I only bought 4 or 5 games this year, but I miss logging in at 1 just to see what's available. The page looks so sad and lonely with just the regular old listings.

Today should mark the return of the midweek/weekend rotation. And there's always the hope of a spring sale.

My wallet couldn't handle much more. And I need time to play all the crap I bought.

be glad for the break in sales.  would you really want one more right now?  need to let the dust settle.

I do admit it's odd not logging in with some anticipation for "what's cheap today?" buzz.

Honestly there aren't really many more games that they could put on sale to entice me at this point.  There have been so many sales so frequently that I'm just burned out on the whole process. 

Besides, I have too many games to play as it is.  smile

That's where I am too. I've pretty much purchased all the games I'd want on sale and have so many games to play at this point I stopped buying anything that was over $5 the last few days of the sale.

There were a couple that I would've bought if they we're like 10 bucks, like Rage or Dead Island for example...  I'm like y'all, I need the time to play them now...

I suspect they'll probably be down to that price for next year's holiday sale.

Mine does but it's more of a twang.

I have holiday sale withdrawal.  The reason I say that is because other than the holiday achievements, Steam didn't really outpace their competitors like they usually do. Unfortunately I can't partake because I don't live in America but Amazon had far better deals than Steam did. Gamersgate also had some excellent deals and apparently Greenmangaming did too.

Same here.  I spent all of $2.50 on this last sale, and even that was a stretch.  I'm sure there are a few of the newer titles that I might pick up when they hit the $5 range, but there's very little that I want on Steam that I don't already have at this point.

No, I think I'm good. This one was great, as I'd been without a gaming PC for a while and it was nice to cheaply fill in some of the gaps in my collection - but I think this'll probably be all I need for a good long time, especially considering that I hadn't even caught up on my Humble Bundle games.

Yeah before the sale started the developer mentioned Trine 2 wasn't going to be participating in the sale.

No feelings of withdrawal here. I didn't buy too many games this year, but almost all have great co-op or mplay. Section 8 Prejudice has almost become a daily play date for my son and I. I mean you buy all those games on sale so you'll be too busy having fun to care about sales - right?

I miss the daily goals and coal and the anticipation.  I really liked the daily achievements as they generally got you to jump into the game (s) you just bought.  It'd be kinda cool if they did that for games in your collection that you hadn't played yet over the offseason.
