Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Steam Sales, ENOUGH!!!

steamsale

 

This weekend while most of us were eating turkey with our families, many stores and websites were setting up for what we call Black Friday, Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and many other events over the kickoff of the Holiday Weekend targeted gamers and their love of all things digital.  Amazon had a lot of lightning deals, Best Buy, Toys R Us, Target, Gamestop all had sales going on and video games were one of the big focal points.  I fell victim to Black Friday and didn’t even need to leave my house, I woke up at 8:08 am on Friday morning and purchased Lego Marvel Super heroes for $25.00 and Kingdom Hearts HD Remix (*which I have for PS2) ( ) for $19.99, then I saw that Steam was having their black friday sale and couldn’t pass up on getting Cities XL and Final Fantasy VII at reduced price,

Why must we obsessively collect games like Pokemon?  I know I have more than enough games to play but must get as many games as I can especially if they’re on sale.  I always say to myself just walk away, you don’t have to buy these things, but always ending up purchasing them, I guess  but I’m glad I’m not the only one because Steam sure does make out on their sales, So I guess we’re all a little game crazy when it comes to Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and of course the tri-annual Steam sales.

Did you brave the malls and stores on Black Friday, or did you take advantage of some gaming deals from your home like I did?  Let us know in the comments what you picked up?
