With tons of titles to choose from, it can be overwhelming to sift through them. That's why I made this list of some of the best games to get.

7 Best Games to Buy During Steam Summer Sale 

1. Hollow Knight

Dive into the melancholic yet beautiful kingdom of Hollow Knight. Team Cherry's Metroidvania takes place in Hallownest, overrun by a mysterious infection. You play as the Knight, an insect-like swordsman, who navigates the area to hone his skills and abolish the plague.

Hollow Knight is a critically acclaimed game praised for its stunning art style, brutal gameplay, and atmospheric soundtrack. Its original price is $14.99, but you can get it for $7.49.

2. Hades

Hades is the perfect choice for those who love roguelikes. Follow Zagreus, son of Hades, on his quest to find his mother and understand why she left him.

Known for its compelling story and addictive gameplay, Hades has earned overwhelmingly positive reviews on Steam. It used to be $24.99, but it's temporarily down to $12.49.

3. Elden Ring

Hidetaka Miyazaki, creator of DARK SOULS, and George R. R. Martin, author of A Song of Ice and Fire, brought us the world of the Lands Between. Join some friends or go alone in FromSoftware's RPG, where you explore dungeons, master your preferred fighting style, and defeat formidable enemies.

Elden Ring achieved many awards, like Game of the Year and Best Game Direction, in 2022. Currently, it's about 30% off at $41.99. It's worth trying for those who like dark fantasy games, so get it while you can!

4. God of War

In God of War, Kratos leads the life of a father trying to protect his son, Atreus. Face grotesque foes as Kratos and his son travel to the highest peak of the Nine Realms to spread the ashes of the Greek God's deceased wife.

God of War is often praised for its storytelling and exhilarating combat. Now, you can join the action at $29.99 instead of $49.99.

5. Stardew Valley

For those who want a laid-back gaming experience, try Stardew Valley. It's a farming simulation where you leave your office life behind to take over a farm left by your grandfather.

Stardew Valley holds a special place in people's hearts because it's relaxing and has plenty to do. ConcernedApe's popular game retails for $9.89, about $5.00 cheaper than its original price.

6. Hogwarts Legacy

Hogwarts Legacy immerses players into the wizarding world they've always wanted to be part of. Customize your character, defeat evil beats, and sharpen your magical skills in Hogwarts during the 1800s.

This game by Avalanche Software perfectly captures the beloved Harry Potter franchise and lets you explore its environment to your heart's content. Those waiting for a discount will be happy to know that the game is now available for $47.99 instead of $59.99.

7. Vampire Survivors

Poncle's roguelite quickly became a favorite amongst Steam users. This survival game set in rural Italy makes players take on hordes of enemies for as long as they can.

Death is inevitable, but the game's addictive and straightforward gameplay makes it a hit. Vampire Survivors was already a steal at just $4.99, but now you can get it for $3.74.
