The Daily Grind: Do you budget your Black Friday MMO and Steam purchases?


So here we are at the dawn of another Black Friday, and in spite of the fact that I really hate the FOMO nature of this day and the whole week really, I’ve been socking some money away for all fall for this season’s inevitable gaming sales.

Of course, I have some rules. If it’s on Steam, it has to be deeply on sale and already on my wish list – no impulse buys if I can help it – and it has to be something I’ll play in the next year. Likewise, I have a list for my buyables in LOTRO and Guild Wars 2, too; for LOTRO, I’ll try to buy points when they are effectively on sale so that I can use them for sales all year, and for Guild Wars 2, again, it has to be something on my list that doesn’t often appear for sale. (I still want a noodle cart, ArenaNet. Take my money!)

But not everyone plans these things; some folks just sit back and don’t jump until a sale grabs them, and that’s OK too – as long as your Steam library isn’t judging you. Do you budget your Black Friday MMO and Steam purchases? How do you decide what to get and when?

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!
