Really? Yeah! It can happen! You can choose not to buy crazy amounts of cheap games !
(Quiet Boromir, let us dream)
In just 5 easy steps you can be well on your way to keeping your money in your bank account! Hooray!
"But why would I want to do that," you ask?
Because you're never going to play all of them. Never.
If you haven't played Final Fantasy 7 on your pc in the past 16 years then odds are you aren't going to play it now.
"So where do I start?"
Step 1. Figure out what games you actually want to play.
Now, this sounds crazy, right? You may think to yourself that you'll never load your cart up with crap. But let's be honest. We're all weak willed consumer whores.
So we need to understand that the best way to win the game of "keep my hard earned money" is to not spend it on crap you don't really want in the first place.
Step 2. Fill your wishlist with said games.
Indeed. Avoid the sales at the moment and search out each individual game you want.
Add them to your wishlist.
Step 3. ONLY check your wishlist to see if said games have gone on an acceptable enough sale.
A novel idea, I know. But the main page is for those that want to lose money. Bookmark and go directly to your wishlist. 50% off of Borderlands 2 is not enough. Come back later. 75% off or better!
Step 4. Avoid social media and sites like this where people are super excited over getting super meat boy for $3.44 and Farcry 2 for $2.49! (seriously… worth so much more than that)
Oh! And the cave for $3.74? that game was awesome!
Step 5. Sit in wonder as your library of games is actually filled with games you want to play.
Be in awe of yourself! You're pretty much the only person in history out there with a manageable library of games in steam (present company included).
Bonus step. Ruin step 5 by buying enormous bundles of games you don't really want or need for like 6 bucks on humble bundle. Because woo! Cheap!
7 strategy games for 6 bucks or more?!? Sold !
