1) What one Steam purchase you made during this sale are you the most pleased with? Why?
Probally Red Nation or Zombie bowling. There were a lot of games that were cheap and great deals from the sale....but I and others knew about many of them. The best games to come from the sale were the ones like these which I/Others had no clue were good games.

2) What one Steam purchase from this sale are you least pleased with? Why?
At the moment there are none, but im wondering if ill second think the TellTale pack. $50 was a lot to spend and I wonder if Tales of Monkey Island and Sam and Max are all I play from it....could have got those 2 series on sale way cheaper.

3) Are there any daily deals you regret not purchasing?
Possibly Red Faction Gurilla.

4) How much did you spend on this sale? (Estimates are fine.)
$230ish

5) What will you do differently next year?
Wait till the final day to buy anything and not get my hopes up for huge deals on the final day.

6) What game would you most like to see on Steam?
Like I said above board games like TTR, Carc and Lost Cities

7) What would you pay for it?
$2.00-$10.00 a game

8) Does this guy work for Steam, or what?
If he does he better hook me up with some discounts!

9) Where's his hair?
He shaved it all and plastered it to his junk to create a giant genital afro.

1) What one Steam purchase you made during this sale are you the most pleased with? Why?

The Eidos Collector Pack because it is a mega deal and is has a ton of games I like and love in it such as the Deus Ex and Hitman games. Not to mention I can try out Batman AA, Mini Ninjas, Thief, and other games I heard good things about.

2) What one Steam purchase from this sale are you least pleased with? Why?

None so far, but that's because I haven't played them all yet. I hear Infernal and a few other Eidos games are garbage, but they were essentially free in the pack.

3) Are there any daily deals you regret not purchasing?

A TON! Missed out on Mass Effect, Jade Empire, Max Payne, CivIV Complete, and a few other games I've been wanting that were perfectly priced. Those are the biggest regrets though and I wasn't online for a week so I would've bought them if I saw them. :bomb:

4) How much did you spend on this sale? (Estimates are fine.)

~$60

5) What will you do differently next year?

Save lots of money in preparation for this crazy sale!

6) What game would you most like to see on Steam?

System Shock series, Fallout series, KOTOR II, more board games (Catan, Carcassonne, Ticket to Ride, etc.) a bunch of old Xbox games (Otogi series for example), tons more old and hard to find games/previously unavailable on PCs.

7) What would you pay for it?

$5-10 depending on the game.

8) Does this guy work for Steam, or what?

Nah, he freaking runs Steam!

9) Where's his hair?

Caught in the Matrix.

1) What one Steam purchase you made during this sale are you the most pleased with? Why?

Street Fighter IV. Been playing none stop. For $10 how could you NOT be pleased?

Burnout Paradise Complete
Max Payne Complete

The Steam Holiday 2009 CAG Survey (Version 2.0--Final Version!)

1) What one Steam purchase you made during this sale are you the most pleased with? Why?

Puzzle Quest. It's the single thing I miss most about my Xbox 360, so getting it for $5 was awesome. Really wish it had the expansion as well though.

2) What one Steam purchase from this sale are you least pleased with? Why?

Defense Grid, though it may end up being Burnout Paradise (installing it now). It's not a terrible game, but I purchased C&C later in the sales period and would rather have saved my $$$ on Defense Grid (even though it was only $2.49).

3) Are there any daily deals you regret not purchasing?

Easily Street Fighter IV. I was on the fence about it and tried to jump on it too late. For $10 it was a steal and would have been fun to just mess around with it, since I used to play SF2 all the time on SNES back in the day. If anyone happens to have an unused steam key for sale, that would be awesome.

4) How much did you spend on this sale? (Estimates are fine.)

$49.29, though it goes up to $69.27 if you include Torchlight and Last Remnant, which I bought the week before the sale started.

5) What will you do differently next year?


Nothing. I waited until the last day to get any non daily deals, so I already had a sound plan. Maybe do a better job of deciding on purchases so I don't miss out on stuff like I did with SF4, but it's not a huge deal since I've got tons to play.

6) What game would you most like to see on Steam?

Baldur's Gate Complete Collection or KOTOR 2

7) What would you pay for it?

$10 for the collection and $5 for KOTOR 2

8) Does this guy work for Steam, or what?

If saying yes results it more awesome Steam deals, then yes


9) Where's his hair?

Being used to knit a sweater since he is too poor after the Steam sales to afford one.

1) What one Steam purchase you made during this sale are you the most pleased with? Why?
Borderlands Zombie Island DLC.The DLC was awesome and it really got me into the game again so I started a second playthrough with my soldier to get him to level 50.


2) What one Steam purchase from this sale are you least pleased with? Why?
Can't comment on this yet. I haven't even downloaded over half the stuff I bought but I don't see myself being displeased with any of it.


3) Are there any daily deals you regret not purchasing?
Nope.


4) How much did you spend on this sale? (Estimates are fine.)
~ $100


5) What will you do differently next year?

