Default what to get with $60 of GC

what games to buy. So basically i have $60 in GC to Bestbuy and am not sure what to blow them on. I was thinking video games but can't decide what would be a good investment. It can be for any of the 3 platforms. PC PS3 Wii. i was thinking of prototype.

your best bet is to go to a place that sells and buys second hand games a place like EBGames Canada, that way if you have older games that you don't play any more you can take them in and get credit towards a different game or two

Normally i would agree but i am pretty sure Eb games won't take a Best Buy Gift Card.

Buy the PC version and play it with a controller.

I played it with mouse/keyboard.. but it would be better with a controller and I don't have one :(

Oh shadowmeph, lol.

Yeah your best bet is to get a game since that is typically the least marked up thing in the store (only about a 10$ on most new games)
