Okay, this isn't a "what did you buy" thread. Rather, I'd like to bring up some news that has surfaced since the summer sale ended this week.
According to Steam Spy, this Summer Sale blew the last one out of the water. Approximate revenue of $236M(2016) versus $160M(2015), 37M games sold(2016) vs 33M games sold(2015).
I find that surprising, considering how people always complain that these latest sales have been the "worst sale ever". So, how come the sale is far more successful this year, despite having fewer discounts, no daily deals and in general less discounts? Is it because of the refund system that has been implemented?

I'm surprised by that too- for my part I didn't make any large purchases this year compared to previous sales (buying what Bioshocks I was missing and Road to Gehanna for Talos Principle), there seemed to people pissed off about what kinds of sales were up. But the internet is an echo chamber, so maybe there were some things people liked this year and gobbled up.

I only bought one thing, which was to upgrade Skyrim to Legendary Edition. I got to do that for less than 50%, so I still say good sale.

For me it was meh simply because there weren't any games left that I really wanted to buy. I picked a bunch of them up in previous sales, so this time around all I purchased was the Half Life pack.
