What's Happend to the Once "Glorious" Steam Sale?

The once “glorious” Steam sale might be getting a bit too traditional. They’re just not very special anymore.

Because of the constant sales, I hardly ever buy games at full asking value. I see this guys point.

ummmm but the steam summer completely decimated steams bandwidth =\

I don't get what he's trying to say.

So you are saying you would rather pay full price for games? You have plenty of opportunities when there is no sale....

Why the hell are people complaining about the best video game sales ever? What is wrong with you? Seek professional help immediately.

Are you kidding me? People were literally camping out during the summer camp sale.

In fact they game free games to lucky winners!

Didn't Steam announce that they were going to make changes to improve download speeds because there was so much traffic after the last Summer sale?

If you take for granted saving a ton of cash on games, the problem is with you, not Steam. Try paying $60 per game for awhile and you will quickly remember why those incredible sales are very nice to have.

As someone who despised Steam for many years as another worthless resource sponge on my computer, I must say I have completely converted. I saved about $300 on this past Summer Sale and have taken advantage of several weekend deals. If Steam can afford to do it and gamers get great deals it's win/win for everyone. Saving money is always special to me.

Yeah, they pretty much revamped their content servers so that they could serve up more content while at the same time not have to serve up as much content.

So if a massive file gets patched, you'll only need to download the differences in that file rather than the entire file.
