Don't do it...I put 14 hours into it so far since release date.
Did you stop cold at 14 hours?
Or are you still going at it + playing?

Sounds good thanks for the advice! I will start following this thread as much as I can and grab some deals. I'll start taking a look at the front page now and try to grab a couple sub $5 games.
If it's sub-$5 and that sub-$5 price is not at a percent off, you're still paying full MSRP price.
You go by percentages-off and check it against a price-checker site or app's.
For price-checking sites or app's - you should use ITAD, Enhanced Steam, and any other price-checking things you can think of.
If it shows say 75% off or better on Steam (or any other site selling a Steam-version) - then that's possibly worth a buy for backlogging purposes.
Then you check ITAD or any price-checking site; and see what the best price is.
If the current price on a site you wants to buy from beats everyone and isn't bundled, looks like you found a good deal.

I have a $30 steam card so will try to start small. I guess CSGO is a must I used to play that years ago.
Well, don't start right now w/ CS:GO!
CS:GO is not even on sale right now! It's full price current MSRP - and also been around the block.
I can understand full MSRP (or close to it) on a brand new game that just came out (that ain't been cheap) - but not on something old and something that's been around.
CS:GO has been $3.74 before, according to ITAD:
Seriously - wait for an upcoming Steam Sale for that one. It'll be low again.

Alright guys new to steam, where do I start
Oh, boy. This could take a while...
Read spoilers, as this is a long-winded post.
Always check THIS thread for non-sense, comedy, my horrible posts, and God knows what else in here - oh, and maybe you'll see a somewhat worthwhile deal here & there.
Almost always buy low and try resist buying ASAP as much as possible.
Ain't always easy for something you really want to play - but, it can be done. Accumulating big backlogs cheap can make it easier to resist ASAP games (buying games As Soon As Possible - i.e. pre-order + new releases usually are at MUCH higher prices). New releases often having bugs; broken quests/missions; might have performance issues; possible Re-release Edition coming later with ALL DLC (or a lot of it); a possible HD Re-Release Edition with everything; and other nonsense that makes it much easier to buy later.
Always check these Bundle threads for deals - i.e. Humble Bundle; BundleStars; IndieGala; Groupees.
Don't expect much worth a damn from Groupees, though - they often ain't been that great. Buying games in bundles is often your best bet, if you see something or a bunch of games in a bundle you want; can often be best bang for buck or best deal. Also great for backlogging for lots of titles, too.
If you're often curious of a game on sale - always check out ITAD and search for said game. See if the game is at its best price yet; or if it has been cheaper before, bundled before, or whatever the case might be.

MysterD thank you for that warning about the Fallout disc download size. I'm sure the people in 1994 with 14.4kbps modems buying games from the future will really appreciate the warning. Oh and I hear there's another continent beyond the sea and dragons and the edge of the world where they really love boxes and discs and hate downloading games.
While it doesn't matter for someone like yourself or me who lives in a well-connected area w/ good Internet speeds + a decent Internet plan, that info might actually matter for someone else who's buying.

* entire FO4 game is not on that one DVD disc; expect 20+ GB download from Steam

Picked up all 4 commandos games for 3.19. Really like the new GOG galaxy beta interface, easier to use than steam.
As much as I love the idea of DRM-FREE games and whatnot - GOG Galaxy is not even close to being on Steam's level. There's no big picture mode; no screenshot taking in the client; community is nowhere on Steam's level; game back-ups and updating can still be a pain-in-the-neck; and I could go on and on - but, I'll just stop here.
Hell, GOG Galaxy ain't even on Origin's level or UPlay's level, for crying out loud.

Any new VRAM for Fallout 4? (I can keep dis up all day....that's what I said...TRUTH!)
Looks like many gamers might not need to worry about VRAM concerns.
Even a i3 with GTX 750 seems to run it fine:
Also, for those w/ 970's or higher end AMD 390's that want Ultra settings on 1080p or 1440p, check this:
