    Just Cause 2

    Unreal collection (Unreal and unreal tournament originals and still amazing! So much mindless fun :D)

    And I'll wait for Dirt 3 next year, to unrealistic to be worth £11, I'll stick with race 07 for now!

    I got the final unreal game. I tried hard to like it.

    Head on over to origin beta and you realise how out of touch with the competition those people are... Mass Effect 2 for 19,99.

    9.99 on steam and it was less than 5 spoons yesterday.

    I picked up Blur, I played both Blur and Split Second on release, both were great games, but Split Second took up so much of my time, I never got around to buying Blur.

    Only other game I have picked up is Train Simulator 2012, for the price of a pint £2.49 it's worth a punt. I quite enjoyed mucking around with BVE in the past.

    Hoping something special is still to come. I like Racers and FPS's in general, a couple of decent racers under £7, or even £4 would be great.

    My problem is that I've already got all the decent games in the sale, from previous Steam sales and offers!

    I think that can be a problem, most decent, highly rated games are already purchased by people.

    Hoping we might see a few of the big releases of the year around £7.

    Games like TDU 2 for instance are worth say £7 or less. Not worth it at £19.99 or higher, but definately enough value at £7.

    Driver SF another good game that would be well worth picking up if it goes to £10 or below (although personally I have had my full price monies worth out of it).

    NFS HP if that was say £7 another great value purchase.

    Of the recent releases, I'd take a punt on Flatout 3 if it goes to £7 or below and also Ignite if it goes to under £4.

    I have to disagree with this. I bought it for £10 a few months ago and its by far and away the worst game purchase i've made in years. I would advise steering clear of this game at any price.

    Only by impatient people who don't think of the (pretty damn regular) holiday sales. There's no way I'd ever buy a game at release now, I've such a backlog to get through that it's no problem to wait til it's crazy cheap. The closest I've come was Portal 2, which I just never got round to having time for ansd subsequently bought it for a fiver t'other day =]


    The first Unreal's pretty dated now, UNreal Tournament on the other hand is still wildly playable, and 2004 and 3 are both amazing.

    I bought loads last year, but this year's sale is crap as. Only games I either don't want or already have seem to be on sale. Even the achievements are pretty dire.

    I still love the waterfall outside the crashed ship in Unreal a real wow moment when I first played it back in the day.

    I loved the castle intro on unreal back in the day.

    I had a voodoo 2 3d card back then.

    My main graphics card was a sheng labs cos it had 4000 colours.
