Vanilla vs. Game of the Year - Need help with purchasing decision..
Here's the situation: I have till monday afternoon to be able to download any games I buy during the sale. Afterwards, I will have to wait till Jan. 6 before I can play any purchased games. Hopefully the game of the year edition will come up as a daily or flash/community choice soon.

But if it doesn't before Monday (or even at all during the sale), would it really be worth it to dish out the extra 20 bucks for the goty version?

I still want to buy Starbound as well, and my budget for this sale is 50 bucks. Dropping the extra 20 would mean that I would have 5 bucks left over and only two games bought (granted they are games that you can get lots of hours out of).

With all that in mind, would it still be worth it to get the goty edition? Or just vanilla for now and be able to afford more games for this sale?

GOTY is better all around for the extra classes and dlcs

Thanks for the input, man!! :) However, I didn't really ask "which is better" in this post. :P

Your posed question is not 100% clear to be honest which would explain the previuos anwers and I am not sure if I am answering your question either.

Also I fail to see when you can download the games has any effect on what you should buy.The only thing that effects this choice is your budget and balancing what you want vs what you can get.Honestly no one but yourself knows the best choice here.

I would say buy BL2 GTOY and Starboud so what if you only got two games.what is better two super cars or 20 regualr cars?

The other thing to consider is that BL2 may not go on flash sale.

I bought the game a while back for the full prcie at the time $29.99 and it was money well spent.

Great answer, Mr. Cat. :)

Also this:

I thik you you should buy the games that you want if you only buy two games during the sale you missied out on nothing becuase you purchased two items that you wanted all in all a good deal.Even if a person where only to purchase one game during a steam sale they got a good deal.

I would say buy BL2 GOTY and Starboud if those are the games you are most interested in.

is very sound reasoning. :P I am *thiiiiiiisss* close to just doing that. haha!!

When I can download them is important to me because I don't want to buy it now or soon-ish and have to wait till Jan 6 to be able to play. Objectively, it plays no part in whether I should or should not get the game, but as a personal preference I don't want to have an awesome game sitting in my library, totally unplayable for a couple weeks. D: haha!! You feel me?

I, too, was initially going to just spend $10 on vanilla. A friend talked me into GOTY and I'm very glad I spent the extra $20. Both the added classes (Mechro and Psycho) are SO MUCH FUN. They are way more entertaining than the original four classes, in my opinion. The DLC campaigns add a lot of content: additional maps, additional main story missions, additional side missions... So this game will keep me busy for a very long time.

If you can drop the cash, get the GOTY. I did and have soooooooooooooooo much more to look forward to then if I had just gone with vanilla. Plus decided to start with Gaige rather then the 4 you only start with in vanilla (want to try the psycho next character). You won't be dissapointed if you go GOTY, plus it keeps the what ifs if you don't get it.

Borderlands 2 GOTY is very much worth the extra. GOTY has much content, two added classes. Just go look at the included content.

the game is pretty pointless without DLC just like the fallout games and is diffently worth the extra 20 for all the extra content and almost all the DLC(missing the upgrade pack 2 and all 3 of the headhunter DLC)
