Just wondering how much you guys think is "too much" to spend on gaming

By gaming I mean the whole thing including Consoles/computers, TVs (or a monitor), Games, accessories, etc.

I think it is well worth it to spend more money at times, gaming has truly evolved to be a much nicer experience than it used to be

I mean you still have "retro" games for people that prefer that style (or they can stick to older systems or games) but theres also the more hardcore/realistic segment

I have spent a decent amount of money on my TV, console, and so on (well I didn't buy $200 controllers like some people do) and I dont regret it.

I'm always a bit behind on gaming (I didn't get a PS4 at first, having waited over a year to get one at a cheaper price and be able to buy games at cheaper prices) but that just means I can get more out of my money

To me going much above $300-$400 on a system is too much,

On a controller $60 is probably the absolute highest I would ever go

though even that is unnecessary as prices have gone down on controllers, on games I usually spend closer to $30-$40 at most.

I do have to say though if the PS5 ends up as good as its supposed to it may be the 1st time I ever buy a completely brand new system; and that is allegedly gonna cost $500 upon release

So what is your take

Too much is more than you can afford to lose. Its relative to a person's disposable income. Also, like anything else, if it interferes with the activities of daily living or future goals - its too much. Games and hobbies of any sort aren't investments, they are entertainment.

You can never spend too much if you are still paying your bills and not going broke. I have like over 700 video games and that is from all the years I had been buying them since I was 15. Most of them I got used and I got them way after they had stopped making them because they are cheaper then.
