Carter. I agree that Deborah`s c0mment is good, on friday I got a gorgeous Cadillac sincee geting a check for $7338 this last month and-a little over, $10,000 lass-month. with-out a doubt this is the nicest work Ive had. I began this four months/ago and almost straight away got me over $70, per/hr. I use this website,, ....mac22.com

So True

I know I Spent $2.88 Billion on Hardware and Software in Q2



I hate to break it to you guys, but you have gone from gamers to collectors. I realized that about myself, since I also have over 188 games and I have yet to play 70% of my collection. I have some games I haven't even installed yet and probably never will since by the time I get all hyped up about a game, a new shiny sale springs up and I end up buying more games to add to the stockpile.

And I thought I was the only one that has a stack of games that they haven't even hit the install button yet. I just bought Bio-shock Infinite and I've still not played Bio2 yet. The list goes on.


If I could stop spending most of my time getting my ass kicked online by a bunch of kids I don't know playing MOHW and BF3 I'd get through a lot more games for sure.



hahaha.... glad to see I'm not the only one with as many games in my collection that I haven't played, as I have.



You make a great point here, wow. In my case as well, I've loaded up on titles from Steam sales mostly and I have yet to play most of my "collection"



"The primary reason is that there were less new titles to choose with new console launches on the horizon."

I don't think it has anything to do with waiting on the new consoles. Gamers want to game and if there's something out there now, they'll buy it. Maybe gamers are getting a little saturated with the games they've purchased? You add up sales from GOG, Steam, Humble Bundles, Indie Royale, etc, and most avid gamers have stockpiled a considerable inventory. I know I have over 200 games parked away, so my spending has slowed considerably in the last year.

Then you toss in free games as well as Android games and it becomes apparent that it's not just about "lack of new titles" or "waiting on the consoles."



I think the article meant that the publishers (not us gamers) are waiting for the new consoles. ie they have game lined up waiting launch instead of releasing them now



Valid point. I have almost 100 titles and I still have less time to play them all.
