I just recently built my first PC and have been picking up games on the cheap when I can find them. I currently have: Skyrim, GTAIV Complete Edition, ARMA II Combined Operations (DayZ mod), Star Wars The Old Republic, Hitman: Absolution Professional Edition (pre-ordered), Hitman: Blood Money, Hitman 2: Silent Assassin, Hitman: Codename 47, Metro 2033(unplayable due to .exe error very pissed about that STEAM.)
I am hoping to get Battlefield 3 Premium Edition for cheap this holiday shopping season, I am patiently waiting for game deals. I also would like to pick up The Witcher 1 and 2, with my next paycheck for pretty cheap. Any other recommendations? I was looking at Planetside 2, however I hear it is really a rough build at the moment.
This being my first time with a holiday shopping season for PC games what can I expect to find in regards to deals on PC games? Due sites generally discount aggressively on big name titles during the holidays? I am familiar with STEAM, ORIGIN, AMAZON, GAMEFLY, GreenManGaming and some others.
I'm located in the US I am assuming most deals will be online considering the utter lack of stores that cater to PC gamers.
Because I'm not entirely sure of the kind of games you actually like, I can't say a lot. But check out Dishonoured, Darksiders 2, and Lord of the Rings: War in the North. These are really nice and fairly recent RPGs. If you're into multiplayer FPS games, like Battlefield, check out Counter Strike Global Offensive and the CoD series. Modern Warfare 3 and Black Ops 1 and 2.
Other than this, just hit Google and Youtube and check out trailers and information on games released in 2011 and 2012, I'm sure you'll find loads that you'll like.
