Oh God, the Steam Sale is finally over. I guess my wallet can breath a little easier now. While I'm too lazy to make one of those hype-filled infographic things, I thought it'd be neat to show you all what treats I delighted myself with since the sale started. In about two weeks time, I acquired the following (in order of purchase):
Overlord: Raising Hell
Call of Duty
Call of Duty 2
Call of Duty: United Offensive
Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare
Call of Duty: World at War
Gothic II: Gold Edition
Painkiller: Black Edition
The Guild 2 - Pirates of the European Seas
Red Faction Guerilla
Thief: Deadly Shadows
Freedom Force vs. the 3rd Reich
Devil May Cry 4
Now, for each one of these 22 titles, I saved an average of 70% off the standard price (per deal), and considering the package deals (namely the Call of Duty pack for 29.99 instead of the normal $120 asking price), I made out like a bandit. It's a rough estimate, but for upwards of $200 worth of games (!) I didn't spend more than $50 the entire sale.
The average metacritic score for the titles I purchased was a healthy 81.27. Not bad, not bad at all.
After the sale, my Steam Game tally is up to 225 games, of which the total price comes to (approximately) $1,436.48. I spend an average of $7 per game, and spend roughly $20 a month (average) on Steam. Big thanks to our friends at Digitally Distributed Gamer for their amazing Steam Calculator!
Looking at those games, it looks like I got some Grade-A material for the next podcast! What did YOU pick up during Steam's massive shenanigan festival?
