What?! no. People back in the day didn't go to Best Buy to look for games on sale. People, such as myself, do look at the steam sale and buy games once they hit a threshmark. Hell, I've owned CS:GO for over 5yrs and just installed it a week ago. I've owned Witcher 2 now for a couple of years and have never installed it. I have over 170 games in my steam library alone and have yet to install 80% of them.

I went to stores and bargains played a factor in buying. There were plenty of games back in the day I didn't finish, a few I never played. That said, there is no doubt more of this going on than ever. $5 is enticing for a game that looks good even if you don't get to it.
