Should I buy Quakecon Bundle + Dishonored from Steam?

I know, I know... This whole thread is a stupid idea but I seriously can't make up my mind.

So to celebrate Quakecon (which is happening this weekend) Bethesda/id are having a sale on Steam. Their whole collection (minus Dawnguard DLC) is bundled and sold for the fair price of 99.99€/$/£. Plus, if you buy Dishonored now you're getting a little more discount for the bundle.

I do not own any these games on Steam. Should I waste my money on this?

If you think you'll actually play all the games in the bundle, it's a great deal. The problem I personally have with publisher bundles is that I know I'll never get around to playing most of the games.

I'm definitely not playing all the games in the bundle. I'm mostly interested in replaying Commander Keen, Doom and Quake 3 which is kinda stupid considering those are the cheapest of the bunch. But Brink, Fallouts and Skyrim I might play as well, even though I've played Fallouts and Skyrim on console already.

Don't you love these first world problems?

If you don't have any of the games, then definitely.

You should also consider playing Dark Corners of the Earth - good game, even if it is a little janky D: Also, if you're up for some very old-school FPSing, then Wolf 3-D and Spear of Destiny are pretty good too.

know what? you totally should buy all of those games, but only buy them individually.
