VG247: You have a gigantic library of Steam games you buy in sales then never play. Why would you spend money on something you don’t use? Julie Horup searches for answers.
Love Steam. I try to play as much as I can.
why my wallet/credit card loves steam sale.
the only time i've bought something i've never played is when i purchased one of the first indie bundles for a specific game or two in the collection and i never got around to trying all the other games it came with... i would never buy a specific game on steam, or anywhere else for that matter, and never play it. what kind of dumbass would do that?!
I bought Brutal Legend for 5 dollars but it kept getting pushed back on my priority list as new games and other deals came out. Guess i'm a dumbass..
my dumbass self bought a ton of games i never got to play because i couldn't afford it / didn't have a PC decent enough to play them, so i bought them. i saved tons of money from the sale and can finally play them...super excited...in the dumbass kind of way
yeah, if you buy games you buy games you're never going to play you ARE a dumbass. you're not 'saving money' by buying games your not playing, your wasting money.
There are some that go unplayed that I buy, but I work alot. playing is what retirement is for in my book. Don't ruin my retirement plan. Those sales give me a great value. Only a fool wouldn't buy. What I want to play I try to play. Bandwith holds me back from downloading em all, but some I have reinstalled 2-3 times with different PCs I have used.
I just bought Skyward Sword for $15, part of a limited sale for Best Buy Reward Zone club members. I don't plan on playing that game anytime soon but I couldn't pass up paying $15 for a $50 game. Even if I never get around to playing it (but right now my kid is playing).
