Illustration for article titled RESULTS!!-Lets Play a Game: Steam Sale Hobo

Well, the Steam Summer Sale is in full swing, and I am one of those people unfortunate enough to have pretty much no money. So instead of wallowing in self-pitty I figured, "Hey, why not make a game of it since I can't really afford too many of the real games?"


The rules are simple: try to get me as many points as possible while staying within my small budget. Points are given based on my gaming preferences.



$10 plus any Steam-credit I scrounge up.

Point Bonuses:

1 Platformer Game gets 3 points.

1 'Splor'n Game (games with a heavy emphasis on exploration) gets 2 points.

1 game with both Platforming and 'Splor'n gets 5 points!

Any other game gets 1 point.


Got the idea? Good! Now help me get as many games/points as possible!

UPDATE!!- After a minor budgeting tradgety, I pretty much lost all my spending money. But fret not! By trading one of my rarer TF2 items for TF2 keys, and then selling those keys on the Steam market, I managed to scrounge up some extra money! So we're back in the game, baby!!
