Do you earn your own money to buy games or?

Recommended Posts

Begoo

Do you earn your own money by doing a job or something? Do you have your own credit card? Do you borrow money from family or you just save it? If you do a job then where do you work? If you dont then how do you save cash and how long does it take you to save it? Just curious.

After getting the job, I am buying things with my own money, mostly through digital methods - not cash nor cards. There are ways of saving money from salary that helps in planning for many things that I want to buy every month, especially, since my salary is quite high while my spendings are limited to only basic and essential expenses. Additionally, as a long time member of GOG, I am sometimes offered certain amount of cash back by digital wallet services that further helps to save on the cost of purchasing any new games.

"Do you have a credit card? Where do you work?" Is this a topic for trying to get our banking information?

The Coconut Kid

I haven't saved money specifically for a video game since I was a child. My grandmother used to put a pound coin in my hand every week and I'd frugally save them up for, I don't know, 30 or 40 weeks of the year to buy whatever game had caught my eye in the Argos catalogue. I think her aim was (and she succeeded in doing so) to teach me the value of money.

The last game I bought was FIFA 18, my first FIFA game since 2004 (or whatever year had Thierry Henry on the cover) and one of the very few games I actually own on my console. It doesn't feel like I own them because they were all downloads I purchased with a debit card. All of those I do own were purchased when PSN were running some kind of discount, let's say 20% off or near that, so I even though I'm pulling down two wages I've got this habit of waiting until games are discounted to buy them. And when I do look around for discounts, it's always after payday.

I bang chicks for Marlboro Miles then I trade the Marlboro Miles for cash money which I spend on "Complete in Box" SNES games which I'm at around 450 total so far I'm on my way to a complete set.

I earn money for a job or selling things. I'm a good seller because I always sell anything, I should work in an independent market for toys or second-hand things of my own.

 

And with money in hand, I buy sometimes Music CDs, rarely shirts or some things I need. I don't buy games because I don't play any since around 2017.

Why even buy games when you can just steal them? Cut out the middle man: money.

Sadly, my local Wal-Mart greeter knows me by name so I can't go there anymore.

I'm 44, I have my own money, and I use a monthly budget to go out, or buy me or my special someone a treat, be it a nice piece of clothes, a teddy bear, or yes a computer game. As to the latter, I've always maintained that if I had to actually save money to buy a game, I really could, and should, find something better to spend that money on. Certain things should always remain just extra treats.

 

For OP's curiosity/statistics: I've been working in office service providing and organizational development, I was fairly good, earned decent money and invested wisely; I am retired now, due to Autism-related issues; a humble pension, some additional income from freelancing, and my quite modest life style have me doing still ok, financially. In case of need I can of course rely on my partner, too, but I've been always proud of having my own financial means, overall.

I have two cleaning jobs. Pay is sh*t, so I get a little help off the council towards my rent and council tax. I hardly buy games new, always used. Or I buy new if cheap, or on sale if digital. And nowadays I only play a few games as I get bored easily. I just mainly top up my Gold account, mainly out of habit.

Yes, I earn my own money. I make pretty good money as a nurse. I don't buy many games because I usually pick one game and play it for a ridiculously long time. I also pay all my own bills, but that makes sense being I'm pushing 40. I also have awesome credit, which has come in quite handy. Not to brag or anything. Well, I kind of am. I busted my ass to get to this point. 

 

Stay in school. Also, don't be this douchecompoop:

I've never had a credit card and don't intend ever having one. It's bad enough that I have a debit card I can use any time to buy games from the Xbox and Playstation stores. Holy sh*t I've spent some money on games since doing that than buying those gift cards.

Yeah, I earn money to buy my games. Plus rent, bills, food, taxes etc. too. Maintenance on the damn car takes more than it's bloody share and all.
