Has anyone else stopped buying games?

For about the first year or so of the apps store, I was always buying games and reading up on them. Then, say last Fall, I just lost interest in them. I've purchased a lot of the popular ones - Rolando, some FPS stuff, some racing games - and spent $300 in total for maybe 80 games (sometimes for 10 bucks, sometimes for 1).

I don't know - I've just stopped caring about games outside of Trism, which I always play. Perhaps it's because I have a first gen model, which is not well compatible with some of the recent stuff.


Anyone else like me?

I haven't been buying games as often, but I haven't stopped buying games altogether. I've just been more selective. My most recent purchases were Ragdoll Blasters 2, Need For Speed: Undercover, and Frong. And when, or if, Mirror's Edge finally comes out, I'll buy that one too.
