So how much money does one spend on building such a large collection? Michael actually shopped pretty smart:
I kept my buying down to less than $3000 per year. So, I waited for deals as I would never have reached the number I did if I went out and bought every new game released at $60 a pop. The last game that I paid full price was the game Shenmue for the Dreamcast on Nov. 8th, 2000.
