Here's a fun game that will make you feel really good about yourself:

 

Flip through the Steam top-sellers list and find out how many pages into the list you have to go before you find a page where you don't own a single game. I got all the way to page 75, and I'm sure many of you will get even further, and therefore feel even better about yourselves than I feel about myself right now.

It won't win but it fits the description perfectly. Witcher 3 and Rust really seem like odd games to even have on that list. Both share a wide enough popularity that people wouldn't question your love for them.

 

Actually it's Witcher 1 on the list.  It's one of my personal favorite games, but it seems a lot of the people who loved 3 didn't like 1.

I voted for Gothic 2 in the latest poll.  The combat system is a bit clunky and hard to get used to.  The early part of the game can be unforgiving.  (stun locked by annoying enemies, etc)  Many of us who made it past those faults found a game we grew to love.

Witcher 1 was a fun game, but the combat system is a bit dated, and backtracking could be a bit of slog.  I can see why someone who has onyl played the third might enjoy the second more than the first.

I could never get into Witcher 1, I tried multiple times. 2 was so much better.

I thought Witcher 1 was fine. To me I liked 1 decently enough, 2 was a bit better, and 3 blew them both out of the water.

The witcher 1 beginning is a little rough, picks up once you get to the first area. I really enjoyed all three, even played the 2nd one through twice to see both paths which is something I very rarely do.

Oh, and for the record, I *prefer* RC Cola! #FightMe

RC cola is fine if only for the existence of CR RCs.  Crown Royal Royal Cola. 
Pepsi products in general aren't the most awesome to use as a mixer... and that's almost line-wide, no matter what the kid who tried to put rotgut vodka in their Mountain Dew says. 

 

Coca Cola Classic is better, especially if it's made with actual sugar. 

But, in many cases, RC Cola is better because it's less carbonated... you don't really want your whiskey and cola to be super fizzy. 

Faygo is great, but Juggalos kinda ruined it's public perception. 

Plus, it's much more of a "local" sort of product. It'd probably be hell trying to find Faygo anywhere outside of the midwest.

I played the Witcher series in order and I couldn't imagine going back to 1 now. I understand why some Witcher fans prefer it over the seemingly endless dodge-rolling combat of 2 & 3.

Oh no he's back already! The acidity of cola gives me an upset stomach, so I don't drink it. Light-colored soft drinks are fine, so are most hot foods and most alcohols, it's just poop-colored cancer water that I stay away from.

 

I thought Faygo was Yiddish slang for a gay person...

Maybe more local than you realize... I live in the middle of the Midwest and I've never heard of it.

According to the website the closest place is 166 miles away.

Yeah it ended and I don't believe it worked on Cuphead, that was one of the exclusions but I could be wrong. Really dumb to end it before the sale concluded IMO. I don't know how they profit aside from mystery boxes since Reddit banned them and there's no good place where their deals are posted.

I had it working on Cuphead, I just didn't pull the trigger then. Wishing I had now. Oh well.

So with all the money I have been saving on not buying games on Steam sales or anywhere else I picked up this little guy...

P.S. Comcast has cemented my decision not to buy anything this sale with this:

" You've used 90% of your data usage plan As of 12-26-2017, you have 99 GB remaining of your 1024 GB Internet data usage plan for this calendar month. As a courtesy, we give you 2 months of complimentary overages. Your courtesy month balance is 2"

 

Was asking the brohs a couple of days ago in TheHangOut for AAA fakeybro suggestions but Fuck Comcast screwed the pooch on that one.

1 TB? Isn't that like one season of 4K television, basically? And people are freaking out about net neutrality? 

Data caps on a network make no sense. Network quality goes down not with quantity, but with congestion. All my devices are set to download large files overnight when the network has very little traffic and downloading doesn't do any harm to others. Yet network caps conform to Title II while all reasonable and actually effective ways to maintain health of a network don't ...

I think last time I did night downloads was when I was still on dial-up, cuz no point doing so. Must have been like late 90s when downloading games from Steam Digital River or maybe some random less-legal sites.

more like 10GB per hour. So 260GB for 26 episodes..

Third world countries don't need internet connection restrictions if half the country doesn't have or can't afford internet

I played them in order too, and I agree with you on this point, but the dodge-rolling trolling was way worse in 2 than 3. The third game's expanded options made it a little more viable to tackle multiple simultaneous opponents in different ways, but I found that far too often I was stuck in set-piece combat scenarios in 2 where I had to roll-attack-roll-attack ad nauseum

Well, net neutrality is a big deal on its own, but let's face it, if America weren't obsessed with "freedom" and deregulation of industry, internet access would be treated like a utility and not a commodity and regulated just like electrical and water services are presently. Access would be nearly universal and the government would ensure a base level of quality of service and prevent price-gouging. The disbanding of net neutrality is the simply the canary in the coalmine demonstrating the current administration's first step on a path leading in the direction of less access to crappier and more expensive service.

I got an email for it this morning, but no coupon code. That's weird.

Is it still worth playing if you only have the base game and none of the dlc?

Yes, there's plenty of content in the base version of The Division.  The recent update even added a new high-level PvE zone which is good for end-game loot hunting.
