Steam Sale is On!

Yesterday, Steam began its annual sale of games. The marketing tactic was very clever for this. The introduce the treasure hunt a few weeks back, and made a requirement to log on the last day, yesterday, to be entered in the grand prize drawing. Then, when everyone logged on yesterday, Steam put their sale on. That made everyone arrive and find all these great games on sale. Now, to start you have over 1000 games on sale. However, there are a select few each day that go on sale at a ridiculously low price. Yesterday's sale had Battlefield Bad Company 2 for about seven dollars, and Super Meat Boy for about three dollars. Other games to note were Deus Ex, Fallout 3, and Portal. What I recommend is not to buy everything you want today. Buy only the games that are on the daily sale first. If, by the end of the sale, the game you wanted did not become a daily, then go buy it for the price it is at. I have a feeling most of the valve games are going on sale, so I am holding off on Half Life 2 and Left 4 Dead at the moment. I am also hoping that Killing Floor goes on the daily sale. Make sure you also have a budget when going through your purchases. You don't want to overspend and then realize you spent too much. It is very tempting to want to buy everything at once. Refrain from that and just wait it out. While you are browsing, I do suggest checking out the website http://www.steamgamesales.com/ when you have a chance. The website shows you all the prices games on steam ever were, so you can gauge if the game you want may drop to a lower price.
