Steam Summer Sale is here - what games do I need?

Postby The Ben » Thu Jun 11, 2015 6:28 pm

Hi all

The Steam summer sale has started and I am just wondering what games to look out for so I have them at the LAN. (My first)

I have a few stalwarts already (Half Life 2 deathmatch, Counter Strike Source, the whole Unreal Tournament series) and some others, but a list of what games have been played in recent LANs which I can then pick up the games cheap will be a big help.

Just shout out the ones that have been played and I will keep a look out for them! :)

  • Team Fortress 2 (free if u want, better to purchase the upgrade in the market place for it though if u want your online play to have a better experience)
  • Counter-Strike: Source
  • Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (might be played this LAN)
  • Left 4 Dead 1 & 2
  • Trackmania Nations (is free, or you can get the United version off Steam for more content)
  • Worms Reloaded (a must have for LAN)
  • Half Life 2: Deathmatch (also a must have)
  • Flatout 2
  • Quake 3 Arena
  • Mount your friends
  • Payday 2
  • Supreme Commander 1 & 2

All i can think of atm.

KillingFloor 1 & 2 - You can get them in a bundle together which is pretty swish! :)


Sorry for my own and only contribution, AlienX has got it pretty covered. A few of my personal favourites although they don't often get plaid by everyone at the LAN -

The Ship (1920's period everyone's an hitman, and has a bounty. Kill eachother!)
Guns Of Icarus (Steam punk airships, pew pew pew!)
Nosgoth (Like L4D, but like, differnt?)
I'd rather shit in my hands and clap.

Many thanks Alien X - Just picked up no less than ten games I needed on that list (though I have played most of them) saving at least 40% (and in a lot of cases 80%) on all of them. If anyone else thinks of any, just say, I will hunt through steam :)

Remember the steam sale buying guide - if it's not in a flash/daily deal, wait until the last day.

GreyGoo is/was 60% if you like your RTS

Anything else? I have spent far too much on steam this time (not just for the LAN, also some single player stuff and some local coop to play my nephew at) and the Encore sale is now up.

Project CARS is -40% at the moment if you like racing games. Also Assetto Corsa was -50% last time I looked although I haven't played it yet.
