Most PC gamers are always on the search for the best game deals from around the web. Anyone who is lucky enough to have a gaming computer knows that one of the biggest advantages of playing video games on PC is the amazing game deals available when compared to consoles. These discounts can be huge, from 25% to 90% or higher! While most PC digital downloads are usually cheaper in general, the real trick is finding game deals involving special promotions or daily specials which can offer some of the largest discounts.
While almost all games go on a large discount sale at some point (I’m looking at you EA), there are a few games out there that will often go on sale for huge discounts! These are the games you should, at the very least, never pay full price for and always search for when you hear a sale is going on. Here are three of the best PC game deals available during sale season!
In metro 2033 you take the role of Artyom a post apocalyptic Russian inhabitant of the vast underground Moscow metro system. In an exciting journey that takes us above, below, and through apocalyptic Moscow we encounter everything from a psudo Nazi – Communist conflict to mutated monsters trying to rip you limb from limb. This is, quite literally, one of the best looking video games to date graphically. But beware: It takes a beast of a system to really max this game out, but if you have a gaming rig capable, it’s well worth it.
