The Steam sales model has created this strange PC price strategy where publishers keep original MSRP on titles indefinitely so the retailers can boast 80+% sales. I remember only noticing it with Call of Duty at one point and now it seems to be the standard.

Assuming I haven't played anything on this list or even gamed much at all for about a decade - any suggestion for must haves that are a good deal? Was thinking about getting Fallen Order, Star Wars Squadrons, Far Cry 5, Doom Eternal, maybe Rainbow Six Siege, hopefully some others as well.

I just got Doom Eternal a month ago for $29 and I feel like it was money well-spent.

I’m tempted by Star Wars Squadrons but the reviews I’ve read say it’ll disappoint anyone who’s looking for a modern X-Wing vs Tie-Fighter.

I appreciate the feedback - I'll definitely get Doom Eternal then. I'm willing to take a chance on Star Wars Squadrons I think, even with the reviews about limited content, etc. I bought an inexpensive flight stick and would like to try it out with something before buying MS Flight Simulator.

Assasin's Creed Origins is it best played on PC or console as far as controls go?

Blasphemy.
I do not like using WASD to move though....always used mouse.
lol there is some truth to this. I have used Right Mouse Button to move forward in all games for the past 20+ years. I actually enjoy it, as I can both look, move, and shoot with one hand (my right). This allowed my left hand to dance around the keyboard as needed, especially in the left side of the kb. Also makes drinking a beer and moving easier too. W is used to jump. Space is interaction

Yeah just think about it, right now if you use WASD, your left middle finger is basically permanently attached to the W key at all times. This limits your hand to QWEASD keys. With RMB, your right middle finger is always pressed down, but your hand could still cover the mouse anyways so this isnt a problem. But now your left hand is free to press any key on the left side of the kb

LOL - I spent a couple minutes with my hand on the keyboard trying to figure out how you could use your index finger on W and still hit the other necessary keys before I replied. Glad to see it was just the wrong finger listed and there wasn't some gaming technique I've missed all these years :LOL:

My middle finger isn't glued to W...I use it for S also, but you still have an interesting point.

Using E,S,D,F instead of W,S,A,D is good for opening up more keys around your movement, too. Depends on what type of game you're playing.

Yeah, I do this because with the little tab on my F key it's easier to get my fingers back in proper position quickly if they get askew hitting a function key or something.

When i played quake1 in tournaments i would use YGHJ because right above Y is 6 and 7 which is rocket launcher and shaft. i played this ways for years until i got tired of remapping all game keys and just converted to WASD
it also has a bunch more neighboring keys to use pinky could easily take X and C were as on WASD it can pretty much only cove shift in horizontal movements.
using YGHJ also keepts you away from keys that uses esca sequences and thereby less likely to hit a maximum amount of keys held down at the same time. off cause in newer keyboard desings it is less of an issue

I play it on my pc and I enjoyed it. Really fun SP campaign, and the MP isn't bad. Devs are releasing a free update soon of being able to play B wing or tie defender

I use a xbox controller

I picked up Control + Death Stranding, doubt they'll be cheaper in Steam winter sale, plus got an additional 9% back from purchasing at GMG

GMG seems to have the better prices of all the holiday sales as far as I can tell between Steam, Epic, and GoG.

got an additional 9% back from purchasing at GMG
I'm curious. Is this a 9% discount they're offering or is this from using a certain credit card?

4% back from Rakuten for shopping at GMG + 5% back from my Chase card for paying via PayPal with it.
