Steam Summer Sale

Post by Franka » Thu Jun 23, 2016 6:23 pm

Oh snap! The Steam Summer Sale is on! Once the traffic dies down a little (seriously, it takes minutes for each screen to load for me right now), I'm going to spend so much money on games I'll never play! :P

I should set a budget, or I'll end up going overboard, half of my wishlist is discounted 40+%... :? (Ok, slightly exaggerated, but still.)

I usually set aside 100 eur on a temporary CC (I can generate one with my bank) so that I have a hard limit that I cannot exceed. Last time though I didn't even reach half. I don't have time anymore, and honestly there isn't much that interest me nowadays, as player.

Well, so far 100€ went down the drain just for games on my wishlist. Oops?

Haha, well as long as the games spent are worth it or you play them sooner or later is fine!

I mostly buy games for 2 reasons:
1) because I want to play them (obviously)
2) to do "research". Since I make games too, sometimes I hear stuff like "the combat on game XYZ is well done" and so on. So, sometimes I just watch youtube videos, other times I buy the game to see for myself.

In case of 2, many times I even play for 3-4h the game and then no more :lol: but it's still worth it for me personally since I can get ideas for my own games/stories :)

Most of them will be filed under "later", but yeah, my work doesn't involve games so everything is something I want to play eventually!





Except maybe the nostalgia purchases...

The most expensive game I bought this month is still a Winter Wolves game though!

I switched to the strategy of only buying games when my uncompleted game list drops to a handful and that's helped my wallet survive the summer sale. After all, there are so many deep discount sales on Steam it's not like you miss out forever.
