How addicted to games are you? the reason I ask is that today I went to the my local game store, I was only meant to buy a gift card but I thought I would look around and see if anything caught my eye, I ended up buying a box set with 9 games in it!!!! I couldn't help my self!! it was on sale
has anyone ever had a similar situation?

I have had a situation like that.I walked into my local Game Stop and went in to buy a cheap game for my Xbox and ended up pre-ordering 3 or 4 games. I later had to go in and cancel some of them.

I'm not sure about games just because they're so expensive. But I have with clothes all the time.
I have a habit of buying lots of downloadable songs hen I mean to buy one.

I have the exact same situation as you big-al, many of my games are bought that way.
Whenever I go to any mall, I always rush to corner that has video games on sale, I can spend my life there without getting bored. I love em soo much!

Life is best for those who enjoy it, difficult for those who analyze it and worst for those who criticize it.

The UK is great for cash convertor stores, yesterday I picked up FF13 for £10, I was laughing my head off.
I noticed Demons Souls there for £15. Didn't have enough or had a CC with me, hopefully its there today and ill grab that too :P

Havn't had a moment like that. Can't afford it these days.

I've never just walked into a store and ended up buying a game I wasn't thinking of buying before. I either buy games from a series I really like or I read up on it on IGN a lot first.
I don't want a big car, particularly. I have no need for acreage, and I don't like the fuel bills. But I don't want a small one because they're all like supermarket own-brand cola: weedy imitations of the real thing - Jeremy Clarkson

I haven't been in a game store for months. Most of my purchases, of which there are few, are on Steam, and I'm extremely frugal in my purchases. I mainly wait for specific games to be put on special while playing what I already have.
