Another end to an eventful year is nearly upon us and what a year it has been.
We’ve seen the rise and eventual fall of microtransactions in video games. Ajit Pai has unveiled his large teeth and lips to the world, and we have been shown that the corporate aliens have no heart for the consumer.
Luckily there is one thing we can be sure of and that’s the Steam Winter Sale. Although this year hasn’t been regarded as a ‘great year’ for gaming, you can still enjoy some awesome offers on many positively critiqued games.
So head over there now! or keep reading this article to find out some of the biggest names and discounts, among this years list.

These are just some of the major titles which released recently this year. As you can tell most of them have seen large price drops. (please note: that this sale won’t last forever and prices are always subject to change).
In addition to these games, there are many other titles which are virtually free due to this sale. For example, Portal 2 a rather old but highly regarded co-op puzzle classic, is now priced at $1.99 USD. Likewise, you can pick up The Witcher 3 (the complete collection) or Grand Theft Auto 5 for around $20 USD. Left For Dead 2 is also priced at $1.99 USD.
Indie developed games have perhaps taken the biggest price cuts though, with most of them sitting under $10. The Long Dark (A story-driven survival game set in the middle of a frozen wasteland) is priced at $8.74, after taking a 75% price cut. Whilst Terraria is now at $5 USD.
