Much to my dismay, the Steam Holiday Sale is still going on. Maybe it'll never end. Maybe discounted PC games are the new standard.

Don't enable Valve and its world-ending ways. read
Steam's trottin' out its (approximately) two-week train of titles, hoping to sell a few more units of each. As the consumer, you get to give a personal yay or nay on every single one of these.

I'm not sure why we need to keep designating official titles for different days to spur consumerism around the holidays. I mean, people need (and want) to buy stuff; they'll spend money regardless. Black Friday's fine. It's b... read
