    I have $26 on my giftcard, should I buy games now or wait? I have a lot of games on my mind, but not sure if its worth it just to wait and see what else comes out. I have the patience to wait, but I'm not sure if better games are going to come out or if the games are going to get price-drops (I have AppSniper, but haven't been taunted by too many prices).

    I currently have my eye on 25 games, including:
    Sway
    Warfare Incorporated
    Orions: Legend of Wizards
    Edge
    PuzzleQuest
    Lets Golf
    etc, I'm looking for well-made games and games with frequent updates (I really want WI, but the update doesn't look like its coming soon)

    I already have:
    Fieldrunners
    7Cities
    geoDefense
    The Quest
    Hero of Sparta
    Zen Bound
    iDracula
    iShoot
    Touchgrind
    and a few more

    So, is it worth it just to play out the games I have and wait till a couple months, or go on a shopping spree?

    Personally, I would buy Edge, Let's Golf and Sway now. There's no sense in waiting a few months and you may as well enjoy what you can now. New games will be coming, but that will always be the case. I suggest you add GI Joyride and Sentinel to your list.

    Sorry to unload you you, but I'm really tired of these messages.

    Make up your own mind. We know nothing about you, your financial situation, your age, your sex, etc.

    Perhaps pick up a magic 8 ball? It'd give you the same accuracy.

    hmm... you could get one now, play it till you get bored, and then get the next one on your list. I personally spend every dollar on my gift card the second I get it. Why wait when I could get instant satisfaction?

    Eh, if you are happy playing what you have, why rush into buying some extra stuff? It will only be a dead weight.

    If you are not, then research, try Lites and make your selection.

    I agree with Omnithrope, just not nearly as severely as he said it. Unfortunately we have no idea what your tastes are. That and the list is quite big.

    Games can sometimes take forever to come out and then sometimes some come out earlier than expected.

    There is a saying..why put off tomorrow, what you can do today? It's obvious you WANT to buy games since you have a large list. Buy what you want and go with what YOU want and don't let others make your decision for you.

    actually i think this thread is fine and there is absolutely nothing wrong posting it, first of all he/she is very descriptive with information on what he already has and what he is looking for, his age and sex have nothing to do with this at all, now there is something wrong with posting a thread stating i have $4 what do i buy......
