Did you know PC gamers have a holiday tradition where they collectively groan (and brag) about all the cash they just blew on digital games? That's because every year, Steam holds a holiday sale with irresistable discounts -- and today's the day. It runs through Jan. 4.
There's an awful lot to sift through, but these caught my eye:
- Rakuen for $6.50 (35% off)
- Elite Dangerous for $7.50 (75% off)
- Bayonetta for $10 (50% off)
- Vanquish for $10 (50% off)
- Tacoma for $10 (50% off)
- What Remains of Edith Finch for $13 (35% off)
- Dark Souls III for $15 (75% off)
- Tekken 7 for $25 (50% off)
- Evil Within 2 for $30 (50% off)
- Wolfenstein II for $30 (50% off)
- XCOM 2: War of the Chosen for $30 (25% off)
- South Park: The Fractured But Whole for $30 (50% off)
And if you're looking for a way to wirelessly beam games from PC to TV... the Steam Link is an unbeatable $5 yet again. ( .)
Just don't expect to find a Steam Sale on PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG),last night. , that game is doing just fine without a discount at all.
Now, you might be thinking: Wasn't there a Steam Sale just last month? You'd be right: Nov. 22(or as I like to refer to it: "Oh yeah, we should probably take advantage of Black Friday.")
And just like in November, you don't necessarily have to buy from Steam to get your deep-discount PC gaming fix, because Good Old Games (GOG) is holding its holiday sale right now too. Plus, GOG's games are DRM-free. You download the files, and can install them whenever you like without relying on GOG's software or servers.
