I wonder how many people still actually pay for these, I definitely pause more months then I pay for now and I imagine that's true for a lot of people holding onto their classic plans. They bundling a "headline" game with a bunch of not great stuff, but the headline games a lot of people already own...

I wish they'd just not do that and maybe have higher quality indie games for the whole bundle instead.
Got Eternal the first sale after release, and unfortunately I happened to buy OlliOlli World during the winter sale last week, but the rest of them look interesting enough. Also comes with a 60% off voucher for both DLCs within humble store, but I think it's only maybe £0.20 cheaper than buying it on steam - and more expensive than getting the Year One Pass.

Honestly most of the headliners I either own or am not interested in with Humble Choice, but helps me to find new indies. Often I'll enjoy a game from it that I would not have bought otherwise.

Still salty they dropped any linux builds and support a little while back though. I've seen some people have Humble Games Collection working under Linux but I am yet to get any progress with that myself.

I do. I almost never pause a month. I am way too lazy to! :D
In months with duplicate games or games that don't interest me, I usually find someone in my family to take the extra key off me.

It's true that in some months the filler games outnumber the desirable ones by a fair margin, but to be honest, you can't expect 10 blockbusters every month for 12 bucks a month. Them going back to 10 games instead of 12 seems to have improved quality as of late. Sometimes less is more. As for AAA games vs Indie - I like to think they need that one big name game to attract attention. Yes, it has occasionally resulted in me getting duplicates of games I already own, but this wouldn't be any different with Indie games. Most of the time I don't buy new games unless they're on sale anyway, so I am still getting a lot of AAA games from Humble I don't already have.

@Kimyrielle: same here.

I enjoy the bundles mostly because of the games I would otherwise not buy/notice. I've played a few extremely memorable ones just because of Humble Choice. I believe Police Stories was one such recently and The Pillars of Earth I think a while back ... to name just two.
sign me up to the lazy folks.

I’m a ‘classic’ subscriber since.. can’t remember.
Is there still an advantage for classic?!

There a times when I don’t even redeem my monthly games and all of a sudden I’m checking three month back for what I already have.

But I don’t want to cancel. There’s always a hidden gem in that pile of digital shame that is worth playing and most of the time it is a title I would not have bought as a single title purchase.

That's actually what I was talking about. I wish they'd stop including blockbusters and raise the quality of the filler instead. Typically when I pay for choice, I only want one or two games from it, then I try and give the rest away. Keyword is try, because friends and family never want that crap either. Typically I can only ever off-load one or two keys to someone else, usually it's if there is desirable game I either have zero interest in or already have. Pretty much everyone I know is "over" adding junk to their libraries...
