    Seriously:

    Assassin's Creed
    Dragon Age
    ODST
    Forza
    Ratchet and Clank
    Uncharted 2
    Brutal Legend
    God of War
    New Super Mario Wii
    Jak and Daxter: New Frontiers
    Motor Storm Arctic whatever
    Borderlands
    Shadow Conspiracy
    Modern Warfare
    GT:Gay Tony
    Bioshock 2
    Dark Void
    GranTurismo 5
    I know I'm not listing them all, but these games have come out or are coming out within the next 4 months. Not everyone is interested in EVERY single one of these, but even if you can pick 4 out of there, you're already looking at 200 bucks, and on top of that the time to dedicate to every one of them.

    Add more to this list of Wallet/Time killing brigands, because I know there's a new Call of Duty or something... oh yeah... Red Dead Redemption.

    I think I'm going to have to let some of them go, no matter how badass they are. Dragon Age should hold me over, I hope.

    I only got two of the games listed there, and that's only because TRU didn't stock Demon Souls (which I would have gotten for free anyway).

    I started being real picky with the games I buy nowadays, a lot of the time they're just not worth 60 bucks. It's better to rent/borrow games you're unsure of then it is to blindly buy them.

    Well, see but I adopted that philosphy too. I still haven't bought Motor Storm Pacific Rift, even if I have always wanted it, because I was going to wait for 20-30 bucks. But even outside of money, the time needed to really get everything out of the game.... if you work and have a family it ain't happening.

    Yeah, I forgot about Demon Souls, which I heard was pretty awesome.

    Only 2 on that list interest me. And that’s Modern Warfare 2 and New Super Mario Bros. Wii. I’m getting Mario for my wife for Christmas Modern Warfare 2 is a early gift to myself.

    It doesn't help that it seems to be taking longer and longer for games to drop down to $20.

    Only 2 games period are interesting me at this point. Spider-Man: Web of Shadows and Quantum of Solace (missing GoldenEye and hoping it's as good). And luckily they're both on the $20 rack at Wal-Mart. :D
