We’re in a bit of a post-holiday 2010 lull at the moment, so I thought it’d be a good time to reflect. It’s time to look back at 2010 and pick out some “deals of the year”.
If you’re curious about last year’s result, just head over here.
Digital Distribution Deal of the Year
Winner: Fallout: New Vegas Digital Collector’s Edition for $29.71 ($20 off) @ Direct2Drive
A non-Steam sale for “Digital Distribution Deal of the Year”? Blasphemous? Not quite. Allow me to explain.
Just a little over a month after release and this game gets a hefty $20 off on Direct2Drive. It was a timely sale, there was plenty of time take advantage of it (weekend sale) and it was a deal for a game people wanted. We wouldn’t see a similar deal like this for another 30+ days on Steam. Plus, since this title was a Steamworks game,we were activating it on Valve’s service anyway.
Runners up: Super Meat Boy (PC) for $3.75 on Steam, Amnesia: The Dark Descent for $9.99 on Steam, Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit for $19.95 on Direct2Drive
