Weekend game deals: Steam's summer sale has begun

By on July 13, 2012, 2:30 PM

Steam's long-awaited summer sale has finally commenced, with over 5,000 games currently discounted. Naturally, we can't include that many titles here, so we've just added today's hottest promos (some of them will expire in mere hours, so act quick). Although Steam will likely hog your attention until July 22, other distributors have noteworthy deals, such as Amazon's $15 THQ Action Pack and Civilization IV + V for $11.99. GameFly has big savings on BioWare games, GamersGate offers L.A. Noire for $9.98 and Green Man Gaming has hundreds of discounts as part of a seasonal sale similar to Steam's.

Wow...the second highest rated game (tied with 4 others with a 90 Metacritic score) is a soccer manager simulator? For real??

ive been watching it all day. picked up a CS:S + garrys mod bundle for 12.50 USD. IDK if its still there, but if you want both those its worth it.

Damn I bought Max Payne 3 when it was 39.99 lol. Guess I was a little too excited.

You'd be surprised, those football spreadsheet games have dominating our charts for over a decade... sad really isn't it?

Yes, I figured out that sometimes I have more fun buying games than playing them. Now I am a lot more careful when Steam has these sales.
