What is the verdict on this year's STEAM sale? Personally I think it's pretty piss poor! Most of what is or has been on sale has already been on sale. Sometimes at the exact same discount or even deeper discounts!!
I think we're coming to a point where most of us already own everything we want to own and tbh there really isn't anything we need outside some exciting new indie titles. Personally I haven't purchased a single AAA game from this sale. Only stuff like Rogue Legacy, Toki Tori 2+, Awesomenauts etc.

If the Steam userbase doesn't expand in the future as rapidly as it has to this day, these sales will be an exercise in futility, since there'll be nothing left to buy for most people
