Best Steam Summer Sale Buys For Me Thus Far

Posted on July 16, 2012


The Steam Summer sale has been draining gamer’s bank accounts for a bout 5 days now. Now that we have reached the halfway point of the sale, what games are a screaming buy? Here are a few that have caught my eye:

1. Skyrim – Only if it is at least 50% off. The price has already dropped to that point once and odds are that it will happen again. While I doubt it’ll go any more than half off, you never can predict Gabe Newell

2. Assassin’s Creed Pack– The complete pack of all Assassin’s creeds to date is a great buy at $35. I made the mistake and bought it at $50 so profit from my misfortune and always remember to be patient, almost everything has gone on a 50-75% discount at least once.

3. Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic– Not the MMO but the classic Bioware RPG that came out almost a decade ago. While the graphics are little dated, at $2.49 its hard to pass up the amazing gameplay.

4. Fallout New Vegas Ultimate Edition – Having a new Windows 7 64-bit rig, Fallout 3 doesn’t run on it without crashing, so rather than betting that Bethesda will patch it I figured I might as well buy New Vegas with all the DLC for $10.

5. Mafia II – A great story in a beautiful setting, wait for it to drop back down to $7.49 though.
