  1. In addition to GOG's amazing holiday sale, Steam has shown its Christmas spirit with up to 80% off hundreds of games. Some noteworthy deals include 50% off Ubisoft and THQ's entire catalog as well as the Eidos Collector's Pack, 66% off all Atari games and the Unreal pack, and 33% off 2K titles and the Rockstar Collection.

    I'd jump at GTA IV since I haven't played it yet, but I'm curious if the PC version is still as awful and buggy as it was at first.

    Geez...and here I thought I was done buying games for the year. Can't pass up those prices so time to buy myself (more) Christmas gifts. ;)

    There are some really good deals on Steam. Anyone who hasn't checked it out yet, should. Most likely there will be some game that will appeal to you and be super cheap.

    Just picked up Ghostbusters and Mirrors Edge for $11. 'Nuff said.

    Steam rules!

    Wow, they really do have some great games. Gonna have to grab a few titles I missed over the last few years and give them a go. Nice that it's until January 3rd too so we have some time :) .

    Edit: Was so excited I completely overlooked the daily deals :D. Time to get STALKER never got the chance to play it when it originally came out.

    Wow. Now I really need to build my new computer. I'm running out of HD space XD!!! And my cpu (p4 3ghz) is getting kind of old for today's latest games. And I really don't have time to play all these games anyway, but oh well, a deal is a deal, and I will eventually play 'em all!

    I picked up GTA IV for $7.50 :D, bargain! I'm just glad this wasn't limited to US users like some of the steam sales have been.

    In UK Braid is £1.79, GTA4 is £4.99 and KOTOR is £3.49.

    Thats a bargain right there and now I've bought all 3 :)

    I think I need to start saving in advance for these Steam Sales

    I picked up Dragon Age last night when it was still 25% off. I guess I should have gone for the Deluxe Edition which was priced at the normal edition price, but still, I didn't see any need for the "extras". Love the game so far.

    Last night I picked up Orange Box for less than $15. I wanted to get Team Fortress 2, Portal and HL2: EP2 and that was a steal!

    Erm...Now I really have too many games to play. At least it didn't break the bank! HAHA! Thanks Steam! (Now if only that one game I really want drops in price).

    Fallout 3 Game of the Year Edition, oh well, didn't happen. But it's still a deal.

    I'm sad to see this end, however my bank account isn't.

    Here's a rundown of what I picked up over the sale:

    Dragon Age
    Silent Hill Homecoming
    Jade Empire Special Edition
    Atari 80-game pack
    Stalker Clear Sky
    The Orange Box

    I'm sure there's more, but I can't think of them off the top of my head.