Wait until the last day before buying anything to make sure it doesn't show up as a daily deal.


6) What game would you most like to see on Steam?
Most games that I want are already on Steam. But I would like them to get Splinter Cell Pandora Tomorrow. That is the only SC game I don't have on Steam.


7) What would you pay for it?
$5


8) Does this guy work for Steam, or what?
We all work for Steam. All hail our glorious Steam overlords!


9) Where's his hair?
Hair is overrated.

I'd really love to see the Quest for Glory or Police Quest Collections on Steam. Some of my best memories are from those games.

In terms of deals, I wouldn't mind seeing The Witcher showing up later (and cheaper) or Mass Effect at $5 (or lower) again. The biggest thing I'd love to see is DA:O Deluxe at $35 or less.

How did you get L4D2 and MW2 for free? Anyhow, here are my recent purchases. It was hell trying to resist buying about 10 more things during the super sale but I already have so much crap to play that it would have just been a waste:

Anyway, I'm kind of surprised that no one was interested in doing a PitBoss game of Civ4, with a ton of people picking it up I thought we'd get a game going, but oh well.


Me too!! I'm honestly really disappointed! Literally no one cares except us. Frankly, it seems like it's pretty amazing that you even got me to care from the lack of interest everyone else is showing. :) Maybe we need to check out a Civ IV thread. Maybe there's a Civ IV thread on CAG here?

I still haven't even gone through the tutorial, but I totally want in on PitBoss.

6) What game would you most like to see on Steam?

Disciples Series.
Wizardry Series


Actually, Disciples II is on here. Did you already know? I bought it and also the GoG version cause the freaking Steam version is flaky with Windows 7. Boo.

___________

Should we put a link to the holiday thread in the top post? I don't know if it's necessary or useful really but sometimes it's done.

I was totally eager for more deals when I woke up this morning. Then I remembered it was over. :) I've spent a truly frightful amount of money, however, so I'm content to wait for weekend/mid-week deals (that I will probably not be interested in). I wanna be thrifty for a while now.

Valve Complete and Super ID Software Pack ~$110

~45 games comes out to ~$2.45 a game. Granted a few are Half-Life Lost Coast and Commander Keen.

Unfortunately, this also means I'll have to get a new computer because I'm fairly certain L4D2 wont run on an my MBAs Intel GMA intergrated GPU. Not to mention the size constraints.

You can install his game on your PC, yes. But only if you use his account on your PC. Just remember to log off his account on your PC when he is ready to install Torchlight under his account on his PC (I'm assuming you guys are using separate PC's).

Like most I would have to say that there are many older, perhaps lesser known titles that I would like to see on Steam. GoG is a great website but I feel that they charge too much for many of the titles they have available.

Also, (please don't bite my head off) I'm not sure how titles that are Games for Windows Live work with Steam. For example, if I buy Dawn of War II on Steam would I still be able to link it to my Live account?


I don't think anyone answered your question. Yes, if you get Dawn of War II on Steam, it integrates with Games for Windows Live and the achievements, etc. are tied your Live ID/Gamertag.

I just did it myself.

1) What one Steam purchase you made during this sale are you the most pleased with? Why?
Won't know until I play them, but happy that the Lucasarts Adventure Pack & Eidos Pack got great prices.

2) What one Steam purchase from this sale are you least pleased with? Why?

Shattered Horizon - Though I'm pleased with the purchase, I wish they would release a single-player update instead of using it in 'future titles'.

3) Are there any daily deals you regret not purchasing?

Armored Princess (didn't know there was no domestic retail version), Burnout Paradise (self-control won out)

4) How much did you spend on this sale? (Estimates are fine.)

$133.72
Spoiler


5) What will you do differently next year?

Don't get so pumped for the final day's deals (if they follow the same format).

6) What game would you most like to see on Steam?
Most of my wishlist consists of classic games better suited for a GOG release with great extras and support...so, I'd like to see more $2 blowouts.

7) What would you pay for it?
N/A, $2

8) Does this guy work for Steam, or what?
No. When you work for someone, theypay you.

9) Where's his hair?

Only reason im not up for a a pitboss game is half because im always terrified of playing online with others and being horrible and second because my PC has so little space on the HD at the moment. If I order a new PC in the next week or so ill have a new awesome 1 tb drive though which will give me plenty of space! Ill get past my fears and just play a game with you guys if your still up for it.

I had a similar problem. Tell him to make sure the game is completely uninstalled, then switch the server he has set for his steam downloads and then redownload and reinstall.

It's gonna be awhile till we get a game going, lots of options and stuff that we'd need to figure out and I'd have to get one of my spare clunkers kitbashed back into operation. If we had a ton of interest, it'd probably be about a week before we started.

I'll play. How many people do we need?


Awesome!

A small game would be 6-8 players, a midsized game like 9-12 and a large game 13-16. If we could get a full 16 person game going, that would be pretty killer.
