Top games on Steam summer sale.jpg

Last month, the Steam Summer Sale dates leaked, and it was spot on as the floodgates to PC gaming's biggest annual sale opened right on time. This year, you have a secret weapon that can stand between the sale and an empty bank account, a tool that lets you see how much money you have spend.

If you don't care about such trivia, then jump right into the sale with our top 25 games you absolutely have to buy right now. The sale runs until July 5th, so there goes your paycheck.

Steam Summer Sale Top 25

Need to get into the mood for Fallout 76? Then grab any of the games in the series at 50% discount. I know PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is not all the rage at the moment, (that would be Fortnite), but if you've ever wanted to buy the game on discount, then you should grab it right now at 33% discount for R214. I reviewed the first episode of The Council, and highly recommend the game for those who enjoy adventure and investigation games. Steam is offering the complete season at 15% discount for R314.

Some of the best games I've ever played have been Indies, so here's a few you should grab while on sale. RiME at 50% discount for R160, Candleman: The Complete Journey at 25% discount for R79, and Orwell: Ignorance is Strength for R63. The last game on my Indies list is, This Is the Police that you can grab at 67% discount for R53.

From Indies to triple-A games. Those wanting a challenging should grab Dark Souls III at 75% discount for R200. The Phenomenal Rise of the Tomb Raider is waiting for you with a 70% price cut, yours for only R210. BioShock: Infinite is available at 75% discount for R80, at that price, buy two and gift one. Prey is something you simply have to experience; after completing it our reviewer stated that the game was so "outlandish I am still tripping" you can experience that at half price for R225. Never pass an opportunity to play as BJ Blazkowicz, and you can grab his last Nazi-stomping adventure, Wolfenstein: The New Colossus, at 60% discount for R320.

Ready for the scare of your life? Grab the masterpiece that is RESIDENT EVIL 7 biohazard at 35% discount for R305. Our reviewer, Mr Minnie, is a horror game fanatic, and according to him "it is exactly what a true survival-horror experience should feel like. Staying with that horror theme, you can grab another stellar title, The Evil Within 2 at 60% discount for R320. You will find it to be an intense and immensely satisfying experience.

What can we say about Far Cry 5 but that it is one of the best games we have ever played. It's fun, it's mad, it's beautiful and buy it right now at 25% discount for R637. It is worth every cent. We had some good things and some bad things to say about Cuphead, but at 20% discount you can grab it for only R175, and that price settles all arguments about whether you should play this challenging game or not. Those who have the itch to play a proper fighting game should grab Injustice 2 at 20% discount for R319. Our reviewer called it "the pinnacle of fighting games" so grab it before the offer expires.


One of our top games of 2017 was Assassin's Creed: Origins, and you can grab it right now at 50% discount for R425. Origins was not only a spectacular comeback for the series, but also one of the greatest comebacks in gaming. Talking about comebacks, Call of Duty: World War II finally gave fans of the series their reason to return, and it didn't disappoint. If you were waiting for the game to go on sale, then grab it now at 40% discount for R479. If you enjoy classic RPG games, then you have to buy Torment: Tides of Numeria. It is a game for hardcore RPG fans, and simply a must-by at 67% discount for R198.

Earlier last month, I reviewed South Park: The Fractured But Whole on the Switch, and as a South Park virgin, I found the game to be a pleasant surprise. You might think that it's not your thing, but I urge you to give it a try, and at 67% discount it's totally worth its price tag of R280. Everyone needs to play at least one South Park game and this is the one. Another game that is a must-buy is Middle-earth: Shadow of War, the game's nemesis system is its crowning achievement and sets it apart as one of the best action RPG's we've played in recent years. It's a stunning entry in the Lord of the Rings series, and won't disappoint fans of the genre. You can grab it at 66% discount for R316.

If you're looking for a great co-op game, then look no further than Ghost Recon: Wildlands. At 67% discount, you can buy two at R280 a pop. For us, it was a game that delivered some of the best co-op moments we've had in years. Sticking with Ubisoft games, For Honor has had its ups and downs, but the developer has been adding fantastic content, and the biggest one will release soon. Now is your chance to join the battle while the game is at 75% discount, which means you can grab it for only R212. Dishonored: Death of the Outsider offers a symphony of death and destruction and is a must-buy at 50% discount for R200. Our reviewer called it a "magnificent, brutal, and uncompromising experience."

Lastly, if you buy one game on the Steam Summer Sale let it be Hellblade. It's a life-changing experience, and for me, it was the most important game I have ever played. Steam is offering it at 40% discount for R191.
