It is if you like futuristic post-apocalypse FPS shooters. If you liked Stalker, you'd probably like Metro. I got it on a previous sale, but haven't played it much yet.

Metro 2033 is mediocre at best. Nothing spectacular. Might as well read a book.

Along with the THQ sale this week, there is also a Halloween sale starting today going on until Monday with 50-75% off select games.

Now to debate getting Worms Reloaded for 9.99 or wait and hope it drops to 4.99 or something come US Thanksgiving or Christmas.

Today's THQ sale item is Frontlines: Fuel of War for $2.99 Save 85% on Frontlines™: Fuel of War™ on Steam

I bought it on a previous sale, thought it was worth the $5 I paid for it. Played through the single-player campaign only though.

You should also check the other steam specials as there a few not listed in the Halloween one that are also on sale. 2 of the Stalker series and I dont know what else.

But is there a reason why anyone buys pc games in stores anymore, with these steam deals......

People that want physical packaging will still buy it through stores. A bit stupid tbh..

Save bandwith and be reasonable on expenses. Yeah it sucks but that's how it is.

THQ sale wraps up on Steam with all Dawn of War games and expansions on sale for 50% off. THQ Week - Dawn of War Franchise - 50% off

Check out their Halloween sale too, too many games to list but there's some decent ones: Halloween 2010 Sale

I'll let you know about AvP later, it's downloading on the home machine as we speak. My son and I both played the original games a lot.
