Okay the total 'Black Gaming Sale Week' haul looks like this:

Borderlands $10
Batman $10
Torchlight $5
Lara Croft $7.50
LFD2 $5
Defense Grid $2.50
Indie Pack (with Gish) $5
King's Bounty platinum pack $8.75
Just Cause 2 (thanks to GT 'buddy' system purchase) $ 7.50
World of Goo $ 2.50

Impulse:
Dragon's Age Ultimate Edition $25

Looks like roughly $85.00 - there is still time left - if I go for an even $ 100 - that leaves me $ 15.00. Given what is still out there on Steam, GG, Impulse and GOG what is a must buy? Haven't heard compelling arguments for Metroid or AVP. What else before I shut her down?

Would love to hear what others hauled away this past week.

If you haven't played Peggle, pick up the two versions of Peggle on Steam for $15.  If you have an XBox, go try the demo from the Arcade. 

My Damage:

Alpha Protocol $7.50
Defense Grid: The Awakening $2.50
Indie Pulse Pack (Doubled purchase of Audiosurf: out $2.50) $4.99
Wings of Prey $14.99
Supreme Commander 2 $3.75
King's Bounty: Collection $8.75
Galcon Fusion $2.50
Patrician IV $10.00
World of Goo $2.50
Mount and Blade: Warband $7.50
The Ball $9.99
Indie Puzzle Pack $4.99
Peggle Complete Pack $14.99
Indie Air Pack $4.99

Total damage: $79.95.  I was actually expecting it to be about $20 higher, but of course, I still haven't decided on the Lead and Gold pack.

Just played a demo of Peggle for the first time!  Pretty fun!  I will be purchasing Peggle, along with Peggle Nights most likely, as well as todays Indie Pack.  Was thinking about AVP and Metro 2033 but I dunno?

I'd say AvP and Dirt 2 are worth it at that price. Caveat: I've only played a bit of Dirt 2 (mainly to check out the graphics) so it could potentially take a nosedive, plus what else can you do for 5 bucks nowadays?

A little late with the response, but Dirt 2 is a great game if you can get past the "Americanized" facade.  I didn't give the game much of a chance right away because of that, but once I learned to ignore it I really got a ton of enjoyment out of the game, and still go back to it now and again.

From Steam, I didn't get too much:

Monkey Island 2 SE: $2.50
Machinarium: $5
Indie Story Pack: $5

But, with Gamersgate:

Syberia $4
Syberia 2 $4
Still Life $4

Amazon:

Infamous $10
Mass Effect 2 $10
Left for Dead 2 $10
Batman AA $15

Wal-Mart

God of War Collection $10
Ratchet and Clank Future $10
Ratchet and Clank Future: ACiT $10

...that's $99.50, or about the cost of 1.5 new releases for 18 games!

Steam didn't really have a lot to tempt me this year. I picked up Lara Croft Guardian of Light, Dirt 2, Torchlight, Batman Arkham, SupCom2,..

think thats all.

I'm 100% certain that the Christmas sale will blow away the Thanksgiving sale as it did last year.  Therefore I tried to show great restraint.  I used to refuse to buy any Steam games for more than $10.  After amassing a huge backlog, my rule is now no game for more than $5.

Monkey Island 2 Special Edition: LeChuck's Revenge  $2.50
Indie Puzzle Pack $4.99
Indie Clever Pack $4.99

I kept it to just the King's Bounty collection and AvP.  I figured those prices wouldn't be dropping much, even at Xmas.

hard to pass up the air pack but i already have two of the 5 and the other 3 are not exactly screaming buy to me.

ended up with this:

Indie Puzzle Pack - $5
Indie Pulse Pack - $5
Indie Clever Pack - $5
Indie Story Pack - $5
Left 4 Dead 2 - 6-Pack - $25
Indie Energy Pack - $5
Alpha Protocol - $7.50

so 57.50 for 26 (minus 5 i already had on steam or elsewhere) games plus 6 gifts. 

not bad and nothing compared to last year's xmas sale.  i expect that to be murderous on my wallet.

These two are tempting. Anyone have opinions about the games?

Dirt 2 is excellent and well worth it.

Believe it or not I somehow managed to actually lose my copy of KOTOR, so I jumped at the chance to pick it up for £1.75.  That was a pleasant surprise.

Good feedback and comments on the Black Friday week 'haul'. Based on comments I nixed AvP and Metroid but was convinced to give Dirt 2 a go - anyone have any comments about the Indie Air pack?

It will be very interesting to see to what degree the Christmas sale undercuts Black Friday.
