I would say if you do what I do and tend to buy the games on sale at Steam or Origin or wherever you will be fine for a while.
True. I forgot about that. When I think about it, I don't tend to get games the moment they come out. I also don't game as much as I used to. Even if there's a game I really wanted to play, I could always get the console version (assuming the new Xbox or Playstation haven't come out by then).
It's good to know I'm in fairly good shape, and this puts me at ease with my decision to pursue a smartphone.
