Steam Sale - Too many Early Access games
Maybe you are trying to encourage developers to do early access or something. However, I am someone who has very little interest in paying for an unfinished game still full of bugs no matter if its on sale or not.

It looks if about half of the daily specials and flash sales at this point are early access variety. At least for me, this is making the sale seem a bit less 'spectacular'.

I would love some sort of account option that just simply hides the early access games from being displayed in my store list.

I agree with this. I do not think that early access games should flood the sales.

Its bad enough that "release" games are full of bugs lately as it is.

It's facinating that an Early Access game is the top selling game on Steam. It's DayZ and it's been popular for a long time, but still, the fact that it's outselling EVERYTHING since the standalone came out is pretty impressive.

I think its a welcome change to the usual Stuff...Asseto Corsa was the best purchase i made this year. Never would have, if it hadnt been discounted.

This is truly a new 'quality' in gaming industry - games on 40% (or similar) sale before they are completed and released

They're not flooding the sales...you have far more released games than early access.

They have just started the steam holiday sale, and will probably change the early access games to other games that are a year old but i do agree with this post.

so him owning more released games some how makes less early access games show up on the sale? logic is not your strong suit is it?

That's why we will see scammers selling games on steams early access sooner then later.

I don't buy early access games because the developers have no obligation to produce a product comparable to the price they're asking for, have no liability to progressing the development in a timely manner, and ultimately comes down to us releasing, willingly, all consumer power to the god-like excuse of "its early access, so we can do no wrong". If you're smart you would just avoid it all together.
