steam summer sale

Steam’s annual Summer Sale is officially under way and now that Valve’s had a day to wait for its servers to level out, we’ve decided to take a look at what it has to offer this time around. While most of the focus in these sales is generally on buy-to-play or subscription games, there are deals to be found on items related to some of the most popular free-to-play offerings now available on Steam.

In fact, there are a lot of discounts to be had if you’re willing to do a lot of scrolling. That said, some discounts are a little “meh”; no one rolls into a Steam Sale for anything that has less than a 50% discount. But for the purposes of this list, we’ve decided to go with the serious discounts: 75% off or more, and on items that would cost you more than $20 normally.

Enjoy the sales listed below, but keep a close eye on your bank account. You don’t want to be eating ramen for the next month.
