Steam’s Holiday Sale – It’s On!

The best deals you’re going to find on PC games all year are happening right now on Steam, including incredible bargains on entire game libraries. All Square/Enix games are going for 88% off, a mega pack of 2K Games titles is 81% off, and plenty more.

Christmas time is a great time to be a PC gamer. It’s the time where we reap the benefits of our chosen platform by getting absolutely ridiculous deals on some of the best games around. You won’t find anything out there that gets PC people more excited than Steam’s annual Christmas sale.

There are over 1,000 games on sale at ridiculous discounts. Every day brings another set of daily deals – discounts that last 24 hours. I’m writing this on Monday when games like ‘Deus Ex’, ‘Super Meat Boy’, ‘Battlefield Bad Company 2’, and the entire ‘Prince of Persia Series’ are discounted heavily. From today to January 2nd, there will be more daily deals and more huge discounts.

I’ll keep this post short and sweet, since you should really be heading over to Steam to take advantage of these insane bargains. Below are highlights of some of the best deals available. Feel free to pitch in with your own discoveries.

  1. I can’t access Steam’s website from work, but when they say stuff like “Square Enix Edios Complete Pack”, I wonder if this includes Final Fantasy and Tomb Raider. I mean, its already a great deal, but if it includes those, then that is a steal!

    • The only Final Fantasy in the pack is XI, but you do get Tomb Raider Underworld, Legend, Anniversary and the new isometric one (which is awesome) Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light.

      • Awww, no Final Fantasy 7 or 8? Then again, FF7 was almost impossible to get to run right when it came out in/around 98, and only supported 8-bit 3D. However, they could bundle the PSX version of FF with a PSX emulator. Shoot, the Kings Quest Collection comes bundled with Dosbox!

        Of course, I believe the only legal PSX emulator was Bleem! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bleem! and even though they won in court against Sony, the legal fees forced them out of business.

    Huzzah! Today’s deals include Burnout Paradise and The Witcher for $5.00, both of which I’m buying now.

    Bioshock 2 is $10 as is Resident Evil 5.

    Puzzle Quest is $1.50 – if you don’t own it you should.

    There goes another $20 or so. I’m waiting until after Christmas to shell out for one of the big packs. If I can get everything I want in Daily Deal form, I might not have to!

  3. Today’s Deals:

    Assassin’s Creed II: $15
    Just Cause II: $7.50 (I’m picking that one up!)
    Modern Warfare: $15 (Doesn’t seem like a great deal, but worth mentioning)
