DS Effects and Jirbo: who would you 'support' and whom would you buy games from??

Imagine the App Store had only two game developers - and you still would buy/download games... Which one would you stick to?!?

Who wants to imagine such a nightmare???

I wouldn't support either to be honest. Why would I purchase crap? Because that's my only option?
You forgot the 3rd option. Stop visiting the app store!

Edit: I guess you didn't forget the 3rd option as there's an option to wake yourself up from the nightmare. My thoughts exactly!

Jirbo has some fun games for my children at least. With no skills I bet I could make a better game then DS Effects within a month of playing with the iPhone SDK.

in terms of quality i believe Jirbo beats DS... but they are so cheap (not talking about pricing) that makes any game not worth playing, IMO...

but just like in politics, if i had to either choose one or be absent from all of this, got to admit jirbo has more entertaining games - or at least more appealing i guess... BUT i would quit gaming on my iphone! at least i would have saved hundreds of dollars o_O (most of them well spent with games that are available in the real world)
