    Of course the one fucking "Dark Souls" game I don’t want is in this sale and the other two aren’t.

    Well, SRTT Remastered is worth that price I'd say. Not a game I think I could ever find un-fun. Funny to see My Friend Peppa Pig amongst these titles haha

    That DS2 SOTFS price laugh

    Still hoping to see DS3's season pass some time soon, it's been on sale a bunch of times then as soon as I've decided to want it it's disappeared.

    Ah yes, My Friend Peppa Pig is exactly the game I think of when I hear "next-gen".

    And of course, the stand out winner of this sale is clearly Peppa Pig. Game of the Year right there.

    I can't believe people will pay these prices for DS games when I literally got them for less than half digitally laugh

    They have had multiple discounts running concurrently for a few weeks now.

    And here's another & already see a few digital-only games that are new enough & never had a discount before.

    TLDR: The only valid complaints are 1) overabundance 2) too little $/time

    Nope. I'm sure there are a variety of valid complaints, here's one...the discounts on most of the games in this sale are not very good. Many of these games have been on sale with bigger discounts in the past and as an example I can get Cyberpunk on Amazon for under $17.00 and it's been under $20 for months.

    17 USD plus Taxes and shipping.
    So 17+2+5=24

    OK, if you haven't played Psychonauts 2 - just get this game. Such a joy. I finished it soon after it came out and it's one of those games that really sticks with you. It stands the test of time.

    I will try as someone who really liked it.

    If you were Dead Island and you really liked Mirrors Edge you could decide to have a child. You would call that child Dying Light.
    Happy Gaming

    Since I loved Dead Island and hated Mirror's Edge where does that leave me?

    Thanks! Always saw the potential in Mirrors Edge, even if it didn't blow me away!
