God bless steam sales! I have 130 game on steam and the average I have paid is less than $10 each, most were $50+ at release. I all I have to do is wait like Bondfc11 said. I feel sad for the console guys...It is definitely gotten to the point I will never buy a new game on release. Wait 6-12 months you will get the same game for at least half off. I started this "wait and pay less" approach 2 years ago, and it sucked then since I was stuck with crappy, cheapy Steam games. Now however this approach is working like a charm since I have a good rotation going of games I buy in the cheap bundles, play those for 6 months, and a new one becomes available. If you can wait and get into this cycle do it - it will save you hundreds (thousands over years).
