Your game sale stash. Steam/etc

Tell us all the awesome games you got for super cheap during the steam sale! And other places counted too as plenty did sales. I'll make a list once my fear of my huge list subsides.

Well my Summer sale haul was, going down my purchase history:

Fallout 3: GOTY Edition
Trine 1 & 2
Cave Story+
Blocks that Matter
Dear Esther
Psychonauts
EYE: Divine Cybermancy
Dead Space 2
Red Orchestra 2
BIT.TRIP.RUNNER
STALKER: Clear Sky
Chantelise
Thief: Deadly Shadows
Nexuiz
Alan Wake & American Nightmare
VVVVVV
World of Goo
Prince of Persia
ARMA 2: Combined Operations
Jade Empire

Italic = Indie. All those game's price combined is barely more than 1 full-priced modern game! There's some pretty awesome stuff in there, so I'll be set for quite some time; I already had games I needed to catch up on so the sales really just piled it all on. I'm not complaining though.

Heil Steam!

Street Fighter IV AE 2012
Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Version (not a Steam sale, but same time)
Dark Messiah Might and Magic
Dreamfall: Longest Journey
E.Y.E. Divine Cybermancy
Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind GOTY (sold my hard copy)
F.E.A.R. 1 & The Expansions
Fallout 3/NV GOTY
GTA Vice City, IV, and Episodes of Liberty City
Prince of Persia Forgotten sands and Two Thrones
Red Orchestra 2 GOTY
Sid Meier's Pirates
Sins of a Solar Empire: Trinity
Ys: Origin
Commander Keen Adventures
Hard Reset

And just recently X3: Albion Conflict

Alucard; I think the same way. Valve has it setup to have the store right next to your collection. So anytime you're playing a game you can automatically diverge your attention to sales.

I love the price I pay for games on Steam. But after these sales, I feel as though I just came back from a store. But really I haven't, I've just been sitting at my computer.

Alan Wake, SF4, Fallout 3 / Fallout: NV with all the DLC, Arma 2 : Operation Arrowhead (already owned Arma 2), Binding of Isaac, Left 4 Dead 2 (surprisingly never got this before).

Probably some other stuff that I'm forgetting.

Hopefully you'll enjoy this one. I thought it was exceellent. Some gameplay mechanics in it that arent in other games. Like using a nearby fire to light up your arrow for fire damage in the middle of a fight. Using stuff around you, physics based stuff. Brilliant game.

the only thing i bought was bastion. unless it's a day1 purchase (which is rare), i've already bought everything i want to play from previous sales for the same or less price.

the steam sale kinda sucked compared to last years.. a lot of the same games from last year were more expensive this year. i guess games released on steam increase in value over over time?

The entire DOW franchise, 215 worth of stuff, was only 17 during the sale. I'd hardly call expensive now.

The sales were as awesome as usual, I picked up a lot of stuff for dirt. I left some things simply because next Summer sale they'll be even cheaper, and I'll play them then. Plus I need a year to catch up on all the things I already have got, I haaaaaaate having a huge backlog of games.

Zelda did that about 15 years ago.

DMMM is a good game though.

Zelda did shit 15 years ago! Combining is one thing. No way did you do stuff on the fly during gameplay, freezing water, electrocuting it if someone was standing in it, smashing piled up logs to roll over your enemies etc.

While in free combat you could fire your arrow through the fire to set it a lit and then hit the enemy to do extra fire damage with your new fire arrow. OOT or MM for sure.

smashing piled up logs/rocks to make them roll over enemies has been done in loads of games.
