If countless gamers are holding out for the Steam Summer Sale to stock up on games, then what we're really looking for from it are unprecedented prices. That wasn't the case last year, so let's take a look at 2014's offerings. As always, you are best served holding out for the flash sales that cycle every 8 hours.

Updated 10:15pm ET:

Looking at the front page, $4 for Don't Starve and $7 for Far Cry 3 are standard deal pricing, as are most of the prices in that set of 9. However, you obviously can't go wrong with The Witcher 2: Enhanced Edition for 4 bucks, and we love seeing pre-order discounts like $37 for Dead Rising 3 on here.

Our picks: Don't Starve, Witcher 2 or Witcher 1+2 Bundle, Dead Rising 3, DMC, Hotline Miami, XCOM and The Bureau Bundle
