I am largely on the fence over a few titles. Over the last decade I have become a Steam Whore of sorts, building a gaming library off of deeply discounted titles that I thought I was interested in, only to wind up with dozens not installed and many others never played.  :o

My wish list on Steam had over 20 titles in it and each time I got an itchy trigger finger on the buy button I forced myself to go watch YouTube videos of gameplay which ended up thinning the heard.
The five games I have left on the wish list I cannot bring myself to purchase yet.

One big factor in my hesitance is that I know the Steam sale ends Dec. 1, and later in the same month they will launch their massive end of year sale. I would hate to buy something now at 50% off if it will be available three weeks from now at 75-90% off (even if I never install or play it).  :idiot2:

The Matrix sale is somewhat interesting; however the only thing that stands out for the moment is War Plan Orange at a nice $9.99 price point.  :D

SanctuaryRPG Black Edition.

I can't wait for the long-promised Linux port.  It reminds me of the very old 8-bit game Dungeon which I absolutely loved as a nipper.

So I played this for about an hour tonight and it is fantastic.  I very highly recommend it.

Hey JD, what do you think of F1 2015 for 50% off?

I only finished half of 2014 and don't know that I need a whole new season.  Price is still a bit high for a maybe...Steam reviews are really bad.  I seem to remember you grooved on it though...

I've bought Distant Worlds - Universe.

If gog has a big sale, I'll probably buy 4-5 things.

Bought the hard copy of Decisive Campaigns Barbarossa because I'm a sucker for a hard cover color manual!

So far I've picked up Arma III for 29.99.  Still pondering on whether to get Civil War II from AGEOD or not.  I'll probably pick up another STEAM card later on today and go from there.   ;D

OMG! I am NOT ALONE! :2funny:

Recently got Fortress Craft, Stranded Deep, Anti Squad, Skyrim Leg'y ed, and goat simulator on Steam for my son and daughter. I thought about the Attila TW series, but there were tons of BAD reviews, which put me off and anyway I have Rome 2 TW, and apparently that is better? If Attila is as good as I was hoping it would be then someone please let me know ASAP before the sale is over. Thanks.  O0

^Attila, IMHO, is probably the best TW title since Shogun 2 but it is very tough to win, for me anyway.

I have spent exactly $0.00 for PC games this holiday season. I am even considering making some sort of New Year's resolution along those lines.
Regardless of how good a PC game may be it will always have its detractors and no matter how bad a PC game may be it will always have its fans.
