LOL, you mention about people who are depressed about going back to work, then you talk about the "good news" being sales on video games. So.....people who are depressed about going back to work can now play games at a lower price when they're supposed to work?

Or suppose to get a job...not that I'd know anything about that *whistles*

I don't understand why people are wanting AAA-only titles. At least play other games and not just Call of Duty all the time. At least give these casual games a try. Most of them are great if you actually play them and not just look at the screenshots and say "nah". you are not a gamer if you only play CoD, or AAA only titles.

There is, I find those games frequently on sale on any one of these gaming sites and EAstore.com sometimes, you just need to wait for the next sale.

Why are there never any sales on good AAA games such as Mass Effect, Mass Effect 2, Dragon Age: Origins, Dragon Age 2, Mafia, Mafia II, Grand Theft Auto IV, and so on.

The only sales I ever hear about are these games that I have absolutely no desire to ever play.

If this summer is anything like last summer for Steam there will be a big sale with lots of AAA titles on sale. I remember spending a good amount of money last summer on Steam's days of summer sale.
