TC just dont end up like those dudes who are all "hey look at my collection of 900 games but I have played 18 of them for an hour, 800 hours of PUBG btw"

it seems tempting but games go on sale on steam all the time and I mean ALL THE TIME, do not buy anything just because it is 2 dollars but buy them because you want to play them

Hey man, 2$ is a good deal, and you might want to explore sometime down the line.

Like seriously, 1-2$ for a game you might only play years later is still better than like, any kind of snack yall are likely to buy.

Should have just bought 1 or 2 games you want to play right now and then wait for the winter sale for the rest. Usually its the winter and summer sales that are the best.

yeah but when you buy 20 of those $2 games, then those snacks suddenly become the grocery bill for a week

it seems harmless but some people will literally never touch these games they bought and it becomes the same as taking cash out of your wallet and burning it, it is a phenomenon that happens way too often on steam

Let us know in a year or two how many you've actually played more than an hour or two of, let alone completed.


True, but it's *brilliant* having literally hundreds of games that you intend to play, as you're never stuck for something to kill time.
I'm a PC and console gamer - I love good games, regardless of their host system.

For the compulsive people, this is true.

If you can separate yourself from the irrational desires, you can satisfy yourself with what you have until you're actually done and need more. The problem is that "The Man" isn't going to let you do that, and will try to prey on your irrational desires, because his irrational desire tells him that the billions of dollars he rakes in "is never enough".

Let's all chase our tails like dogs for the rest of our lives.

Sad to say, a few of those games cannot be played on Windows above 7. There are things you can do to play them, but the amount of work you will need to put in, is typically not worth the effort.


I have most of those games and they work fine on 10.

'If only I had that phone/car/game/electronic doodad I would be sooo happy' Then people obtain the thing and realize it doesn't really change anything. Same reason so many celebrities/rich etc. get deep into drugs/drinking etc. because they can have any material item they want yet they still have an unfilled void (of course many also give back, getting involved with charities etc.)

I've had issues with Max Payne (No sound), Conviction (Not optimized for W10), and FEAR (Crappyly optimized, constant freezing, shame too as it's an awesome game), GTA SA (Need at least DirectX version 9...what??)
