Yes, time to hide your wallets and make your significant other change your PayPal password, the Steam Summer Sale has arrived to bankrupt you. Again. But if you’re just looking for the best deals on games you missed, there are plenty.
Fallout 4 and Doom
Bethesda showed up in a big way for Valve. Fallout 4 is currently half-off, putting it at $30, while the just-released, and quite well-done Doom is $35. If you’re just looking to grab one AAA title out of the sale and play it for forever, those are both superb choices. You can also find Dishonored for just $5, if you want to get caught up on the franchise before the sequel arrives.
The Assassin’s Creed Franchise
Easily the best bundle deal right now, you can get the four most recent Assassin’s Creed games for just $60, or pick up Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag for $7.50. All of them are worth it to some degree or another, and if you’re behind on your backstabbing and ship-sailing, it’s a fun time.
The hilariously gory sim game, where you’re supposedly an advance surgeon and have to try and muddle through a bunch of complex operations, is just $2 at the moment. Pick it up and get their Trump DLC to go with it, where you can replace the Donald’s heart with one of gold or stone. You should use the gold heart. It is, after all, the most luxurious.
This War Of Mine
Currently at $5, this side-scrolling game following a group of civilians trying to survive a warzone was critically acclaimed, and for excellent reason. It’s not exactly a gee-whiz fun time, but it’s a brilliantly compelling game and it’ll suck you in.
Hotline Miami 2
Classic Sonic Games
All the Sonic games on Steam are half-off, but let’s face it, you’re only interested in the Genesis titles, and nobody can blame you. Those are all $2.50 each at the moment, although we have seen those slightly cheaper before.
There’s a lot more to get caught up on, of course, but this will cover you for now. Happy shopping, and try not to go broke.
