Poll: Steam Sale: What should I buy?: Dust: An Elysian Tail or Garry's Mod (91 votes)

Dust: An Elysian Tail ($3.74) 44%
Garry's Mod ($2.49) 11%
Buy Both ($6.23) 31%
Don't Bother with either ($0.00) 14%

Hey, everyone.

I'm deciding on whether I should buy Dust: An Elysian Tail or Garry's Mod for today. Everything else is either too expensive for my blood or doesn't have Steam Cloud support (which has become a must for how I play games). I have some pros and cons about the purchases that may make it harder to choose.

Dust: An Elysian Tail

  • pro: would have a separate copy from the one I have on XBLA
  • con: already beat the game on Tough on XBLA; don't feel like touching it ever again

Garry's Mod

  • pro: has Occulus (Reese) and Kinect support for creating weird things with it
  • con: I'm already making games with my own assets; why would I use someone else's toolset and not make money off the result?

That's all the complaints and complements I have for now. If any of you can convince me otherwise, please comment below.

Edit: Nevermind that, this is really stupid, you clearly aren't interested in either so why even ask. This is a really stupid question.

Dust's fantastic characters, brilliant combat, engaging platforming and beautiful visuals will keep you smiling for the majority.

You don't want to buy either of them, it seems. So buy both.

That's though, but I think you should by Dust.

Oh, well, then definitely buy Garry's Mod.

I'm already making games with my own assets; why would I use someone else's toolset and not make money off the result?

...well, why the fuck did you even ask then?

Dust is really great. Once I started playing it, I didn't stop till I had all the achievements.

Garry's Mod makes for good laughs if you're patient with it and have the right games.

EDIT: Wait, I just read your descriptions...why are you asking this question again? You don't want either. Don't waste your money. Get some lunch instead.
