Steam Christmas Deals: Games Under $10
The Steam 2019 Winter Sale only runs for a couple more days, but there are loads of deals on Valve's PC game storefront you won't want to miss out on. Although we're seeing some pretty big discounts on recent games, if you want to get the most out of your cash, it's best to wait until most games are dirt-cheap. If you wait long enough, even the best $60 games turn into bargains, and indie games get to be impulse-buys even quicker.
To help guide your spending this year, we've rounded up the best Steam Winter Sale deals for under $10. From AAA hits of the past to clever indies to modern classics, check out the awesome games you can get while going easy on your wallet. The Steam Winter Sale runs until January 2 at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET.
Along with the discounts, you can also earn tokens to spend at the Steamville Holiday Market. You can get tokens by spending money on games ($1 = 100 tokens) or by completing quests. Tokens can be exchanged for chat stickers, chat effects, and a $5 off coupon to use throughout the sale. The coupon costs 5,000 tokens, so for every $50 you spend, you'll get a $5 off coupon.

Best Deals This Week
BioShock Infinite | $7.49
Celeste | $10
Celeste was one of the best games of 2018. A 2D platformer that revolves around overcoming self-doubt and anxiety, Celeste has brilliant mechanics that evolve the further you scale the game's snowy mountain. It's easily one of my favorite platformers ever, and it even received a brutally challenging free DLC chapter a few months back.
Stardew Valley | $9
Stardew Valley really needs no introduction at this point. The runaway 2016 indie hit is an addictive ode to Harvest Moon. The calming loop of tending to your farm and interacting with villagers in Pelican Town could very well keep you coming back daily for months or even years. It's that good.
Ape Out | $7.49
My personal game of the year, Ape Out is a straightforward action game starring an ape who attempts to escape captivity. It's ultra-violent and settles into a oddly beautiful rhythm thanks to its jazzy soundtrack that accompanies your actions. Ape Out can be completed in a few hours, but it's a relentlessly entertaining trip.
Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice | $10
Senua's Saga: Hellblade II stole the show at The Game Awards thanks to a harrowing reveal trailer. The Ninja Theory-developed sequel is the first game officially announced for the Xbox Series X. Now's a great time to play the original, Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice, a chilling action game set in Viking Hell that revolves around madness.
What Remains of Edith Finch | $8
What Remains of Edith Finch is a beautiful and heartbreaking walking sim that gives you a tour of the Finch household from Edith's perspective. She's the only living member of the family, and you'll discover why as you make your way through this poignant journey. This is a can't-miss experience for fans of narrative-focused games.
Hollow Knight | $7.49
Team Cherry's Hollow Knight is one of the best Metroidvanias ever. The gorgeous art style initially stands out, but Hollow Knight's true greatness comes from uncovering its secrets. The vast and sprawling world is a delight to explore, and the enemies that inhabit it provide a formidable challenge. It's a lengthy game that, rather remarkably, gets better the more you play. With Hollow Knight: Silksong on the horizon (hopefully in 2020), it's a great time to catch up.
Gris | $8.49
Gris is quite possibly the most beautiful game I've ever played. It's a platformer in practice, but Gris is more about taking in the sights and sounds, which morph and evolve the further you progress. It has an important story to tell and relays it almost entirely through its imagery and music.
Moonlighter | $8
Moonlighter holds dual identities. It's a town management sim by day, demanding that you sell your wares to townsfolk in your shop. But by night you head north to the dungeons to explore for new items to sell and battle with baddies both big and small. It's basically a combination of Stardew Valley and The Binding of Isaac. In short, Moonlighter rules.
