Hello fellow gamers I thought I would start this new segment to bring some attention to some really great deals available in both retail outlets and online. I chose frugal because the word “cheap” just has such a negative connotation to it. My purpose for creating this segment was to reach out to like-minded gamers such as myself who enjoy gaming but would rather not spend $60 a pop for every new release that comes out. As gaming has become more and more expensive I’ve had to really curb my spending habits and I’m sure a lot of you can relate to that sentiment. Let’s face it the economy isn’t in the greatest shape right now and every dollar you spend has to count. Does that mean that our beloved hobby has to take such a critical hit? The answer is NO! What it’s going to take on our part however is a little patience (waiting on prices to drop or sales) and some real bargain hunting to get the most for our dollar. As I have changed my spending habits and as my gaming habits have changed I’ve also discovered some really great games I passed on before like Fable II & III both of which I will list in regards to location and price below.
