The annual Steam Summer Sale is upon us, and while Steam isn’t the only game in town these days, it’s still the biggest online PC gaming store out there. The Summer Sale is the best time to load up on cheap games to add to your ever-growing backlog.
While there are many, many deals on Steam right now, for the purposes of this post I’m only including games that are at least 40% off or more. So while you can find great games like Devil May Cry 5 for just $39.59 right now, it’s only 34% off and doesn’t qualify for the list proper. That means that a lot of newer games won’t make it onto this list since they rarely get such steep discounts this soon.
With all that out of the way, let’s take a look at some of the best deals on some of the best games on Steam during the 2019 Steam Summer Sale.
#1 — Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is the most sprawling, in-depth, RPG-like game in the long-running Assassins vs Templar series from Ubisoft. Honestly, in some ways Ubisoft is the new Bethesda, giving us these huge roleplaying epics while The Elder Scrolls 6 remains . . . a mystery.
Right now, the game is 50% off at $29.99 and it’s well worth your time and money. I’m still not a huge fan of the combat, though it’s better than past games, but the story is great and there’s just a ton of content to sink into. (Bonus: Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag is 66% off, for just $6.79. I love that game).
