Yesterday was Thanksgiving in America and today marks the second day that I am being contently stuffed on turkey, potatoes and stuffing. Today also marks the -now traditional- Black Friday event where people flocks to the stores for extreme sales on the most popular products to get the get a jump-start on Christmas shopping. Not to be left out, earlier this week Valve launched their Autumn Steam Sales with their famous major discounts on a majority of their catalog.
These major sales are the only time I cut financially loose I buy the games I have been keeping an eye on. Right now I already purchased the notoriously challenging Don’t Starve and classic Final Fantasy VII, while keeping an eye on Spec Ops: The Line and The Stanley Parable to be featured on the daily deals.
It is funny because while almost every other store are justifying going out incredibly early in the morning and spending money for the sake of others Valve is just having these sales to yourself. There are the standard 4-packs game bundles and the ability to buy games as a gift for your friend there is no advertised or in-store incentive to buy these games for anyone than yourself.
