    Good Show guys! Dollar to playtime amount is a good way to think about games before you buy them. I try to wait for the $30 or less price on most games and 95% of the time I buy with Amazon/GS/BB credit.

    In this economy its good to be cheap. But I will make exceptions, for example GTA V will be a full price, paid pre-order just so we can all play co-op.
