How frequently did you game though? You can't just up and quit.
EDIT: Also, just out of curiosity, what was the duration time between when you hacked and when you got banned? I need to get a good portfolio of this. I know two people that got banned within 2 weeks.
I posted in your topic, but I'll copypasta here as well as other info in your profile.
My solution for you is to wait until your games are on sale. The last game I ever bought for full price was Trackmania United. Everything else after I bought for at least 25% off. Christmas is your best bet. By doing this, I've probably saved over $100 on STEAM games.
So you might not be able to get the latest and greatest by doing this, (also ignore the $5 off for preorders, it'll be lower at some point) but it saves you a shit ton of cash.
EDIT: I forgot to mention, new account as well.
