games you wished you'd waited on (or not)?

Hi guys, just a quick couple of Q's......

1) what games did you pay full price for, but wished you'd known to wait for either for a price drop or lite version release, or not buy at all?

2) what games did you pay full price for, and were happy even though they had a price drop or lite version release later on?

3) what games did you wait for the lite versions, and were grateful you did?

Mine are -

1) fastlane, icopter, idracula, skythunder, zoneworrior, tikitowers - i still like these games, but would prefer the Lite versions as i only play a level or so at most on them. or even a $1 price would have made me happy.

2) cromag, x-planes, toybots, zombieville - most excellent. happy paying the full price.

3) sway, SW force unleashed, rolando, katamari, - enjoyable, and gives me a good idea of what i'll upgrade full price to. The power of the 'Lite'

1. None yet. I'm relatively new to the idevice.

2. Theseus. It was worth it at the full prize, so I wasn't too sorry I missed out on the sale.

3. Zentomino. I'm glad there was a lite, I don't think I would've gotten it if I didn't try the game for myself. Subway Shuffle is probably the other one I will get, now that I'm done with the lite version.

1. Brothers in arms only because I only played it twice and wasn't into it. I have no plans to really play it again.

2. The Quest, Supermarket Mania, Let's Golf, G.I. Joyride, Chocolatier, Agency Wars, Dr. Arugula, Oregon Trail, Virtual Villagers 2: The Lost Children, Touchsports Tennis, 3D BrickBreaker, Ace Tennis, Monopoly, Westward and Chocolate Shop Frenzy

3. Rolando which was horribly boring and a disappointment. Deleted it immediately and Diamond Islands because it made me realize I could never get the full version.

Hmmm.....I try to make the best of any situation but some things deserve deletion. Here are a few of mine in no particular order.

- Billy Frontier ( I am not a fan of games where the character moves for me )
- Cromag Rally ( fell short on just about everything to me )
- Attack From The Dead ( I felt claustrophobic playing that game since the main character is stuck in an imaginary column )
- Rolando ( I just don't like it haha )
