PC Steam Winter Sale 2019

Recommended Posts

Winter Sale is on now. Less enthusiasm than previous years probably but there are quests you can do to get an easy $5 off!


Nope, not easy.  If you do every quest in the sale, you won't even get 2/5ths the way to the $5 off coupon.  You'll need to spend at least $31 more in real money to get it.  (not even previous to sale wallet funds!) On the positive side, you still get cards from the discovery queue and voting for the Steam awards.  I made an easy buck the first day of the sale from that.

I'm holding off on buying anything until most of the Epic store freebies are out.  Getting vanilla Division 2 for $5 is probably the best deal across both storefronts as of now.

Some new historical lows that might be worth checking out:

<= $5
- Islanders $2.49
- Age of Empires Definitive Edition $5

- Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon $4.99
- A Robot Named Fight $2.19
- State of Decay $2.99
- Flinthook $2.99
- Stranger Things 3: The Game $4.99
- Mages of Mystralia $4.99

<= $10
- Hellblade $9.99
- Elite Dangerous $5.99

- Siralim Triology Bundle $5.57

- Session $9.99

A few <$3 games that match historical lows:
- Anodyne $0.99
- Ryse: Son of Rome $2.99

- Spectraball $0.49
- Crypt of the Necrodancer $2.99

- Valley $1.99
- Portal Bundle $1.49-

- World to the West $2.99

- Downward $2.99

- The Swapper $2.24
- Divinity Anthology $2.99
- Poi $1.99

There's some gems, but overall, it's a really poor sale for anyone wanting anything AAA to newly drop under $10. I might hoard some store credit for when the console generation shifts.

Grabbed Men At War 2, Hardcore Mecha, and Battlefleet Gothic 2. 

 

I have 5 dollars off not sure what to use it on. There is a hardcore sim on Waterloo I may grab.

I have almost 600 games on Steam alone. 
 

yes. 600. 
 

I no longer participate in steam sales 😋 


 

569 to be exact “Maddux1012000” my Steam name for those who don’t believe me lol

 

Everytime I browse my library I’m shocked at what I have and have many times almost bought games I own. Thankfully I see “Game is in your library” message when I try

I’ve got about 900 on my list, can’t say I’ve had that problem.

 

Only issue for me has been when Epic gives a game away free and I forget to take it off my wishlist.  Then it’s ‘wait I already have that.’

Dude. We some hoarders up on here. Never in “real life” do I know anyone with 100 games on steam 😂🤣

 

I have almost 600. You guys double me. My physical collection is equivalent. It’s all just sad. Or honestly, it’s all AMAZING

I still haven’t gotten a game but I did buy that Ogre Magi arcana (I’ve never had one and this one looks amazing but I barely play him)

So I have that $5 credit now for when I do get something :p

You guys make me feel good. I certainly have less than 100 steam games and I make a concerted effort to finish each one (if I don’t dislike the game). I certainly fall short of that, but I have a list of games I really want to experience and it helps to temper my impulse desire when a new game comes out that I’m interested in. 

 

I often play games that are, 10-30 years old as well, and I often enjoy them as much as a new release, so I think that helps. 

 

That’s not to say I don’t have an unreasonable backlog, but if I had like 500 and my wife found out she would certainly not be pleased lol.

This is why you need a wife who shares your hobby. ;)

The size of my library never feels bad for me.  Because I mostly buy PC games for cheap in bundles, or straight up for free by exploiting Valve’s marketplace (a good $40 earned a year).  There’s also been more than a few dozen games given away free this year. 

 

All this has caused me to dramatically reduce my gaming budget in total.  I spend about $60 a year on the PC side, for dozens of games. With all I have to play, I almost never buy console games new anymore either.

My current cart:

Bright Memory is an easy impulse buy for me.  It looks like Titanfall 2 + Shadow Warrior + Vanquish, plus will give you a sequel that’s in development at its release.

 

Quantum Conundrum’s season pass apparently comes with the full game.

Haha she told me long after we had been dating a while that she never imagined dating someone who plays video games and in fact would have been turned off by such a person. I’ve since introduced her to a lot of games that she enjoys, and I chirp at her a lot about plots or mechanics I find interesting. She struggles with dual analog controls though, so it limits what she can play on her own.

I just don’t have time to invest in that many games.

I don’t either, to be fair.  But it’s not like a digital library takes up shelf space.

 

I’ve always got 8 games in a ‘Play Soon’ playlist.  I’ll swap out what sounds interesting from the backlog as soon as I’m done with a game.  That way, there’s no pressure seeing the library number get bigger.

Bright Memory caught my eye too but I don't like that it's Early Access so I might wait.

 

Eh.,. I just know if I don’t pick it up now, it could be years before I’d purchase it due to price bumps.  Did the same with Black Mesa.

 

I’ll always regret not picking up that bundle with Cross Code and the classic Duke games a few years back.  Think it was $5.  Would have been so much cheaper.

Pulled the trigger on this and Witcher 3 GOTY.  All from free wallet credit.

I really hope current gen games bottom out soon in price.  Here's to the Winter 2020 sale being better.

First year I’ve bought nothing from these sales. 

 

Epic left very little on the plate for me this year.  What hasn’t been given away there just isn’t discounted enough on Steam.  I’m mainly just picking up the scraps that dared to discount to new/uncommon lows.

 

I really miss the flash deals.  They should do a major sale at some point that’s just those.

Really anymore with all the sales, giveaways, and games via subscriptions what I play comes down to time more than $$. I try and discard more games than anything these days... almost like reading a book. If the first chapter of a book doesn't grab me I move on. Same with games now.
