I'm seriously considering deleting most of my apps…

It's not gonna be easy, but I'm sick of missing out on the latest and coolest games just because I don't have enough memory left on my phone, due to me not wanting to let go of my games. I might go on GameFAQs or something and make a "If this gets x comments, I'll do y" topic. I'm sorta afraid, but it has to e done sooner or later. What do you all think?

Just do it. There must be games you don't play much.

Yeah, you're absolutely right. It's just that I like those games, it just play them when I get around to it. Like, "Man, I'm in the mood for some ___ right now."

I'm the same way I tend to hoard apps.

I have a simple system for removing games: if I haven't Played a game in a month it gets booted off.

Try selecting "purchased" in iTunes on your computer. DL everything, then purge away. DL either iExplorer or IFunBox, both of which let you manually explore the file system without being jailbroken; that way you can retrieve save games. I know with iExplorer, you could create a backup now through iTunes, and then (I think) manually extract you apps.

I really need to purge my ITunes app collection. I'm almost at 12k apps now

Everything you bought is still in your account. If you don't have hours and hours in a savegame file, nothing is lost by deleting. Purge the old and make room for the new!
