The games you will not play anymore.

No doubt that every iOS device owner possesses dozens of games. However, as the time goes by, for various reasons(out of date, loss interests, bugs etc.) some of them we barely got hooked and don't want to play anymore. Thus how do you dispose the games you're already unwilling to play?
Delete them for the sake of storage or just let them stay?

The rumour goes that the apple games could be sold on ebay? Anybody ever make that?

It depends on how bad they are - most I will delete whenever I do a clear-out of bad apps. Although I will keep some for that off chance I may decide to play it :S

I usually delete the apps I don't like to save space

So far I never deleted apps that I bought. But I have deleted many free apps. All that Farm/Restaurant/etc Story, Zombie Cafe, Smurfs Village, that kind of games.

I delete them off my iPod the second I finish the game unless it has a decent multiplayer. Not interested in replaying campaigns. Also, if the game is even slightly boring, it's gone. I've never deleted a paid game off of iTunes though, so I have 600+ paid apps now on iTunes. Don't have a single free app. Space is always a problem since I spend $15 weekly on new titles, even with a 32 GB.

Many free apps are useless, boring and with a load of pesky ads. Delete without second thought.

With games only costing $1 I find myself buying hundreds of them a year. I usually delete most games within a day, there are only a small handful of apps I keep on my phone. I only have 3 screens filled up at most times max.

If the game is outdated or become boring for me, i'll just stop playing for a while and then when someday i wanna try it again, i'll play again. If the game is full of bugs so that i get annoyed, ok i will definitely delete it.
