Go for the 5th gen, the 4th is falling fast.

I'm just so sick of breathing!

5th, 4th is not compatible with some apps now and it's weak.

5th gen no question unless you're only going to use it as an mp3 player. After iOS 5.x..4th gen just doesn't have enough ram.. Its was like night and day when I traded my old 4th for the 5th gen...

Get the fifth gen. Dont worry. It will last you a long time. Fourth gen is almost obsolete.

4th is obsolete for gaming.

Get the 5th, or better yet an iPad if you can afford it and want the device primarily for gaming.
