I am having a hard time throwing down 60$ for some upcoming games. However I am finding buying games at a 45-30$ price point to be no big deal. (if brand new and physical). Some games I was GLAD to pay for 50+$ for (Skyrim, some collectors editions...etc)

what about you guys?
Sometimes I feel like steam has spoiled me, if the game's not new (and on PC) I'll wait for a sale. Console games, I usually Amazon buy for new copies, or go in and being "That Guy" at gamestop that buys a older discounted NEW game asking if they have any non opened copies.

It has to be something I can really justify the 60 bucks.

The only games I've spent full price on in recent memory is Sleeping Dogs, Total War: Rome II, GTA V, and maybe Saints Row The Third.

Very VERY rarely will I pay more than $30-$40 for a game.

I never get games for full price anymore. I always wait for a sale

Today's games just rip you off with tons of DLC
Super Mario Kart is the single best Mario Kart ever!

I only day 1 purchase maybe once or twice a year. Stuff like Witcher 3 when it comes out.

Everything else can wait for a steam sale or GMG coupon.

I just voted for the: "60...LOL, I'll wait for a sale" option. I couldn't even imagine having to pay 60+ dollars for a video game, even if it was one that I really REALLY wanted. The most I'd be willing to spend on a PC game would probably be about $20. If it was a console game, I wouldn't spend anymore than $30 on it.
