Yeee! I'm gotta get this. I sadly don't own any of the games in this pack, never really played any either. ::

Well I will soon. ::

I would love Dirt 2 for $10... not getting it on Steam though. Oh well.

I never played Dirt anyway, despite buying it, so what the hell am I talking about.

Hmm somehow tempted, but are racing games really any fun? My usual experience is no

I know what you mean. However, I own both dirt2 and grid and I must say that I'm rather impressed with both games. I play them with a 360 controller and they tend to be more on the arcade-y side of racing games. They can be challenging and fun to master. If you're questioning whether or not to picked them up, I wouldn't give it a second thought.

The steam version of dirt supposedly doesn't work in Win7. The retail one does after they patched out starforce, but the patch does not work on the steam version according to the steam dirt forums. Shame, I wanted to grab dirt just to have it since I liked the demo I played on the PS3. Still I probably wouldn't have played it much since I have dirt2 from the D2D sale.

I am thinking about fuel though.

FUEL is a decent underrated open world arcade racer for the non-ADD adventure type that just like to drive, especially for that low price.

I was gonna get everything on the list except Fuel and TRD3, but it turned out to be more money ($18), so I just got the whole pack.

FYI They ran out of FUEL keys. So it won't run till they get more. I should have installed X3:TC first I guess. But steam is slow as hell to download today, I can barely break 1MB/s

Dirt works on Win7 for me, Steam version.
