Valve offers S.T.A.L.K.E.R. for $5

By Justin Mann on December 19, 2008, 8:17 PM
Every once in a while, a game publisher will wise up and offer a low-cost or even free treat to the game-playing public. Sometimes they are seriously behind the times and release games that are over a decade old for free. Some others throw some newer cookies out, and THQ and Valve are doing just that with a weekend sale for S.T.A.L.K.E.R.

This Steam-only offer has the original S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl game selling for a mere $5, a fourth of the regular current price.

Considering the game is not yet even two years old, it's certainly a good deal if you're a FPS fan. A full-fledged, modern game for only $5? Almost too good to be true.

Bought it as soon as soon as I saw the TS news. I also bought TF2 for 9.99 last week. Steam is a great option for people who live outside the US and have to buy overpriced games at retail stores.

Dude i would totally buy more games brand new in stead of second hand if i could get PC games, brand new current games, for 10 to 25 dollars. BF2 and fallout 3 are the only games I have bought retail in ten years of computer use. It just costs too much to pay 50 bucks for a game, and pay all yer bills too. Wonder how much they made today...
