I hate having a game backlog and this would just make things worse...

My backlog is long enough that I don't buy unless the deal is really good these days.

I had bought Sim City 4 for $2.50 a few sales back and started playing last week. After a few hours I began to rage as I tried in vain to build a highway and get all the bits to mesh up properly and recalled why I found that game so frustrating. Conveniently, Tropico 4 was on a 75% of weekend deal, so I picked that up.

I don't have Starcraft II and that's down to $20 right now so I bought that.

But XCOM and Walking Dead will probably be discounted deeper next year...I can wait...
