Worst Steam sale ever, bar none. Nobody tell me it's because I own everything because I don't. If you don't objectively see how this has been the worst major Steam sale to date then you haven't been following the past sales for the last few years.


don't worry
its my first steam sale (not counting the fall one which was actually better I think)
and this is pretty awful
the repeats are getting absurd
and it is insanely weighted towards strategy games

I am glad that I am not the only one going crazy that its just Quake 1 that's on sale for 75% off and not the Collection. I'd buy the Quake Collection for $7.49 but definitely not the original game for $2.49.

The only thing I'm hoping for is that Killing Floor goes back on 75% off and the DLC stays at 75% so I can finally buy the last few ones I need.

Anyone else voting for Dota 2?


While I don't care much for Dota 2 or the way it's being handled right now, I voted for it anyway. Wasn't it only 50% off as a (bi)daily deal a few days ago?

i'm not surprised
i was planning on picking up mass effect 1 and 2 for $10 and they were dicks (i know i missed it earlier)

I mean... I held out hope that they would start putting in some new games the next few days but I don't see it. My guess is the next five or so days are just going to be games that have already been put up for sale. I'm thinking they've cycled through everything by now but I'm sure that's not the case so you'll see stuff like... Gianna Sisters as a daily and uh... KOTOR as a flash, etc. Probably also have dailies for Snapshot and Closure, too.

In before Motoki and/or Mooby publicly threaten to ignore people-

Oh, too late. :cry:


Don't start. We just become BFFs and now you want to ruin the honeymoon? I'm hurt.

But seriously. If I want game X in Steam for whatever reasons that's my own god damned business and I don't care if other people don't like it or think it makes no sense. It's my money to spend or not spend how I want.

I'm not sure why this issue bugs some people so much.I don't try to tell other people where they should buy their games so it would be kind of nice to have the same respect.

OK, so what's with two (yes, 2) Toys R Us threads being stickied at the top of the "Video Game Deal" forum, and the Steam Thread not?? Those 2 threads together only get 19,679 views, while this one thread gets 351,669 and that's damn near just 2 weeks after having started (V6 roll-over) and with one of the biggest sales of the year currently going specific to that thread. wtf? What determines which threads get stickied?

Anyone who wants a 72-Hour guest pass to The Secret World, just PM me your email.

Just hold tight. I guarantee that it's a glitch. There's just no way that they decided to only have the first game on sale for 75% off.

They'll have it fixed soon.

If you don't objectively see how this has been the worst major Steam sale to date then you haven't been following the past sales for the last few years. Fortunately Amazon, GMG, and GG (lulz) have provided alternatives this winter sale season.


I blame the economist. Seriously.

I'm just glad I got my publisher packs before they sucked.

And before I had everything. :-P

Not voting for anything. Silent protest. Can't imagine there are people without Dota 2 yet nor would I enable them to make the colossal mistake of paying for it. Portal 2 and Counterstrike Derp have been on sale a bajillion times already.

Also I'm bitter GMG ran out of Alpha BROtocol keys.

It is. That is the reason why I voted on it, I want to see how mindless the average steam user is and if this is going to get on top 10 selling titles. Now that would be funny,:bouncy:

i'm an entry-level economist
and you are probably right
but it should also mean that the sales will be way better the last couple days
(get people to buy stuff that are holding out while getting as much as you can out of everyone else in the beginning)

If you guys keep bitching about how shitty this sale is, they will start charging us to add mods to our games.......

In before their economist reads this thread and takes that idea and runs with it....

No more funny than the people buying the Farcry package when the ala carte woulda saved them 7 bucks.

P.S. I don't have DOTA 2... but I figured with all those euro/pacific keys I saw on Steamgifts I'd vote for it for others :-)

Wasn't DOTA2 a flash or daily sale earlier for only 50% off? And now they're offering it as a potential 75% off in a user choice sale?
