Default x-mas games

What's the PC gaming line-up looking like for the upcoming holiday season, anything worth my hard earned cash?

All I know is that Steam has the best Christmas sale towards the end of the year. I usually keep $50-$100 just to catch up on games I may have missed during the year. I think last year I spent right under $50 and got 10-11 games. Steam FTW.

Not sure about this holiday season. But this next Tuesday Civ 5 comes out, and a week after that is Dead Rising 2. Definitely plan on picking up both of those.

BFBC2 Vietnam Expansion comes in fall. Close enough I suppose.

But what Six said - Valve has amazing Xmas deals.

Ah, got it. MP sounds cool. I rarely play single player games anymore.

Fine by me. I haven't played the previous two so I need some time to catch up.

Sounds like more than enough games for me. I'm sure a lot of my time will shift from PC to PS3 once GT5 hits in Nov.
