I'm the same way, I'll spend money on various things from week to week without giving it a second thought, but when it comes to buying a video game I hesitate. I think a big part of it is because of free to play games. For example, I downloaded Secret World Legends, played to max level and got 50-something hours out of it without spending a dime. So then if I'm checking out a single player game that I know may only give 15 to 20 hours or so of gameplay, I have a tough time justifying the cost. It's like, "Hmmm, $30 to $50 for 20 hours of gameplay, or $0 for 50+ hours of gameplay..."

Since i'm single i really can't comment on that part, but for the rest of the OP post i'm the opposite. If I have $100 dollars to burn i eat cheap so I can have more money to spend on games. Both expensive and cheap food will end up in the toilet when I get home so yeah... I kind of rather spend more money on longer lasting things. I've always being like that. A $200 dollar bottle of fine wine just to pee it 20 minutes later? mmm suddenly that cheap Night Train looks delightful, and i have enough cash left for a couple of full priced games, or a bunch of older ones.But then again, i'm single. Money management does change when more people get involved.
