Just picked up oblivion. Own the game on disk already, but at that price you can't say no to having a re-downloadable backup.

wonder if the daily deals will just be other games from that pack, or if some new ones might get discounted.

Not ALL current generation. The new wolfenstein isn't there (but at less than a year old, it's not a surprise). It's a good deal if you don't have the games, although some of the original prices are completely ridiculous... well actually nearly all of them.

no Im with you ... I have 90% of these games already and dont play them. Would be only as a downloadable backup that I would spend the money ... but then id never play any of them anyway... I mean who wants to play a game that's going on 20 years old? Well me... I just ran through doom 1 and 2 a couple of weeks ago but that's not the point.

You can get those from GOG at excellent prices. I think they're on Steam as well for about $15 a piece, maybe even less.

My brother pointed this out to me earlier.
I'm broke, but I may go for it anyways. -_-

I'd much prefer if it was just oblivion and fallout 3 together for $20 though. Maybe Fallout 3 will never be cheap. :( 

Reminds me of the summer sale on steam though. For a little over $200, I got ~35 excellent games. If I spend much over these next few days of sales, my pc game collection will finally overshadow my console game collection. :D

Forget owning a physical copy, the problem I have with these packages is that I already purchased some of these games on Steam. They should credit the original purchase when you buy one of these packages, otherwise they are losing business on some of these otherwise great deals. I bought the Doom package when it was cheap, and while it would only cost me $10 on this deal, that combined with the craptastic/too-old-to-be-worth-my-time in this mix make it enough of a drawback that I have to pass.

I missed this "summer sale" that was mentioned, when did that happen? I look forward to this year's Christmas sale though, that's when I go wild picking up great titles/packages for $2.50-$10 each.

Morrowind alone is worth the $70. =D Such an amazing game - much better than Oblivion.

There's also the matter of DLC. If you haven't bought the DLC for Fallout, that's where you can say $50 dollars went.

I can't stop thinking about this deal. I don't even play video games anymore! I religiously played these games growing up so it is hard to turn down having an online copy of everything.

I am still contemplating....

I almost bought the whole package right away but then I talked myself out of it. I really was only going to buy it for Fallout 3, Oblivion, and Morrowind. The rest of the games are classics but I can't seem to picture myself playing games from the '90s when I am so strapped for time as it is. Maybe if I wanted to collect them, but it feels weird buying something for collection when it's not physical.

I already have Oblivion, but for $8.50 I picked up the Deluxe edition alone because that price was good and I never got any of the DLC or expansion. I'm assuming that sometime this week we can pick up Fallout 3 and Morrowind for the advertised prices. THAT is a good deal. The $70 for the whole bundle... only if you actually want to play all of those games.

Not at all. Morrowind was an outstanding RPG. Whilst Oblivion was very good on the eye candy front, the plot, the sub-plots, character interaction, voice acting, breadth of environment (i.e. how varied the world and it's populations were) were all extrememly uninspiring and below par, especially considering it was from bethesda, who usually do all these things very well. TBH I found it quite boring after a while.

I'll be a devil's advocate on this, and say that the only games in the package that aren't ancient and worth little or no value are Fallout 3 and Oblivion... Oblivion + Morrowind for 30 bucks is "fair-ish" to me, and I guess 40 bucks for Fallout 3 is an OK deal... but this is definitely not anything I'm doing to be dancing around about.

Meanwhile... the regular prices on some of these games are just waaaay too high. 20 bucks for Q3 11 years later? That's just BS.

I don't think the wife would like me spending that much on games. I don't think I will get it because... Yeah it's a lot of great games but I've already played and finished most of those games. Plus, I just spent $60 on StarCraft II. To top it all off I just don't have the time to play games like I used to, there are many great games that I only wish I had time to play, like:
God of War 1,2 and 3
Super Mario Galaxy 2
Grand Theft Auto 4
Fallout 3
Modern Warfare 2
By the time I finish all of those more new high quality games will be released. I would but them if I had the time to play them but I just don't.

I decided to see if the offer was running in the UK too, and it was for £50, which is about right. But there was a much better offer, all the Doom games.

Ultimate Doom
Doom 2
Master levels for Doom 2
Final Doom
Doom 3
Doom 3 resurrection of evil

Price? All for £7.81 - ($10.90)

Massively Epic - that was an instant buy
