?

07-14-2009, 01:53 AM
GTA IV Collectors PS3 $80 Used 360 $20 TLAD $20 so $120 total

Fallout 3 $60 4 DLC $40 + next DLC $10 $110 the only thing is my wife bought me the game so technically i didnt pay the full amount for that one

Screwface89
07-14-2009, 01:59 AM
well mine's around 55 for saints row 2 collectors if i remember correctly, although that will likely be smashed to bits when i get prestige edition call of duty modern warfare 2. Oh my i am so excited for that game i can finally pretend i am sam fisher from splinter cell.

There are some games that are very rare and therefore valuable. The rarest usually are sold for thousands of dollars.

Wii187
07-14-2009, 03:12 AM
And this.. Bubble Girl game is rare?

Is It still rare?

Yup. It was never given the Nintendo seal of approval and since it was a mature title, only a few were sold.

dtolley
07-14-2009, 03:20 AM
Yup. It was never given the Nintendo seal of approval and since it was a mature title, only a few were sold.

And it was only sold to certain video stores, not individuals, which is another reason why it's more rare than others. There are many, many other games and systems that will fetch HUGE prices, one of which we call the holy grail, the golden 1990 Nintendo World Championship cart. I think the last one that sold hit like 16 or 17 thousand bucks.

BTW, Wii187, you a collector?

VladimirK
07-14-2009, 03:29 AM
So far 120 for Halo 3 Legendary Edition.
And about 125 for Fallout 3 Collector's Edition including enough points for the 5 DLC and getting the Brotherhood of Steel figurine for 15 off of eBay wich came with the cheaper Collector's Edition.

But I've got the White Edition and Black Edition of Assassin's Creed 2 preordered just now which will come to 140 when it's out.

And there's the Prestige Edition of Modern Warfare 2 which I'll be getting, no matter how much it costs.
(Probably quite a high amount though going by the looks of it).

16-17 thousand for a game..

07-14-2009, 04:52 AM
BTW, Wii187, you a collector?

Some what. I'm a casual collector. I know which one's to buy at a Flea Market :p. I don't have any grails, but I have a few rares collected naturally over time.

16-17 thousand for a game..

Lol, If it was a Disc, I would kill myself if i payed that much and then the disc snapped

lol, the grails over $10,000 are probably never played. They're probably kept and maintained like a Wayne Gretzky rookie card or a copy of Detective Comics #27.

Rockband for $130 USD. soon to be overtaken by the sure to be super expensive Prestige Edition of Modern Warfare 2. Cant wait to get those night vision goggles and the code for Call of Duty 1 on XBLA. . . oh wait, plus Modern Warfare 2 is in the box.

600 AED roughly $163.38 on Halo 3 legendary edition and the a-hole's ripped me off and gave me limited because they had none left. They said they would give me store credit but they never did.

Most is Guitar Hero 3 and Rock Band ($100 each), hopefully I won't spend much more then $60-70 on anything else. That much money on a video game is a bit too dear for me.

Of course, reasons like that are the reason they invented stores like EB Games/GameStop for trading games.

Rockband easily. The bundle and then a replacement set. Going to have to buy another set coming up. Rock band definetly.

And I consider it all Rock Band one because the "instruments" can be used in the Rock band game. Rock Band 2 and the spin-offs are just convienent alternatives to the rock band one game.

07-15-2009, 01:55 AM

For me it is probably the Halo 3 Legendary Edition which was about $150. Mass Effect comes in close as I paid $70 for the regular edition when it came out. I was then so amazed by it, I was compelled to get the limited edition which was pretty close to the same price or more.

Probably WoW, spent $70 for each 3 collectors editions, first game and then the 2 x-pacs. Then $15 a month for over 3 years of playing, yea so that's about $750.

Sometimes I would get my supscrtion for 3 months which was cheaper and only $30. But it is somewhere around the 650-750 range. It was worth it though. Best game I've ever played.
