Wow and here I thought I've had a lot of unplayed games.
This is why I stop buying games. I rarely have time for them even during my Thanksgiving vacation! Argh. I still have old games (Crysis, World in Conflict, C&C3:KW, tons of free game demos and betas, etc.) to resume and finish.

Funny that I also have those exact games you listed sitting there waiting for me to play them. Now I picked up another copy of EVE Online which is going to be bad news for all the games I have not played yet.

Is there a way to buy time somewhere?
Well, you could ask God. [grin]

Oh the horror! Impulse offer not valid in Australia. My money is good. MY MONEY IS GOOD.

At the current exchange rate, the asking price on Steam (59.99aud) is equivalent to 62.2336 American dollars. I am sure that is excellent value but a punch in the face to all antipodean gamers. They must think we are all rubes. Well, I've waited a year, and I can wait more. How'dya like them apples ea/valve?

Personally holding out for that 25.00 mark via steam (or LESS!) COME ON HOLIDAY SALE!!!!!

Considering that DAO + Awakenings will very likely give you 100+ hours of gameplay and that DAO is one of the best CRPGs in the past decade, I think $35 is a pretty reasonable deal.

I see it's a game by Obsidian, so I have to ask just how buggy is it?

Far less buggy than New Vegas, where I've crashed at least 20 times over 90 hours of gameplay. Some people reported lots of major bugs with AP but I never encountered any, so it's hard to say. In any case, a patch was recently released for the game that may have resolved these issues.

I have 15-20 never installed games, though half are Tales of Monkey Island and the X-Com pack, and another 10 that were installed and never finished.

I'd hoped to greatly reduce that by the Christmas sales, but Sam & Max and Alpha Protocol are too good to pass up.

Wow that deal on impulse for dragon age is pretty good

And sadly it's for North America only ... suckers. Would have been a great gift for a friend.

It is at Amazon for $10.00 if you don't want/trust digital distribution that isn't Steam.

Between the complete Eidos and THQ packs and some other random purchases, I think I have even more than that.

I'm not about to buy another Obsidian game just to find out it won't run or cannot be completed.

FYI about the steam giveaway, the rules state you must have at least 10 titles in your wishlist to be eligible, so don't stop at the 5 you want.

That was never a problem here!

One thing I noticed, is that I had bought a few of the games in my list, and they weren't taken out.....weird.

Yes it was, in fact they sold so many of it they ran out of keys. There was even a post on Blues about it if I remember correctly.

Unfortunately, I was playing something else and wasn't paying attention.

No biggie... so far it's worth the $30.

I wonder if it's possible to get stats on games which people have bought, but haven't ever downloaded/installed? Would be interesting.

A little heads up on the Steam contest, you need to have a minimum of 10 games in your wishlist to be eligible. Just in case you didn't randomly notice that in the rules.
