Recessions, like games, come and go. Logically, instead of saving money during a recession, you save it during the boom times so you would have money during a recession - when customer service is better and prices at bargain rates. People stop playing games? Like thats gonna happen. I personally have been getting into some of my previously loved games and trying to take them to higher levels - but would still be ready to buy if a new game intrigues me.
