    I really don't get how Skyrim and GTA5 always end up as top sellers when a sale starts. Literally everyone and their mom should own those games by now.

    Steam controller 90% off for just 5.5€? Seems pretty insane yet I still have no interest in owning that controller :D


    What's your favorite puzzle game guys? Tom Raider or Resident Evil?

    I love how Ground Zeroes (which is basically a demo for MGS5) costs the same as MGS5 Definitive Edition which includes base game, Ground Zeroes, all DLC and MGS Online.

    Steam controller for $13 to my doorstep is low enough to see how bad it could possibly be; Resident Evil 2 for $20 is a good deal (I already bought it at release). Otherwise, most of these deals are pretty garbage.

    In a perfect world no one should have these games by now.

    Just created a Steam account and bought the Valve Collection for 20 bucks. Any recommendations for other Steam-exclusives? Classics (pre-2012ish) only, I don't have a great PC. I'm thinking of getting EYE if that's on sale.

    It seems a weird policy to sometimes have many months between the big sales and then sometimes just a couple of weeks. You'd think they'd spread that out better so I wonder what their reasoning is.

    I remember reading some chunk of those constant GTA5 sales are hackorz getting repeatedly banned from the game and buying more copies. No idea how big a chunk tho.

    As for Skyrim, it's just a brand, a big name. New generations are growing up wanting to be cool owners of that famous RPG too. Recently some CDPR exec mentioned Witcher 3 sales are still going strong too.

    Definitive Edition is almost the same price.


    Some games I'm interested but I've too much backlog, any recommendations?
    Plus roots for KOTC developer to eat.

    Cool pixel art banner for the sale, much better than the usual deviantart-tier artwork.

    Yeah I had a brainfart there. Not visuals tho, not even close.

    My list:
    GOTY - Sekiro
    VR - or the "who gives a shit" award
    Labour of Love - Kingdom Come
    Better with Friends - dunno, real life? Didn't find it on Steam tho
    Most Innovative Gameplay - Slay the Spire
    Outstanding Story - Disco Elysium
    Best Game I Suck At - Sunless Skies (props to Multi-headed Cow for the tip, actually I haven't played Skies yet but this award fits my playthroughs of Sunless Sea perfectly so what the hell)
    Outstanding Visuals - Metro Exodus (a weak winner; too bad the voting ends a week before RDR2 comes to Steam, otherwise it'd be a slam dunk)
