What's up with the prices? If memory serves me correct I remember getting games like Fallout New Vegas and Fallout 3 (complete editions) for like 2.50 or 3 bucks in past years. I got Star Wars Battlefront 2 a couple years ago for 2 bucks? It's now also 10. 10 dollars is cheap, but for games that old? Seriously?

Idk just an observation...Guess I got em when the getting was good a few years ago.

Winter sales are usually better, but Steam sales as a whole have gotten worse. So Winter may be better, it may be about the same. I'm going to hold out until Winter to buy anything. I've been waiting a year and a half for Strardew Valley to have a sale that's less than terrible. This Thanksgiving sale is still making me wait.

You can always check your purchase history to see exactly what you paid, instead of wondering. Classic Battlefront 2 also isn't on sale, for "games that old" $10 base price is far from insanity.

Yeah i think its been meh this year.

Was hoping that Cuphead might have a small sale but I guess thats asking too much.

Man and you guys weren't lying about the physical games being cheaper too. Shadow of War 25 on consoles and 35 on steam. wth(not that I'd buy a game with lootboxes anyway but still)

There are always times that console games are cheaper than PC. The idea that PC is always cheaper is a fallacy created by PC-only gamers.

I think the Winter and Summer sales are typically the bigger ones anyway.

Sounds like a good time to actually play the games you have vs. whining about not being able to increase your steampeen for a pittance.
