Steam Gaming - Bad Bundle Buying

Posted on February 18, 2023

I've been terrible about keeping to my resolution to buy less games this year, and I blame it all on bundles (namely Fanatical bundles). They do have good cheap bundles, but I generally just want one, maybe two, of the games, and end up having to pick three or four.

So far, I’m ashamed to say, I’ve picked up:

  • Alchemist Simulator**
  • Anvil Saga
  • Catizens**
  • House Builder**
  • Dungeons 3 - Complete Collection
  • Cultist Simulator (With all DLC)**
  • Shadowhand: RPG Card Game**
  • Heroes of Hammerwatch**
  • Cat Lady - The Card Game**
  • Monster Slayers - Complete Edition**
  • AVICII Invector: Encore Edition
  • Cat Cafe Manager**
  • Airborne Kingdom
  • I Am Fish
  • The Wild Eight

The good news is that all of the games that have (**) are games I’ve actually played since purchasing. I’m making a good effort to stick with the “buy what you play” goal. Interestingly, I discovered some of the games I picked up on the side just to fill out the rest of the bundle were the games I ended up unexpectedly liking – even more than the game I thought I was buying the bundle for.

So, finding sudden likes has been a fun part of bundle exploration. I just need to keep up with what I’ve bought and not take this to extreme. My backlog is already too large as it is.
