So many tempting prices for the games on the Summer Sale with Steam. How many did you pick up? Myself, I bought about 15 games - mostly in bundles.

None on Steam -- personally I dislike Steam, although I understand it works well for some people.

However, less than a month ago I did end up splurging on the Good Old Games 'No DRM Summer Sale' (though everything on GOG is no DRM).

The games are a little dated (usually), but for ~$40 I got 29 games for my wife and I, which included pretty much all of the Might & Magic series, the Heroes of Might and Magic series, the Myst series, a bunch of RPGs (Witcher 2, Neverwinter Nights 1/2, Baldur's Gate 1/2, Icewind Dale 1/2, Planescape Torment, etc), and a few other random games.

Most of them we haven't even started yet (and for me personally, I really don't have much time for any games whatsoever these days), but they're there when I want to play them!

I got Civ 5's Brave New World during the -33% sale it wasn't supposed to have, along with a couple other games.

Only used my Steam account to play Portal 1+2 but now, it's got a grapple on me because of Civ V. The DRM is gross in many ways, and trying to buy anything from Steam was a hassle.

Also got a slew of DRM-free games from the Amazon summer sale. That was great. Got some gems like Bastion, and I discovered the original Tradewinds for sale too. Fun times.

Now to add them to the backlog. ;_;

Some of the sales were very tempting, but I had to sit this one out. I'm saving money for something very important. Idea
