I actual kind of miss flash sales and voting. There was really something fucked up (yet fun) about rolling over in bed and checking steam at 2am.
Absolutely! The old Steam sales where each game had mini events where you had to do certain things to win coal or other game prizes was great!
I heard that refunds are the reason Flash Sales are gone, unfortunately. Seeing a lower price is a valid reason to request a refund from Steam. So to avoid hundreds of thousands of people requesting refunds they just removed Flash Sales.
This is super boring and really removes some of the magic of Steam Sales, in my opinion. I'm pretty bummed.
