I think it really has made me cheap, but I think the reason is because I have so many games I've purchased on sale that I've yet to play. I'll still purchase games I'm 99% sure I'll love but there are only a few of those a year.

It has not made me cheap.

It however has coaxed me into buying a lot of games for 5 dollars I would have otherwise never touched.

I don't remember the last time I spend $50-60 on a game. Even when I pre order, I usually have a coupon. Tons of sites offers coupons on pre orders. I got Battlefield 3 for around $45, and it came with Deadspace 2. Fallout: New Vegas was around the same price. I got Shadowrun Returns for $18 with $2 off, but that is 1/3 the price of a brand new game. Diablo 3 was probably the only game I paid $60 for since Fallout 3 ( I think that was $50 actually, but same thing ).

I only installed Steam because I needed it to install Warband, which I'd bought as an impulse buy on disc for 98p. I was a thrifty cheapo-ass gamer long before I started using Steam.

No. I never paid full price before Steam either.

I would rarely buy a non-sale games anyway on any platform (only time I do that now it's either due to certain circumstances e.g. a game could become rare or because of some pre-order bonus).

If anything steam has caused me to spend more money than I otherwise would.

Just a little. I never bought games for 50-70 bucks, I thought that was too expensive long before I used Steam. It has however made me cheaper in that I will wait for a sale when a game just remotely interests me.
On the other hand, Steam has also made me buy a lot of games that I never would've even looked at if it werent for the Steam sales.
