I hope it's a little more inspiring than the last few sales.

There's some stuff still on my wishlist, but it probably needs to drop to dirt-cheap levels before I go for any of them.

I might buy more gifts for friends than games for myself

I am hoping to get some bargains but really I should not buy anything with 90+ unplayed games...but you know

GMG sale is live already, incidentally. I had a quick nose around but couldn't really see anything I ws that tempted by.

The sales on Steam have literally been the same for 2 years now. They really killed any sort of buzz around them when they got rid of the flash sales. Now it's just all plonked in front of you on day one and invariably you either won't care enough or won't be able to find the cool little deals that you'd never have otherwise thought to buy.

Considering the current format has led to better revenue according to developers, I can't see Steam going back to the old format. Personally I prefere this new way, it was always annoying missing a game because it happened to go on sale during the night. I also now know that a game will remain at the same price throughout the sale, so if it is something I really want I can buy it straight away without worrying about it reducing in price due to a flash sale. Or if it is something I'm on the fence about I have time to think about whether I want it or not.
