Pixelitis Picks: Our biggest Steam Summer Sale faux pas

Call it a mixed reaction, but when Valve pressed whatever big red button they have out there in Washington that released this year’s Steam Summer Sale, a handful of us on staff both squealed in excitement and shuddered in terror.

You see, Steam sales area almost always a dangerous thing. On the one hand, videogames we’ve been waiting to play all year become dirt cheap, despite the fact that we tend to spend too much money on them anyway. Not to mention they just compound our growing backlog problem anyway. Really, who among us has the time to play all the games they picked up?

With this summer’s biggest digital sale now in the books, we at Pixelitis realize that we don’t have nearly enough time to play them all. After the jump, some of us outline some of the biggest Summer Sale mistakes we made this year.

Think of it as a cautionary tale. (Civilization V, Culture, Frozen Synapse, Frozen Synapse: Red, PC, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, Steam, Valve)
