Are .US domains worth it?

As the title says. I own a few myself, and they’re pretty nice, but the thing is.. My friends saying they’re not worth it, and I keep paying for them, so I wonder if I should stop paying for them, or save them for later use or auction.

I own and, a friend of mine said that .us domains are good, but I started doubting it. Both domains are soon to expire. Actually only hotsale. Gamewire got a while before it does.

So what you think guys? .US domains worth it? Worth to use compared to .net .org etc?
