If you backed up your iPod, your games and data will all be saved. If the games don't work, then you've got to wait for a 3.0 compatibility update. Sooner or later you're going to have to update because games will be made around 3.0. 3.0 also has copy and paste, search functions and a whole list of improvements. I'd say update now, but don't expect too much from your games.

restore is possible (though you get a warning that its irrevocable) i tried it anyway after upgrading to os 3.0 i had no problem at all with any app except one that was pretty old and not ever updated... actually almost every app was running even better than before
i'd really like to see some stats about how many people do upgrade

All I can say is that thankfully I haven't had a single problem with the update on my Touch 2g.

My videos absolutely kill my battery life now; before it was fine. But other than that it all works.

Well, one problem I had was that 3.0 erased all of my games data. I even backed it up before but it still erased all of my data in Zenonia (Lvl 42), iBomber, CJS, Quantum Collapse, Defender Chronicles, Wolf 3D, and many more.... But oh well, no biggie, I can restart and have more things to do so I can look at it optimistically. That's my only problem so far.
