As day four of Steam's Summer Sale comes about, I find myself a tad perturbed by the structure of the sale as a whole. The voting is a nice addition, but users seems to vote for games that have already been on sale; though, as much as I'd like to blame users, it's Steam's fault for including games that have already been on sale in the vote. That said, the vote ends up being pointless as the games not chosen most often, if not always, end up as part of the "Flash Sales." I know I'm complaining about the worst thing to complain about, but it's annoying to see the same game on sale and highlighted multiple times.
One such repeat sale is Saints Row: The Third for 75% off—it was initially a "Community Choice" and now it's a daily deal. I'm sure plenty are happy because they somehow missed the first sale, but I'd rather see something new than something I saw just a few days ago. Getting Negative Nancy out of the way, if you did happen to miss the first sale and haven't played Saints Row: The Third, well, what are you waiting for? The game is fantastic and definitely worth the heavily discounted price.
Some non-repeats I recommend are the Hitman Collection and The Walking Dead. Hitman is wonderful series in terms of experiencing something unique and having more freedom than a lot of shooters regarding how you go about completing a mission (especially Blood Money). The Walking Dead—currently only through two episodes—is my favorite Telltale series by 500 Miles and is more immersive than any Bioware game I've played. The Walking Dead is what I want out of every future adventure game.
