If I can get a good deal on Gyromancer and DeathSpank I am happy. Nice thing is that even if I do not get those I bet there will be stuff that I buy and love more then what I am hoping for. Last year I had never heard of Nation Red or Kings Bounty and just bought them because of the large discounts and I put dozens of hours in to both.

I've got a whole bunch of things on my wish list, but I suppose the MAIN thing I'm hoping for is a 50% off or more on Just Cause 2.

I would also be happy with deals on:
Spoiler


And I'm sure there will be games that will be bought because they are cheap and I end up loving them (like getting Shatter for $2.50 during the Summer sale).

EDIT:

It's been as low as $2-$2.50. But that was only for a few hours on Halloween last year. During a normal sale I can't recall seeing it for less than $10.

I wouldn't mind finally getting CS Source again. I had it on my old steam acct before I misplaced the password and couldn't retrieve it. Something like that is almost a given on these sales.

The entire Orange Box hit $10 one time. TF2 hit $2.50 a couple times, but only for a couple hours each time.

Tag, though I think both this topic and the steam topic should have been 1.


Well, we must have a discussion thread in the PC forum. But deals go in the deal forum, so the two threads must forever remain apart. It'd be cool if a single thread could exist in both forums simultaneously though.

No Thanksgiving week sale yet? Come on Steam, you can do it.

Thats pretty likely, it retails for 20$, and its Valves game so when they have it on sale its usually a really good price even tho the game itself is worth a 60$ game.

they usually have it on sale during their major sales. The Orange Box for 10$ was one of the first deals I took advantage of because of CAG. Loved this website ever since.

Nice find MXRider. If you have a Mac, could you just register the game with Steam then download the Mac version? I know if you bought the game through steam, you can get both versions.

I spent so much with Steam last year and have a huge backlog of games since 1995. This year will only add more to it. :)

A gaming PC is cheap these days for those of you who mentioned you don't have and would like one. IF you could afford a 360/PS3 especially in their first couple years you can afford a gaming PC. There's many articles online on how to build a budget gaming PC. Plus with components getting cheaper and the latest video card war between Nvidia and AMD/ATI there's never been a better time.

Yep! TF2 is a SteamPlay title which means that it works on OSX and Windows.

Did the sales start on Thanksgiving day last year and go through the weekend, or did they start earlier in the week?

So is this thread gonna replace the epic Steam Christmas Deals!! and Steam Thanksgiving Deals!! etc threads? Cause that would be kind cool. We could just have one big permanent thread for it all.

That is certainly my intention. No need to make new threads when we can keep it all in one place.

Steam has 3 big sales this year. The summer sale, Black Friday weekend sale, and holiday sale (Dec. 24-January). Read post # 2 for more info.

Wasn't holiday sale a little longer last year? I could have sworn it started a few days before Christmas.

Regardless, I wasn't around for the BF sale last year. Was it as big as the holiday sale?

I have just added a section on free games to the OP. Here's what I chose to include:

Free Stuff
There are several free games and mods on Steam. These are a few choice ones; you can find a full list here. Note that free games are not permanently attached to your Steam account like actual purchases would be. You'll need to manually download a game again from the website if you uninstall it.
