Really only the games that you would expect received a kind of 'good' discount, and that is nothing special. I suppose hardware bundles were ok, but that was more of buy an expenisve bundle and get a couple of games, rather than any deep price cuts. I did not go out (it would take a lot) and bought nothing online. I have a feeling there will be some good sales on software mid to late December again.
I am sick of Bleck Friday, it gets dumber each year, and it seems like the bargains are less each year. Or did you do well?
a lot of newer games were crazy cheap, i know evil within
and quite a few others were 24.99.
So there were definetly some good game sales, but that
much madness isnt worth it to me lol.
I'm glad that you started this thread, because it leads to another question: is this commercialism ruining Christmas for our generation? I ask because I have two close friends who both HATE Christmas because they believe that it symbolizes the worst aspects of our culture. We're willing to trample people, get in fist fights, rip things from the hands of strangers, all so we can get something at a reduced price. What does that say about people, or how they really see Christmas? Honestly, I love Christmas, and I think a lot of that has to do with ignoring the ugliness of "events" like Black Friday.
What do you guys think?
Websites like Flipkart have a wealthy stock of products, yet people camp in front of Wal-Mart.
Not everyone has the internet but even at a Ramen Noodle budget you can still get limited internet for a decent price just to shop online for Black Friday.
Flock of the idiots.
There's no way i'm going to risk getting stomped to death by going shopping on black Friday, no thanks. It's way safer and less stressful to just shop online.
Don't hate the holiday, but I sure as hell feel sorry for all the employees that have to deal with the chaos.
PS4 with two games for $400...still too pricey for me. Maybe next year.
Some of the "Lightening Deals" on Amazon weren't bad. The only thing I got was the DC Scribblenauts game for Wii U. Ten bucks didn't seem bad.
I don't think commercialism is really ruining Christmas and I don't think going out cheapens the holidays, hell my family almost never celebrates Thanksgiving at home because my mother HATES making dinner for that occasion as it's far too much work, so it's much easier for everyone to just go out to a restaurant to celebrate it instead.
In the past i've gone to see movies on Christmas Eve and this year i'll probably go see either "The Interview" or American Sniper.
Those kinds of people who push others aside don't need holidays for an excuse to get into a fistfight, they'll do it whether it's black friday or not.
So no I absolutely do not believe for one second that Christmas symbolizes the "worst aspects" of our culture in the least.
