I Play Vidja Games: Everyone remember their first steam sale...

OK, so they say you never forget your first... Steam Sale... Well, earlier this year I built myself a pretty decent gaming PC and as many know the Steam Summer Sale has recently come and past. I think I did pretty good, didn't spend too much and got some decent deals. Let's take a look!

GameOriginal PriceSale Price
Dear Esther$10.00$2.50
Deus Ex: Human Revolution$30.00$7.50
Garry's Mod$10.00$2.50
Just Cause 2$15.00$3.75
Killing Floor$20.00$5.00
Portal 2$20.00$5.00
Renegade Ops$15.00$3.75
Terraria$10.00$2.50
Torchlight$15.00$3.75
Total Cost$145.00$36.25

So... thats a savings of $108.75. Thats seems pretty good to me. I spent less than my "self proposed" limit of $50. Sure I've played Deus Ex, Just Cause 2, and Portal 2 on the XBOX 360 but having a reason to play through them again is awesome. And getting to experience some of these other game has me super excited. I have played a few of my new games and am more than happy with how I came out of this sale.

How did you fare?

4 games, 2 soundtracks and a movie for less than £20. I'd say I fared pretty well, having stuck to my limit and not actually bought anything I didn't originally want.

As for what I bought:

  • Dear Esther + Soundtrack
  • Amnesia: The Dark Descent
  • Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale
  • Analogue: A Hate Story + Soundtrack
  • Indie Game: The Movie

Hmm, that's a lot of colons. I got Portal 2 too, but I got it before the sale started for a similar price. Seems like Terraria was a popular one, but I already had that one too.

Hmm, I've not thought to look at it like that.

A saving of £109.53 (about $160 for you murcans). I think I win this time Steam Sale.

E: Also it's totally not my first sale btw. Hence why almost everything in this list was released this year.

This would technically be my second Steam sale, but last time all I bought was the Far Cry pack (1 + 2 + all DLC) and the Valve Complete Pack.

I just put this list up someplace else, so here goes ($24.69 spent)

  • The Witcher
  • Torchlight (plus one copy for my brother, who loves it)
  • Bastion
  • Morrowind
  • Return to Castle Wolfenstein

Why do people keep saying vidja games?

@falserelic: Honestly, I'm not sure. It's fun to say though!
