Yeah, because they're horrible games and no one likes playing them.

He means because these games are out for what seems eternity now. Either way, imo this was one of the worst sales in quite a while, nothing I wanted was properly flagged down in price.... I bought Waveform... for the value of a good trading card sale (19ct).. and aside that I hoard money and have nothing to spend it on...

Usually with such sales in the past I found at least 2 or 3 gems... but this time it was just depressing.

I don't know, I thought it was a fine sale as usual. I think a lot of people just under estimate how much they over stuffed their gaming library. Newer EA games aren't on Steam anymore either so that removes a big chunk of potential titles. I have a large back log and still found 3 games to buy. There were very respectable sales on pretty much everything I've purchased in the past too.

CS:GO is insanely popular, the franchise has attracted the youth demographic again somehow all these years later. L4D2 is still played a fair bit and goes on deep sales.

Maybe it's because of currency exchange rates.. but to me tons of these sales were far above the "what I find acceptable to pay during a sale" limit ;p I mean even more depressing even is that most of the GoG sales.. was for games I already own. As in, physically. The CD's ;p
