Live Cheap because the reasons stated above of sounds like Live Strong and it applies to everything not just video games.

It can't be Play Cheap... The amount of sealed games sitting on peoples shelves goes right against that :)

"Live Cheap" parodies Lance Armstrong's wristband, which is funnier, but "Play Cheap" represents this site better.

While I would love a mockery of Live Strong, Play Cheap does sound better. So I voted for that one.

Play cheap. More tied in to the site,and "live cheap" sounds a little, I don't know, trashy.

I'm planning on ordering a large number and giving them away for free to any CAGs who want one. I'll probably ask CAGs to send us a SASE (self-addressed stamped envelope)....

there should be neither option. Play cheap, sorta refers to "playing cheap" like camping, or spawn killing.
Live Cheap would be better, but it still makes us sound frugal, and not really into video games as much as we are into red light specials.
Saying you're really good at Borderlands is the equivalent to saying you suck at videogames.

That puts a genuine closed parenthesis at the end of my colon. :)

Interesting, and I understand what they are for, but I'm not a fan of these bracelets.

I'd rather see some CAG gashopons (cheapy and wombat bobble heads?) or on the flip-side, something actually useful that could be gaming-related (CAG styluses? CAG PSP/UMD cases?).

Just my $0.02 cent. Or 3yen...

I like Live Cheap. CAG's not only "Play Cheap" but we pass cheapness along all aspects of our lives. "Live Cheap" is the better choice.

Play Cheap... Play Cheap means I like cheap games while Live Cheap implies that I buy a lot of shitty stuff and live in my own filth. That's a little too cheap for my blood.

it was probably in there because I'm a flaming homosexual.

From a branding standpoint the choice is perfectly clear. What does living have to do with playing games? I understand the "living as a cheap ass gamer" or the take on the "Livestrong" branding.

But since this site is about video games, and playing said games that you have purchased at a cheap price, I think
Play Cheap is the better choice.
