Don't you feel your spending too much?

Recently, I went and deleted all the apps I don't really play anymore and I actually got kind of sad and frustrated with all the money I realized I had just thrown away..

I've deleted some really big name games.. Zenonia, Zen Bound, CJS, ... it sucks to do it but I never play them and they take up space.

Well yeah, it's still in my iTunes, but the thing is I never play them anymore.

I hate how the app store is so good at consistently bringing out good games. With other systems, I'd buy a game every couple months. But with the app store, I buy games daily.

Yeah, I wish you could like rent the full game for a monthly cost (for cheaper) and then buy it if you really like the game (for full price).

How much would it cost to rent a 99 cent game? Or even a $5 game for that matter? That is already about the cost of a game rental.

just curb your spending, if you want and need a game....wait it out an hour, a day, a week...its cut my spending from like 50 bucks a week...to 99 cents, maybe 10 bucks a month
that and my ipod 9 screens are filled..and i play everything that i have on it...so that curbed my spending right away

meh idk

i guess there could be 2 ways to do it

either you pay like, 25 cents a day, or something like that
and then you "return it" to stop your payments

or

you could rent it for a fixed period, like a week, for a dollar

i suppose .99$ games would have no use for it though :/

i suppose the rental process should be optional...?

cuz all appstore games are def. not console quality and you only play them when:
-you're bored with all your console games (xbox, ps3,etc...)
-on trips
