Recent steam sale definitely has been weaker than previous due to lack of super flash sales with 75-90% off. Average sales are 50% at best, with 25% off new releases.


In all honesty, it's kind of a bust now.

There used to be deeper discounts before flash sales got axed to make the refund policy not living hell to deal with.

There'll probably be another sale like the summer sale around late October or in December, so there's not much need to wait for next summer. You can also find equally good sales throughout the year for individual games on isthereanydeal.com which tracks bargains on a bunch of different sites.

The winter sale at the end of December is usually your best bet. There will probably be a Thanksgiving sale though.

The sales on steam are no where as good as they use to be. No flash sales have killed it.

Apologist like to say "oh you just own every thing" or "do you expect a game that came out 3 months ago to be 90% off lol"

My wishlist has well over 200 games and has many games that are a few years old and most of the games are 20-50% off. I'll see a few at 75% off and if I am really really lucky might see one or two at 90% off.

My first few years on steam and I use to see games going between 75-90% off a lot. The refund system pretty much killed it as devs don't want to keep there games at that steep a discount for that long. Those great steam sales of yester year that people use to go nuts over are long gone.

Well, Humble Bundle is currently having an end of summer sale, which is basically summer sale lite.
I used to have a good signature, then I got modded for it.
Now I shall try to think of something edgier to put here.

I feel like they could just bring back flash sales and have a no refund policy for those.

Rather have the ability to get refunds. Cause what happens if the game is broken and is unplayable?

^Isn't that why people pirate the game? To test if the game playable on their PC?
