Since I don't know what games you already own, or how much money you have, I am going to say just burn the money. Let the purity of the flames burn away the consumer desires that have been programmed into you from your Consumer society.

You should first state what consoles you have, my friend. Then, we can talk.

Fire Emblem Awakening seems to be *the* game right now.

...OK, Dead Space 3. But the reception to that seems mixed.

I would by DmC, Fire Emblem, I would wait for Sim City. Antichamber is pretty great if you are into that sort of thing. Proteus is interesting. I thought the Cave was better than the GB crew did. That's everything that comes to mind.

Well, according to your profile, your favourite genre is FPS and your favourite theme is sci-fi.

So, my suggestion is Hard Reset.

BTW, it really is a great game.

Buy a bunch of older games you may have missed out on instead of one newer one. I find I often get as much enjoyment out of a game from five years ago as I do from more recent fare.

Trade your gift cards for meth (Or buy Fire Emblem).

Taco Bell and Meth are very tempting

Depending on where you live, you might be able to get both in the same parking lot.
