I'm looking into pc gaming.... do big AAA titles get sales, or do I have to wait 5 years for it to be $19.99

Big titles get sales too. It's not uncommon for a release to hit 50% off within a few months.

I was just curious, bc I kept seeing "steam sales rock" so I looked on the site and they still had cod ghosts and AC4 at full price..... does Amazon sell keys and how good are their prices?

You be silly. You say sales yet expect permanent price drops.

Anyways, major sales for PC usually happen during Easter, Summer, Halloween, Black Friday, and Christmas.

Mind you, these are only major sales including everything, games sales happen every once in a while, you just gotta check.

The sales you want to watch for are in summer and winter. The winter sale is over, but in summer expect to see thing that had been released in the last year or so marked down up to 80% off.

Recent "big" games usually take one to two years to get good discounts. Don't expect more than 25% off for a new game

I didn't know this, so I'm sorry... I honestly just found out about steam last year, so I don't really know what it's about...

AC4 is $30 now, i saw on black friday for $20 as a time discount on amazon, BF4 was $25 everwhere on black friday.

It's not hard to find deals if you're patient.

The holiday event sales are usually the best, not the daily/weekly stuff.
