Deals You Shouldn't Sleep On From The Steam Summer Sale 2022

It's time to surrender our wallets to Gaben!

June 24, 2022

Many believe that the quality of Steam’s Summer Sale has degraded over the years. Once upon a time, we had flash sales with some games being offered for throwaway prices. Valve has now streamlined the sale and the deals remain constant for the entirety of the event. But with so many games available to grab, there is always a dilemma concerning which ones are actually worth a buy. But if your budget isn’t an issue and you are looking for the best deals, we have got you covered.

Ghostwire Tokyo

With so many big-budget titles released every year, there are certain games that always go under the radar unless it is something that totally knocks it out of the park. Ghostwire Tokyo is one of those games that is not extraordinary by any means, but it still excels in whatever it does. If you enjoy games that have out-of-the-box combat mechanics and just allow you to have mindless fun ripping apart enemies, then Ghostwire Tokyo is a must-play.

The fluid mechanics thrive under an absolutely stellar backdrop of Tokyo, with the story being the only drawback of the title. With a massive discount of 50%, for a game that was released just a while back, Ghostwire Tokyo is definitely worth a buy.

Ghostrunner

When you think of platformers, the names that would strike you in the past few years would be games like Ori and The Blind Forest or Hollow Knight. We hadn’t really seen a good number of 3D platformers of late, but Ghostrunner showed how a game can excel in the genre in 3D as well.

Sure, the narrative might be underwhelming for many, but when it comes to Ghostrunner one would barely pay any attention to the narrative. The combat coupled with the parkour-styled world traversal mechanics provides quite a gratifying experience for players who adore fast-paced games. At 60% off, this is just a steal.

Sekiro Shadows Die Twice

If you have tried the Dark Souls games or Bloodborne but didn’t just get into the game because it felt a tad slow, or everything was too overwhelming, Sekiro is a really great place to start. The great thing about Sekiro is that after a point it has the difficulty of the Souls games, but after a point, it all comes down to muscle memory.

While that can be said for all Souls games to some extent, Sekiro really, really relies on parrying. The narrative is excellent, and the gameplay is well, unforgiving but definitely worth it. Also, the cling-clang sounds of those perfect parries will keep you wanting more and striving to get better.

Resident Evil Village

Capcom has been oscillating between action and horror-centric titles in the Resident Evil franchise for quite a while now. After the success of Resident Evil 7, Capcom surprisingly stuck with the more horror-focused approach with Resident Evil Village. And to no one’s surprise, Capcom did end up delivering a title as good as the previous one, if not better.

With over fifty-thousand overwhelmingly positive reviews on Steam, it is one of the most highly rated games of 2021. A DLC is set to release later this year as well, so if you don’t have the game in your library already, this is probably the best time to pick it up for half of its original cost.

Mafia Definitive Edition

There are remasters and remakes, and then there is Mafia Definitive Edition. If you have played the original Mafia game, you might be well aware of the fact that the game hasn’t aged quite well.

However, Hangar 13’s remake has everything one would want to make the game hold up to current day standards despite being true to its core premise. With some jaw-dropping graphics and an array of new mechanics, Mafia Definitive Edition elevates the original experience to a completely new level altogether.
