I might have said AssCreed 3, but people seem kind of down on it.

Also, the new streamlined interface is useful at times, but also results in very strange behavior. For example: You hold R1 to freerun. But you won't jump if you are just holding R1 (to resolve the problems of Ezio and Altair jumping to their deaths at random). The problem is: Sometimes the gap between buildings is small enough for normal free-running, but sometimes you have to manually hit jump. And that isn't always clear.
But so far, I am definitely enjoying it. Even if Connor is even more robotic than Altair ever was.

I'll probably buy Dishonoured and Far Cry 3 if they drop really cheap (more likely to wait till next sale though as I've got other stuff to play first).
On the indie front might pick up either/both of Thomas Was Alone and Little Inferno if the price is right.

Side note: I, at one point, really liked Zelda games. So, you know I know the ever-unchanging formula by now. The hours-long length of the tutorial section in the newest iteration was enough to make me hate Zelda games and never want to play one again.

There are so many sales right now - on GMG, GG, GOG, Amazon and even regional stores - that I'm looking forward to the Steam sale only to see if they can beat the competition.

Honestly, if they just would have used a gimmick to close off most of the Manor and I hadn't read the previews I would probably have enjoyed it. But as it stood, I just realy wanted to play as the guy who is robotic as crap.
At least the British guy was fun since I kept saying a really long "Yes" like the Its Always Sunny episode set in colonial times.

Far Cry 3 and that's about it for now. There isn't much else I'm interested in playing I haven't already this year.
GFWL killed my interest in Dark Souls and that's the only thing other than FC I'd like to pick up.Virtual Pilot 3Dô NEVER NOT SCAM!

The sales on Steam aren't as good now as they were a few years ago. It's rare for anything to be discounted below 75%, whereas I remember 90%-off deals not being uncommon. And while the big games generally get cheaper and always go on sale, some of the older obscure stuff doesn't seem to be going on sale any more. I remember picking up Children Of The Nile for 50p at one point, for example, whereas it wasn't in the Thanksgiving sale at all.
I didn't mind the intro, I do suggest people go for all the optional objectives though, at least on those missions. That way there's some semblance of challenge. The new restart checkpoint option makes it really easy to give them another go when you mess up. I do think ignoring them, at least in the first half of the game, is effectively playing on easy mode.

I'm also willing to bet that, come sale time, at least half the naysayers will find something that will buckle their resolve :D

Keeping an eye out for:
-Lost planet 2. Just seems interesting.
-Hitman (new one). If it goes 50% or more off, I will grab it up.
-Far Cry 3. I tried to like FC2. I wanted to. But the respawn times, and never ending patrols ruined the fun. FC3 seems like a game that, while realistic at times, also remembers that it is a game
Other than those games, I am always on the look out for arcade-style racing games. Not race car simulators, mind; fun racing games. So...if anyone has any recommendations, I would appreciate it.
Now, back to Deus Ex: HR, which for some reason I hated for a year and have now fallen in love with completely...weird.
Edit for Walking Dead, as judging by reviews and discussions on this site, it seems to be quite the tale and worth pointing and clicking at.

Skyrim DLC and Far Cry 3. Maybe Endless Space too but I really want to work through some of my backlog. I'll still be working through it come the summer sale so no rush to get any other games right now.

As much as I don't think you should have a huge backlog (and most of mine is stuff that came alongside a bundle), I don't think you should force yourself to play games to clear a backlog either. If you're forcing yourself to play something, why are you playing it to begin with? The question then becomes why did you buy it, and what can you do to avoid this?

Does anyone intend on setting up a thread for the sale itself? I know we're not the biggest forum in the world, but organisation won't harm. Also, it gives us a chance to think up good titles! "Steam Christmas Sale 2012 - Welcome to the party, pal!" is still up there for me.

I'll probably get a couple of indie games.
I have a craving for a good P&C adventure games, so I might pick up Primordia.
Other than that I think I'll postpone all major purchases until I finish with AssCreed 3 And FarCry 3.
