I participated in the Secret Santa thing at work this year.

Got a $20 gift card from GameStop. Wohoo!

WTF should I do with it?

Do you even own a console? Most GameStops don't carry PC games anymore.

They do have a PC section. Its usually a small shelf though. They always have new games on day 1, I've ran to my local Gamestop a few times on launch day for a game.

They have a website and offer games starting at $19.99.

I wish Populous was a PC game.

:lol2: I can't believe people buy those things. If I smell apple pie in my house there better be an apple pie I can eat cooking ;).

As far as the gift card, I don't know. The only thing I have bought at gamestop/EB in the past 5 years was Red Dead Redemption when they sold it for $25 on a one day special. Everything else I generally go through Amazon for Console, and mostly digital distributors for PC games.

There is a Nintendo conversion but Populous was very much an Amiga ,Atari ST and DOS game.

Does your local drug dealer accept gift cards? See if you can cash it in with him...at least then you won't be left with $0.09 on the card you can't use.

If not, there's always Bicycle Bob Saget. He'll even accept bacon as payment.
