Steam’s annual Holiday Sale introduces new metagame
This year Steam is really switching things up with its annual Holiday Sale. As usual there are tons of great deals for good games at almost rock-bottom prices, but on top of that they are also doing a sweet metagame.
Each day there are several achievements attainable for several different games. Its an interesting way to get people to buy the games and a great reward for those who have already bought them. Anyone who gets the special achievement will receive a gift on Steam that is redeemable or tradeable. You may get a lump of coal, but this gives you entry to a sweepstakes they are doing next month where you could win every game on Steam. Pretty intense. In any case, get to playing and buying!
