    Good on steam. I have lots of games from steam, I prefer not having a disk.

    Why?

    I don't loose the disk or the keys. I have transferred games for years from one rig to the next without and hassle.

    Those are really good deals, I think I need to check the page, too bad none of the games I'm interested in are listed :(
  4. OR you can get all this stuff for FREE at torrent sites =)

    Steam is usually the cheapest for most of the games! I've only just started using really as I had to with modern warfare 2, but now I have discovered how well priced their games are!

    There are some really good deals. THQ pack (Dawn Of War), Grid for 5€ (i will buy this one for sure).
    I thin that on the end Steam will profit from this actions. This is what digital distribution should be. Cheaper than box versions.

    Call me stupid but i will give 10€ - 20€ for game without regret.
    I don`t buy new games for 60€ because i think it is to much, and i wait for the price to go down.

    Nice to see some discounts on these games. Batman: Arkham Asylum for $24.99 is a sweet deal. I've been wanting to try this game.

    YAY for cheap games. This year has been excellent for top notch PC gaming. Moreso I think then the consoles.

    I have been a Steam user for years now and I really love the platform and method of distribution. I read something recently that said that Steam has 75% of the market for online videogame distribution. Gabe really knows what he is doing.

    The THQ Pack is an absolute steal for 18 games....

    I just picked up L4D 2 for 37.50 which obviously ain't dirt cheap, but still a good deal Imo consiering the game is still pretty new. I might get Mini Ninjas just for the heck of it for 15 bux... loox fun!

    There are so many games to play and prices drop so quickly, you can save a ton a money if you're patient. Between Steam, Direct2drive, and Amazon, picked up Batman, Dead Space, Left 4 Dead (first one), Crysis Maximum, and Borderlands for < 90 bux. Dragon Age will have to wait until black friday next yr. Now I just need to take a month off from work so I can play all this stuff.

    $7.50 for Left for Dead is pretty tempting since i haven't picked it up yet.

    That THQ pack is an absolutely AMAZING deal! A friend of mine just bought it and told me about it. Company of Heroes (all), Dawn of War (all), Red Faction Guerilla, Frontlines Fuels of War and others all for $50. Absolutely brilliant man. Steam rules!

    DAMNIT I missed it...that'll teach me to go away for Thanksgiving. Oh well. More deals are sure to come soon I suppose. Then again, the only game in this package deal that I was looking forward to was Dragon Age: Origins. I'd like to see that go on sale again and Borderlands as well. Those are the two I'm really looking forward to this year.

    I ended up only grabbing L4D2 over the whole week :(
    Steam's sales are always so awesome, and soooo tempting.
