I remember when Steam sales at 5$ or less were immediate instabuys...

Now stuff at 99 cents must be carefully considered.

Desensitization.

EDIT: And with the 99 cent thing, it's less of a price issue than a backlog issue: "I *could* buy this game for 99 cents now, but I have all this other crap to play that I got from other sales. Eh, I'll get it later when my backlog is a bit under control."

There's just so much stuff on Steam now, and with bundles, even $5 is getting to be like, well I could get this one game or get it in a bundle down the track. This keeps happening to me, whenever I buy indie games from the Steam client, I find them in bundles soon after. Heh.

Yeah, I wish there were better ways to categorize your purchased games. I honestly buy anything I'm interested in after it drops below $10 or 75% off, depending on the original price, so I have...too many...way, way too many...

I've got this problem sometimes, too. It's too hard not to pass up. And there'll be times when I'll pass it up, but then a few hours later I'll buy it anyway. When I think how much it is, really, it's too easy to just give in.

I know the feeling. These days it has to be something I am extremely interested in to even consider purchasing it. There are games I am interest in that I don't even buy on sale. I would actually rather buy it at full price when I have finished my backlog in that genre than buy it on sale and add it to the pile.

I remember when men were men, and not housewives that would buy anything as long as it's cheap.

My uncle was actually like that, he'd browse ebay just looking for local cheap things. >_>

I for one have always carefully considered the games I buy, be they a few dollars or 60$, because I don't want to waste my time on a game I'm not particularly into and just got because it was cheap. I don't go mad bulk buying just because something's cheap, if I wanted a ton of usually expensive games for nothing there's ways to procure that - not the point of the exercise for me. Rare enough I find a game that catches my fancy nowadays, so I'm generally ready to shell out a premium price when I do find games I'm quite sure I'll enjoy. I'm just not very experimental anymore.

I was having a great day. Then I discovered Zero Escape 3 was put on hold. There were no more great days.

1.99? It might be 99p in the winter sale. Maybe next time, 6 month old AAA title.
