Steam Summer Sale 2016: FPS Highlights

Since the 2015 winter sale, Steam’s changed the way sales work. Now, the price stays the same through out the entire sale. No daily deals, no flash sales, no community sales. It’s good for consumers because there’s not as much time pressure to jump on a good deal, and you’ve got the entire sale to make your purchases. I’m here to take a moment and point out some good deals on games I really liked. I guess I have a type, because these are all FPS games. But they’re brilliant.

  • Doom -40%/$35.99 – This is the new Doom, the one that came out a little more than a month ago. It is absolutely worth this price, especially so close to release. The game is fantastic if you’re a Doom fan, a FPS fan, or just really love good action games. It’s great. http://store.steampowered.com/app/379720/
  • Dishonored: Definitive Edition -40%/$11.99 – Dishonored 2 is coming soon. It looks amazing, but it’s got to live up to Dishonored, which is one of the best stealth action games ever. Definitive Edition bundles the base game, with all of the DLC. The important parts are The Knife of Dunwall and The Brigmore Witches, which add almost another whole campaign to the game. http://store.steampowered.com/sub/31292/
  • Deus Ex Collection -75%/$8.24 – You get all of the Deus Ex games for less than $9. Deus Ex: The Fall is absolutely skippable (a mobile game port), and some people hate Deus Ex: Invisible War, but Deus Ex and Deus Ex: Human Revolution are crucial cyberpunk FPS games. http://store.steampowered.com/sub/49738/
  • Metro Redux Bundle -75%/$7.49 – Both Metro games in their enhanced Redux form. These are grim, post-apocalyptic FPSes that are essentially Half-Life mixed with STALKER. http://store.steampowered.com/sub/44169/
  • BioShock Triple Pack -85%/$10.51 – This one counts as a good deal, not great. All three games are amazing and absolutely worth the price. However, they don’t include the DLC for Bioshock 2 or Bioshock Infinite. Minerva’s Den for Bioshock 2 and Burial at Sea for Bioshock Infinite are how DLC gets done right, so I recommend getting those as well. http://store.steampowered.com/bundle/572/
