  1. Lol, these are the best deals?

    Besides the fact it’s all USD based when everyone isnt USD.

    A lot of these games people already own or aren’t on a big enough sale in my useless opinion.

    The main sticking point is how few of these “best” sales are on this list. I also noticed a lack of focus on some big name indies that are on sale.
