Steam was a gift from the gods when I got back into pc gaming a couple of years back.

However, I'm at that point where I can't remember the last time I bought a game. I've bought loads of humble bundles and such like, plus hammered a few steam summer sales. There is literally nothing left to garner my interest.

Im in the same boat, way more games on my list then I can play. I have just started to be way more picky. Pre ordering what I want when there is a deal offered. I have borderlands the pre sequel and gta 5 coming for PC and tomb raider and Diablo and halo mcc coming for the BONE and I am good for a long time.
