How Much Does A Gamer Spend On Gaming?
TheGamer recently conducted a survey with their readers to try and calculate how much the average gamer was spending, and then figuring out from that how much they would spend over the course of a lifetime. The answer? A whopping $58,000 is spent by the average gamer on the hobby over the course of their lifetime. As they say:
The results of the survey revealed the average gamer spends roughly $76 p
er month on gaming or about $58,000 over the course of their entire life. Millennials spend the most out of all gamers at roughly $86 per month and $66,000 per lifetime.
Is that a mind-blowing figure? It's about $20 a week. In comparison, to other hobbies, it's actually fairly reasonable. Most other hobbies would cost far in excess of that. A keen-golfer could easily spend over $100 per week.
To be honest, given how many hours a gamer gets out of their hobby, per dollar spent gaming is probably one of the cheapest options.
Time to go and buy the Game of the Year, guilt-free.
