Three seriously sweet PC game bundles

If you can scrounge up a sawbuck or even just a fiver, you can score a ton of great titles. Plus: an Audible freebie.

Ten war games for five bucks. 'Nuff said.

What a time to be a PC gamer.

I don't mean because of the steady flow of amazing new releases -- it's definitely more of a trickle -- but because you can buy so many great games for so little money.

Case in point: I've rounded up three game bundles that are just embarrassingly good deals. Take a look:

1. The Complete Grand Theft Auto Bundle
With Grand Theft Auto V just around the corner , this is the perfect time to play the earlier games in the series so you know what all the fuss is about.

Green Man Gaming offers the Complete GTA Bundle for just $10 when you apply coupon code GMG20-4B9NY-L4FEN at checkout. That nets you five complete games: Grand Theft Auto III, GTA Vice City, GTA San Andreas, GTA IV, and GTA IV Episodes from Liberty City.

You'll need a Steam account to access the games.

2. The Heroes of Conflict Bundle
War is hell, or at least a hell of a lot of fun when it plays out on your PC. Bundle Stars' Heroes of Conflict Bundle comes with a whopping 10 war-oriented action and strategy games for $5.04.

I haven't played most of these titles, but if you check their ratings on Metacritic, you'll see that they mostly fall into the "pretty good" category. And for a mere five bucks, how can you go wrong?

You'll need a Steam account to access the games.

3. The Humble Origin Bundle

Say hello to the mother of all game bundles. As CNET's Chris MacManus reported last week , the Humble Origin Bundle comes with six top-tier EA games for whatever price you want to pay -- or eight if you beat the average (currently a paltry $4.82).

This deal is just sick. For under $5, you get Medal of Honor, Dead Space, Dead Space 3, Mirror's Edge, Battlefield 3, and more. Plus, a portion of your payment goes to charity. Even if you already own a couple of the games, do not miss this amazing bundle.

You can redeem most of the license codes via Steam, but a couple do require an Origin account.

OK, time to get gaming! Which bundle(s) do you think you'll get?

Bonus deal: Audiobooks rule (I'm currently enjoying Jim Gaffigan's "Dad is Fat"). For the first 100,000 users who claim it, Audible is offering a free $5 credit. (If you get an error, try refreshing the page.) You do need to have an Audible account (by way of Amazon, which owns the company), and you'll need to redeem that credit within 90 days. I don't know that you'll be able to walk away with an outright freebie, but at least you can defray the cost of your next purchase. (Tina Fey's awesome "Bossypants" is currently on sale for $12.99, so with the credit it would be only $7.99.)

Deals found on The Cheapskate are subject to availability, expiration, and other terms determined by sellers.
