Day 11: June 29, 2014

Our pick: Terraria -- $1.99 (-80%)

The Steam sale is drawing to a close, and that means the Summer Adventure is over as well. There are a lot of deals from earlier in the week live now, so if you missed out before, now's your time to go back and score some discounted games.

And be sure to check out GOG.com for their sales on classic PC games as well. You can get some great titles that are completely DRM-free for ridiculously low prices (including every Bullfrog game for 85% off -- $9.79).

Day 10: June 28, 2014

Our pick: Portal 2 -- $4.99 (-75%)

How do you follow up one of the greatest PC games of all time? With a sequel that's even more brilliant, hilarious, and ingenious than the original. Portal 2 picks up where the original ended adding in new test chambers with devious but thrilling new mechanics. The game also introduces a co-op mode, so you should probably pick up an extra copy for one of your friends. Portal 2 two packs are selling for $8.74, or you can go for the game plus Portal 1 for $6.24 in case you haven't played the first one yet.

Day 9: June 27, 2014

Our pick: Payday 2 -- $5.99 (-80%)

Payday 2 is a riotous co-op heist-fest where you and three of your friends gang up for a crime spree around Washington D.C., and whether you make a scot-free getaway, or the s*** hits the fan while you're holed up in a bank vault, there are plenty of opportunities for drama and hilarity within. For the next 48 hours, Payday 2 is a steal on Steam at only $5.99. Or, if you want to make sure that you've got a full crew to ride with, you can pick up a four-pack, which includes four Payday 2 licenses, for $17.99, which is just over half of the game's normal price of $29.99.

Day 8: June 26, 2014

Our pick: Dishonored -- $4.99 (-75%)

Great stealth games are few and far between, so it was no surprise that Dishonored was celebrated when it was first released in 2012. Not only did the game feature rock solid stealth mechanics, it also gave us a compelling fictional world in which to revel in. At $4.99, Dishonored is a great bargain, and is certainly a must-buy if you've never experienced the adventures of Corvo before.

Day 7: June 25, 2014

Our pick: Bioshock Infinite -- $7.49 (-75%)

If you haven't yet had a chance to experience one of the most intriguing shooters released in recent years, then now's your opportunity to do it on the cheap. Bioshock Infinite released to critical acclaim in March 2013, and is both an engaging shooter and a compelling narrative, two hallmarks of the much-lauded Bioshock series. At $7.49, Bioshock Infinite is already a bargain, but if you a few more extra dollars, then Steam is also selling a Bioshock triple pack (which includes the previous two games as well as Infinite) for $10.19.

Day 6: June 24, 2014

Our pick: Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons -- $2.99 (-80%)

Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons, takes a unique control scheme and turns it into part of the story. Your left control stick controls one brother, and youe right stick the other as you explore the fantastical--and at times terrifying--world these siblings inhabit. It's essentially single-player co-op, and the story is as moving and emotional as its gameplay is original.

Day 5: June 23, 2014

Our pick: FTL: Faster Than Light -- $3.99 (-60%)

Almost two years after the game’s initial release, our Twitter feeds still erupt with FTL-related curses from time to time, with my friends venting their triumphs and frustrations when facing a particularly adamant set of foes. This space sim/roguelike hybrid is special--simple to look at yet teeming with strategic possibilities and nail-biting encounters. Missing out on FTL would be a disaster of galactic proportions.

Day 4: June 22, 2014

Our pick: Tomb Raider -- $4.99 (-75%)

Tomb Raider's sequel, Rise of the Tomb Raider, was announced at E3 earlier this month, and there's also the great co-op action game Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris, but if you still haven't given it a try, this is the game to play while you wait. The gritty series reboot tells the story of Lara's origins and how she became the hardened adventurer we know her as today.

Day 3: June 21, 2014

Our pick: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim -- $4.99 (-75%)

The epic fantasy RPG has seen deep discounts before, but there's no better time than now to pick it up if you've been waiting. Explore the open-world of Skyrim, customize your character and playstyle, and maybe even fight some dragons. You can also get the Legendary Edition of the game, complete with all the DLC expansions, for just $13.59.

Day 2: June 20, 2014

Our pick: Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs--$4.99 (-75%)

Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs, the follow-up to the genuinely frightening Amnesia: The Dark Descent, is a steal on the Steam Summer sale today at 75% off. Machine for Pigs is set in the same universe as the original, but it follows a new story and cast of characters, so it's a great place to start if you're looking for a horror fix on a budget (though the original is also currently going for 80% off and you can get both games together for only $6.99).

Day 1: June 19, 2014

Our pick: Far Cry 3--$7.49 (-75%)

The Far Cry series has always been ambitious, and it culminated with the sprawling, enthralling, and sometimes narratively challenging Far Cry 3. If you're looking for a shooter that eschews the military feel most others in the genre embrace, then you can't go wrong with this outstanding game. Plus, with Far Cry 4 coming out later this year, now's a great time to catch up on the last game in this intriguing series.
