$3.50 for super meat boy is hardly a deal, I doubt id buy it at $0.49 horrible steam sale.

I remember paying 3 bucks for this game a while back. Definitely one of the best entertainment for 3 bucks I ever spent.

Op is 100% correct. In the past Smb has been 80% off in both gmg and steam sales, and more than 99% off in a humble indy bundle.

I can only assume there is a large demographic of people who vote for what they recognise and/or already own, rather than what might actually buy.

Idiots :/

I hope valve reevaluate the community vote feature as it's somewhat flawed at the moment; most of the votes this year have resulted in minority winners(<50% total vote), meaning more people have gone away unhappy than happy.

Welcome to how voting works? I mean how exactly are you going to re-evaluate a voting system when it's accomplishing what it sets out to do. Polls open up, votes are placed and counted and the winner is decided accordingly. I'm chalking this up to " such and such title didn't win, why did this one win?" complaint.

You ever stop to think people like thes games and vote towards them to be on sale for friends to pick up, or the "unbelievable" that some people actually do not have that particular game? How about people who aren't familiar with Humble Bundles, or were not around for past sales? Too bad the game you or anyone else were eyeing for didn't make the community pick. Voting isn't going to be landslides where everyone walks away happy, that's an impossibility and in futility.

This is in my top few deals ever on Steam for time played. Well...eventually. STill trying to finish of Isaac and the achievements first.

If the other two games are not of interest I ALWAYS vote for the best game there even if I have it. Other people should get them. :)

Terraria for $1.99
Binding of Isaac for $2.49
Dark Souls (even though I got Platinum on the PS3 already TWICE with it) for $7.49 and all the new content
Fallout: New Vegas Ultimate Edition for $4.99
Borderlands GOTY for $7.49 (I think couuple years back I got it)

It surprises me you even need to ask such a question; but I guess I'll answer anyway to be polite.

There are many kinds of voting systems; first-past-the-post as used by Steam is deeply flawed when there are 3 or more options.
e.g.
60% of voters don't want A, but have no preference for B or C.
Assuming a large enough voting group that random variance is minimized, who wins? A, always.

I suspect this is precisely the scenario that is playing out in the vast majority of Steam's community votes.

Switching to a preferential system (voters rank the games in order of preference) would address this issue.

deal with it

Comparison, has often been man's largest weakness. There have been various psycological studies that prove this. The fact that the game has been on sale for better, is an arbitrary concept to its actual worth.

TL:DR - The game is great, the price on the deal was great, you're wrong, research psycology.

its a nice deal i think...
dylwhaa Jul 25, 2013 @ 7:59pm

dylwhaa Jul 25, 2013 @ 8:56pm
