The Steam Winter Sale Begins

It’s officially winter. Deep Winter. You know what that means: Steam Sale.

This is the big one, or at least, the final big one of the year. If you need to get some last-second (Christmas is in three days WHAT ARE YOU DOING) holiday shopping done, here you go.


This year’s sale is pretty barebones. No big theme or meta-game or anything. Just the Steam Awards and a lot of discounts. Here are some good ones:

Also Civilization VI has been discounted the teensiest bit, so I guess there’s no better time than the present to go fuck up history.


So then, get to it.

You’re reading Steamed, Kotaku’s page dedicated to all things in and around Valve’s wildly popular PC gaming service. Games, culture, community creations, criticism, guides, videos—everything. If you’ve found anything cool/awful on Steam, send us a message to let us know.

Kotaku senior reporter. Beats: Twitch, streaming, PC gaming. Writing a book about streamers tentatively titled "STREAMERS" to be published by Atria/Simon & Schuster in the future.

I hate the steam interface more and more all of the time.I feel like their algorithms are so far off and they’re just trying to force feed me an endless stream of shit. It keeps suggesting farm simulator. I have specifically told their system at least 30 times I do not care about Farm Sims.

I truly prefer the old layout from 3 or so revisions ago when it showed me what’s new, sales, and some recommendations but it didn’t try to guess every single damned thing I may want or like.
