How much do you spend on microtransactions, if any?

    I just completed Shadow of War, which apparently requires an extra 5 hours of playing if you don't buy any microtransactions. My main procedure is to buy the best deluxe edition (usually "gold" but sometimes collector's) along with the included DLC, mainly the season pass, but never any packs or anything like that.

    On principle, I don't buy microtransactions. I just don't. Even when it comes to full-size DLC, if I'm buying a game that I anticipate will have DLC, I instead wait for the complete version of the game to come out a year later and buy that instead, which is how I paid like $30 for Skyrim and all its DLC instead of like what, $120 or $140?, and Borderlands 2 for like $8.

    Even now that my PokeBank has expired (like two years ago) I haven't renewed it, though I regularly spend more money on breakfast that lasts me six hours compared to a PokeBank subsciption that lasts 2000 times longer. I don't know why I'm so opposed to this stuff, and I wish I could get over it.

    I spend an average of $0 dollars on microtransactions. I do buy dlc though, most of the time.

    The foolish, young me would spend 59 dollars (cost spread out along a distance) on micro-transactions for phone games, ranging from that one awful online version of LOZ all the way to a game about white cats assaulting military bases. I'm still an occasional waster nowadays, though. Spent 10 dollars on a game called Captain Tsubasa: Dream Team. The 12 day beginners thing and 12 "dreamballs" were worth it, though. I got the best bird to ever exist in soccer.

    I've never bought anything for DLC, though.

    If it's a DLC I'll get it, but I usually just buy little things here and there. If the in-game currency can be used to get it instead through some sort of currency exchange the way a lot of MMOs do, I usually try to do that instead.

    Nothing. Whilst I do play some free-to-play games, they're just in my spare moments (of which I have very few for that sort of thing) on the bus/at work etc., and I don't indulge in the exploitative AAA game economy any more than I absolutely have to...by which I mean I might buy DLC if it is good value for money, but otherwise only buy games that only have the one payment to make to get the full experience.

    I don't, generally. But if it's a free game I enjoy and I can throw like a dollar or two to get it ad free I don't mind supporting the game developers with that.
    But I don't buy in game items and such.

    ... probably more than I should.

    I spent $25 on DB Xenoverse DLC if that gives you any idea. u.u

    I used to have a rule for my mobile games where I would allow myself one transaction and nothing more... These days I don't play many mobile games so it's basically nothing

    The only game I buy microtransactions on is Pokémon Go. I mostly use them to get more Poke Balls and the like, since I find myself to run out of a lot.

    I drop $20-$40 dollars on every Overwatch event because I like collecting skins for Pharah and other characters a lot, but I'm going to stop (I hate random rolls so much! Might as well spend that money on a game or on DLC...).

    Not a lot, but I'm not against spending money on it either. The only games I've ever played that actively use microtransactions were mobile, and those generally don't hold my attention for long enough to really care. DLC is fine though, I'll buy that if it interests me.

    In a year, I probably spend a few hundred dollars mostly for in-game events.

    I spend nothing. I will gladly spend the extra time to level up or get farther in a game.
