Keep in mind with Dragon Age; the expansion, Awakening, is horribly bugged. Guaranteed to leave you frustrated. The main game is mostly fine though.

Awakenings wasnt that good anyways, even with the bugs. The main game is where it shines. I did pick up the ultimate edition though, figured I should have it all anyways in one nice tidy bundle, was annoyed that my CE dlc wasnt in it though.

Against my better judgement, I bought Kane and Lynch: Dog Days for five bucks yesterday.

For the same price, I could've gone to McDonalds, rubbed several cheeseburgers over my face, gotten diarrhea, and that would have been a better use of my time and money.

Cheap games generally suck.
Some people say there are some good ones, but there's always a catch to it.

There are TONS of great indie games out there that I paid like $5 each for. Some of the best games I have ever played were 'cheap' games.

AFAIC I'd much rather drop $5 - $10 on an older game (or indi) with exceptional gameplay/replay value than $50 on something with pretty graphics, but either crappy gameplay, or (even worse in my mind) no replay value once you've spent 20 hours on it.

Same. Can't believe I actually beat the game. Such a crappy game. And then trying to somehow get my money's worth I tried playing online but there was only 1 other person playing this game online.

Too bad most of the sales are for games I already own or don't want to own.
