Vote for Monaco, and FEZ would be a repeat anyway, not that I don't love me some FEZ.
• Community Sale Left 4 Dead 2 ($5) | Repeat
• Flash Sale PES 2010 ($14) | I hear a lot of people like soccer. Good price.
• Flash Sale Trine 2 ($4) | This has been this cheap before or close to it bundled with the first game, but I am a fan of the series and would call this a buy.
• Flash Sale The Testament of Sherlock Holmes ($10) | Even if you're a Holmes fan I would still wait for a bargain basement price on this
• Flash Sale Mass Effect 2 ($6) | Wait for a deal on the trilogy, or 2 bundled with its DLC.
Riptide is terrible and Left 4 Dead 2 would be a repeat, so I voted for Infestation. [I'm obviously just being absurdist, there's no way Infestation will win this voting.]
• Community Sale Torchlight 2 ($5) | I know a lot of people wanted Gunpoint to win but this is also a great deal on a great game. • Flash Sale TrackMania2 Canyon ($10) | You already know if you're the audience for this, price is decent. • Flash Sale Poker Night 2 ($2.50) | You could probably just wait for this to free on iOS • Flash Sale The Swapper ($7.50) | This was actually one of my most anticipated deals, then I realized there was no Mac version. Anyway, yes, buy it. • Flash Sale Spec Ops: The Line ($7.50) | A poor excuse for a flash sale. Awesome game though. Get it bundled with Bioshock 1 + 2 for $8.50 on Amazon using one-time use code GOONCAVE
Vote for Gunpoint. • Community Sale Deadlight ($4) | Like I said before, been cheaper in bundles and such. • Flash Sale Impire ($5) | Unless I'm mistaken this is the worst reviewed game of the sale so far. • Flash Sale Doom 3 BFG Edition ($5) | I see a lot of retailers try to basically give this away to entice people into bundles. • Flash Sale Ace Combat Assault Horizon Enhanced Edition ($9) | If you want the genre this is basically your only option. I would still wait for a cheaper price.
• Flash Sale NBA2K13 ($7.50) | I have actually had a lot of readers complain about getting this as part of 2K bundles. Don't even want it for free.
• Lead Deal Kerbal Space Program ($14) | This is a pre-release game. I think it's actually the deal commenters have most requested in this sale.
• Hitman Absolution ($6) | Repeat.
• Sanctum 2 ($7.50) | I would wait for a bargain basement price if you're curious.
• Total War Shogun 2 ($7.50) | Repeat
• Fallout: New Vegas ($2.50) | Buy the $5 Ultimate Edition, which has been $4 in the past
• Remember Me ($30) | This is another case where I don't think most come to the Steam sale to buy $30 items. This has also been this price before.
• Portal 2 ($5) | This has of course been cheaper in bundles, etc., but a case can also be made for it being the best game of the generation, so there's that.
• Eador Masters of the Broken World ($12) | Greenlight game. Looks cool, haven't played it, positive reviews. It's a good sale if you were in the market for it.
• The Sims 3 ($15) | Update: I was not expecting anyone to care about the Sims, so yes, not a good deal.
• Arma II ($4.41) | I would just wait for Arma III. However, if you want to play Day Z, buy the combined operations pack for $8.50
