Mirror's Edge, Rollercoaster Tycoon 3, and Defense Grid now purchased. I already have both STALKERS, plus extra copies of each that came with graphics cards, so no luck on that deal :(

Yeah I got Torchlight over the weekend. Absolute digital crack, I only wish I had started my first game on harder than normal, I got some good items and a few upper skills and my character can tear through dungeons like crazy now.

Steam's super cheap game sales over the last 3 or so months have gotten me to buy more games than I had for a long time prior to that. The demos are what sell me half the time. Thinking about Deus Ex GOTY edition, a classic game that I never played. The only things I have to think twice about are ones where I'd really like to have a manual (some RPGs and RTS) so I always check etailers for boxed versions too.

I need to browse some more - I'm on the digital bandwagon might buy a few games I already own (UT series???) if it means I can register them on Steam and get rid of the CD's =) - it sure is a heck of a lot easier than managing patches and finicky optical drives...

[EDIT]: Looks like that $2 S.T.A.L.K.E.R. deal and the others mentioned in the OP are only for the next 26 hours or so (there's a timer on the steam store homepage). Better move on that if you want it (I sure did)!

Looking forward to seeing (rather,"blindly hoping for") some EA stuff 90% off in the coming days (C+C, Dragon Age, Mass Effect, etc)!

Never played STALKER ... good game?
I read up on some reviews, thinking for 2 bucks it must be a cheap flash game carryover... but wow! It looks very, very nice and is very well reviewed by ordinarily harsh game critics - I can think of dumber things I've wasted 2 bucks on - can't wait for some "me" time to give this a run-through (family arrived yesterday for the holidays)!

I'm in the same boat. I was very, very wary of Steam and all other digital distribution "stores," but the EXTREME convenience of being able to install/uninstall games I own on any computer any number of times without dealing with discchecks, SecuROM, CD-keys and other DRM headaches is frankly amazing. I wish all of my games and software could be registered with Steam, but alas too many other software developers (Microsoft, Blizzard, etc) are trying to compete with "digital stores" of their own to make that happen... maybe someday!

Killing Floor is $10, good deal.

I'm thinking of getting the unreal pack, but already have UT3 and UT99 from the last deal, so it may not be worth it for me.

Wow some great deals on steam right now. I have to say if you haven't played Mirror's Edge yet buy it now! $4.99 for that game is an amazing deal, I hope they make a 2nd one.

The Rockstar Holiday pack is impressive, but not my cup of tea since I have trouble enjoying the GTA series:
Grand Theft Auto
Grand Theft Auto 2
Grand Theft Auto 3
Grand Theft Auto IV
Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
Grand Theft Auto: Vice City
Manhunt
Max Payne
Max Payne 2
Midnight Club 2
Wild Metal

$87.42 Individual price
$69.99 Package price
-$23.10 Holiday Sale
$46.89 Total!

Personally, I LOVE Max Payne 1/2... they also fall in the "I own it but I'd buy it again on Steam" category, but not with all that racing/GTA flak attached :p

I've sprung so far for Mirror's edge and STALKER myself... I'd jump on more but my wallet's already strained from holiday shopping and I think that's a well spent $7 that should last my gaming sweet-tooth for awhile... will certainly pay attention to tomorrow's deals though!
