So I see Metro Last Light on sale, should I get it before it ends about 4 hours or wait for a perhaps a bigger Xmas sale?

I only just got Steam this year.

It depends on how much you want it, how big your current backlog is, etc.

I doubt you want it that bad if you're questioning yourself.

And it will almost surely be on sale for Christmas, and at a lower price.

The best advice I've ever gotten regarding steam sales is if you aren't going to play it immediately don't buy it because it will be on sale again before you've cleared your backlog. My one exception is buying sequels, if I'm playing the previous entry and loving it I'll go ahead and nab the sequel if it comes up, even if it won't immediately be the next thing I play.

It's 60% off now.

They may sell it for 75% off during the Christmas sale.

definitely, unless you don't care and are the type that feels anxious if you don't have something ASAP.

anxiety is brutal, I don't judge.
