....and don’t acquire new ones until you’ve mastered what you have. My video game buying habits have changed quite a bit since my “game of the week" days. Now, I focus on games that can be played over and over and over again, and I focus on mastering the games that I buy. Good targets include puzzle games, Multiplayer-intensive, and long, involved quest games; they maximize the value of your dollar. DLC is usually a big waste of money, and if you wait long enough, a new disk will eventually be released containing all the new stuff you missed out on at original retail price (or less).
