Just go to the kickstarter and look.

For project Eternity it shows:

25000 pledged $20 or more
20921 pledged $25 or more
…etc…

BTW, just the above two dwarf all the big contributions.

I myself paid $55 for Wasteland and $70 for Eternity and I usually buy games from gog.com or GOTY versions when they are below $50… I view Kickstarter as a platform that can make creators and mine dreams come true, but apparently some people started to view it as "easy money" - a place where people just throw money at you - i.e. Old School RPG/ SHAKER Project and other less important projects…
But on the other hand Brian Fargo has a point as well - if his ideas for the sequel are not going to be accepted by the community than it is better for everyone involved not to make the game at all…
I've pledged (bought) like 10 kickstarters already, but all of them I've paid between $15 and $20 each, where instead I would have paid probably $40-50 on the normal release games, so actually I'm paying a lot less with kickstarter.
