If you were given a $10 iTunes GC what would you get?

There's been some notable releases these last weeks including Real Tennis 09, and Real Racing!

Which leads to the question what would you do with 10 bucks to the iTunes App Store? Would you buy real racing or buy 10 99 cent apps?

Anyways Thanks for reading, can't w8 to hear thoughts!!

I have both real tennis and real racing and I freaking LOVE real tennis. It took me days to figure out the best way to do the controls, but once you start beating your opponents its just so much fun. I definitely reccomend it.

Real Racing is also really good, but i've spent more time with tennis.

I would spend wisely. I don't think I'd want to blow $10 for one game, instead I prefer variety. A few .99 and 1.99 games would work.

i disagree, there are good 99c apps out there, but quantity doesn't make up for quality, ever.

Real Racing, Defender Chronicles, Toki Tori, Knights Onrush. Those are the relatively new games that look pretty amazing. IMO not Star Defense, becuase honestly it looks outright boring. If you want an interesting TD with good graphics get Defender Chronicles. I'm saving up for Real Racing and Toki Tori.

Edit: The people above are absolutely correct. DO NOT get a whole bunch of 99 cent apps. the golden rule: quantity< quality and quantity≠quality

If the world didn't suck, we'd all fall off.
But life's made better because of iPods.

You'd be surprised. I'm the kind of person who can't sit around and play one game, thus I'm happy with more variety.
And yes, there are very good .99 apps in the store.
