    That id Super Pack might be the best deal ever. I got it for 50 last year and it was a steal then too.

      It's pretty amazing that all of those games still work today -- I know they've been tweaked, but still...

      It's easily one of the best deals on Steam.

      I'm here trying to remember what was the launch price for Doom 3, lol. Hell, you wouldn't buy the D3 expansion for $23. ;p

        DOOM 3 didn't launch on Steam of course (Steam was in its infancy and it would be years before third party games were on there) but I think I paid $54.99 at GameStop when it came out. It was $50 at least.

          Yes, I meant retail, not steam. :)

        It was $55. I remember that really clearly. Never understood why it was $5 more than every other new AAA game released at the time. I suppose it was because it was Doom!

      It is tempting me severely. But I have bought compilation packs before out of nostalgia, and then realized that I am not really going to spend a lot of time playing those old games. Plus, I still have the CDs of most of those games lying around if I every really feel the need to install them and fire them up for a few minutes of nostalgia.

      I wish the OLD stuff was included with that.

        Like pre-Wolf 3d stuff?

          Yes, there was a whole bunch of stuff: side scrollers, puzzle games and even a ninja side scroller.

      It's really quite a bit of money for a bunch of rather old games that all the old timers, who would appreciate them most, already have. About the only games I don't have would be Quake 4 and ET:QW, neither of which that pack includes (understandably, but it's still worth pointing out).

      I think the Eidos pack would like to have a word with you. Jesus, there's so much goodness there, it's going to kill my bandwidth allowance for the month!
