I spent a well balance amount of money on the summer sale sadly, but I guess that's what having an urge is like.

Nope. I don't use Steam.

I've never totally gone nuts during a sale. This sale I don't think I ended up spending anything. The stuff I wanted wasn't on sale for a large enough discount this time around.

I don't buy games, but I have spent a few hundred on in game items. And then another few hundred.

I did go nuts on buying games but I did my best to focus on things that I would actually play and enjoy and not just anything willy-nilly. A lot of titles I've been waiting ages for sadly were not on sale or if they were it was still too much at the time. In the past I've not splurged on Steam but a bit of digging revealed a lot of really cool stuff on sale that was at least 60% off and often somewhere between $1.50 and $4.

However even just looking at Shadow of Mordor, I saved far more than I actually spent and made out like a bandit. Mordor alone could had costed me anywhere between $20 and $85 depending on when I got what. I am not exaggerating on this as the price history for that game is insane. The games I purchased will last me a great deal of time and cost much less than one or two brand new console games let alone getting a PS4 or Vita.

I spent... almost $70 which is insane for me and only possible thanks to leftover money from the last two big sales but the vast majority of games were dirt cheap aside from Turing Test and Talos Principle. Witcher 2 and Shadow of Mordor will alone last me a great deal of time. I already beat two of the games I got with a third on its way to completion but they were also the shortest titles and point-and-clicks puzzles/adventures (not Hidden Object) while most of the games I got are Platformers/Metroidvanias or Action RPGs.

I ran the numbers. Going by their present list price I would had spent about $268, otherwise it'd range anywhere between $286 or $350 courtesy of Mordor. So spending about the price of a brand new Switch or PS4 title for what would had run me for the actual system and maybe a game if I'm lucky? I'm very happy with my purchases.

In truth the only regrets I may have are Brothers - A Tale of Two Sons (I've not gotten far yet so I'm hoping I adjust to the controls better but it is said to be a very good if short game) and World's Dawn (but I have similar regrets on Stardew Valley and I felt that as World's Dawn was in development first and I had been following that first it was only fair to get it as well). Also to some degree Azure Striker Gunvolt but that's because I already had the 3DS version.

I bought a few games under $10, nothing crazy. I'm too poor to binge-buy.

I only bought PUBG and Tower Unite, from my playtime I can tell I've been thoroughly addicted to Tower Unite. I never really buy anything in the sales which is dumb but that's just how I work.

Blew over $120, no regrets When you think about it though thats equivalent to 2 current gen games and I got like 12-15 decent games which is why my console days are probably over for everything non Nintendo.

That being said I only buy stuff on Steam during Winter and Summer sales, gotta get that bang for your buck.

On the Steam summer sale I spent $65, got enough games to equal out to about $200 regular price. I think it was money well spent.

In total I've probably spent a lot on steam but nothing over 300 I think... could be wrong. But its over time. Mostly on visual novels.

I think I spent something around the lines of $600-700 on the Summer Sale. About $200 were of my own purchases for myself, the rest were gifts for friends (offline and online). I think I ended up spending $80 just on "ShellShock Live" to give out, not including the $7 for my own copy of the game. lol

Most of my Steam games (I have a mere 374 games) are from Humble Bundles that I got in the past (between 2012-2015). But lately, I've been buying during sales when I see a few good games that I might end up playing for a while and are under $45.

I may have thrown money at the screen at some points.
Let's see, I've got 341 games on steam at the time of this post. And at least 200 of them are games I just bought during a sale that I have not even opened, but I have them? So there is that?

The most expensive single Steam game I've purchased was 40$.

Not too bad considering it was a port of a Vita game that would have normally been around 55$+ tax.

I don't have a lot of games in Steam, like maybe <25 titles, including some expansions of Civilization. It's so little compared to what the average is, but I like to keep my backlog low and not feel pressured to play just because I have them.
