Gaming on the cheap

Like many of us know gaming can be an expensive past time with most games being priced at $60 not to mention sometimes purchasing accessories. Here are some helpful tips I’ve learned over the years to help you spend a bit less but still being able to enjoy what you buy.

One of the best and simplest things you can is simply buy when possible. used  for starters sometimes its best to simply buy used.  Often you can save $5 to $10 dollars another benefit from buying use particularly at Gamestop you have a week trial period were if you don’t like the game you can always return the game and get something else instead. From time to time Gamestop or local video games shops often have those appealing sales, buy one get one 50% off or buy 2 get one free type of deals which is a good way to pick up titles. Thrift stores and second-hand stores are another excellent way to find games, just be aware that they may only have a small selection to choose from or none at all. Your local swap meets are a good way to find video games on the cheap and if you venture here often enough you will recognize the regular vendors and possibly build a relationship with them and will often offer you good deals if they know you buy from them regularly. The last method has only become available the last few years which is being a member of Xbox Live or Playstation Network. For $60 which is the price of a new game you can download 2 games a month, the only draw back is you have no say in what games you download so sometimes you might get games that are not to your liking. You also have services like Gamefly that let you rent out games for.

Overall these are just some ways to continue playing without leaving your wallet empty. So what are some of the ways you game on the cheap? leave your comments down below.
