    The last game I got was L4D2. It was for free...
    I only have 2 games. The other game is also a free one.

    So yeah, summer sale is pretty much irrelevant to me. :p

    Yeah the majority of my games are free or gifted to me. It's amazing I've gotten even this many games without paying for them, ha.

    There's some nice deals going on in this sale. Actually a lot of interesting indie games that are cheap, like $1-5. Too bad even those, for now at least, I'm too cheap to pay for. But one day, I will go crazy on a steam sale. One day.

    I am just playing my old games from the 90's which I still have on pirated CD's.
    Good times.

    Or I am playing NES, SNES, Gameboy or N64 games on emulator.
    Yeah, I have a huge 1920x1080 screen and I am playing a Gameboy game in fullscreen mode!

    I bought Skyrim for $5. Never played anything like it--I've always been an online, competitive gamer. It's quite a different experience. It almost feels like how I feel when I read a really good fantasy novel in how it feels like an escape into another world. As opposed to Dota/League of Legends where the "human element" of constantly interacting with allies/enemies, as well as chat/teamspeak/Skype break any inkling of immersion.

    As I play Skyrim, I'm astounded by the detail and scale of level and environment design, and I just sometimes walk around aimlessly to admire it.

    A part of me feels like I got way too much for my $5 (which I did), but I like to think that Bethesda made enough from other sales to support themselves.

    Isnt skyrim just a cheap piece of crap compared to the earlier installments like morrowind and arena?
    The only things I ever hear about it is how they ruined the series and dumped it down with every new installment.

    When it comes to immersion Gothic was always a nice game. The divinity series was also pretty good.

    Lol, same here. Did you play summon night for GBA? Easily my favorite title. I also play a lot on my cellphone which has a GBA emulator. Right now I'm playing lotr: the two towers, which plays a bit like Diablo

    I heard lots of good stuff on Skyrim compared to Oblivion. E.g., revamped leveling system, being able to enter relationships, and some more.

    Obviously Gothic was great. Which divinity games are you referring to? I only played the first one (Divine Divinity), of which I still sometimes listen to the soundtrack (which is free). I remember buying it for two bucks in a supermarket, and when I played it the colors were all wrong. Turned out the graphics card in my dad's PC was too old... I only played it 5 years later on my own PC, but it was the best 2 bucks I ever spent on a game!

    Might be, oblivion was awful. The worst game I ever bought. I was comparing it to morrowind and arena though, and those 2 were very very good games.


    I also only played Divine Divinity, and I totally agree that the soundtrack kicks ass. Especially War & Peace, Sighs of Elvenkind and Time for an Ale were my favorite pieces.
    But I also heard that the other divinity games, especially Divinity Original Sin were very good.

    I got Portal 1 and 2, Bioshock 1 and 2, World of Goo and all the Serious Sam games :D. All of them for like 20-something dollars. Awesome.
