Would you spend some money to buy gold points/chips in Zynga Games?

in Zynga games such as poker and mafia wars, you could spend some money to get some virtual chips or points to increase your attacks etc. I admit that, Zynga really has a good business model but would you spend money just to get these intangible stuff?

I know I am stupid. I spent some money on Farmville to expand my farm. But that was when I only had one FV neighbor. Now that I have more neighbors, I don't need to do that.

No way! It amazes me that anyone would spend money on that stuff. I'd never pay real money for something I could never hold in my hand. And half the stuff they spend money on to level up or whatever I have just from saving up my fake coins I get. I don't understand why people go so far for these games. Or like on pogo.com they pay extra money for "badge books" that have special badges in them. But they are virtual. you never actually get them, so what is the point? Eventually you are going to get bored with the site or something and then what do you have to show for it?

No would not personally I would not but having said that a lot of people must do. I remember signing up to King of Kung Fu game when it started and lots of people must have bought items as there was no way they could have been as powerful as they were without spending real life money so early on in the games life. They also offer items and such in game through offers which they must make money from when people complete them.

Well i certainly wouldn't go spending hundreds of dollars on the games as they will not in anyway benfit you in really life. although spending money on these games can be very enjoying and give you the upper side in the games making it easier to level up. if you do decide to spend money on these games do not just waste the money on silly stuff. think through what you wanna buy as the actions cannot be reveresd

i would not spend any money from my pocket for the game, it's better if i use it for something useful or something real. for me, game is just for fun. it might need the a lot of times to increase the level, but it's better than i spend my money. i am rather use that money for buying a chocolate.

I like face book and Zynga games but I would not spen any of my money to buy extr things on there. There are to many other things that are really important to use my money for then to spend them on online games to help me get ahead. I dont think its wrong to spend money there its just that I wont be.
