Steam sales, deal or no deal?

Recently steam held their annual spring sale racking in millions of dollars in revenue from customers. This is not a bad thing at all, in fact it’s great for valve as a company and the gaming industry as a whole. Now, let’s go deeper into these sales. Steam has a reputation for seriously lowering prices on games during their sales, for example a triple A title such as Bioshock infinite (release recently) was slashed an entire 55%. Sales like this not only attract a lot of customers but also deplete customers bank accounts. We all know that feeling when we bought something we didn’t need and regret it later when you need money. That’s basically what steam sales are, you buy a crap load of cheap games you aren’t interested in but buy them because they are $2 and after about twenty or thirty you notice the bills rack up (especially if your dollar is worth less than the USD) I think just about every gamer gets sucked into one of these sales and regrets it, or completely takes advantage of it and legitimately enjoys all 30 games they bought. Share your thoughts about huge sales with me in the comments below. Does this happen to you or just me? I’m curious
