Feedbackula - Steam Sale Sourness

The Autumn Steam Sale is now on, and surprisingly not everybody is happy about it. Johnny stops browsing for cheap games for a minute to sift through the comments.

Yeah, I've bought a bunch of games on Steam I haven't played yet. However, I didn't buy them simply because they were on sale. I actually already wanted them. I added all the games into my wishlist and then I get notified when they're on sale and then I buy them. Simple. Easy. Save money. Get the games I want.

Now if only I had time to play them all...

Most of you will probably want to kill me, but these are some of the more popular games I've purchased that I still haven't played at all:

Crysis

Deus Ex: Game of the Year Edition

Don't Starve

Fez

Limbo

Mark of the Ninja

Mass Effect 1 & 2

Civ V

Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed

Terraria

Torchlight II

Trine 2

and XCOM: Enemy Unknown


I know. I know. This is the curse that is the Steam sale. Knowing I already have them makes it so much worse.

@iBuSHiDo I didn't get Limbo yet. I should probably do something about that right now.

Deus EX and Crysis. You HAVE to play those two. They're just legendary. Don't worry Crysis has almost nothing in common with Crysis 2 and 3. You're gonna have fun.

I hope console gamers have as much fun touching their games as we have playing them.

I have a tendency to buy games during a Steam sales because the deals are just too good to resist. I usually end up playing them for 10 minutes or so, then never touching the game again. Hell, I bought Allen Wake way back in the spring sale for $3 I believe...still haven't played it, lol.

For any nay-sayers, check out the spread sheet below of all the Steam games I've gotten over the years, it shows you how I would have spent at LEAST $2200 MORE on the same games if I paid CURRENT (not launch) retail price.

@IceDDZ You still have paid whatever $$$ you paid for those games. (I didn't click on your spreadsheet). Just because the games weren't the price they were at launch, doesn't take away from the fact that you are spending $. We are all guilty of spending more when we see a good sale. That was the point of some people "complaining" about Steam sales.

I have over 400 Steam games and a lot of them I bough impulsively due to great prices and never touched them or even installed them, lol.

It's kind of like grocery stores having buy 2 get 1 free sales. You still have to buy 2. Sigh, I think I'm drunk...lalalla.

That was a funny episode!

About that boxart/touching comment. I saved every box, insert, instruction manual, jewel case, and promo card from every pc game I played back in the '90s thinking I'd make a bundle on Ebay in 20 years when people began to look back nostalgically at their youth. I thought wrong. The shipping would cost more than their worth!

Digital downloads are great but like "the_hunger" said, we need some competition to Steam or these great sales are going to be nothing but a fond memory. GOG (Good Old Games). Check it out.

Move along; nothing to see here, people. Just a long, flattering Steam commercial. I wish that they would do the same love-fest for Gog.com or some other company that has a bit more respect for customer ownership rights. Steam really could use some competition in the digital distribution market (besides EA).

Is this website Gamespot, or Valvespot? or maybe Gabe-spot, Valve did something? queue the angels and heralds! I swear, that company could write into their EULA a universal, i.e. male or female writ of prima nocta for GabeN and it would be hailed as a brilliant move.

@jpnelson82 Obviously Gamespot is on Valve's paycheck...and if you ask me, it was about freaking time too, Valve is abit late with the pay compared to the other companies like EA, Bioware, Rockstar, etc, but better late than never.

I'm on to you Rican, I suspect that you might be one of these "internet trolls" that I've heard about on the news....

I like the arguments condemning steam for encouraging you to buy games you sometimes won't play. Being caught up in the materialism and such. But then the very opposite point is being able to touch and look at the things you bought. What is more materialistic than that?

@Busta Mebbe that was me, if so I wasn't condemning anything, it's just a fact. Example: I just bought the Commandos Collection because I have some vague memory of really enjoying Commandos 2 and the Commandos games are $0.99 right now.

I'll probably never play it. But hey, there it is if I ever decide I wanna. And with it costing less than a candy bar, why not? Like I said, it's not like I have to worry about waking up one day to find out my PC games won't work anymore with the next generation of PC hardware.

I don't see what's so "negative" about acknowledging the reality that I bought it and probably won't ever get around to playing it. But whatever, if you look at those "negative" comments you can see they were having to try pretty hard this episode.

@plaintomato @Busta How often do you play old games that you already beat years ago....well you said yourself, probably never. Also, there isn't a Steam game in my library that doesn't work, some need a little tweaking here and there but I've never encountered a non playable game sold through Steam, and compatibility rarely comes into effect because people rarely update their OS, and anybody with some sense does some research before hand to make sure their games, apps, drivers, etc, will be compatible beforehand.
