    In chronological order of when I got them:

    Dinner with Moriarty
    Dweep
    Tileworld (freeware)
    Rocknor's Bad Day
    Aargon 2 Deluxe
    RocketMania Deluxe
    Fish Fillets (freeware)
    Avernum 1 - 3
    Oasis


    My wife got a few:

    Snood
    Ricochet: Lost Worlds
    Bejeweled 2


    The interesting thing about Ricochet: I thought she wouldn't go for it because it wasn't cute and cartooney. But she really liked the "industrial" graphic style, which surprised me.

    Any future shareware game purchases will have to wait until I get tired of Oasis. What a nifty little timekiller that is!

    I don't own any, but I may purchase Mount and Blade today. That game is seriously addictive!

    Pretty short list, may have picked up some others like ClashNSlash if didn't already get full versions when ran em. My last AAA purchase was Doom 3, little on store shelves look interesting anymore.

    Some games have come very close (platapus, dweep) but I have always resisted. If I had more money I'd definately buy more.

    I have a whole bunch. A few of these were donated to me for one reason or another but many i bought

    teenage lawn mower
    pretty much all of hamumu's stuff
    heavy weapon
    zuma
    strange adventures in infinite space
    crimsonland
    ultratron/puppytron
    alien flux
    dudester
    drod : journey to the rooted hold
    digipool
    superstar chefs
    snood
    jewel quest
    mahjongg quest

    ...and no doubt a number of games I've forgotten to mention...

    BUT! What I find really really interesting looking through this list (other than the fact that clearly way too many of you are still only potential Aargon customers) is that there are a number of good games listed here that I'd never heard of. Same in the cream of the crop indies thread. And Im someone who really follows online/downloadable games closely and knows a lot about the industry. Just imagine how unknown these games are to the average typical consumer. It just goes to show how lacking in exposure much of our stuff is and how getting the word out is soooo important.

    I've only bought two: Gish (which I love, but I hate the way I can't pick any level to play once completing it) and Hamsterball (which is awesome, amazing presentation).

    I also got Puzzle Monkey for my GF, she really loves it, and so do I. I never thought Sokoban could be implemented so solidly!

    My downloadable game purchases:

    Alien Flux
    Best Friends
    Break Quest
    Fitznik
    Hopmon
    Jets'n'Guns
    Lost Idols
    Mage Bros
    Mutant Storm
    Platypus
    Space Tripper
    Star Monkey

    It's been ages since I bought a new AAA game (No, wait, I bought - and loved - Tron 2.0 eighteen months ago). Most of my other purchases are bargain bin games and the odd thing for my N64/Gamecube.
