internet games use very little bandwidth its latency thats the killer, when using a speed test look at your ping compared to others

I wouldn't say you have to pay more for gaming. It depends on what you're doing. I play video games on my computer and Xbox just fine on a 1.5Mbps/500kbps connection. If you're a gamer with a high-precision mouse then I would get higher speeds. Otherwise, if you're a moderate to casual gamer, the connection's just fine.
