Quick Ipod Capacity Question

I am going to be buying a 4G Ipod Touch. I want to know if 8GB is enough for games and music? I already have 4GB of music I would transfer to it. Also what is the average space a game takes up? What is the highest?

Thank You.

If youre only gonna buy casual games, I guess it's enough. Rage is over 1gb unpacked, gt racing is over 1gb unpacked. Many other games are in the high hundred mbs. I have a 32gb 4th gen and I don't even have enough room xP.

On an 8 gig there is always some space (probably at least 1 gb) which holds the OS. Plus 4 gigs of music, doesn't leave much room for other apps. There will be some but you're gonna have to be selective.

I may have to get a 8GB.

What's the best deal I can get on a new 4G 32GB touch?

If you want a 3rd gen you can get it really cheap but the 4th gen 32 gb are all gonna be pretty close to $300.

Definitly a 32 gig. 4 gig of music?!?!? Pretty soon, considering the preloaded apps take up 1 gig, you have 3 gig of open space left. Have to account for pictures and such. Definitly get 32

I'll just have to get an 8GB.

Is 3GB enough for having Chaos Rings, Zenonia, Rimelands, Angry Birds, Final Fantasy, Aralon, Popular apps, etc at the same time?
