An ode to a Steam Summer Sale

I won’t actually write an ode to Gabe Newell, although he totally deserves one, but that’s not the point of this article here. Now that the Steam Summer Sale is – more or less – over, how did you all do? Did any of you actually stick to their planned budgets? What games did you all get? Have you actually started playing any of these games?

I want to share with you all the list of games I bought during the sale, and I should say that I went over my planned budget by almost $50, which is shameful to say the least, but I did get some pretty good games:

  1. Dark Souls: Prepare To Die Edition – $7
  2. Dead Island GOTY – $5
  3. Darksiders II + Season Pass – $5
  4. RollerCoaster Tycoon 3: Platinum – $15
  5. Organ Trail: Director’s Cut – $1.25
  6. Mirror’s Edge – $6
  7. Fallout New Vegas Ultimate Edition – $5
  8. Fallout 3 GOTY – $5
  9. Hitman Absolution Professional Edition – $7.50
  10. Just Cause 2 + DLCs – $3.75
  11. Universe Sandbox – $2
  12. Tomb Raider: Survival Edition + DLC – $15.25
  13. Braid – $5
  14. FEZ – $5
  15. Hard Reset: Extended Edition – $3.75
  16. Super Meat Boy – $3.75
  17. To The Moon + Soundtrack – $3.75
  18. The Binding Of Isaac + DLC – $4
  19. Borderlands 2 Psycho Pack DLC – $3.40
  20. Cities In Motion II – $6.80
  21. Euro Truck Simulator II – $10
  22. Just Cause* – $0.27
  23. Civilisation V Gold Edition – $12.50
  24. Fallout Collection – $3

* Just Cause’s price was $0.27 for almost 5 hours until Steam noticed and brought it back to $1.39, was able to grab almost 8 copies to give to friends, who knew Steam Trading Cards would be so useful!
