Happy Holidays: Deals

What a great year we had. I witnessed some warm moments here on Dtoid : Anthony Burch's proposal, The Dtoid show... We can also agree that a plethora of great games were released across all platforms. With so much to play, who has the money to buy them all? For me, this normally puts obscure titles at the bottom of the list. When the holidays approach though, we get blessed with low prices. I don't know about you, but the Black Friday deals on Amazon and Steam killed me. I found myself stocking up on games and even buying games I wouldn't even consider before. The great thing is : I sometimes discover new gems, and then cringe at the idea that I didn't play them before.

Sure it was frustrating as hell sometimes, but it was so magical. I have no other words to describe it. It takes a curious mind, a willingness to try new things, and a motivation to do so. Sure, VVVVVV was a given for me. But for someone who doesn't like a certain genre, how can you convince him to try your game? A stupidly low price might help. Who bought the many Steam indie packs on Black Friday? I did. I was interested in AudioSurf and ended up playing more Rhythm Zone. I had no idea it existed before. Who got tempted by Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom once the price went down on Amazon?

Of course, there is so much goodness out there. Don't blow your hard earned money on those deals all at once, and enjoy them. I wish you all a happy holiday.

P.S: The indie packs were the most disgustingly amazing deals, ever. Also maybe the Humble Indie Bundles. It makes a nice gift. :)

About Nic128one of us since 8:54 AM on 02.27.2009

Hi all, introductry post. (Side blog edition)

I'm Nic128, 25 years old, gamer since 1991. Started with a SNES and worked my way through the generations. I got a NES after my SNES though, well, whatever.

I discovered this community a few years ago. I then realized, damn, there are civilized people that love and talk about video games. Awesome.

Here's what I currently own (Systems : History of purchases) :
- Gamecube
- PS2
- DS Lite
- PSP 2000
- Wii
- PS3
- Snes
- N64
- 3DS

Yes, I bought a Snes and N64 after my PS3. You know, nostalgia.

Games I love/loved the most :
1. Zelda : Ocarina of Time
2. Zelda : Twilight Princess
3. Tales of Symphonia
4. Golden Sun (1 and 2)
5. Zelda : Wind Waker
6. God of war
7. Tales of Vesperia
8. Resident Evil 3
9. Zelda : Majora's Mask
10. Banjo-Kazooie

I suck at anything FPS, RTS, MMO. Unless I'm playing with friends, I don't play competitive games. I get angry when I lose against better players.

Besides games, I love Fullmetal Alchemist, Table tennis...

And that's it.
