Sales can get any gamer excited, but Steam Sales are of a whole different caliber. The Steam Summer Sale is officially underway and will last until July 5. Prices for everything indie as well as AAA get significant cuts as high as 85 percent off.
Perennial best-seller Grand Theft Auto V is 50 percent off at $29.99, Nier: Automata is 30 percent off at $41.99. What appears to be the best deal is Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor Game of the Year Edition–$3.99 after an 80 percent price cut.
Franchise-wide sales are also taking place with Call of Duty titles being 0 to 50 percent off, the same goes for Final Fantasy titles.
With the sales come the crowds and some users are experiencing issues with Steam itself. "Sorry, the Steam Store is experiencing some heavy load right now. Please try again later," one such error states.
The hashtag #SteamSummerSale is ahem, picking up steam on Twitter. It's highly recommended (maybe when you encounter an error page) to peruse the various memes the tag has to offer.
