I'm looking at PAYG phones and I saw the moto g and it looks nice, I want to get it but I don't like the idea of no SD card slot my carrier only has the 8gb model. would that be enough for installing Roms ect. ? but main question is, is it worth it to buy moto g ?

I own 8 GB version, of course you can install any rom you want.
And for me, definitely worth!
Buy it without worries, it's a great phone!

Memory is on "cons" list, but you can live without a SD Card (neither Nexus has it).
If you don't plan to install more than 1-2 heavy games (like asphalt), 8 GB is fine.
Remember that you'll have 50 GB free on google drive.

It'd be ok If it is the only heavy app.
About the game, you should check for a backup setting, you'd better write to game developers or (before) google search it.
