Games (video, computer and mobile) are something people would hate to give up. According to Newzoo, Gaming will hit $91.5 billion this year. How much would it take for you give up your favorite game for an entire year?

Leading mobile casino, LeoVegas.com, conducted an independent survey to investigate how much people would have to be paid in order to give up some of their most prized possessions.
mobile phone : Over a third (34%) of Brits say they wouldn’t give up their mobile phone for a year for anything less than £50,000
lovers: over 33% of Brits said they'd agree to give up their loved one less than £50,000. Of that 33 per cent, 14 per cent said it would take just £500 to dump their partner for 365 days, with no guarantee of getting them back after being spurned.
pets: pets are amongst the most precious possessions, with nearly 1 in 4 of British adults (24 per cent) saying they couldn’t go without seeing their furry friend for a year unless they were paid at least £500,000.
games: Over 1 in 5 of us (21%) would have to be paid over £50,000 to go without them for a year.

I mean, I'm not a gaming addict. I'd take any money that a person would give me. Give up ME2 for a year? $10? Hell yes, I now have $10 more than I had before. Time to go visit /r/outside or something like that.

I dont know what my favorite game is. I dont play many games, I usually play them on bulk. Pick one game, play it for a couple of weeks until I did absolutely everything with it, and then move on.
How much money it would take for me to not play for a year? Hard to say, probably not too much, but on the other hand, I probably wouldnt agree to a deal like that out of principles.

I feel like if you put a million dollars in front of someone and said it would be theirs in a year if they could just stop WoW for a bit, I think the numbers would be nearer 100% or so.

I suppose my favorite game is DotA 2 now but I have so little time to even play that ... Yeah I'd take the money. Put it to good use; buy a house, invest some, and continue life.

    I am not complaining though Hurricanes are not fun I have been through alot of them
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    I evacuated for it just incase since I live in La Porte pretty much right on the water (in Houston area). Didn't see anything. It's a good thing for me anyways.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    It's too bad that Blizzard messed up so terribly with Reforged.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Still has a 0.6 user metacritic score.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    (Out of 10)
  • Varine Varine:
    I haven't even tried it yet because everyone said it sucked. How do you get .6 out of ten?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am waiting for Dwarf Fortress to come out on Steam then I am on it.
  • Accname Accname:
    I play Dwarf Fortress from time to time.
  • Accname Accname:
    Its Okay.
  • Accname Accname:
    But the performance is sub-par. Does not seem to be well optimized.
  • Varine Varine:
    Is the Steam version coming with a graphical overlay or is it using the ASCII graphics still?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Steam version has the graphical overlay.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Steam Version has graphics, a new interface and will be integrated in the steam mod stuff
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    I didn't think WC3 Reforged was that bad. It pretty much did what it stated (to me at least), but then again I can care less about reforged campaigns and all that. I just care about gameplay.
  • Varine Varine:
    I think people were hoping for a resurgence in mod support. I have little interest in the actual game tbh
  • Varine Varine:
    Plus I know they added that Dota precedent clause where Blizzard can steal your shit which isn't cool.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    They sold Reforged to the community as primarily a huge graphical uplift with high res textures and redone cinematics.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    They even showed one of the redone cinematics at Blizzcon and that very cinematic wasn't even in the released game.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    So I think folks were angry about that.
  • Varine Varine:
    Didn't the backwards compatability have issues too?
  • Accname Accname:
    I never had any hopes for that. Blizzard is not the same company it was 10 years ago.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    It happens in corporations. They just absorb the companies they buy and it is not about the love of making awesome games it is how much money can we make with the least amount of cost.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Blizzard is watered down now hopefully they can pull it together
  • The Helper The Helper:
    they got a server engineer job opening :)
