We all know that being in the Neo Geo scene is not cheap. I have always been currious as to what other members make to be able to afford this expensive hobby. I make about 90k a year, 28 years old and have been into the Neo Geo for about 11 years now.

I'm one of the more poor people here, I'm sure. Well, not counting the four year olds that play only roms.

I make right around 50,000 a year. It's enough that I can still pay on my house (with my GF who makes about 35,000) and support my habit.

if making around $50,000 makes you one of the poor people, then i'm a fuckin' bum. i'm in the "less than $25,000" category, waaaay less.

I don't think that would put you in the 'poor' category. At least, I hope not. ;)

I thought the same thing. I'm one poor bastard.

Well, I work in a sporting goods store, usually not more than 20 hours a week.

What do you think?

It depends on who you should count. I work a summer job every year. This Summer Im working at a sleepaway camp So I should make about $1,500 including tips. Thats my whole income for the year. My parents are a different story however. My dad made $350,000 last year and my mom made $67,000 as a lawyer and a teacher respectively.

i just signed up for a permanent position last summer for 42 Ks. and got a pro-rated bonus last week for 1700.

it would seem like i'm bling blinging, but the more money you make as a single guy, the more payola Uncle Sam extorts from you. that plus i still have $32,000 of assorted debt (student loans, credit card bills etc)

Same here.

I went from working about 32 hours a week and getting paid well enough to pay for my college, car payment, insurance for the car which is more than the payments themselves, and buy the occasional game and now I've been cut back to around 16 hrs a week but I've gotten as few as 6 hrs.

Student life=broke ass nigga.

Hmmmmm ..... now here's the question:

Does the Neo attract broke people or does the Neo make people broke?

Good question.
I'm leaning towards the latter.

It's the spiral of death.

This is a very expensive hobby, I can afford it easily (I am one of the 2 people who voted the first option), but being anxious and wanting things badly is something I really enjoy.

That is my masochist love for SNK.

A nonsensical answer for a nonsensical topic.

How is this a nonsensical topic? This is an expensive hobby and I wanted to know what kind of income people made to be able to afford it. I am surprised to here that a lot of people don't make that much but are willing to spend what they can on the Neo Geo. That is really hardcore. Now if you don't like the question then don't answer you idiot!

Well, at my new job I'll be making about 44k/year, and way more if I pick up an overtime shift every week. But I just started, and before I was only working part time, so this year I'll be lucky if I bring home 35k.
