I recently bought a $20 card so I could get Pacman CE:DX. 
 
I have 10 bucks left on my card and am looking for a way to spend it. 
 
Any of you guys have suggestions for how to best spend my 10 PNS bucks?

After Burner: Climax is half off ($4.99) until next week. You could get that and some other $5 game.

I remember hearing some buzz about Trine, would that be worth the 10?

I also got a $20 PSN card to buy Pacman. Debated between Scott Pilgrim and Afterburner. Scott Pilgrim is not a GREAT game, but the soundtrack is amazing and it's fun with friends. I chose that. Also, did I mention the soundtrack is awesome?

@TheGreatGuero: I would if it wasn't 15 =/ 
 
It'll probably be the next game I get a fresh card for, but only have 10 to work with at the moment.

Crescent Pale Mist. I think it's like $6 and kept me entertained for days. It can get pretty addicting and the boss fights are crazy intense.

You could always save the other $10 for now...

@allenibrahim: I love the soundtrack, but the single player portion of the game is just not that good...

Critter Crunch is fun, not sure how much it is though.

The only correct answer is Boston Pack 01 for Rock Band.
 
Unless you get crazy and decide to buy some awesome throwback PSX games, like Spyro, Crash, FFT, or the like. Those run about $5-6, so you could maybe even manage to pick up 2 of them.
 
Those are really your only options, though, unless you're into SSFIV (COSTUMES!), or are super lame and don't have the Jedi Temple Pack for Star Wars: TFU yet or something.

If memory serves correctly, I think Joe Danger is on sale for about $10.

well... with $10 you could have gotten (as the news is coming in), you could have gotten Mirror's Edge and Sim City 4 Deluxe for $5.35  ; plus as free gifts you get Bad Company 2:Vietnam and the Specact skin pack.    FOR PC! The $10 coupon at the eastore is for PC only. There was a $15 PS3/Xbox360 coupon too, you needed more points. I'm a PC person.
 
Check out this thread:  http://www.cheapassgamer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=278843
 
Basically, in summary, you sign up with a site called "recyclebank" . You watch and play stupid things for "points". Once you get 175 points, you can get an EA Store $10 coupon. But it's not only a $10 coupon. It doesn't just subtract $10. If you added to your cart:  Mirror's Edge, Sim City 4 deluxe, Bad Company 2:Vietnam and the Bad Company 2 Specact kit; you could get all that for $5.35 .   [you get Mirror's Edge and Sim City 4 deluxe via EA download manager and the BC2 stuff with a code] . Initially it's $35+ but when you put in the code, you see the final price of $5.35
 
Anyway. People may think "security issue" or "privacy issue" with respect to recycle bank. NO. Just make a visit to  fakenamegenerator.com and use fake names and addresses. Use a non-main email address. You may not want to use a throw-away email (like mailinator.com) . But don't use a main one. When you go to EA's store to use the code, login with the email address tied to your Battlefield account, if you have Battlefield.
 
However, right now, some people are claiming that they don't see the $10 EA store coupon code, once they get the 175 points (at another site:  
http://hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1573226 ). I don't know.
 
I got 180 points and got the EA Store coupon, and used it.  Mirror's Edge and Sim City 4 deluxe were each 4.99 earlier this week on Steam Sales.
 
The deal could have been done multiple times by making multiple accounts and watching/playing the same things at the recycle site. Just use fakenamgenerator for a new name and maybe after the first you wouldn't mind a mailinator, after seeing how it works.
 
 
Oh WTF, this thread is in the PS3 store forum? WTF! I saw it on the main forum and thought general. The contrast sucks to read the PS3 part. Oh well. For consoles there is the $15 coupon. I don't know if you'll be able to get it because of the high amount of points needed. Check the cheapassgamer forum link for advice.

You could get Everyday Shooter, I still fire that up every so often. But you would have to like dual joystick shooters.
