    Depends on what you already own!

    I've picked up Witcher 2 for £2.24, all three in the Bioshock series for £5.99 and Lords of the Fallen for £11.99!

    Tempted by Total War: Attila, but I've all these games to finish yet!

    I picked up some good bargins, but it is always worth checking the sale prices against the prices on kinguin. Managed to get a game for 79p on kinguin that was several pounds in the steam 'sale'.

    Every now and then a little gem. The Talos Principle.

    Steam don't even seem to be matching there own previous sales prices, generally I'm disappointed in this sale so far compared to the last couple years.

    The temptation is too much, I keep hovering over Project cars and so tempted, but playing Dirt rally at present.
    Is Project cars worth it if I already have Dirt rally?

    So far I have purchased the Metro redux collection for £6.79, I already own the original 2 that were in a past Steam sale.

    Project cars is a great driving sim but make no mistake on the higher difficulties that's what it is a sim game. On easy or with full driver aids it's pretty arcade style once you remove them becomes a lot more fun and challenging.

    Just looked through the encore and saw nothing interesting so my list this summer is as follows:

    Cities: Skylines
    The Fall
    Ironcast
    Little Inferno
    Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes
    Never Alone
    Road Redemption
    Saints Row 4 GOTC
    Sonic CD
    The Stanley Parable
    This War Of Mine
    Wings Remastered
    Wolfenstein: The New Order

    I was hoping to pick up Dying Light but the discount was minimal just like most stuff this year.

    Platformers/Sidescrollers
    Castle Crahsers - $1.50

    First Person Puzzle
    Stanley Parable - $3.74
    Antichamber - $4.99

    Point and Click Adventure

    I can say I owned and played all these games before the sale. If you're into any of these genres I can tell you that these games are awesome and totally worth the money. Buy them!

    Just reinstalled Battlefront 2 and modern warfare from disk but just come to reinstall world at war and disk is redundant even after clean:waah:. Another one in the sale CODWAW.

    I had already reinstalled from disk it at the start of the year but after installing windows 10 I decided to install the latest Ubuntu as well which ended disastrously.

    Bit of a c*** sale to be honest. I bought Telltale Games' Game of Thrones, Crusader Kings II and Max Payne 3, but was hoping for a bigger discount on GTA V.

    It's over!

    Total Damage:

    $13.59 - Talos Principle:
    $3.74 - FRACT OSC:
    $7.49 - Grim Fandango Remastered:
    $19.99 - Cities: Skylines:
    $3.74 - Valiant Hearts: The Great War:
    $3.74 - Octodad: Dadliest Catch:
    Total: $52.29

    You got me again, Valve! So far Cities: Skylines has been fun. I'm especially looking forward to FRACT OSC and Talos Principle as well.

    I did sell $5 worth of trading cards during the sale, so that's an extra 10% discount.
