And I have to agree with you about Steam. That damn service is killin' me. I have a really bad habit of buying games for a few bucks just because it's on sale. For example, I just bought the Alan Wake Series for three dollars. I will probably not even play it for at least a few months but it was just three bucks so I bought it. It's going to sit in my list collecting e-dust.
On top of that, I have buttloads of PS3 and Xbox games that are still sealed because I bought them for dirt-cheap and just never got around to playing them. Titles include Red Dead Redemption GOTY, Uncharted 1, 2, 3, Dante's Inferno, Ni No Kuni, Tales of somethingorother, Resonance of Fate, .... .... omg way, way too many.
