Games that don't drop in price easily....

I was interested in getting Timeshift during the Summer sale because I heard by a lot of people that it was a good hidden gem. During the summer sale, THE SALE PRICE was $15. That's right, the sale price on Steam for a game that is 6 years old that nobody has talked about in the last 5 years, was $15...

No. If I want a game I buy it. I'm not a 12 year old kid on an allowance that has to wait 6 years for a price drop so I can get it for Christmas.


No, you're 13! Practically a grown woman now!


HAHAHAHAAHAHAH!!!

If you have a k-mart near you check there. They're the only place I've ever seen with blizzard games on sale outside of blizzard's holiday sales. Though they're not actually on sale, they're on clearance. K-mart is trying to liquidate all of their PC stock. I think the D2 battle chest is $10, WoW and xpacs are $5 each, and SC2 is $20 though they I think they only had HoS at mine.

Anything made by Bethesda.
Anything made by Rockstar (you do see the old ones on sale from time to time on Steam though).


Uh? No. Skyrim is $30 right now, and Max Payne 3 is $20. I just don't see how those prices don't constitute a drop from the regular one. And that's not counting Steam Sales.


Skyrim came out 2 years ago. It has a higher price than most games that came out 2 years ago.

I just purchased Crysis 3 complete for $12.99

I noticed Skyrim and Far Cry 3 rarely if ever go below $20. I mean that's still pretty cheap but not compared to most other games that go for less than $10 or even $5 on Steam.

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time for 3DS is still $40 at most places, and I'm still waiting for get it for less than $20 -_-


Good luck with that. You could maybe pick up a Like New copy on Amazon Warehouse for $23.xx. I haven't checked in a while as that place is fairly addicting.

As far as PC goes, Activision likes to keep COD games priced high and never more than 50% off.

I actually saw it in a big lots for $6 like 5 years ago. I never bought it because my PC couldn't run it at the time.

SC2 will be on sale at the end of the month for $15. The expansion will also be sold for $15 so you can pick the pair up for $30. Won't get much better then that until the next expansion is released, and is bundled together.

I can get Bioshock Infinite for $10, but I can't get Skyrim freaking DLC for $5? No thanks, Bethesda.
