I don't tend to wait for sales, but i Love Katamari is the one I feel like holding off on, but knowing Namco, it'll be that price forever.

I agree you do look "silly" because we already have these topics. Just look for a bit. There was one yesterday only. Also you look "silly" because you are missing out on brilliant games because you cant be bothered to spend a small bit of cash.

Is waiting what potentially could be months to enjoy some of the best games on the App Store seriously worth saving a few dollars? Most of the games on your list have far exceeded my expected entertainment per penny ratio, even at their "premium" price.

Oh my goodness, are there like one of these threads every other day jesus. Um have you played games on other platforms before? jesus..in my opinion there are quite a number of games on the idevice that are as fun and entertaining as games on other platforms which range from 5x-50x the cost. So are you really complaining about games that are less than 10 dollars already? How do you expect developers to make money with all the crap they have to put into quality games...with 0.99 cents per download minus the fee apple makes? Please..

Yes. It's well worth it. You get more games. Some people have fixed incomes. I set aside $10 per month for iPhone games. So... if we do a little quick math here, that's 9 games per month (damn tax).
