Not too much, but it'll last me

BlazBlue, Alpha Protocol and Dragon Age Origins.  It's not too many games, but BlazBlue is an online fighter so i'll be able to play it for months, if not years.  Alpha Protocol and Dragon Age are RPGs so they'll last a while and i'll probably play through them multiple times.

Not if it's in moderation

I think that if you consider yourself a "real" gamer, you should own more legit copies than used copies.  I've got a couple of used games but I usually buy them new, even if it means I have to wait a few months until the price is decent.  You should want to support people who make good games so that more good games get made.  At the least, don't buy them used from Gamestop.  Those guys are human garbage at its finest.

A "real" gamer who owns nothing but used copies of games sounds like a music 'fan" who doesn't own a single legit copy of albums that his favorite band makes.

Job hunt

I'm looking for a job.  I won't be buying too many games.  My old school job cut our hours to 12 a week so i'm seeing micro paychecks.  I feel like I was getting more money back in high school than what i'm at now.  My per hour is good, but at 12 hours a week I can barely pay my bills.  Hopefully something comes through... soon.

Both

I'm going to be playing Lost Odyssey, Prince of Persia, Burnout Paradise and Tales of Vesperia well into 2009.  However, I am looking forward to SF4 once the price is in the $40s and i'll probably buy Alpha Protocol and Star Ocean 4 on day one if the reviews are good.
